LIKE IN GOOD OLD TIMES
The new model “Retro Classic” from Poljot-International
When you talk about retro, you think of the “good old days”, in contrast to today’s time, which is passing us by faster and faster.
Poljot-International’s new “Retro Classic” model stops time short and revives the feeling of the bygone era by referencing the past with various design elements.
The main feature of the watch are the numbers. They are authentically designed in the old retro style, while the shadow in the background in nostalgic style, clearly emphasizes the numbers. In addition, the numbers glow in the dark to be easily visible. The red number 12 sets with its color a characteristic feature of the 20s/30s and underlines the affiliation to the “good old” time.
The colors of the dials are in classic finish – champagne, green and silver. The sunburst finish is a common production method of the time and was also used on these dials. The hour and minute hands are made in the onion shape with luminous material. This shape was also popular in the days of “swing and jazz”. In any case, they make reading the watch very easy and convenient.
The case is made of stainless steel, the size – 38.5 mm in diameter – corresponds to the revolutionary times. Without the front glass, the case measures only 9.15 mm and houses a hand-wound mechanical movement by Vostok, caliber 2409, which also has its beginnings in the last century. The movement is visible through the glass back of the case. It was left completely unfinished to preserve its nostalgic character and not be affected by additional finishing.
The model is worn on the wrist with a calfskin strap. It is very soft and supple. As an eye-catcher, it has contrasting stitching on the side.
All in all, the new “Retro Classic” is an expressive, classic retro watch with charisma that will make any enthusiast’s heart beat faster.
