New Viqueria Heritage Mixes Poljot Movt & Modern Styling

Not gonna lie, lately the NWC mag has become slightly obsessed with MOD – Made On Demand – watches. The idea of recycling existing, sometimes vintage movements or a handy Seiko case n bracelet, has broad appeal. It’s also kinda sustainable/green/climate agenda friendly too, as you’re basically upcycling watch parts.

Yeah so kudos with the Jeminas n Lucys who dye their hair pink and superglue themselves to controversial statues n that.

The Viqueria Heritage is ahn Italian made watch that combines the trusty Poljot 2609 movement with a new case and some beautiful leather straps.  The case size is perfect at 40mm. The watch isn’t too thick either, plus it features a real mineral crystal. All this for £180 plus import duty and VAT. Not bad.

Here’s the tech spec from Viqueria;

Few months ago we found a bunch of Poljot 2609 movements. So we started to think about a new dressy timepiece with a lot of history inside.

Thanks to our Italian watchmaker we serviced, verified and regulated the Poljot movements and thus allowed us to create a limited edition of 83 pieces that we will deliver to you in May!

We have encased the Poljot in a 40.5mm case with a bezel that’s tight to the domed crystal. Short lugs with a curve flat enough to suit larger wrists yet angled enough to hug smaller wrists as well.

The Viqueria Heritage V1 has 3 sunray dials, blue, black and white. Applied high polish indices and applied numerals.
