ToW's Gibralfaro

Post by AtomicTom » Wed May 16, 2018 9:29 am

Has everyone had time to see ToW's (Time of Watches) Gibralfaro yet?

The Spanish brands new model was created by watch enthusiasts for
watch enthsiasts, and has a vintage racing style. With just a few of the
many details including a 41mm brushed, and polished stainless steel case,
AR coated double domed sapphire crystal, 100M WR, black, or white dials
with checkered outer ring, and BGW9 Super-Luminova coated hands, and
markers, neat racing style leather straps, and Miyota 9130 movement.

Some pictures for you...

I like the hands and dial, but the case is just way too slab like.

Aside from the strap, I honestly don't see much "vintage racing" in the design. The model name (a mountain in Spain) doesn't really help with the racing connection either.

It's a unique looking watch right everyone?!! Kind of takes elements from
different watches, but doesn't remind you of any one watch which is pretty
neat. :thumbsup:

Oh, and Andrew, was kind of thinking the same thing with the watch. The strap
definitely brings the race vibe. Guess maybe the outer checkered ring, and also
power reserve adds a sporty feel. But it's more modern. ..Guess it pays tribute
to the past, but without being 100% like past watches. :)
