While everybody knows that a great watch can make or break any outfit, it’s the lesser known brands creeping up on the big players in the horology industry and causing a splash that are the symbol of a savvy wristwatch wearer in 2017. Pyrmont-based brand Panzera is one such brand. While you may not associate high-end watches with being affordable and from Sydney, yet Panzera has made waves with their simple approach to classic design paired with modern watchmaking.
The Aquamarine is everything a good watch should be. The subtle curve of the square case and large 45mm dial are distinctly masculine and restrained and can be worn with just about any outfit. Strap options include different leathers or rubber (great if you’re taking this thing underwater) but go for one of the striped NATO bands for extra points. They’re practical, stylish and are coming back into vogue for several reasons.
The movement is automatic, so you’ll never have to replace a battery. With the case available in polished stainless, matte black and rose gold, options are varied but all sophisticated and it comes in under a grand, a massive win for an automatic divers watch of this quality.
