Tolentino Watches Microbrand

In primo piano

Just discovered a new Microbrand from Italy called Tolentino!

Every time I discover new watches I feel very happy but at the same time especially proud when the brand is from Italy.

Tolentino is a new watch brand founded by Cesare Angrisani in 2020 with headquarters in Cercola (NA).

Tolentino brand is born with the precise purpose of presenting on the market a new generation of fine watches. Central to their project is the concept of quality.

They seek the highest quality throughout the production chain: quality of materials, quality of components, quality of processing, quality of processes and quality of business choices made.

The mission of Tolentino is clear, creating a high quality product that has an affordable price and for this reason they decided to realize a Swiss Made watch.

In order to mark their timepieces with the Swiss Made seal, synonymous with the best watchmaking in the world, together with their Swiss partners they complete the technical development of the design up to prototyping, The entire assembly and testing is carried out in Switzerland.

Their watches feature only Swiss-made automatic movements.

In December 2020, once the business plan was planned and structured, Tolentino presented the business project with particular reference to the production of our first line of watches at Invitalia, very important government agency for the development of new businesses, recognizing the merit of their project by providing them in October 2021 a soft financing that put Tolentino in the correct position to start the business.

Tolentino Undici/11 – the first collection

The first collection of Tolentino watches is called Undici/11 and we are talking about a Swiss Made diver.

Please take a look to the dial. I know there are too many swiss made diver watches but I am very happy to say that this is something special.

You can see from this photo the elements that make this watch unique.

The dial in its three-dimensionality, the ceramic bezel, the satin finish of the case together with the shiny parts. Everything perfectly in harmony.

Every choice regarding the creation of this timepiece is based on the integration of technical, qualitative, stylistic and functional aspects.

With a case of just 40 mm this watch is perfect for every wrist size.

Bezel and dials are available in different colors and there are 2 type of strap (mailanese mesh and oyster bracelet) included into the affordable retail price of 920€

Tolentino Undici/11 is the Swiss Made diving watch that combines high performance, quality materials, workmanship and high-end details at a mid-range price, able to make a difference every single day.

In August 2022 Tolentino launched a pre-order campaign on Kickstarter, which anticipates the release of Eleven/11 scheduled for December 2022, which collected 162% of the goal set in 30 days.

The watches are available in different colors with ceramic bezel and the dial is very interesting with a 3-dimensional appearance looks even more modern.

Norrona Diver

In primo piano

Swiss watchmaker Ulysse Nardin collaborates with the Norwegian outdoor sportswear brand Norrľna, known for its premium and sustainable outerwear and presents the new DIVER NORRƠNA Arctic Night.

The timepiece, a limited edition of 29, will be sold exclusively together with an arktis Gore-Tex. Pro Norrơna jacket. This collaboration testifies to the shared commitment of Ulysse Nardin and Norrơna to the environment through the use of alternative and sustainable materials.

On the occasion of the launch of the new watch, Ulysse Nardin is pleased to announce his partnership with the Norwegian polar explorer Bőrge Ousland, an active member of the Norrơna family.

During his last expedition to the Arctic Circle, Bőrge Ousland wore the DIVER NORRƠNA Arctic Night along with the arktis Gore-Tex Pro Norrơna jacket, which he designed in collaboration with Norrơna.

COLLABORATION FOR A COMMON GOAL

The collaboration between the two brands is no surprise: both share the same love for nature and aspire to move to a “more circular model” using alternative materials in their respective sectors.

The two brands are embarking on a decisive path towards more sustainable creations.

• 1860: Ulysse Nardin, a Swiss watchmaker from the majestic Jura Mountains, begins selling on-board marine chronometers for explorers, sailors and navigators from around the world, allowing them to navigate the open sea. Today, five generations later, Ulysse Nardin is an independent manufacturer.

1929: Jőrgen Jőrgensen, a Norwegian outdoor enthusiast, began his search for more durable outdoor equipment to use in Norway’s rugged and rugged territories. Today, four generations later, Norrơna is still a family business.

Ulysse Nardin unveils the DIVER NORRƠNA Arctic Night, a watch that carries the iconic logo, DNA and sustainability commitments of both brands.

