Haute horology is synonymous with timeless design and a watch-making legacy that is at least half a century old. Which is why when new watchmakers step into the arena, finding firm grounds is sometimes a challenge. For sure, I’m glad that Waves Design Studio has risen up to this and designed the perfect tribute with the TESORO Automatic Mechanical Watch.
We asked the team at Wave Design Studio to give us some insights as to what got them to design such a masterpiece, and this is what they had to say….
“We are a young company founded on principles of providing exceptional value to our customers and we don’t have a lot of overhead as most of the big companies do. Similar quality watches are being sold over $1000 a piece whereas we were looking to bring the retail price to almost half of that. We have a lot of experience with watches that helped us design a piece that looks as amazing today as it will in a hundred years. We believe uniqueness and exclusivity does not have to come at a price that’s not affordable by most.”
So, what is The TESORO all about?
Here is an ultra modern, cool looking & affordable mechanical watch and it is a part of the first collection of automatic timepieces. To keep it as detailed and conventional as possible, the team has used a 3D multi layered, multi-textured dial with and an open heart. Through the sapphire crystal case back we get a glorious glimpse of the movement, while on the dial is a star shaped rotating seconds hand. Both sides are well designed and crafted.
As this is an automatic watch, it requires no charging – ever. You wearing it on a daily basis is more than enough for it. The case measures a good 44 mm and houses an Automatic Miyota 82S7 movement with a 40+ hours of power reserve. Pour over the details below and you’ll understand why this is a unique watch and at the pricing that it comes at – a fantastic deal!
