Well, then, good ol’ Roamer of Switzerland may have an option for you. Of course, now I have “Roam If You Want To” playing in my head, but that’s a separate issue. Back to the watch!
This one grabbed my attention strictly due to the family name – Slim-line. That is definitely one area where quartz movements (which this watch feature) tends to have over their mechanical brethren – they can make for an amazingly compact watch. Which isn’t to say that a mechanical movement can’t feature a thin case – they just cost a good deal more.
This particular watch comes in one of four flavors, so you should find one to fit your wardrobe-related needs. Regardless of the color scheme, they all offer the following:
- Ronda 1062 Quartz Movement
- 38mm case (stainless steel, PVD rose gold, or PVD yellow gold)
- Sapphire crystal
- 30 meter water resistance
No date display or seconds hand – just a simple hours and minutes with a single crown to set things. In a dress watch, I think this is entirely appropriate, as you’re not really fiddling around with a lot of other functions on your watch (or, at least, you shouldn’t be).
Surprisingly, for a line labelled Slim-Line, I had a hard time finding any concrete specs on how thin the case actually is. Fortunately, I found the relevant info over at Amazon – and they’ve labelled it as 6mm(!) which means this will just disappear on your wrist. And, depending on which variant you select, it’ll disappear at least $425 from your wallet.
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.
