The Felix has a couple recognizing highlights, boss among them is the dial format and plan. The combination of textual styles and tones is certainly special – my eye is attracted to the content of the Stella signature, which feels contemporary, and takes after grafiti. The Arabic numerals are comparably huge and unmistakable, and give the dial a fun, energetic energy. This is something of an enemy of moderate watch, with style acquired from the Art Deco plan language and a lot of little subtleties to keep visual premium up.
The other extraordinary trait of the Felix is the case plan. The mid-case has been given a dark DLC covering, placing it as a conspicuous difference with the brushed and cleaned surfaces of the remainder of the hardened steel case. This feels like an advanced interpretation of two-tone to me, and keeping in mind that it doesn’t appear to offer any conspicuous useful preferred position, the dark on steel look is smooth and holds a certain appeal.
The Felix is 40mm in breadth and 48mm from one drag to another, which should wear effectively for some, who are utilized to current watches. There are an aggregate of six dial variations accessible on the Felix, the most intriguing of which is absolutely the blue cloth dial, which resembles denim and functions admirably with the general tasteful of the dial.
Stella’s Kickstarter dispatches today, and incorporates advantages for early patrons like a specially crafted caseback apparatus, intended to fit impeccably to the caseback of a Felix. Stella
