Italian aptitude in a Swiss Made watch
The Wyler Vetta Beaux Arts assortment’s design language is firmly rooted in its Italian origins. Adore it or hate it, one look will verify you’re within the presence of one thing decidedly completely different.
These boldly distinctive, closely lumed applique hour markers – so tough to characterize. Like the peerlessly cast, sharply angled tip of a Roman spear, or maybe the crystalized tears of an Italian maiden, flash-frozen to seize their symmetrical, diamond-like magnificence – they dominate the beautiful sunburst silver dial together with broad, dagger-like dauphine palms.
Not some passive, understated timepiece that flies demurely beneath the radar, this Italian magnificence calls for consideration – and will get it!
The sub-dials at 6, 9 & 12 o’clock provide a smorgasbord of capabilities: chronograph minutes with day & month home windows; fixed seconds inlaid with 24-hour GMT dial; moonphase with chronograph hours. A sublime pointer hand tracks the date on the marginally downward-sloped outer ring of the dial. All that is properly balanced by the printed model title and gold Wyler Vetta applique brand at 3 o’clock (a “W” & “V” cleverly organized to resemble the summit of a mountain).
The 40 mm 18 karat gold and chrome steel case seems deceptively slim at a peak of 14 mm – a portion of which could be attributed to the impressively tall field fashion sapphire crystal. The excessive polished case has barely rounded conical flanks with lengthy, broadly spaced, dramatically damaged out lugs with a pointy, nearly talon-like downward sweep.
The skinny, cambered bezel, broad, flat screw down crown and rectangular chronograph pushers are all in 18 karat gold (there was additionally a stable gold model out there as nicely). Initially issued with a real tego lizard strap and sporting a excessive polished, single-fold twin set off deployant clasp, this 2010 reference has all of the earmarks of a high-end providing from a as soon as outstanding model. One which having weathered many a storm, was as soon as once more on the rebound.
Although a very long time coming, this beautiful chronograph has discovered its mark. Higher late than by no means.
