Armiton Atlantis Wrist Watch: As we mentioned in our last review from this collection (seen here), we were spending time with a few different watches from the Armitron Loves Johnny collection. Today, we’re going to go through the other one we were sent, the Armiton Atlantis Wrist Watch.
Now, it’s no secret what the inspiration for the Armitron Atlantis is. That would, of course, be the venerable Datejust. You’ve got the fluted bezel that catches the light, cyclops over the date window, and a very comfortable jubilee-style bracelet. The dial is clean, with stick indices that echo the handset, with a mix into Roman numerals for the 12 o’clock position.
That, really, is the story here. If you’re looking for a Datejust homage that is fairly inexpensive in color tones that you’re not expecting (or seeing elsewhere), the Armitron Atlantis is where you’ll find that. As I wore it, I did enjoy the watch. I’ve always been drawn to watches with fluted bezels, as there’s something quite special about how they catch the light.
Armiton Atlantis Wrist Watch: Ordering
With the rich brown of the case and bracelet, along with a champagne-hued dial, it’s an earthy combo that you just don’t expect from this design.
Aside from the uniqueness, this is another signal that while this watch may not be the original, it’s also setting itself apart from it a bit. In other words, signaling that it’s an homage and not trying to be a clone (as does the louder ticking of the quartz movement). Want to pick one up? They’re available for $125 in either the chocolate brown that we reviewed here, or a green/gold color combo. armitron.com
