None Of the Above watches are the creation of a young member of an old watch making family. Nicola Andreatta has been designing watches for his family’s business for a while, but wanted to move off in his own direction. Of course, being connected to the industry his whole life, he was in a good position to start up a new brand.
And the NOA Watches stand out. In three sizes, 44mm, 40mm, and 36mm (this last for the ladies), your choices have only begun. The contours under the crystal create a powerful appearance of depth, and this is enhanced with well raised marking on the face. NOA watches use proven ETA and Valjoux movements, combine forward design with solidly engineered movements. The line includes a handsome rose gold and black piece, an eye-catching, bold dive watch and several others and a broad range of limited production pieces.
The dive watch is the one that really caught my eye. The rotating bezel is under the crystal with a seperate crown to adjust it. The black and yellow color scheme is stunning. This makes for a really engaging appearence with a lot of presence.
With less than 50 retailers globally, seeing these in person can be a trick. As fortune would have it, I found myself in Washington D.C. with time to indulge my hobbies. Tiny Jewel Box on 1147 Conn. Ave is among this small group of dealers (www.tinyjewelbox.com). Special thanks to Jorge, their watch specialist for his patience with my questions, and his passion for NOA watches.
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.
