Anders Tan at Gnomon Watches rolled out a new model that has it going on.
Start with a first rate movement, like the ETA 2452 automatic, put it in a watch styled after World War II German pilots’ watches, and jazz it up with some color. This is a complete winner. Big, but not too big at 42.5mm, with a simple, classic dial, this could have been a ‘so what’ watch, but Anders added red hands and blue lumincent markings that add just enough, but not too much flash.
Watching Ander’s line grow and mature has been a real pleasure. This one shows a great balance of class, taste, and style, and an interesting direction for his line. I am itching to see the next one.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
