Formex extends its A780 range

First published: 24-08-2010

Fans of the Formex watchmakers will be pleased to know that two versions of its A780 watch collection have recently been announced.

Coming in at a rather large diameter of 45mm when compared to other timepieces on the market, the watches pack in enough features to more than validate the size.

One notable feature that should catch watch wearers' eyes when first looking at this new range is how it manages to make a case that combines square shapes with round ones. This is pulled off well by including many circular items inside the face, with a square forming a border around it.

Colour ranges change throughout the versions, with one opting for a striking yellow and black combination, which makes the white hands stand out even more as a result. The other opts for more natural silver and black shades, though a hint of red instantly stands out.

Both varieties are finished off with a leather strap, which comes complete with port-like holes that illustrate Formex's idea of "perfect balancing of speed and technology".
