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.
