FORMEX ESSENCE AUTOMATIC CHRONOMETER

The blue dial is reminiscent of some of Omega’s Aqua Terra models, with deeply machined horizontal stripes countered with vertical brushing. As the light changes angle, this dial turns from light blue with dark markers to a dark blue with light markers (this morphing appearance can make some photos misleading). The mirror polish of the applied markers is picked up by the faceted hour and minute hands, all of which are filled with Super-LumiNova BGW9. Under a loupe, the way the hour hand hovers just above the dial and just inside the indices is impressive. The color-matched chamfered rehaut holds a white minute track and is attractive and legible… More at Worn & Wound.

I kind of like this even if it looks a little ‘homage’. CSOC for $685 is impressive as well, but we are talking about a Kickstarter project…
