Back in February (see here), we brought you word of Xetum’s impending new model lineup. Well, today, that line has been released.At this time, we don’t have much more information than what is in the press releases, but we should have a sample on-hand soon for a true hands on-review. Coming it at just under $1000, the lineup offers the following:
- 40mm stainless steel case (only 11mm thick)
- ETA 2824-2 automatic movement (38 hour power reserve)
- AR-coated sapphire crystal up front, mineral crystal display back
- Rubber or nylon strap options (20mm)
You can definitely see the brand “DNA” in the case design and crown, as well as in the fonts and numerals in use on the dial, while allowing this new line to hearken to an automotive-inspired theme.
As I mentioned, we should have our own review forthcoming. In the meantime, you see what Ariel thought of the watches right here.
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.
