If you recall, I first brought the Limes Chyros to your attention a few months back. Today, we’re bringing some attention back to the watch, as we were loaned a sample to do a review.
Now, if you didn’t read the earlier post (or didn’t want to click the link above), here’s a quick rundown on the piece:
- Movement: SW200 Top grade decorated Swiss automatic movement
- Case: 43mm stainless steel Ickler, 10.3mm thick
- Crystal: Curved sapphire with AR coating on both sides in front; flat sapphire in the case back
- Signed crown, 50m water resistance
- Dial: silvered or black with lumed indices
- Hand: silvered and lumed
- Strap: leather
As with the Archimede I reviewed for you last week, this firmly in the dress-watch category, though I feel the Chyros carries a nicer style to it. Also like the Archimede, this watch is very pleasingly thin, at only 10.3mm. And even with that minimal height, there’s a nice bit of detailing on the side of the case.
Also, quite thankfully, the crown is a reasonable size, and rather easy to use for setting or winding the watch. Once on the wrist, the leather strap comfortably holds the watch in place; with the clean (yet textured) dial, you can easily read the time at a glance. In other words, Limes has done a good job of making this a very functional watch.
And that’s where we’ll leave things for today. Tomorrow, we’ll cover a few more nice surprises I came across, and give you our final impressions.
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.
