Swiss watch Continental

The content of the article:

The 1924th anniversary of the Continental watch brand, which was founded in XNUMX, is just around the corner. The initial concept of the brand immediately turned out to be successful. Outwardly, it is simple, but it requires extraordinary resources, talents and efforts to implement: far from an elementary task - to combine the original Swiss quality of watchmaking, timeless elegance and affordable prices, while creating an effective international distribution network.

The company successfully developed, went through - though not without dramatic ups and downs - through the global quartz crisis of the 1970s and the purely internal personnel crisis of the 1990s, and continues to move, remaining faithful to the chosen credo.

Continental watches are addressed to men and women who live in the rhythms of modernity and appreciate the traditional heritage of Swiss watchmaking. All models carry the Swiss Made label; all of them are equipped with high-precision Swiss movements; all are made of coated or uncoated stainless steel; all are equipped with sapphire crystals. On the dials of all Continental models, these inscriptions flaunt: Swiss Made and Sapphire.

And, of course, the very name of the brand, coupled with its logo - a stylized image of the globe: all continents are the field of activity of Continental!
Now let's show some characteristic collections of Continental watches.

For men

The Gents collection cannot but be appreciated by true gentlemen. Here are the classic "suits" and watches of a more sporty style. From the first, you need to pay attention to the group of three switches with the date art. 15203GA, offered in a discreet 41mm diameter and fitted with the proven ETA 2824-2 automatic calibers. The two-level dial is stylishly guilloched in the central part. There are several versions to choose from: certain color schemes of the case and dial, leather straps, steel bracelets.

The sporty Continental Gents are homages to diving Rolexes, at least outwardly. There is a magnifying glass above the date window, massive luminous hands and markers, and even a rotating bezel with a 60-minute scale, and in some versions this bezel is the iconic pepsi coloring.

True, we must bear in mind that this watch is not a diver's watch after all - the water resistance of the case (50 m) allows you to fearlessly swim in them, but no more. Diameter 42 mm, steel bracelets and silicone straps (different colors, like the dials), ETA F06.115 quartz movement inside.

For ladies

Women's watches Continental Ladies are distinguished primarily by the elegance of decor. Classical shapes (not just a circle!) are complemented by crystals, designers' rich imagination can be seen in a variety of dials and bracelets. Can't leave indifferent any model of the group. We singled out these particular lines due to the special elegance of their bracelets, which are a priori original accessories.

But it is also a watch: reliable and accurate! 16601-LT - 28mm two-handers with mother-of-pearl dials, powered by Ronda 762 quartz caliber; 18002-LT - three hands with floral decor on the dials, diameter 30,5 mm, based on the ETA 902.101 quartz movement.

For romantics

Let's take a look at the Continental watches from the Multifunction&Chronograph collection. The name itself speaks of the rich functionality of these models. Why are we talking about romance and romantics (of both sexes)? Because we consider the function of the phases of the moon, which is present in this watch, to be very poetic, which is also made with a delicate taste.

Here, for example, is a male three-hand watch with a date aperture, driven by the Ronda 708 quartz movement. This is also a strict classic (a round steel case with a diameter of 42 mm, a steel bracelet, a guilloche silver dial with black hands and black Arabic numerals - the utmost clarity of indication) .

Also, you can not go past the calendars, which are ideally combined with the lunar phases. The women's model features small hands for the date and day of the week, a gold-plated case (diameter 32 mm) and a silver-colored dial adorned with crystals. All this is complemented by a gray alligator leather strap and works on a quartz Ronda 706.

For couple

A very successful marketing move by Continental is an extensive collection of Pairwatches, that is, watch pairs: for Him and for Her. The watches in these pairs differ from each other in dimensions, respectively, male and female. There are many options, all of them deservedly can be considered hits.

Pure classics: perfectly round case (respectively 41 and 32 mm) with gold PVD coating, silver dial, two hands and date, ETA quartz movement (respectively F05.111 and F04.111, which are basically the same), leather strap .
