Just a few years ago watch diameters increased to suit modern tastes and some brands even experimented and expanded upon the trend with truly massive watches. Italian watch company Haurex was one of them. The three-handed Turbina measured in at a whopping 52 mm, and while the watch looked cool, only certain men could accommodate the size.
In the same family, the Turbina II keeps the masculine good looks of the Turbina and makes some aesthetic and functional changes. First off, the Turbina II now comes down to a more reasonable 48 mm. The watch is still large and maintains that characteristic and imposing presence, but now allows for wider audiences of men who liked the Turbina but couldn’t manage the extra 4 mm.
In a black IP coated stainless steel case, the Turbina II keeps the striking size of the Arabic numerals, which are beige, as well as the protective crown, except the crown mechanism has been moved from the left side of the case to the right, along with the chronograph pushers. Yes, the Turbina II now has a chronograph complication, adding a sporty element.
The black matte dial layout is clean and simple to read and a great backdrop for the beige numerals and hands. The chronograph minute indicator is at 12 o’clock and the hour at 6 o’ clock, while the running seconds is traditionally placed concentrically around the beige hands. There is also a date function at 3 o’clock.
