Torgoen Adds New Colours to T18 Range

We admire Torgoen because they’re creating a visual langauge in their watch designs. You see a Torgoen with its bright colours, big numbers, dials and other clues and recognise it as a Torgoen. That’s the way forward for Indie watch brands, not endless homages to Swiss prestige and luxury models in our humble view.

So say hello to a yellow strap T18 Aviation and a green model.

You get that aviation style dial, with flashes of yellow or green, plus the sub-dial hands are colour matched. The silicone straps are also in the new colours. This is a big watch case at 45mm across and the lugs are 24mm, which means you can choose from a wide range of aftermarket straps on eBay, Amazon, HS Walsh, Watch Gecko, LBS, Red Rooster, Ali Express etc.

The crystal is K1 spec mineral glass, so it should be reasonably scratch resistant. Inside the steel case there’s an ETA quartz movement, so you should expect a 20 year lifespan from that, battery every two years or so.

Price is £398 which is expensive for an independent quartz but you get that Torgoen style, which is striking and stands out in a crowd.

One thought on “Torgoen Adds New Colours to T18 Range

  1. I recently purchased the green model shown above. Although otherwise a great watch, It has one huge flaw: the hands on the subdials are a dark forest green which cannot be seen easily against the black background. The regular (not chronograph) seconds hand is even worse, and at 15 and 45 seconds it has a background of the same dark green and becomes almost invisible. I do not recommend this version of the T18.
