Getting into shape for city lifeBASELWORLD 2017: New Wenger Urban Classic timepieces
Like the branches of an impressive family tree, a new shape is assigning all Wenger timepieces a binding style signature. The 2017 Wenger Urban Classic watches are a case in point. A perfect circle and long lugs provide a contemporary appearance.
At the same time, a salute to the inspiration from the iconic Wenger Commando, launched at the end of the twentieth century, echoes the substance of Swissness. These proudly masculine urban heroes have their feet on their ground in terms of precision and quality. As far as looks are concerned, this is city chic to go.
The Wenger Urban Classic Petite Seconde – The power of now
Every second counts for the modern male and accuracy tops the agenda of the Wenger Urban Classic Petite Seconde. A subdial at 6’oclock tracks the passing of each second, while an elegantly proportioned main dial takes meticulous care of the hours and minutes. This timepiece is for the discerning wearer who considers external and internal beauty to be inseparable soulmates. He is drawn by the classic blue dial and fine brown leather strap with its matching stitching. Effortless timekeeping on the move, with elongated indexes and their faithful back-up crew, in the form of SuperLuminova numerals and hands, seal the deal.
Wenger Urban Classic Chrono – Now is the time
The intrinsic openness of the new case shape for Wenger watches is the perfect canvas for the art of chronograph design. The Wenger Urban Classic Chrono seduces with its symmetry – and delivers on its promise with a Swiss made movement. Blue confirms itself as the new black on a sunray brushed dial that gives excellent visibility to the stainless steel and SuperLuminova timekeeping and date detail. A light brown, stitched leather strap completes the picture. Will it take the wearer’s imagination to his treasured brogues, the upholstery of his dream machine, or the vintage boxing gloves that hang up in his city loft? Only time will tell.
