Tribute Fest at Advisor, As Protege Breaks Cover

Ladies would you like a Cartier Santos watch? Yes, we thought so. But that means forking out a huge amount of cash, plus the risk of being mugged in the street when daring to wear it.

The alternative could be a Protege watch, from Advisor. Here’s the word;

The full steel Protégé timepiece pays tribute to one of the greatest designer in watch history of the 70s. With the squared octagonal shape of its bezel, the angular case integrates seamlessly with the bracelet creates distinction of Protégé’s visual identity.

Its dial appearance is further enhanced with the use of modern material; forged carbon, creating a marble-like surface, making each dial unique in its own way.

This model is on pre-order right now, starting at $370. Here’s the tech specs;

Advisor Protege – New Automatic On The Blocks

Advisor watches has a new model on the way. Called the Protege, it has a 37.5mm square case, with an automatic Miyota movement inside. There are various green, blue and black dial choices.

Leather strap or steel bracelet – also a see-thru caseback.

The dial has a sort of carbon fibre finish, that’s slightly industrial and the screws on the bezel also give it that tool watch vibe. No word on prices yet, but there is an email subs waiting list if you are keen.
