Every once in a while a well-priced watch catches our eye. Such is the case with the Italian designed and made Officina Del Tempo brand. This company creates a host of powerful and alluring timepieces, especially with its bold new Power Chrono Special Edition. Lovingly referred to in-house as the Military Power, this techno-sport series features four models – each sporting a different color dial.
The key watch features a khaki-colored dial realized on two levels, with bold black numerals at 12:00 and 6:00, interspersed with stick markers – all in SuperLuminova for easy readability. The chronograph functions are cleanly placed in the center of the dial in two open subdials, with a center seconds hand tipped in red. The 49mm case is crafted in black PVD stainless steel with a black PVD bezel. The watch is fitted with a gel strap. The overall effect is a strong, sporty look that offers a go-anywhere, do-anything attitude. The other color versions feature black dials – one with yellow numerals and subdials, one with neon blue numerals and subdials and one with emergency orange numerals and subdials. The Special Edition Power Chrono houses the OS21 caliber quartz movement from Myota with a date window between 4:00 and 5:00. It is water resistant to 10atm, and retails for $725.
