Formex has been taking some lovely significant actions in the last 50% of 2020. A couple of months prior we presented to you a hands on glance at their new Reef jumper , which is the main watch from the brand following an update of their activity, logo notwithstanding. A week ago saw the divulging of another form of what is maybe their particular watch, the Essence, in a simple to wear 39mm case size. This is positively important for a pattern in the watch community – more modest cases are coming once more into vogue after a drawn out time of huge cases becoming the dominant focal point – however it appears to be a beautiful significant move for Formex, which is so firmly connected with maximalist sports watches with a great deal of wrist presence. A 39mm watch is normally going to be more refined, and it’s a compelling watch if you’ve been Formex-inquisitive before yet have been anxious about case size and wearability.
The distinctive element of the Essence and different watches in the Formex setup is their Case Suspension System, which mounts the case on a progression of springs, permitting it to all the more likely ingest stuns. Dissimilar to the new Reef connected over, the new Essence utilizes this component, which is absolutely a noteworthy gathering stunt, and the calling card of the Essence specifically. The general concept of it goes connected at the hip with the advanced, rakish styling of the Essence case, which has been to a great extent ported to the 39mm adaptation from the fundamentally bigger 43mm Essence that the brand actually offers. Formex brings up that the exact completing of the Essence case is the equivalent on the 39mm variant as its bigger kin, with high cleaned chamfers, brushed case flanks, and fresh advances for what it’s worth. The new case is a tempting 10mm thick, so this should wear impressively better on a bigger number of wrists than the 43mm Essence.
There will be four dial variations accessible at dispatch, including another brilliant green choice. Your other dial decisions incorporate dark, blue, and dégradé , which is a dial with a particular smoked impact, and hue somewhere close to silver, earthy colored, and dark. It’s very striking. All dials highlight vertical brushing stood out from level lines that are exclusively machined utilizing CNC technology.
As with other Formex watches, the Essence Automatic in its 39mm appearance is a COSC chronometer, with a Sellita SW200-1 running inside.
