Vescari, A Microbrand with a difference

02/06/2022

Introduction

Let me introduce you to Vescari watches, They are a Dutch watch microbrand that was founded in 2016. Their goal like most brands is to produce quality, affordable watches. But with one difference, Vescari only make watches in 40mm, as they believe this is the perfect size that will appeal to a wider demographic

The Chestor

So the watch I'll be reviewing is the Chestor.  Which Is the second release by Vescari. The first being, the Heritage Chronograph launched with great success, in 2016. Which led to the creation of the Chestor.


REVIEW TIME

Ok, let's get into it. First, what's in the box, you get a large polishing cloth, an additional black nylon strap ( which has quick release pins), your warranty card, and of course front and center you get, Your Chestor. 

Let's start with the Case, as I said all Vescari watches are 40mm and this is no different. Made with 316l stainless steel and finished  with a polished PVD rose gold coating.

The dial on the Chestor is a real showstopper, featuring a black sunburst dial with hand-polished rose gold markers and two sub-dials at the 3 and 9 o clock position, All encased with a domed mineral crystal with Ar Coating. I would have preferred the scratch resistance benefits of a sapphire crystal here, but you can't win them all. I am a fan of the additional strap that is provided, as it gives you the option of making giving the watch a more casual apperance with the black, very well made nylon strap, or for a dressier option, simply use the dark brown leather strap, that has a real premium feel to it making the Chestor tick is,  the Japanese  Quartz, Movement, the Miyota 6s21 along with a water resistance of just 50meters, not that you'd be wearing this swimming anyway.

Overall Thoughts

Would I recommend the Chestor? Yes for a few reasons. One is the option of a 30 day returns policy with FREE Worldwide Shipping, two aesthetically it's a beautiful looking watch, and I love the additional strap with quick release pins and lastly but most important VALUE. Coming in at the time of this review at just 149euros, I feel you're getting a lot of bang for the buck here. Feel free to check them out at the link below.
