ToW - Time of Watches

Postby koimaster » May 17th 2018, 9:22am

The ToW Gibralfaro has a racing vintage style inspired on rallying and the iconic chronographs of the 70s/80s. Inspiration that arose in details like the power reserve indicator or the power reserve and seconds hands inspired in the classic rally cars dashboards. The mainly brushed modular case and the custom applied indices mixing brushed and polished surfaces complete our interpretation of the retro-sporty look.



Measurements:

-Case diameter: 41 mm

-Lug to lug distance: 48 mm

-Lug width: 20 mm

-Thickness: 13.2 mm

Movement:

-Brand and model: Miyota 9130

-Functions: hours, minutes, seconds, date and power reserve.

-Running time: more than 40 hours.

-Vibration frequency: 28.800 vibrations per hour.

Specifications:

-Case: stainless steel 316L made in two parts.

-Caseback: stainless steel 316L screw-down and visible caseback.

-Crown: stainless steel 316L screw-down crown.

-Front glass: double domed sapphire with inner AR layer.

-Rear glass: flat mineral glass.

-Luminiscence: super-LumiNova BGW9 in hour and minute hands.

-Water resistance: 100 m/10 ATM.

Not that bad. Only the name... Time of Watches? Not very creative. Besides, if I'd want a racing-style watch, or any car-inspired watch, I wouldn't want one with "tow" written on the dial.

Nice watch straps, not the NATO's, nice watch roll and I like that it is a modular case. That's it.

I'll pay attention to a StartKicker start-up when it announces its making its own movements.

Until then, be safe, fans, and remember: Life is best when you're refreshed, and cola refreshes you best!
