When you talk about retro, you think of the “good old days”, in contrast to today’s time, which is passing us by faster and faster. Poljot International’s new “Retro Classic” model stops time short and revives the feeling of the bygone era by referencing the past with various design elements.
The main feature of the clock are the numbers. They are authentically designed in the old retro style, while the shadow in the background in the nostalgic style, clearly emphasizes the numbers. In addition, the numbers glow in the dark to be easily visible. The red number ‘12’ accentuates the characteristic feature of the ‘20s and ‘30s and underlines the affiliation to the “good old” times.
The colors of the dials are in classic finishes – champagne, green and silver. The sunburst finish is a common production method of the time and was also used on these dials. The hour and minute hands are made in onion shape with luminous material that was a popular design in the days of “swing and jazz”, owing to its readability.
The case is made of stainless steel, the size – 38.5 mm in diameter – corresponds to the revolutionary times. Without the front glass, the case measures only 9.15 mm and houses a hand-wound mechanical movement from Vostok, the Caliber 2409, which also has its beginnings in the last century. The movement is visible through the glass back of the case and is left unfinished to preserve its nostalgic characteristics
The watch also features a soft and supple calfskin strap with contrasting stitching on the side, making it a definite eye-catcher.
Overall, the new “Retro Classic” is an expressive, classic retro watch with charisma that will make the heart of any retro timepiece lover beat faster.
