Redefining the tool watch

The cool concept of 3 timezones in a single watch. Reminds me of Diesel that produces various model that has 3 timezones in a single watch case. Achtung designed the watch to separate the 3 timezones by placing the 2 additional timezones (sub-dials) onto the side of the case.

Even though the watch size is larger than the norm (53mm), but because it’s made from titanium, it made the watch super light-weight on my wrist.

Case: Like how I began writing this review, this watch may not be everyone’s cup of tea. In fact, I would have to be honest that when I first had this watch on my wrist, it gave me a “wow that’s big on my wrist” feeling.

Dial: Simple 3 hand watch with combination of small and large font hour index and additional markers on most of the hour index. Center of the dial, simple sunburst silver with multiple circles around it. I like the font used on the small hour index at the angled inner bezel where it showcases futuristic numerals (1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 9, 11, 12). I would have removed the date feature on this watch to keep the dial well balanced and create an add-on calendar sub-dial onto the side case.

Sub-Dial: This is where it got interesting for me, as I see there’s more potential on this watch than as is today. Not saying that as is isn’t good enough, but it has the full potential to become a multi-featured watch with through its’ existing design. Imagine making a normal analogue watch smart ? Imagine travelling to a jungle and you got compass, GPS, LED light, toolkit (eg. swiss army feature) and many others on your wrist besides just telling time ? There’s so many possibilities I can think off that would make this watch ideal for many scenarios.

Overall

 I would definitely give my salute to Achtung for being brave and bold in creating a different watch concept in today’s microbrand industry. The watch itself calls for those who dares to be different, who dares to seek attention, who dares to defy and rebel against the norm. If you think you are up for it, look no further as this watch maybe the one for you to consider and even if this watch does not mesmerize, captivate, dazzel or entice you, I do feel that this brand has much more to offer including future models where you should be following them closely.
