A there are a little over a year, we were testing the watch a any newcomer in the world of watchmaking named Charlie Watch. At the time, its dial, its concept of interchangeable and any bracelets which surrounded the brand had seduced us. If it had not announced it, an idea trotted us nevertheless head secretly: “it would still not bad if they were to the automatic”. It would seem that the brand has today granted our wish with the release of a new model this year: the “Original” automatic watch that in its early days of implementation for sale saw its stocks past quickly. You can imagine, we have passed it today at the wrist for a test:
We end of 2013, and two friends named Adrien and Ambroise decided to launch a brand of watches based on the fact that they are on the market no satisfactory model. Paradoxically, it is on a trip to San Francisco that develops in the pair the idea of a new watch brand “made in Paris”, far from those offering products often too expensive and without character. Initially imagined for their circle of friends, their watch “Dogpatch” is developed using a watchmaker from the capital and the project launched on a participatory fundraising campaign. Very quickly, the funds raised exceed their expectations and sauce takes, finally launching the brand in the world of watchmaking! While they were content to until then of two models (a three hands, small seconds) to Swiss quartz movement, it’s no surprise that they were planning to move to the next level with an automatic.
Charlie Watch introduced its “Initial” watch in the summer 2015. This new timepiece is a model three hand driven by a Japanese Miyota 9015 24 rubies with power reserve of 42 hours. It is very reliable and many brands offering the Automatic below € 500 watches picked for their models. Aside from that, we keep here the ingredients that made the success of the first models. The bracelets are interchangeable although the brand does not offer the opportunity to purchase a package with a set of 3 different. However, the watch remains available with three options of origin: ostrich, blue leather and tweed.
According to songaah, Charlie watches wanted a stainless steel case silver of 40 mm, more masculine compared to the elders of 37 mm. The Crown is always placed at 3 and chosen small. Faithful to her recipe, the brand has kept a clean inside White Dial broken with simple markers to the silver finish, a date at 3 o’clock and still the worries of the original detail with the second hand of blue color. Finally, we find a flat sapphire glass and a transparent background revealing the movement of the watch. Everything is assembled in Paris.
Among the three choices of bracelets available, we selected the “Automatic Initial” watch in ostrich, slightly more expensive but also more luxurious finish. She manages in a setting that is more massive than the models to quartz. It is this time cubic and has always the same grainy finish with the logo of the brand stamped on its cover. Inside, attached traditionally watch unfolds while sobriety, one of his main qualities. This does not mean that it lacks character, on the contrary. From the first look, its discreet dial noted by these keys silver as a reminder of the casing, then contrasted with the Blue second hand, adding a touch of modernity seduced.
By inspecting the watch more closely, we can’t see impeccable finishes, her perfect round and flat glass blending perfectly into the whole. The Crown she, does not denote, and also enters this harmonious whole. If one approaches, at the level of the dial, its circumference is provided with small Arabic numerals marking the 5 by 5 seconds. The bracelet on him is really qualitative, forming a sort of pattern in bark, property usually found on ostrich leather.
First steps and the watch does not appear so heavy. However, it is thicker that his predecessor with 9.5 mm because of obviousness, the movement takes more space. At that moment, we realize more of its contrasts: money brilliant case, the fineness of the dial and bracelet covered all. Moreover, the latter is finished a loop in the same steel.
If you expect because it is now customary to equip automatic watches of a transparent background, the surprise is always keen when we returned the watch. This is part of the small pleasures when we have a new model in hand for the first time. Here, everything is perfect and we note in passing the small zippers allowing to change the bracelet easily.
So, what happens to the wrist?
My watch test measure and I gradually determined the ideal size of a watch for my wrist. To be honest, when I want a large model, I opt for the 42 mm, and when I want something a little more mat, it is 40 mm. You guessed it, the size of this Charlie Watch couldn’t have better suit me. Elegance, classic and contemporary side both make it ideal to wear in a variety of outfits. I however tend to think (cognac) bracelet color to associate with black. Be that as it may, there that a shake the wrist to see her start to the quarter turn.
Charlie Watch offers this new watch at a price of € 455. This is a beautiful object to embark in the entry-level auto market. It keeps all the qualities of the first models and adds additional: sobriety, finesse, automatic movement known for its quality/price ratio, are as many points suggesting that the brand is not wrong. The more is this bracelet made in exotic leather found rarely on models of this range (apart from if you make the approach on their own). There is not to say, Charlie Watch did a good job on this one, the Habs argument and more (it’s may be a detail for you, but for me it means a lot). Tested & approved!
