My purchase of this watch was the result of several hours of research trying to find a simple, tasteful men’s analogue watch that would suit a range of smart outfits for day-to-day wear and evening events.
It was between either this watch the Lorus Classic RH880BX9 - £47 or the Daniel Wellington Classic Bristol Men’s can be found online for £90. Both watches are nearly identical in style and are the same diameter, but the Daniel Wellington is 1mm thinner 6mm than the 7mm thick Lorus, and the DW does not have a seconds hand.
I was also tempted by the 38mm Bering Men’s Classic, which has sapphire glass and 50m water resistance - but considering the bashing I give my watches I didn’t want to shell out £143 for something I replace every 2 years or so.
I’ve had a good experience with Lorus in the past with the gorgeous Lorus RXN65AX9 with blue nato strap the watch I was replacing due to scratching it to hell. But I wanted something more refined and mature.
So, ultimately I bought this watch the Lorus Classic RH880BX9 in PVD rose plating.
Sounds daft, but my initial reaction when it arrived was “oh, it’s big and white”. You are effectively strapping a large, white plate onto your forearm. The vertical walls of the case which are also white contribute to the sense of size and whiteness.
In my opinion, the watch comes across as slightly try-hard and cheesy - i.e. it’s trying too hard to look refined and “classic”, but actually looks ever-so-slightly cliché in doing so, and you can feel like a bit of a ponce wearing it.
I tend to think if they’d just toned the white face down a bit to more of an egg shell white, the watch would be more tasteful.
I have a fairly broad wrist 8” circumference and I certainly wouldn’t want to be wearing something like this if my wrist was any smaller.
Still, it is growing on me and I do quite like it. I mean it goes nicely with smart blazers and that kind of thing if you can handle the slight side-serving of cheesiness. But sometimes I wear a bracelet with it just to distract from its big mooney presence on my arm.
It’s reasonably slender and light. If you wanted you could easily change out the strap for a fabric nato strap if you have a sensitivity to metals against the skin which I have in the past - and I might do that.
The seconds hand does not align exactly with the decals on the face, which - call me picky - but it just seems that a timepiece of any quality would at least see to this detail.
All in all, and especially for the price, it’s a nice watch in a simple, reasonably refined style which is hard to find in gents watches. For that reason I’ll give it 4 stars, but I very nearly gave it 3 for the reasons above.
Rating: Excellent (5 / 5)
Very clean and beautiful watch, definitely worth the money and looks close to exactly of what it does in the image, if not better. The crown used to edit the time is really stiff and hard to get out to use, but to me that is a positive and shows the quality of the build It does loosen up though.
