Yesterday, we started to take a closer look at an impressive dress watch, the Limes Chyros. Today, we’ll wrap up our review and give you a final verdict.
One surprise with this watch was the fact that it actually has lume in place. Both the hands and the dial feature a black lume. On the dial the lume is found in the black squares on the internal bezel. Now, with it being a dark lume, this means it’s not the brightest in the world. That said, it’s rare to have on a dress piece, and a nice little bonus here.
Another really nice feature that they included is on the strap. Flip it over, and they’ve got a small loop sewn in. This helps the loose keeper stay nicely in place. I don’t know about you, but I’ve had plenty of those slide up the strap over a day – this should prevent that from occurring.
Suffice to say, I really liked the watch when all I saw was a spec sheet and some pictures, and the hands-on time with the piece only served to reinforce those impressions. It is a really nice piece for daily wear at the office, or in a more formal setting. All of the design elements are well executed, and nothing extraneous is on the watch – but what else would you expect from a German design?
Oh, and one last surprise – exchange rates have moved in the favor of us in the U.S.; at today’s rates, the Chyros will set you back about $1600. A little steep for my own personal collection, but it is (and please, do pardon the unintended pun) a sublime watch.

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.
