JOWISSA J1.066.L Safira 999 Watch


by Meehna Goldsmith  

JOWISSA Quality Swiss Watches Since 1951When master watchmaker Josef Wyss established JOWISSA in 1951, he had a particular plan in mind. He thought of women’s watches not just as objects to tell time but also as beautiful accessories for the wrist. Therefore, he wanted to create beautiful and original timepieces using the topmost quality supplies available. However, Wyss didn’t want to exclude any women from possessing fashionable timepieces and that’s why he decided to make them at an accessible price point.

With the JOWISSA J1.066.L Safira 999, JOWISSA achieves its goal of making jewelry for the wrist. The J1.066.L Safira 999 reminds one of a beautiful work of modern art. Resembling a canvas, the dial has a lovely “painting.” Against a white backdrop, four arches in blue tones ranging in aqua to green come down from the top of the dial between 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock. They almost look like a mini rainbow, giving the picture a cheerful and bright look.

Leaving the dial uncluttered without hour indexes or seconds hand was a good decision, as any other ornamentation would detract from the design. The time is still easy to read with the two silver sword hands circling the dial. Continuing the metaphor, a thick white bezel frames the painting and secures with a white satin strap that clasps with a buckle, ready to hang on the wrist.

Key features:

  • Swiss made timepiece
  • Swiss made Ronda 762 quartz movement

While larger watches are the trend, that doesn’t mean that some designs aren’t meant to sit in a larger case. Fashionable women know that when choosing a watch it’s best to go with what suits their style and taste and not what’s du jour: that is truly what defines fashion forward thinking. In fact, the JOWISSA J1.066.L Safira 999 watch’s aesthetic would be diminished if it were sized up. The watch is seated in a feminine and dainty 32 mm stainless steel case and is powered by a Swiss quartz movement. It’s a delightful accessory for the woman who makes her own trends. Purchase your JOWISSA watch from an authorized JOWISSA dealer.

From traditional to daring and whimsical, there is always a nice surprise from JOWISSA. The JOWISSA J1.040.XL Safira 24 is a woman’s timepiece that straddles the line between traditional and modern in a beautiful blending of elements.

The JOWISSA J1.040.XL Safira 24 uses monochromatic tones to great effect. Though simple in design the white dial gives off a very modernist look. Round silver hour indexes frame the white lumed hands outlined in black, while a convenient date aperture framed in silver features a black date numeral on a white background to match the color scheme. A white center seconds hand ticks off the seconds. Balancing out the black and white theme, the JOWISSA brand name, situated at 12 o’clock, and the Swiss Made indication, at 6 o’clock, are colored black.

JOWISSA is known for using fashion forward materials such as Swarovski crystals, ceramic and sapphire. The JOWISSA J1.040.XL Safira 24 uses sapphire to great effect, giving the watch particular poise and avant-garde elegance. Composed of faceted sapphire, the bezel adds dimension and an architectural aesthetic to the timepiece. The genuine patent leather calfskin band with stainless steel buckle rounds out the aesthetic, keeping the design clean and consistent. This is a watch that can be worn in a casual or more formal environment and fit right in.
