At The Coolector we’re always on the look out for innovators and game-changers, offering us different ways to shop. That’s why Filippo Loreti caught our attention. Launched in 2014, this start-up is disrupting the luxury watch market by creating premium timepieces without traditional markups. That’s right – they’re making luxury watches affordable for everyone.

The premium timepieces have already been seen on the wrists of some of the internet’s most stylish influencers, and we can see why. Each of their watches takes design inspiration from a different Italian city and that Italian influence is evident in everything that they create. The Venice Moonphase Blue Gold Watch was inspired by the iconic floating city and its understated yet luxurious aesthetic is ideally suited to any dapper chap.

Premium Quality for a Fair Price

It’s hard to believe that the Venice Moonphase Blue Gold watch retails at just $169. The exemplary premium features are usually reserved for timepieces that cost considerably more than that. It boasts plenty of eye-catching features which includes a 50m water resistance, a MIYOTA 6P00 movement, sapphire crystal glass casing and a 316L stainless steel case to name but a few of the most impressive.

It’s safe to say that at Coolector HQ we find it hard to resist old-world romanticism of some timepieces and the moonphase indicator of this Venice watch gives this watch exactly that. If you’re looking for a new timepiece then this one from Filippo Loreti ticks some very stylish boxes. World-class craftsmanship, unmatched quality and high-end design.

The contemporary masterpiece boasts classic lines and features that manage to make this timepiece contemporary and timeless at the same time. Luxurious gold casing is matched by vibrant gold hands and indices, while week, date and month sub dials add subtle texture. This Venice Moonphase is our favourite Filippo Loreti timepiece to date here at The Coolector thanks to its sophisticated details and distinctive Italian style. The eye catching blue hue contrasts handsomely with the gold and the Italian leather strap is a fine demonstration of luxury craftsmanship.

Two watches in one with Italian Influence

After you purchase a Venice Moonphase watch from Filippo Loreti you can order additional straps that will give your timepiece a completely new look. Choose the blue Italian leather strap for daytime, and when you want a more dressy look you can replace it with the gold mesh strap. We love that Filippo Loreti is fully embracing Italian style and although it’s the Swiss who are famed for their watchmaking, Italy comes out front in terms of style, quality and heritage.

Both casual watch fans and more avid collectors will appreciate the Venice Moonphase timepiece thanks to the $159 price tag and undeniably premium features. We’re not at all surprised that Filippo Loreti have become one of the most recognised entry level watchmakers on the market and after seeing the Venice Moonphase for ourselves we can’t wait to see what the future holds for this exciting start-up. With world-class craftsmanship, a 3D engraved case back, a sophisticated moonphase movement and 10 year guarantee of quality all for $169, it’s hard to resist. What are you waiting for?
