Davosa World Traveler Automatic
I think the first occasion when I ran over this brand was a promotion in one of those locally available magazines during a flight. To be straightforward I couldn’t say whether this was a restored old brand or a genuinely new company. Well it’s a smidgen of both. Davosa was established in 1993 in Germany where the brand actually dwells. Notwithstanding the German central command the watches are Swiss made.
The individuals behind the brand anyway have a long history around here. The Hasler family has been engaged with watchmaking since the 19th century. With their insight and experience the Davosa lays on solid pillars.
Davosa has an assortment of watches to bring to the table. From quartz to mechanical, jumper to steer there are numerous models you can browse. They additionally offer some extraordinary embellishments. A portion of the pieces fall under similar plan as numerous different brands of the classification yet the World Traveler is extraordinary. With its unmistakable plan it stands apart of the other Davose models.
After opening the watch box the originally believed that comes to your psyche is that this is an uncommonly huge watch. The case isn’t excessively thick (approx. 12mm for the GMT just, and 15mm for the chronograph rendition) and its plan is exceptionally old style yet the measurement is an astounding 44mm.
Yet because of the case size extent it doesn’t feel too huge on your wrist. It isn’t for the cowardly that is without a doubt, yet don’t be hesitant to attempt it as it wears a lot more modest than a Panerai for example. This could be the impact of the dark non-turning bezel that pleasantly outlines the dim blue (or silver dial). I got the blue dial form, which has a dim tone, practically dark ish from specific points. This additionally brings about the “contracting” of the watch optically.
The crown is screw-down obviously to guarantee the water opposition of the watch up to 5ATM. After you haul the crown out there is not all that much, in first position you can set the GMT hand (screwing it clockwise) and the date (screwing it counterclockwise) in the second position you set the time. The case is easy: cleaned and brushed stainless steel.
The case houses the core of the watch: ETA’s two work ponies, type 2893-2 for the GMT and the exemplary ETA/Valjoux 7754 for the chronograph variant. Similarly as with most present day watches, the hands and records are applied with Super LumiNova. Talking about the lists, they are lifted and hand applied onto the dial witch is covered by sapphire precious stone. Flip the watch over to have a look inside through the transparent case back and it uncovers the rhodinised development and the rotor adorned with Cotes de Genéve. The Davosa World Traveler is just accessible on a leather lash (22mm between the lugs). The watch I explored went ahead a dull earthy colored cowhide calf tie, with crocodile grain.
The Davosa World Traveler reference 161.501.45 is evaluated at €1098 Euro. The chronograph variant comes at €1998 Euro. For €1098 Euro, you will get a programmed watch with a fascinating – and particularly helpful – complication. On the off chance that you are a continuous explorer, work with individuals in various time regions or have companions/family in various time regions, it will be a pleasant companion.
The Davosa World Traveler comes with that crazy 1970’s configuration however is by all methods a cutting edge watch, with its 44mm width and sapphire precious stone. I love the way that this watch addresses such a lot of significant worth for cash and would surely recommend it to individuals who are on the lookout for a moderate watch with GMT function.
