This is a lot of watch for the money!
The Jowissa watches caught my attention several times during my Swiss business travels in the past, and I finally took the plunge to order one online from USA, sight unseen.
The overall experience is outstanding! The ordering/shipping process is simple, fast, and free!. Once I received the piece, I was pleasantly surprised with the design, and quality of it. I view Jowissa as a fashion brand, and yet my new watch invokes so many of the feelings/appreciationsI have with the Swiss luxury brands. For example, the lug shape is inspired by vintage watches, often seen in modern Omega Speedies, Tissot Le Locle Powermatics, Breitling Navitimers...etc. The aesthetics is excellent; the details of the face, and contrast of the sub-dials gives it a much more 3-dimension feel. The leather band is high quality, substantial, and should age gracefully; the band's quick-release mechanism is genius, and in my view a must-have if you want more options for your watch. The 40mm case diameter and color combo works well on my 165mm circumference wrist in an understated, and yet intriguing manner.
For full transparency, I did find luminescent watch hands to be on the dimmer side, but it doesn't detract from my fashion-oriented purpose with this watch. My initial purchase did encountered a performance issue, most likely due to international shipping, but Simon from Jowissa took care of it in the usual straightforward Swiss way, thank you!
I will definitely buy more Jowissa watches,…
