Review: Techné GosHawk (Ref. 411)

Dial

The dial plan of the GosHawk is unadulterated pilot, with its larger than average 12, 3, 6 and 9 and generally clean aesthetic.  The most characterizing normal for the GosHawk dial for me anyway is its compact design.  Minute/second pointers at regular intervals line the external edge of the dial with hash denotes each moment/second seeming one layer nearer to the focal point of the dial.  Further in we see the enormous mathematical hour indices.  With this more compact plan, the blade style hands of the GosHawk are additionally fairly squat, similar to the straight second hand.

At the 9 o’clock position you’ll likewise locate a 24-hour sub-dial with day-gleam orange our hand and hour markers at 24, 6 and 12.  Again, with the dial configuration being so compact, the 24-hour sub-dial really supports the focal point of the watch.  Between the 4 and 4 o’clock positions you’ll likewise discover a date window with dark content on white background.  Yet in spite of its compact dial plan and various features, the GosHawk stays entirely clear and keeps a straightforward appearance.

Lume on the GosHawk dial is found on every one of the mathematical and hash hour markers, just as the entirety of the hands of the watch.  All shine a brilliant green except for the 24-hour hand, which sparkles splendid orange.  This is a lovely detail which makes translating the dial in obscurity a piece easier.

Straps + Wearability

The Techné GosHawk is accessible in various arrangements with your decision of hardened steel or PVD finish, and NATO or oiled cowhide lash, all going from $315 to $338.  The oiled calfskin tie gave our audit unit was the seat earthy colored and features contrast white sewing (kindly note that I mistakenly allude to the cowhide as the shading nectar in the video review).  Measuring 20 mm at the carry and 18 mm at the clasp, the tie is somewhat comfortable.  The cowhide is delicate and flexible yet not all that much along these lines, and features a pleasant round pad shape.  It likewise features a globule impacted sending fasten with etched Techné insignia.  The GosHawk is likewise accessible in your picked of dark, orange or green NATO tie, all of which give the watch a more energetic military look.

Measuring 41.4 mm in measurement, 12.5 mm tall and 48.7 mm drag to-haul the GosHawk is humbly estimated by today’s principles and wears somewhat little on the wrist.  This is helped by the plan of the dial, which zeros in more on compact accuracy instead of huge, intense design.  As somebody with bigger wrists, the GosHawk was a more subtle decision for myself, however for by far most of you the more reasonable profile will be a welcome takeoff from the pattern of huge watches that we see today.

Conclusion

So there you have the GosHawk, an all around styled, delightfully executed pilot with a value that can’t be beat.  For anybody on the lookout for a watch with lively allure yet less forceful stylish, the GosHawk might be the watch for you.  At somewhere in the range of $315 to $338, it surely must be under consideration.
