by John Sealander  

When a world champion F1 racing driver like Fernando Alonso checks the time, he needs something very special.

Viceroy WatchesWhen two-time F1 racing world champion Fernando Alonso became a brand ambassador for Spanish watchmaker Viceroy, the company decided to create an entire collection based around the needs and sensibilities of top racing drivers. The resulting race-oriented Fernando Alonso Collection is a celebration of sport and competition, featuring sleek, sporty timepieces that are packed with functional features any good driver would appreciate.

Buy Viceroy Men's 47617-55 Black IP Chronograph Rubber WatchThe showpiece of this impressive collection is the stealthy looking Special Edition Chronograph. This aerodynamic 44 mm timing tool is a driver’s dream. With two well-placed 6-minute and 24-hour totalizers, along with a third free running small seconds display, this watch is well-equipped to time events of any duration.

A signature element seen in all Fernando Alonso watches are the four distinctive hex nuts that attach the bezel to the stealthy IP black case. These screws, which have the appearance of automotive lug-nuts, add a unique racing flair to this versatile chronograph. The comfortable, soft black rubber strap has been completely integrated with the protruding tapered lugs for a seamless, unified appearance. The combination of a dial that has the appearance of a racing dashboard instrument and a grooved, rubber strap that evokes images of F1 racing tires is totally compelling.

Like an F1 driver’s car, the Viceroy Special Edition 47617-55 is both awesomely beautiful and completely practical. With skeletonized hands that ensure the three sub-dials are always readable, large luminous numbers, and wide flange shaped pushers, this watch is easy to operate and read under the most demanding driving conditions.

A precision quartz movement powers the Special Edition 47617-55, ensuring accuracy and reliability at all times. The watch is water resistant to 165 feet and features a durable mineral glass crystal to protect the dial. Adding to the unique appeal of the Special Edition is a special personalized stainless steel caseback.

Viceroy Men’s 46503-25 Black IP Stainless Steel Bezel Yellow Accented Watch


by Adrian Herscovici  

Big, Bright and Balanced

Viceroy WatchesLarge, round cases paired with black dials is a predominant configuration in modern watchmaking. Popular, too, is the color combination of black and yellow, partly for its verisimilitude in nature, but also for its sharp contrast of dark and bright. Put these elements together and you have a mold for a cool, contemporary sport watch, which is exactly what Viceroy means to achieve with its model number 46503-25.

Buy Viceroy Men's 46503-25 Black IP Stainless Steel Bezel Yellow Accented WatchThe large 46.5 mm stainless steel case and thick lugs are well proportioned with no extraneous flourishes. The fluted crown is the only protrusion. A black ion-plated stainless steel bezel overlays the polished case and looks like a ship’s porthole. The bezel design features eight screws – two in each quadrant where the lugs meet the case – which have the appearance of porthole rivets. Such nautical, aquatic sensibilities extend to other aspects of the watch, as well: the only other writing on the dial other than the Viceroy logo is the simple text at 6 o’clock that reads “Water Resistant 100M” and while not a dive watch, the continuity of the theme is apparent.

Oversize Arabic hour numerals and bar markers are also characteristic of a dive watch: they are easy to see underwater, especially with the contrast provided by the yellow on black elements. The surface of the dial is divided by concentric rings; a circle in the middle is surrounded by smooth rings and then by engraved rings below the hour markers. The solid yellow seconds hand tapers at the top while the hour and minute hands are obelisk-shaped, tapered and pointed at the top. A white 60-seconds and minutes track rounds the outside of the dial. The date window is partially open, a current fashion, with five digits on the wheel visible at one time. A yellow arrow beside the window points to the current date.

The lugs are wide, slightly rounded and solid in appearance. The lug width is 24 mm, which supports a wider strap that is an appropriate match given the substantial case size. The black leather calfskin strap with yellow parallel-stitch pattern completes the unified overall look. The tang buckle is made of stainless steel, as is the solid caseback. As the dial declares, the Viceroy Men’s 46503-25 Watch is water resistant to 100 meters, or 330 feet. Inside, a quartz movement propels the time-and-date functions.

  • Mineral crystal
  • Black calfskin band with yellow topstitching, width 24 mm, tang buckle
  • Water resistant to 330 feet
  • 2-year manufacturer’s warranty

Given this watch’s size and use of a bright color, the overall tone is tasteful and confident in its restraint, a feeling influenced greatly by the muted dark bezel. This Viceroy watch has balanced visual appeal in a bold casual form – a fine result in sport-watch design. Add one to your timepiece collection today.
