Victorinox INOX Mechanical – 241834
Let’s start with the Victorinox factory, famous for having invented the famous Swiss army knife which needs no introduction. The INOX consists of a round stainless steel case (of course) 43 mm in diameter and 13.7 mm thick.
The flat sapphire crystal has undergone a triple anti-reflective treatment and reveals a blue dial with a clous de Paris finish including stick-type indexes. This is decorated with a set of luminescent “stick” type hands, the seconds hand at the top of which is red for added sportiness.
The date is placed discreetly at 4:30 a.m. for greater comfort in reading the time. This men watch features a screw-down crown and a transparent back, two elements guaranteeing water resistance to a depth of 200 meters. Moreover, the bracelet is a hybrid of wood and leather allowing you to jump into the water.
Everything is powered by the Swiss automatic movement ETA 2824-2 nicknamed the “tractor” because of its reliability, precision and robustness!

Seiko Prospex Alpinist Rock Face – SPB355J1
Between modernity and a great heritage in the field of polar expeditions in the 1960s, the Alpinist is available here in a round case measuring 39 mm in diameter and 13.2 mm thick. We can see the addition of a crown at 4 o’clock to activate the compass function located on the periphery of the dial.
The sapphire crystal of this automatic watch includes a magnifying glass overlooking the date window positioned at precisely 3 o’clock and a gray dial with a very sober powdered texture revealing applied blue Arabic numerals and indexes.
The set of luminescent hands includes the hour and minute hands in cathedral format for a confident retro feel. The screwed crown and bottom ensure water resistance to 20 atmospheres, making this piece ideal for swimming.
The curious will be able to observe the in-house 6R35 movement on the back of the watch, an automatic caliber guaranteeing 70 hours of power reserve. Finally, the 20 millimeter fabric bracelet is ideal for immersion and will be easily replaceable by a stainless steel or real leather model if you wish to personalize this Seiko to your image.

Hamilton Khaki Field – H69459530
A true monument of watchmaking, the Khaki Field returns in a bronze version with a diameter of 38 mm and a thickness of 12 mm.
The round-shaped case is overlooked by a sapphire glass difficult to scratch revealing a black dial having received time markers in the format military over 12 and 24 hours. We can, for example, simultaneously read 3 a.m. PM or 3 p.m.
The luminescence of the hands respects the “endowment watch” side of the Khaki Field and the standard 20 millimeter lug space receives a dark brown cowhide leather strap with a smooth texture.
Water resistance is advertised at 5 ATM, therefore we advise you not to swim with your timepiece on your wrist.
THE mechanical movement with manual winding H-50 sets an example by offering a power reserve of up to 80 hours.

Casio G-Shock Capsule Virtual Rainbow – DW-6900RGB-1

Made in a 50 mm diameter case in very resistant black resin with a thickness of 18.7 mm, the Virtual Rainbow Capsule shines with the play of rainbow colors that takes place on its dial.
Its featherweight of 67 grams will make you forget the imposing size of this digital watch on your wrist. As is often the case with Casio, there are many functions such as a chronograph, an alarm, a countdown, a very practical calendar as well as a 12 or 24 hour hour format.
Coupled with a seal of 20 bar, the resin bracelet shows us once again that we are indeed facing an extreme and radical timepiece.
