How much do we know about Australia? Kangaroo is the first thing that comes to mind. Next, probably, the natives, the Great Barrier Reef, rabbits and sheep ... tennis ... well, maybe also wine - they do it well there. What about the clock? How about Made in Australia wristwatches?
Meanwhile, there are such watches, and they are worthy of attention. Let's go through the selected places of our catalog: today our shopping is dedicated to the young Australian watch brand Panzera.
The company is really young - it was founded in Sydney in 2009. She herself defines her credo with the words “modern vintage” or “neoclassic”. Stylish design that combines traditional values with a touch of futurism; impeccable quality of components and assembly, carried out at two sites - in Sydney and Lugano, Switzerland; attention to all the "little things" - the same high level of packaging and service, plus a mandatory international guarantee; Finally, affordable prices. Sounds very attractive, doesn't it?
Let's look at the main collections of Panzera watches. There are three of them, they are dedicated to the three elements - the sea, the earth and the air.
Collection Panzera Land
This collection includes models of the TM42 series, where TM stands for Time Master (Master of Time), and 42 indicates the diameter of the case. The shape of the latter is a classic round, the material, of course, is stainless steel. It is based on the Seiko TMI NH35 automatic caliber, the functions are hours, minutes, seconds and date. Case water resistance 100 m, luminescent hands and markers, sapphire crystal, screw-down crown and case back (transparent), several color and strap options. Great watch for every day, and with a sports bias.
The steel three-handers with the date (delicately executed) of the A45D and A45 series are powered by the Japanese self-winding Seiko TMI NH35 caliber. The numbers 45 in the designation of the rulers reflect the diameter of the case, which, by the way, is made in the turtle configuration (turtle). The flagship line is the Aquamarine Pro Diver Infinity (A45D), a “diving” watch that has all the professional features in accordance with the international standard ISO6425: 300 m water resistance, effective phosphor illumination of the hands and marks, screw-down crown and back cover, etc.
Separately, it is worth mentioning the bezel: it, as it should be for "divers", is rotating, but internal, and an additional crown at "2 o'clock" (also, of course, screwed) serves to turn it. Add more sapphire crystal and various options - a blue or black dial, a rubber strap or a Milanese weave steel bracelet.
The Aquamarine A45 (on the same caliber) and Aquamarine A38 (on the Japanese quartz Miyota) lines have a case water resistance of 200 m, diameters of 45 and 38 mm, respectively.
Panzer Air Collection
The marking here is F46, which means: F - Flieger (in German - "pilot"), diameter 46 mm. Indeed, we have a massive round steel watch (with or without IP coating), made in a pronounced "pilot" style. The defining features of this design include a clearly legible dial with large Arabic numerals and hands stylized as propeller blades, a convenient crown, and a transparent case back decoration reminiscent of turbine blades. Case water resistance - 50 m.
Functionally, the watch is again a three-hand watch with a date, powered by the Seiko TMI NH35 automatic caliber. And, as always, Panzera has a sapphire crystal and a choice of options, including a Milanese weave bracelet or strap, leather or nylon.
