Xetum Lays Down Some Carbon Fiber

So, remember when we brought you word of Xetum’s newest model (well, it was a teaser, to be sure).  Well, today is the big day – the newest member of the Tyndall family is now available.

When we had the teaser post back last month, the only details I had about it were the PVD case (which isn’t currently available in their production models).  Not only do you get that finish, Xetum has also put a carbon fiber dial into the mix.

Now, if you’ve read my stuff here for any amount of time, you know that I like the visual effect you get with a CF dial.  Not just the texture of the weave, but the fact that numerals and indices appear to float a bit, due to the clear coating over the CF.  It’s a neat visual effect, in a few different ways.

From what I’m told, Xetum’s last LE model (back in 2011) sold out very quickly.  And given how popular their designs are, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this one (limited to 300 pieces), move briskly, even with the $300 premium bringing the price up to $1,699.

In terms of tech specs, this model remains unchanged from their others in the lineup; you can read out take on it here.  Xetum produces some solid and cleanly styled watches, and their new Tyndall makes for some stealthy design changes – ones that keep the clean lines in place.

For more information on the watch this page; you can also get your order in right there.  Or, if you’re forutnate enough to live in San Francisco, you can head over to Watch Station and pick yours up in person.  xetum.com

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.

–The WWR Team
