The splendor of a “Nova”

The radiating motif of the new Astron GPS Solar is inspired by the formation of a Nova in the night sky.

Nova is one of nature’s most remarkable astronomical phenomena.

Long regarded as the creation of a new star, a Nova takes the form of a sudden and dazzling light emission.

Tinanium choice

Titanium case and bracelet are as durable as stainless steel and at the same time 40% lighter.

The extra-hard coating and ceramic bezel cover protect the watch from scratches.

The sapphire crystal has a super transparent coating, which eliminates any reflection thus offering optimal visibility from any angle, while the Lumibrite on the hands and indexes ensures perfect readability even in low light conditions.

A new limited edition for the 10th anniversary of the Astron GPS Solar Inspired by the energy of a Supernova.

Built to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the Seiko Astron GPS Solar, this extraordinary watch, which mounts the latest caliber GPS Solar 5X53 Seiko, has a dial with a radial pattern that echoes the explosive power of a Supernova.

When the first Astron GPS Solar watch was unveiled in 2012 it ushered in a new era for watchmaking technology.

The steady advancement of Seiko’s Solar GPS technology over the past decade has ensured that Astron’s star shines brighter than ever in the watchmaking firmament.

With its design inspired by the Supernova, the delicate lamé pattern of the dial and its cutting-edge functionality, this new limited edition Astron GPS watch of 1,500 pieces pays tribute to a great tradition.

Utilizing the ‘Venture’ model of Singapore-based watch manufacturer BOLDR Supply Company, the watch is available for pre-order today, with a fixed amount of proceeds going towards multiple COVID-19 relief funds.

Inspired by the brave and selfless healthcare community on the frontlines of COVID-19, this special edition Venture is a medic-friendly chronograph watch that can be used to measure pulse rates and respiratory counts.

The BOLDR Venture Medic Field utilizes an ultra-tough & super light 38mm titanium case, powered by a SII VK64 Mecaquartz Chronograph movement.

The watch face is shielded by a flat sapphire crystal lens and has clearly marked indexes and specific pulse-tracking functionalities.

It is highly durable with water resistance up to 200m, so there’s no need to worry about impact damage or getting it wet while washing hands.

BOLDR Venture Field Medic

The combination of the Venture’s ultra-tough features with a pulsometer and respiratory scale gave birth to the concept of a ‘Field Medic’ watch.

Built for healthcare workers and watch enthusiasts in general, make the most out this tough tool watch while doing your part in giving back for a good cause.

The mechanics are simple – easily count off heart and respiratory rates within a few seconds by using the precise graduated scales on the dial.

This saves valuable time compared to the traditional way. Pulse rates per minute are generally counted in a 15 or 30 seconds window; this watch uses a 30 seconds count as it gives a more accurate reading.

Simply activate the chronograph and count the specified number of beats, stop the chronograph at the corresponding mark, and take a reading.

The central seconds-hand will now be pointing to your required measurements in counts per minute. A clearly visible date window also saves precious seconds in the field, giving information at a glance while filling in pages of detailed notes.

Recensione Undone Batman

Eccoci con una nuova recensione dedicata al Batman Undone, un cronografo molto particolare e ispirato al famoso uomo pipistrello in occasione del suo 80esimo anniversario.

Diverse sono le caratteristiche di questo segnatempo che lo rendono davvero unico. Quadrante, fondello, cinturino e packaging, il tutto richiama a Batman, rendendo l’orologio un ottimo oggetto da collezione soprattutto per i più appassionati al mondo DC Comics e all’uomo mascherato.

Il packaging si presenta come un cofanetto, ovviamente di colore nero e con il logo di Batman all’esterno. All’interno del cofanetto troviamo l’orologio, insieme a una scheda che ne attesta l’autenticità.

