The American watchmaker Xetum was founded by Jeff Kuo, a longtime wristwatch and design aficionado. The company relies on minimalistic, yet modern approach to timepiece design. While the watch design is developed in San-Francisco, the timekeepers are expertly crafted in Switzerland. Similar to other small watch brands, Xetum finds its potential customers via the web.
The timepieces from this young, yet fast growing watch company, are eco-friendly. They utilize renewable cork on naturally tanned straps. The brand’s watch boxes are manufactured from rubberwood, saved from being burned.
Now, Xetum is pleased to unveil its new Tyndall watch. It accommodates an ETA 2895 movement, which proudly reveals 27 jewels and blued screws. The mechanism operates at a frequency of 28,800 vibrations per hour and boasts a 42-hour power reserve. The enchanting details of this mechanism can be admired through the transparent case-back.
The heart of the watch is beating inside a stainless steel case, featuring the dimensions of 40 mm x 11 mm. On its front side the case is armed with a flat sapphire crystal with internal anti-glare coating, whereas its back is produced from hardened K1 mineral crystal. The timepiece is submersible to 100 meters.
The Tyndall watch is offered with a black or off-white dial. The dial is distinguished by 24-hour markers on the inner chapter ring. The inner scale is lined up with the outer ring, equipped with the conventional scale.
This dial structure enables the watch wearer to read 12 or 24 hours simultaneously. The outer ring exposes numbers 12, 3, 6 and 9 treated with Superluminova compound. The hour and minutes hands are also luminescent. The small seconds counter is found at 6 o’clock. The date is indicated in the aperture, located at 3 o'clock.
The Xetum Tyndall watch is affixed to a strap produced from naturally tanned leather. The men's watch is equipped with a push-button release butterfly clasp, featuring the engraved Xetum logo.
