It’s not an IWC, but it’s close enough. The Vendoux is an inexpensive automatic aviator with a certain flair all it’s own. No real pedigree – the folks at Vendoux.nl sell this thing for $200 – but it’s sufficiently big and attractive so more power too ’em.
Yes, the watch is big! It’s funny, you see a watch pictured on the internet and its stated dimensions are 46mm (for example), yet you cannot picture the watch being that big in person. This watch was like this for me. The info said it was 46mm, but it just did not look that big. But, it is! When I first took it out of the box I had expected the watch to weigh more than it does, it’s actually quite light for its size (approx. 90 grams). But. I liked it right away, especially after it was on my wrist! It had the look (and size) I wanted without being an outright knock-off.
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.
