And they will live a long time because in them there is a mechanism 2824-2 – the most famous product of the largest manufacturer of watch components – the ETA factory. Products of Breitling, Tag Heuer, Tudor, Longines and other brands from high price segments worked and work on it.
Case diameter of polished stainless steel – 42 mm. It is a universal size suitable for any wrist. With 100 meters of water protection, you do not need to take off your watch if you wish to swim. A molded bracelet with a folding clasp is practical when exposed to water and sweat, which leather straps are afraid of.
The design is made in the style of Montgomery railway dials. This type was first used on the US railways from the 20s of the last century. It is simple, contrasted and functional, as the driver, glancing at the clock, had to see the main thing – hours and minutes, without unnecessary scales.
Triangles indicate each mark off a quarter of an hour (15, 30, 45 minutes), and squares indicate the other components of an hour. They and the arrows are covered with the light-accumulating compound Luminova, which gives a sufficient glow in the dark to determine the time. The red second’s hand is also an element of the design of railway clocks, but of others, developed in Switzerland in 1953.
Sapphire crystal protects the watch on both sides. The owner can not worry about scratches and admire the work of the classic Swiss movement. It’s the combination with a practical steel case and bracelet, historical design and sapphire crystal – a perfect set especially if they were made only 500.
