Orbita is one of the top brands for watch winders in the world. The thing is, this American company has so much more than watch winders to offer. One of the things we particularly love – and think is a great gift idea for the watch-loving dad or grad in your family – re the company’s superb flashlights. The one to look at now: the Orbita Limited Edition Goldlight WatchLight. The flashlight – based on the brand’s best-selling line – is sold with limited edition sleeves that are held in place with 24-karat gold-plated end caps. The sleeves are handmade and are used to customize one of the brand’s top flashlights. Customized sleeves can run the gamut from incorporating cigar bands to tiny watch parts into the sleeve.
The new series of luxury illumination tools (flashlights to us ordinary folks) is powered by a high-energy rechargeable Lithium-Ion battery that delivers unprecedented levels of light. Embedded in the clear Polyester body of the carbon fiber and stainless steel WatchLight flashlight is a collection of actual watch parts; dials, gears, bridges and balance wheels. There is also a design created using cigar labels and Orbita will custom make something using a customer’s own parts/ideas. Because each is individually made, each is unique. It is sold in a lacquered wood gift box with battery charger and spare rechargeable lithium ion battery. The flashlight with accessories kit (sleeve and end caps) retails for a cool $495.
