Let’s not hide our faces because, deep down, we know well, vacations unfortunately don’t last forever! If in September the little ones join their friends at school, the adults make their big return to the office after several weeks of relaxation in the Sun.
So, to reunite with your colleagues in style, what could be better than a new beautiful, reliable watch with a gently remarkable style? It is therefore quite natural that Swiss Made Watch Magazine invites you to discover today 3 models which will delight both men and women.
Festina Swiss Made – F20013/3
Let’s open this special back-to-school selection with a classic ladies watch from the Festina brand, presented here in a most interesting shade of navy blue. The genuine leather strap revealing a very distinguished crocodile pattern takes on this superb color, as does the sunray dial.
With a diameter of 29.30 mm and a low thickness made possible by its Swiss quartz movement, this two-hand watch decorated with 12 stick indexes represents the quintessence of the feminine dress watch. The absence of a seconds hand provides a feeling of serenity here and ultimately makes us forget that we are looking at a model running on a battery. Its traditional pin buckle ensures fine and effortless adjustment which will allow you to wear it comfortably, a bit like a second skin after all!
Its 316L stainless steel case with a shiny polished finish is adorned with a scratch-resistant sapphire glassa combo of modern materials that will allow this little tocante to fit in with both classic and more contemporary outfits.
Orient Mako 40 – RA-AC0Q07V
Let’s now change gears with this new diver with a discreetly sporty character which undoubtedly seems a little familiar to you! Quite simply a must-have for collectors around the world, the Mako range from the Japanese house Orient is enriched this year with a men’s watch offered in an original configuration.
It must be said that this piece, which beautifully showcases lavender purple, through its colored dial, is positioned as a real UFO in the watchmaking world. The metal bezel makes it possible here to create a set of the most beautiful effect by keeping our eye focused on this very particular shade. Because yes, it’s not just Tiffany blue in life!
Driven by an in-house automatic caliber East F6722 offering a power reserve of 40 hours, the watch is equipped with a practical stop seconds device allowing you to adjust it to the nearest second. A function that will delight all perfectionists!
And, several very appreciable details have been hidden all over the tocante. The tip of the second hand reveals a slightly retro orange, the hour and minute hands have been openworked near their base, the logo taking place on the upper part of the dial is applied and the date window at 3 o’clock is surrounded by a chrome window. So many elements which, coupled with triangular and trapezoidal indexes, would almost give us the impression of not having to deal with a diving watch water resistant to 200 meters. We have in front of us a piece that actually hides its game well!
Vulcan Skindiver – Black
You are quite trendy vintage and looking for a piece that can let your style be fully inspired? With this creation straight out of the Vulcain workshops, we have an interesting option to offer you.
As its name clearly indicates, this reference is inspired by the “Skindiver” type diving watches that appeared in the 1960s, models at the time intended for recreational diving, not professional diving!
The dial and the hands accommodate SuperLuminova luminescent material with a patina effect allowing easy reading of the time in dark and nocturnal environments. With its diameter of 38 mm and a small thickness measured at 12.2 mm, this automatic watch designed for men will perfectly suit female wrists who appreciate adorning themselves with models with a particular character.
Powered by a caliber ETA 2824 Offering a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour, this piece with a matte black dial has no date, a point that will please purists of antique references. Mounted on a black leather strap, you will only have to change it for a pretty Tropic type rubber in order to explore the seabed in complete peace of mind. Its water resistance to 20 atmospheres (or 20 bar) is a real asset!
Whether you are more of a sports watch or a classic watch, whether you prefer sober models or, on the contrary, more colorful pieces, one thing is certain… each of these references presented here will allow you to get back to school on the right foot by admirably complimenting your tanned complexion!
