Today, things are a bit different, as the major brands are increasingly focusing on the internet and at the same time, it is difficult for smaller brands to acquire mechanical movements or the parts necessary to produce their watches. Nevertheless, we admire the efforts required for smaller brands such as Jordi Swiss Icon to produce watches and bring them to market. This is a review of the Jordi Chronograph Red Horizon.
Stephen Forsey: Born in St. Albans, England, I inherited my passion for the intricacies of mechanics from my father. From 1987, I specialized in antique watch restoration, which led to a position as head of Asprey’s prestigious watch restoration department, and then furthered my horological education at WOSTEP in Switzerland.
How Big Should My Watch Be?
Interstellar wanted to feature a very traditionally "tool style" timepieces with an American character. At 42mm wide, the steel case of the Murph watch has been totally brushed with a look that Hamilton refers to as "rough." There is a simple stepped bezel and a large crown that is reminiscent of more classic timepieces. The Khaki-collection style dial is black with an aged type of lume and is beautifully symmetrical, as it does not have a date window. Currently, Hamilton does not offer any Khaki watches without a date window on the dial, and I have strongly advised them that producing one (even as a test) would more than likely result in very good sales, given how beautiful and legible the dials are. Inside the watches are Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movements.