Just six months after the launch of the DIVER THE OCEAN RACE in collaboration with THE OCEAN RACE, the DIVER NORRƠNA Arctic Night represents a new black-colored version of the most sustainable watch in Ulysse Nardin’s portfolio to date.

Inspired by the Norwegian landscape, with its fjords and volcanic rocks, the colour palette of this timepiece, black, grey and white, recalls deep geological formations, dark and ancestral, which constitute the oldest and best preserved sedimentary rocks on the planet.

The new project represents the commitment of both houses to safeguard a future for our planet, starting from the poles.

The sea ice helps regulate the terrestrial climate and it is known that the warming of the polar oceans has strong repercussions both on the species that inhabit these territories and on us. This collaboration is a call to action.

Norrona Diver THE RECYCLED PARTS OF THE ARCTIC NIGHT DIVER

  • Case side and the case back of the new DIVER NORRƠNA are made to 40% in Carbonium. and 60% with recycled fishing nets Nylo ³ (suppliers: Lavoisier Composite and FIL&FAB, France)
  • stainless steel watch case consists of 80% recycled automotive materials (supplier: Voestalpine Boehler, Austria)
  • bezel decoration is made of 100% Carbonium®
  • strap with scratch-resistant closure is made with fishing nets recycled to the
    100% (supplier: JTTI, France)
  • Finally, all components of the UN-118 automatic manufacturing movement
    are from Switzerland, almost all within a radius of 30 km

The CARBONIUM®

Carboniumķ consists of the same fibers used for the fuselage and wings of the latest generation aircraft.

Production of Carbonium” has a 40% lower environmental impact than other carbon composites, since it uses aircraft parts cuttings. The use of regenerated material clearly underlines once again the innovative and bold spirit of the brand.

THE NYLO®

Other alternative material used in the watch is called Nylo ľ. (supplier FIL&FAB). The goal is to raise awareness by creating “new from the old” and regenerating materials, especially plastic.

This process of regenerating networks underlines Ulysse Nardin’s interest in a circular economic model.

In fact, the brand has placed its trust in the young Breton designers who created the first fishing net recycling business in France. FIL&FAB, a start-up in the field of industrial design and transition, recovers discarded nets in French fishing ports and recycles them in the form of polyamide granules called Nylo.

The DIVER NORRƠNA Arctic Night is a limited edition of only 29 pieces (a nod to 1929, year of foundation of NORRƠNA), all numbered from 1 to 29 and therefore unique.

The watch will be sold together with the arktis Gore-Tex PRO NORRĽNA jacket and will be available exclusively on www.ulysse-nardin.com, www.norrona.com and in Norrľna flagship stores in New York, Munich Oslo, Stockholm, from 2 November 2022, for the price of 11’900 CHF/11’300 EUR/ 12’600 USD.

Geckota Sea Hunter Slimline

In primo piano

New review today of one of the most interesting brand you can find in the watch community and I am talking about Geckota watches!

I had the opportunity to review the new Geckota Sea Hunter Slimline Green Sunburst.

This watch is really comfortable on the wrist and I have to say that I love a lot wear this timepiece.

This watch has very good dimension especially thanks to the case with just 12 mm thickness and 40 mm diameter.

About the movement the Geckota Hunter Slimline is powered by the premium Miyota 9039.

There are different color options you can check on Geckota site but my favourite was absolutely this green sunburst and this is why I choosed this one to review.

In particular I absolutely love the no bezel choice and thanks to this the watch has a very modern look.

Options for the Slimline collection

Geckota Sea Hunter Slimline – Why buy?

I think that this is a good everyday watch and Geckota is making new cool timepieces every year.

The ratio quality price is honest for what you get and also the bracelet gives a good feeling on the wrist.

The bracelet has 2 different finishes and you can’t stop looking at it.

Probably just 2 points where the brand can make a little improvement are the clasp and the back of the case but as we know there is always the possibility to improve every year from every brand.

Details

I liked a lot the hands of this timepiece and especially the super clean dial with this green sunburst really visible.

