On the right side is an onion-style crown, a smooth polished bezel holds a flat sapphire crystal AR coated on the inside above a stunning Summer Blue sector dial. An outer minute track surrounds a raised ring with repeating circular lines and Art Deco numerals and thick lines between marking the hours. The centre has an attractive Guilloche pattern, and elegant skeletonised blued syringe style hands are complemented by a blued sweeping second hand. The dial has a clean sophistication that shimmers in the light as you rotate your wrist. At 12 o’clock we have the Vario motif completing this vintage-inspired dress watch. On the reverse a screw-down case back with a geometric Empire State Building in the centre and the watch details around its edge, inside an automatic Seiko Cal.

The design of this one is fantastic, the dial plays with the light beautifully and the font used for the numerals is very art-deco in styling whilst being super modern! For under £300, you really cannot go wrong with a watch like this, so snap it whilst you can!
Vario is a microbrand based in Singapore that was founded by Ivan Chua in 2016. Initially, Chua started as a strap designer with the goal of introducing entertaining and distinctive patterns to the market. Through crowdfunding, he has launched several successful Kickstarter campaigns, including his own watch designs. These affordable timepieces pay homage to classic period-themed designs, inspired by the 1920s Art Deco period, Tuxedo sector dials and the clean distinctive lines of the Empire State Building.
