FM202 Dome watch

Simple white face on which rotates blue hands. Hours, minutes and seconds Plus a Power Reserve indicator, so you know, how long it has to run – without either simply keeping it on your wrist, or winding it – your choice

Junkers – revival & update

Another feature is in the wearing.  It is one of those watches that for whatever reason, just feels right on the wrist, it is extremely comfortable and a delight to wear and certainly makes me interested in enlarging my Junkers collection

Through and through.

This watch has a proper Sapphire crystal over a superbly made and subtly dark coloured, high strength Zirconia full hollow ceramic case.  And being hollow, the entire movement working detail can be seen from either front or back, so a true skeleton.

Simple complication

it’s one of those models that Casio are very, very good at. It looks good, it’s really quite simple to use, yet with amazing complications, easy to see, very accurate, neat on the wrist – and it’s very difficult to beat – AND it is VERY affordable.

Double Date

The watch dial is also round, but the case, not quite so and overall it is VERY clear to read.  Add this to the large effective Date indication @6 and what we have is a really nice watch.

Interesting finds – Ladies

Great gold coloured case with an off yellow dial and VERY clear to read with those large dark hands, small seconds index and actually a pretty decent size date window @3. (some of their Gents models don’t).

Bauhaus by name

there’s something about the subtle and under-stated design, from the small numeral delicacy and the two-tone asymmetric width hands, that just lifts them to a higher level
