Been in Germany for a few weeks and managed to come away with another designer watch that for me is a neat dress idea.
A very modern take on the old “drivers” model idea where the wearer if driving a car for example, can see the time clearly without moving the wrist on the steering wheel. The clever old idea of turning the watch face/dial by a few degrees makes all the difference.
With the “Turn” series from Rolf Cremer in such a large range of dial and strap color combinations, it really is a watch for the dress conscious amongst us and ideal for that night out. It’s also that little bit different and draws a few comments I can tell you.
It is also, owing to it’s neat dimensions, a true unisex model at just 25 mm wide, 7 mm depth and 35 mm lug to lug. Perhaps seen as rather small for the more masculine, but as a dress watch under a shirt cuff, it works well.
Nothing extraordinary about the watch technically of course, though it comes with a nice leather strap, Titan tough glass and an amazing range of color combinations.
Quartz movement, basic analog time indication with center seconds hand and in various colors. I like this particular combination 491816 (retails for 149.99 Euros) as it’s nice and clear to read, but there are plenty to choose from to suit your particular needs. The leather straps are available as separate purchases should you wish to change the look.
I would have liked to have found this range of watches before Christmas as they will certainly make good and reasonable cost gift ideas for either sex and I’ll definitely keep a note of them for future reference.
Note that Rolf Cremer of Germany manufacture a wide range of other models and their web site may be of interest – HERE.
