Watch of the day

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Spinnaker, Tesei - Titanium

For Saturday, my choice of wrist-wear is my newest arrival to the collection, the Spinnaker, Tesei, in Titanium. This is one of the "must haves" on my short list for 2019, and it did not disappoint. The Tesei also has an alternate version offered in Bronze, with a Swiss automatic movement. While the Swiss automatic option is a nice upgrade, and Bronze is definitely the current darling finish of the watch industry, I felt the Titanium version offered a much cleaner looking presentation.


First impressions, the obvious, is the lightweight feel due to the Titanium alloy. The strap is a bit rigid to start, but the combination of nylon and leather provides a nice "sailcloth" look for this diver, and seems very durable, with a finish that is very similar to Kevlar.


For me, a blue-faced dive watch pretty much has me at hello. And this Spinnaker, Tesei - Titanium has the visual dial aesthetics, and overall good looks, to keep me gazing at my wrist on an almost regular basis.


Pairing the Tesei today, with a minimalist, Sodalite stone beaded bracelet, designed by Aurum Brothers, which provides a near perfect color match.
