Sargisons Chronongraphs 2010

This brand was sourced and named by a friend and colleague of mine and his efforts and advice inspired me to develop my own brand, the Bertoz watch. 

Both of these watches are modern in style, large and bulky. The stainless steel cases are very robust, 50 meter water resist, beautifully finished and on quality, heavy duty leather straps. 

The rectangular one has nice luminous hour markers. The finish on the hour and minute hands is superb and the orange colour of the other four hands contrasts well with the black dial. The movement is Miyota OS20 three register chronograph with a dedicated sub second hand and date. The dial design is complicated but interesting. 

The round one is simpler in design. The hour markers are full figure, raised and in gold. Three of the hands are also gold, the other two, black. It has a nice chapter ring. The movement is Epson, two register chronograph with date. The function here is different with the sweep hand being a dedicated second hand and the two sub dials being the stopwatch.

 These are very nice contemporary watches

About robswatches

I’m a horoligical “petrol head”! I love classical mechanical watches, not because they tell me the time, I can get the time from cheap quartz watches, my computer, phone, microwave or just about anywhere. I’m interested in the movements of watches, the aesthetics of case design and their construction, the history and the simple thrill of watching tiny, beautifully finished wheels, pinions and other parts turning and oscillating and marvelling at the craftsmanship that created it.
