The Brew watches Retromatic is back and why not? This 70s style, TV dial inspired watch combines Seiko automatic engine power with a modern US led design theme. Featuring a 36mm case diameter it also has a more modest 70s era width too.
Brew say the dial’s many perforations are inspired by espresso machines, although it is channeling Tetley tea bags for us Brits. Maybe even a hint of industrial soundproofing too? Very different and it has that tiny window showing the balance assembly, which is another industrial `inspection hatch’ feature we love.
It retails at $425, but you have to add on import duty and VAT of course.
