Vintage look, modern design …
This Nautica watch is a model only time setting very classic, vintage, considering that it was not even with the date, their choice to call the military setting patterns of the past. The only signs of modernity are:
- The case is matte black PVD treated
- The size of the same are quite generous, diameter 44mm (unthinkable a few years ago).
And ‘possible to buy the BFD-102 TIME ONLY in two variants : black case, black with white indices and black leather strap, or black box, black with brown indexes and brown leather strap.
Personally I think this version special and worthy of note.
Setting deliberately retro suggests that the dial, not crowded is always easy to read in all conditions. Hour markers and hands are treated with luminescent material and allow good reading in the dark.
The stainless steel case is equipped with setting crown (at 3) and screw cap tight, which together with the convex mineral crystal ensure water resistance to 10 ATM.
Very particular combination of matt black of the case and the strap, the watch that looks classic and sporty at the same time. Remember this particular color (only and exclusively with regard to the color combination) some particular models of the Officine Panerai.
