Whoever stated independent brands do not have history…? You might like to re-think that certain, as more we uncover brands which were reborn after many years of deep sleep. I know full well that Arnold & Boy or Louis Moinet return to the 1800s, what you most likely wouldn’t suspect if you are unfamiliar with the company is the fact that Clerc watches is really a manufacturing house founded in 1874. Today timepieces look a lot more like they originated from the long run instead of past, using the edgy situation design, advanced documents and high-searching hands.
Before we explore the present collection a couple of words concerning the history… Clerc was noted for hands manufactured watches and particularly the piece unique commissioned by people of Royal families and celebs. Today, Gerald Clerc, doesn’t forget where his family business originated from plus they still produce one-of-a-kind pieces upon request. Obviously it wouldn’t make much sense without an accumulation of more fundamental models to showcase the DNA making timepieces less expensive with no wait. Two pieces we’ll be searching at today would be the starting time and date Hydroscaph H1, and also the more difficult Hydroscaph outfitted having a chronograph.
Each of the models seems like, and actually are, professional diver’s watches. Water-resistant to 500 meters the Hydroscaph H1 is really a COSC licensed chronometer featuring a computerized movement having a 42 hour energy reserve (which you’ll see a little of in the situation back), in addition to a date function within the window at 3 o’clock. I additionally think it is interesting the way the bezel rotates only if it’s unlocked using the spinning pusher at 1 o’clock.
The chronograph though may be the piece we love to most, the skeletonized pushers result in the look and the design of the timepiece much more advanced, as the alligator strap option balances it to something sporty but really wearable in almost any situation. I additionally can’t ignore the truth that the vulcanised rubber straps come with a very nice odour which was the very first time ever after I wished to smell the timepiece I had been putting on while test-driving it.
So you will find a variety of models with assorted materials, color versions and strap options, and that I won’t enter into detail about every single one of these, however the personal favorite in the entire collection must be the Chronograph in black with orange particulars. Hope everyone loved the small review, and when you’ve any ideas on these watches tell us within the comments or on IG! Possess a great relaxation during the day everybody!
