You guys ready to look at some massive watches? Tsovet’s Ronda Quartz-powered CS79 is quite intriguing even if the 10 – actually a 0? – is a bit off-putting. This monster watch costs $425 and is cased in PVD-coated steel on a leather band.

They have a few other interesting models – most are, sadly, quartz – and this is the first I’ve seen of them. They all cost under $500, which is great for a fashion watch.

  1. I’ve been wearing this watch for about 2 weeks. It’s gorgeous but some days, it just feels too damn big.

    Here’s a tip: it’s $299 at Sundance Catalog.

  2. Unfortunately, Tsovet has chosen to build their brand by blatantly copying brands such as Bell and Ross, U-Boat and Panerai. Every model that they offer is a cheap doppelganger to it’s high-end counterpart. They present the specs of these watches as if they are impressive – but they are cheap chinese crap that cost well under $100 to manufacture.There $50 straps are off the shelf Bonetto Cinturini models that cost $8 apiece. They don’t get their inspiration from old Russian watches – they copy current models.