Titanio, una scelta innovativa

La prima cosa che ho notato di questo segnatempo è stata la scelta del titanio come materiale per la realizzazione della cassa (la quale forma a cuscinetto ricorda molto il Tag Heuer Camaro). Ovviamente essendo il titanio il 40% più leggero dell’acciaio, si percepisce subito al polso la sensazione di leggerezza che trasmette questo orologio. Sicuramente la scelta di questo materiale rappresenta qualcosa di diverso e innovativo rispetto al solito e che ho apprezzato molto. La cassa ha un diametro di 40 mm, adatto quindi sia per polsi piccoli che per polsi grandi e il segnatempo è resistente all’acqua fino a 50 m. Stiamo comunque parlando di un cronografo e quindi l’acqua non è assolutamente il suo ambiente.

Il quadrante, l’ora del batarang

Il quadrante colpisce subito con la lancetta dei microsecondi a sinistra rappresentata dal famoso Batarang, mentre nella parte alta troviamo a scritta “Guardian of Gotham City since 1939”. L’intero quadrante è invece scandito dal disegno che ricorda il radar della batmobile. Il quadrante è caratterizzato da una particolare luminescenza che mette in risalto il gadget più utilizzato dall’uomo pipistrello.

Per quanto riguarda il fondello dell’orologio si presenta aperto ed è caratterizzato dalla presenza del logo per l’80esimo anniversario, Il meccanismo invece è un Seiko ibrido meccanico/quarzo (prima volta in cui mi imbatto in questo movimento, vi farò sapere cosa ne penso).

Per quanto riguarda il cinturino è caratterizzato dai tasti che permettono una rimozione facile e veloce nel caso volessimo sostituirlo.

Devo comprarlo?

Il Batman Undone è disponibile a una cifra attorno i 348€ e penso sia un prezzo assolutamente abbordabile per tutte le tasche. Ovviamente lo consiglio vivamente a tutti gli appassionati di Batman che non possono lasciarselo scappare. Ricordiamoci sempre che stiamo parlando di un orologio per appassionati e che è stato ideato per essere apprezzato soprattutto come oggetto da collezione. Quindi se vuoi orologio unico e sei un appassionato dell’uomo pipistrello te lo consiglio vivamente! Nel caso volessi acquistarlo clicca qui!

Batman Undone Review

Here we are with a new review dedicated to the Batman Undone, a very special chronograph inspired by the famous Batman on the occasion of his 80th anniversary.

There are several characteristics that make this timepiece truly unique. Dial, case back, strap and packaging, all reminiscent of Batman, making the watch a great collector’s item especially for DC Comics enthusiasts.

The packaging looks like a box, obviously in black and with the Batman logo on the outside. Inside the box we find the watch, together with a card that certifies its authenticity.

Titanium, an innovative choice

The first thing I noticed about this timepiece was the choice of titanium as the case material (which is very reminiscent of the Tag Heuer Camaro). Of course, since titanium is 40% lighter than steel, you can immediately feel the feeling of lightness on your wrist. Surely the choice of this material represents something different and innovative than usual and I really appreciated it. The case has a diameter of 40 mm, so it is suitable for both small and large wrists and the timepiece is water-resistant to 50 m. However, we are talking about a chronograph and therefore water is by no means its environment.

The dial, the time of the batarang

The dial immediately strikes with the microsecond hand on the left represented by the famous Batarang, while in the upper part we find “Guardian of Gotham City since 1939”. The entire dial is marked by a design reminiscent of the batmobile’s radar. The dial is characterized by a particular luminescence that highlights the most used gadget from the Dc Comics’s hero.

The back of the watch is open and features the 80th anniversary logo. The mechanism is a mechanical/quartz hybrid Seiko.

Should I buy it?

The Batman Undone is available for around €348 and I think it is an absolutely affordable price for all budgets. Obviously I highly recommend it to all Batman fans who can’t miss it. Let’s always remember that we are talking about a watch for enthusiasts and that it is designed to be appreciated especially as a collector’s item. So if you want a unique watch and you are a Batman fan I highly recommend it!
