The always-busy world we are living in today has made the necessity for a wristwatch almost obsolete. Cell phones have taken its place instead, transforming wristwatches into something completely different. Today they are seen more as a fashion statement, and in the case of vintage timepieces, more as family inheritances to be passed down from one generation to the next as a symbol of a shared history and family pride. Over the past few years modern watches have become supersized, exaggerated accessories, that in some cases make the simply task of reading the time almost impossible.
In reaction to this phenomenon many people have turned to vintage watches for their refined, feminine-chic look or at least to get that retro look that never goes out of style. My pick of the day is naturally a beautiful example of the basic vintage wristwatch every woman should own.
Zeno - watch Basel Basic Retro
The dainty Zeno watch Basel Basic Retro Day Date has a vintage look and feel, obvious at first sight from its chocolate and cream color palette. Zeno Watch Basel has been manufacturing Swiss watches independently since 1922. They are specialists in mechanical pilot watches and oversized watches, for what the Basic Retro watch belongs in the “small” category with a modest case of 37mm. it is officially a unisex watch, but personally, I feel it would suit better on a woman’s wrist. Comfortable leather strap, cream colored dial with numbers and markers in a shiny bronze shade, and a stainless steel case. This timepiece is stunning to look at from every angle, specially the back part. There you can clearly appreciate the movement, the mechanical parts and the twenty-five jewels altogether working in perfect synergy. This is 100% haute horlogerie at a very affordable price.
