Watch of the day (WOTD)

What's my wrist-wear choice for today?


My Flavor Of The Day

Zinvo, Blade Automatic

I've said before, my watch collection can best be described as a collection of contradictions, ranging from conservative dress and sport timepieces, to watches that could be considered more on the avant garde scale; my Wednesday selection, the Zinvo, Blade Automatic, is definitely on the latter part of the spectrum.


The Blade is funky cool, and the unconventional, yet functional constant, running second hand, significantly adds to the cool factor of this timepiece. The turbine look of the dial is quite busy, but the Zinvo design team at least had enough forethought, to extend the hour and minute hands past the "blade" second hand, to more easily discern the time, which is kind of important in a timepiece. The gunmetal finish, and dark tones of the dial and strap, add to the industrial look of this timepiece; and bonus, the thickly padded strap is extremely comfortable.


Further playing on the gunmetal look, albeit with slightly more shine, is the inclusion of a Hematite stone bracelet, crafted by Aurum Brothers, offering similar color schemes with a terrific contrast.
