Sometimes, it can be hard to tell (at a glance) what differentiates many watches from each other.  Sure, us watch geeks can dive into the nitty gritty and split hairs on the movements, brand heritage, etc.  But for the rest of the populace, it’s not quite so easy.  Now, the English brand Fitzroy is doing what they can to set themselves apart by putting bold splashes of color in play.

The first of their models that caught my eye was the F-S-S2S2.  For starters, you’ve got those lime green hands that are just about glowing.  That same green tint carries over onto the anodized aluminum segments set in the steel bracelet.  I’m used to seeing perhaps polished links, or gold tone – this is the first time a bold color has shown up in what I’ve looked at, and I have to say, I like it.

Of course, us watch geeks can’t just go on good looks, can we?  Not at all.  So, let’s run down the specs:

  • 43mm stainless steel case
  • Swiss automatic movement
  • Sapphire crystal with AR coating
  • WR to 50 meters
  • Hours / minutes / date / sub-seconds

I really wish I could tell you the exact movement in the watch, but my Google-fu wasn’t able to dig that bit of info up.  Nor much in terms of the history of the brand (ie, when they came into being).  So, it is a bit of an unknown quantity for several reasons.  However, for throwing an uncommon splash of color on your wrist, Fitzroy seems to be your maker.
