Triwa Adds Some Chevrons

If you recall, when I last reviewed a Triwa piece (read about that here), I really liked what I saw.  Just recently, they’ve added a new model to the lineup – the Chevron Lomin.

First off – what’s a chevron?  Simply put, it’s a v-shaped pattern.  You can see it pretty clearly in the dial of the Lomin in this post; you can also read some more about the pattern here.  Here, they feel it evokes the pattern your likely to see in a wooden floor in Sweden, and I think they’ve hit the mark in that regard.

Aside from the rather intriguing pattern on the dial, you’ve got a fairly simple three-hander here, with a quartz Miyota 2115 tucked away in the acetate case.  Rounding things out, you’ve got a braided leather strap that somewhat follows the pattern established in the the dial.

Now, at an asking price (product page here for blue or yellow) of $190 (plus $25 for shipping), this is definitely on the higher end for a quartz piece – likely a victim of current currency conversions from the Swedish Krona.  I really like the acetate case (very light weight on the wrist), as well as the intriguing pattern on the dial; I just wouldn’t call this an impulse buy.  If you are a fan of Swedish design and/or intricate wood flooring patterns, this could very well be the watch for 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.
