We are definitely into the thick of summer now (at least in the northern hemisphere). This generally means summertime travel, which can enlist a variety of modes of transport. Well, if you plan on riding the rails, then this month’s giveaway watch – the G. Gerlach PM36 – will be a perfect riding companion.
In our review, we gave you the full rundown on this watch. It has a a great vintage style that is kicked off (or capped off?) by the enameled dial, lumed numerals (with a great font), and the cathedral-style handset. Sure, that Seagull movement inside may not be “period correct” for a vintage-looking watch, but I’m happy to take modern manufacturing tolerances and reliability. And hey, it does bring hand-winding-only to the party, which is a right feel for the period.
For being a 43mm watch, it does not wear overly large, due to the thin coin-edge bezel that surrounds the dial. It also gives a rather great view of that lovely dial at just about any angle. Paired onto the steel mesh strap, the fully-polished G. Gerlach PM36 definitely can carry on with some dressier occasions. And, should you need to jump in the pool, the 100m WR rating and sapphire crystal will be right there along with you.

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.
