Direnzo DRZ_02 Automatic Swiss Made Watch

Kickstarter is a veritable hotbed of first class watches and whenever we’re on the hunt for some new timepieces to enjoy, it is invariably one of our first ports of call. Well, we’ve hit the jackpot once again in the shape of these brilliant looking Direnzo DRZ_02 Automatic Swiss Made Watch which has taken the crowdfunding platform by storm and has already exceeded £100k in pledges.

Available for just £407 during the Kickstarter campaign, the Direnzo DRZ_02 Automatic Swiss Made Watch has some mighty fine characteristics that make its price tag all the more remarkable. Billed as one of the most beautiful retro-futuristic Swiss Made Automatic Watches ever made, this eye-catching timepiece has certainly made an impression on us here at The Coolector and it is the result of many months of experimentation in order to create a unique and innovative timepiece whose aesthetics connect with both the past and the future.

Vintage Style Design

The first thing that will catch your eye with these brilliant Direnzo DRZ_02 Automatic Swiss Made Watch is the breathtaking dial. It boasts an outstanding elegant and symmetrical design which is even more appreciable when seen shining in the dark. The dial has a sandwich like construction with two layers, the upper of which is moulded into a bowl shape – a complex element in terms of the watch’s manufacturing. This shape means you can generate a seamless continuity between the dial and the case. The bowl shape and double-layer construction together produce a much deeper dial, as opposed to the more standard flat dial seen on the majority of watches.

With a case inspired by the futuristic curves of the Bugattis from the 1930s, the Direnzo DRZ_02 Automatic Swiss Made Watch is designed with a marked sports style, while sacrificing nothing of the brand’s sophisticated spirit. The elliptical elevation is the case’s most outstanding feature, which accentuates its edges with polished fillets and casting shadows due to its countercurve at the transversal section. Not many timepieces offer the same level of elegance as this and the fact you can pick one up for under £500 on Kickstarter is nothing short of extraordinary.

Available in two different materials – namely, Black PVD and brushed stainless steel with polished edges  – this exemplary timepiece is a great addition to any watch aficionado’s line up. The domed sapphire crystal glass casing gives the watch a stylish vintage look while still showing the dial from every angle. The glass will have a layer of Anti-reflective (AR) coating on the inside of the glass to help reduce reflections.

Swiss Made Excellence

Magnificent components are the call of the day with this watch with the automatic movement chosen being the Swiss Sellita SW-200, which is a high-quality and accurate three hands mechanism that boasts a 38 hours of power reserve and a 28’800 A/h (4 Hz) frequency. Apart from the exceptional assembly and quality control performed in the watchmaker’s Swiss atelier, each timepiece is inspected personally by Direnzo before being dispatched.

There is still plenty of time to get your hands on this superb Swiss made timepiece on Kickstarter for the bargain price of just £407 and if you’re looking for a high end automatic watch that doesn’t break the bank then this certainly ticks all of the right boxes.
