Bomberg Watches is another Swiss watch company gloating “cast-iron tradition” for clients “who wear their lion hearts on their sleeves.” Bravado aside, I need to say that the company’s dispatch setup of 52 watches from 3 lines–the 1968, Maven, and Semper collections–are intended to intrigue with quality form materials, a combination of shading ways, and all estimated under $700.
The Maven assortment comprises of 16 watches in either 44mm or 39mm tempered steel or PVD covered cases, an assortment of dial and band shading choices, and either Miyota OS25 Chronographs with retrograde 1/20 sec or Miyota 8215 Automatic developments. All models have screwed down case backs, mineral gems with hostile to intelligent sapphire covering, luminova, and 100m water obstruction. Costs range from $625 to $695.
In the Semper assortment you’ll discover 14 watches–with 42mm or 39mm hardened steel, brushed Rose Gold, or PVD covered cases and Miyota OS21 Chronograph developments no matter how you look at it. A fascinating component of the Semper models is the expansion of a telemeter scale, an element that can be utilized to time the distance of lightning. This scale is additionally joined by a tachymeter and keeps up the lively tasteful imparted to the next Bomberg lines, anyway its more conventional styled cases make it the most adaptable on the off chance that you needed to dress it up or down. An entire gathering of shading alternatives doesn’t hurt by the same token. Costs range from $495 to $580.
Perhaps the best display of Bomberg’s numerous “man-isms” slathered across their site is the 1968 assortment . To lay it out plainly, these watches are boss (simply investigate the 44mm Chrono model on the whole black). The intriguing thing about the 1968 Chronograph models is the area of the crown and pushers–they’re on the top. This plan has been known as the “Bullhead” and was mainstream in sportier watches of the last part of the 60s and mid 70s. It’s unquestionably a special way to deal with case plan and one that is somewhat unsafe for the non-chrono models where the crown (sans pushers) is on top. That being said, it might simply be what recognizes these watches from the herd.
The development in the 1968 Chronographs is a Miyota OS11, it likewise has a tachymeter, nickel hands with luminova, and 100m water resistance. The 1968 Automatic watches are fueled by Miyota 8215 developments, these models lose the chrono pushers at the highest point of the case, yet hold the crown in a similar area. The dial varies too, with the two-eye chrono/tachymeter configuration being traded out for a date window and focal hour circle. The 1968 assortment comes in both 44mm and 39mm tempered steel or PVD covered case sizes. Mineral precious stone with hostile to intelligent sapphire covering is standard altogether models and there is no deficiency of shading combos to browse. Costs range from $595 to $675.
So there you have it–all 52 watches and the flavors they come in. With all the varieties on the off chance that sizes, shading ways, and plans, I’d say there’s something here for everybody. What’s better is that these watches are coming in at a competitive cost thinking about their specs. All things considered, I might want to see sapphire gems and even Swiss developments discover their way into the following deliveries from the Swiss based beginning up. While a worldwide dispatch is scheduled for 2013, explicit delivery dates for the U.S. are as yet not declared. Notwithstanding, the brand will show at this year’s Basel World display and more subtleties ought to be delivered then.
