Formex A780 Watches - Reliability and Distinguished Design

Nov 18, 2010
The horological company Formex has pleasantly surprised the public with the presentation of its new A780 watch. The remarkable timepiece has been released in two versions: a three-hand automatic version as well as a quartz chronograph model.

With these novelties, the company meets the challenge of creating interesting cases and charismatic dial designs. Inspired by the sport of racing, the new Formex watches are set in steel cases, which boasts a black PVD-treated or polished surface.

Each case is 13mm thick and measures 45 mm in diameter. The case strikes the eye with its unusual shape, which represents a successful union of round and square elements. The screws, revealed on its surface, can be performed in black or polished steel.

The case of each model is equipped with an appealing winding crown, located at 3 oclock. The chronograph model is also fitted with charismatic pushers, designed to resemble brake pedals.

The chief attribute of every A780 watch is an integrated shock absorbing system, which places the case on springs. It serves to protect the movement from external shocks and environmental disturbances, which can occur in the course of a track race.

Housed in an imposing case is a dial, dressed in yellow or black. It catches and holds the gaze with its grated structure. The inner section of the dial is completed with light-toned minute markings, while its outer part boasts large Arabic numerals.

The display whispers the time through hours, minutes and seconds. Pointing to the hours and minutes are centralized, partially transparent hands, dressed in black and white or grey and white color combinations. Taking care of seconds is a thin long hand, performed in yellow or white.

The dial also offers a date indication, which appears in a square exhibition window at 4 oclock.

The display of the chronograph version also features chronograph counters, located at 10, 2 and 6 oclock as well as the additional centralized black and white hand. Framing the dial is an impressive bezel, marked with Arabic numerals.

The functions, provided by a three-hand interpretation, are animated by a Swiss-made ETA 2824-2 automatic movement. Ticking inside a chronograph version is a Swiss-made ETA 215.211 quartz chronograph movement.

The models are teamed with port-holed leather straps. Alternatively, they can be mounted on rubber straps.

The new Formex watches target the individuals with a preference for reliable timekeeping instruments, which at the same time portray a distinguished design.