The hands and hour markers are lumed with Super-LumiNova® and are housed under a curved edge-box sapphire crystal with an underside anti-reflective coating

Remember also that despite the very slim case this watch is 200 m water resistent so you can use it also in a lot of different situation.

Escudo Watches Microbrand

It is time to discover new watches as always and I just found on the internet a very interesting microbrand called Escudo based on entry level luxury 39 mm diver (200m Water resistent) and sporty timepieces.

This brand is really interesting because of the different approach the watchmakers want to give to their models.

These watches are  inspired by the Portuguese & British explorers and that is why the brand name and logo is “Escudo“, because of the name for the shield within the Portuguese coat of arms and also the Portuguese currency, pre Euro.

This microbrand was founded by Simon Correia and Richard Johnson, long-term watch collectors and enthusiasts.

Escudo Watches – discovering the watch

As I told you before we are talking about the first entry level price range of luxury and considering that is a young brand it is also really important giving the correct attention to the price and in particular why I am presenting you these watches.

First of all Escudo watches are conceived, designed and developed in the UK and Portugal, using Swiss movements, and collaborating with quality watch manufacturers from both UK and Switzerland.

Final assembly is in the UK.

The watch is really good looking and behind every single component there is a true research.

The caseback, bezel, indexes, dial, strap, everything is conceived in a really cool and modern way with also a reminder to the past.

When you will see this diver you will understand the true inspiration by Portugal.

Caeback

The caseback consists of a two-piece closed case-back design to ensure the shield logo is constantly in the vertical plane and marked to show the limited edition number

Lume

The lume is also really well made and you can find it both on the indexes, hands and bezel. Lume consists of a Grade A 7750 Super-LumiNova® vintage cream.

Bezel

Bronze uni-directional turning with a dual-bearing action for longevity and precision and featuring 3D lumed numbers and markers and a bi-coloured time elapsed triangle showing the Portuguese flag colours.

Matt aluminium bezel insert complementing the dial colour.

Strap

Escudo leather straps are entirely handmade from premium Italian Vacchetta leather.

The vegetable tanned leather is finished in wooden vats with animal fats and waxes, producing a full-grain leather with a buttery smooth finish.

Caliber

Swiss Made Escudo Calibre 1488 base Sellita SW200-1 no date.Subtly decoratedPower reserve 38hrs26 Jewels Frequency 28,800 A/h, 4hz

Why buy?

This watch has a lot of features that makes the price not so high and despite all I have to say really good ratio quality/price.

The packaging looks awesome (a very nice case with tool watch), the site and user experience is really clear and good in particular for all the shipping informations.

This diver has a premium swiss made movement and there is a lot of research behind Escudo watches.

For all these reasons you will see Escudo watches into the Microbrands Book 2023!

Horon watches is the new Microbrand i want to present you today!

They are launching their first timepiece, the Ocean Hunter, an incredible Dive Watch collection inspired by the ocean and intrepid exploration.

It’s a powerful masterpiece, boasting incredible materials, including genuine meteorite!

The Ocean Hunter features a 42mm fully machined, marine-grade stainless steel case with 300m water resistance, fortified by a screw-down crown.

This dive watch has a unique two-tone bezel.

This element of the watch is something that Horon Watches worked hard on to get perfectly precise.

In order to achieve the two-tone appearance, the heating and cooling process must be carefully controlled, this is a challenging task to machine, and is a time-consuming exercise.

Once molded, the ceramic still needs to undergo a circular brush action, to smoothen out the surface.

This diver uses premium Super-LumiNova indices in a combination of vivid luminous blue (BGW9) and brilliant luminous light green(C3).

This effective blend of indices allows for efficient time reading under all conditions.

All ARETHUSA watches are timekeeping instruments optimized for travel and are designed to evoke the spirit of exploration.

In the case of the World Diver, they considered the needs of the globetrotting recreational diver while visiting dive locations around the world.

The minimalist central small-seconds hand is inspired by the sweep of an analog radar scope!

Their cases are CNC milled from solid billet 316L stainless steel and thoroughly tested to ensure reliable performance on any adventure.
