Andre Belfort Terra Nova: Tradition in blue

I recently had the opportunity to lead in a wrist Andre Belfort for barely a week (five days). Readers of this blog know by now that necessarily am not the biggest fan traditional design watches. There are some features of the watches that do not necessarily personally I like – but if the overall impression of a watch remains harmonious, is also fine for me. The Terra Nova de André Belfort is one of those cases. I could imagine taking it for much longer than a week low.

Hindenberg Conqueror: The noble conquistador

Watches for men can exhibit quietly that are for men.And I mean that in the sense topic imaginable: to remain distinctive, rough, angular, also in dark colors. The Hindenberg Conqueror is exactly a watch like this.

What first strikes me is its open balance wheel.Personally, I think this design element is almost generally good, and the Hindenburg is no different. Even the color of the clock, the black tone with white, silver and red contrasting colors cause me the impression of being in a tribute to the races. Conqueror, conqueror, also comes from pearls.

No retro, but cool: Hindenberg Vintage Aviator

At this point it is no longer a novelty for regular readers of my blog I’m a big fan of retro watches. I like more, of course, the original from the 60s, 70s and 80s, but the retro design certainly follows right behind them.

And then there is a type of design that I would not qualify as “retro” but as “vintage”. These are watches whose exterior reminds rather the steampunk look as design, rather than the 60s to 80. The Hindenberg Vintage Aviator it is such a candidate. It seems a part of an old machine, and stainless steel designed intentionally grainy and with a used look is crucial part of it. The bezel takes this a step further. It looks to me like a spiral steel, even after long years of use in the factory still makes its service reliably.
