Advisor AstroHelm V1 (Limited Edition)

Why We Love This Watch
If you're looking for a large vintage-style dress watch then there is a lot to love here, from the large Panerai-style cushion case with wide 24mm straps, (and screwed spring bars, which is a nice touch,) to the popular 1930s California dial with it's mix of Arabic and Roman numerals, set with Swiss Super-Luminova Old Radium lume to add to the vintage effect. Rose gold plating aside, the two most outstanding features of this watch are the brushed antique plated dial, which gives off a warm metallic wood grain effect, and the super high double domed sapphire crystal. Overall the specs on this watch are very robust too, with the ultra-reliable NH35A automatic movement, scratch resistant sapphire glass, and a 100 meter water rating.
