We have written about quite a few different Rossling & Co watches, and based on their successes, it seems the general public is on-board with what they’re making available via Kickstarter, as projects have far exceeded initial funding goals. This means that our July 2015 Giveaway, for the Rossling & Co. Quartz Watch, should prove to be a popular one.
Now, if for some reason you missed Matt’s original writeup on the watch back in December, head on over here and take a look. For those in a hurry, or if you just want a quick review, it’s a watch that Matt rather liked. When it comes to quartz watches, sometimes us watch reviewers can be a bit tough. That all said, there is a lot that was done right here. For starters, they played off one of the big benefits of a quartz movement (it’s smallness), and the Rossling & Co. Quartz Watch is very, very thin (only 7mm, which is 2mm thinner than the automatic version).
The Ronda 1069 movement also informs the layout that we have on the dial, with the sub-seconds mimicking the indices that we see on the main dial. As Matt pointed out in his review this helps to fill what would otherwise be a wide expanse of white space on the dial. Yes, even though the movement itself is small, the watch case measures in at a healthy 40mm. Combined with the thin profile, though, this should make for a rather wearable watch.
It also comes on the tweed strap the brand is known for. I took a look at one of these here and think, as Matt does, that it provides a nice alternative to the ever-present leather strap. I’m not as sold on it for warm-weather wear, but Matt thought it would work well for the summer – and I guess that is something that our winner will be able to decide for themselves. For your opportunity to win your own Rossling & Co. Quartz watch, simply head on over here and get your entries in for the July 2015 Giveaway. Good luck!
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.
