Johan Eric JE1500-04-001 Men’s Randers Stainless Steel Silver Sunray Dial Watch


by Meehna Goldsmith  

Johan Eric WatchesThough Johan Eric is a relatively new player in the watch game, the Dane, who lives in Randers on Denmark’s Jutland Peninsula, has designed a winner with the Randers Stainless Steel Sunray Dial.

Buy Johan Eric JE1500-04-001 Men's Randers Stainless Steel Silver Sunray Dial WatchJohan Eric says the inspiration for the watch came from the peninsula, which is the reason for the model’s name. However, the design of the watch also reveals Johan Eric’s origins. Influenced by the German Bauhaus movement, Danish design was developed in the mid-20th century and is known for its simplicity and functionality. Prominent artists include Finn Juhl and Hans Wegner and the style is seen in the Sydney Opera House and the Egg chair.

The Randers Stainless Steel Silver Sunray Dial reflects this simple yet elegant aesthetic. Your eye immediately travels to the floating off-center sub-seconds in an arc located between 8 and 12 o’clock, unusual for its positioning. But there is another detail that makes it stand out. Most running seconds show marks for each second. In this case, Johan Eric chose to demarcate five-second intervals for the first 30 seconds. The beautiful silver sunray pattern provides a nice contrasting backdrop for the black hour indices and Johan Eric logo, also placed in an untraditional location at 3 o’clock, yet this placement adds balance and contributes to the overall look.

In a 42 mm stainless steel case, the Randers Stainless Steel Silver Sunray Dial watch continues the theme of surprises with the crown between the 7 and 8 o’clock positions. It comes on a leather strap with a crocodile pattern and closes with a buckle clasp.

Haurex 3R501USN Magister Gold IP Retrograde Watch


by Adrian Herscovici  

Haurex’s erudite mix of design, price and quality

Haurex WatchesThe Magister series fuses a variety of elements together, skillfully pushing the boundaries of tradition while edging carefully toward its outer limits. The Haurex 3R501USN features IP rose gold and is the most urbane in the Magister line. Magister is Latin for “master” or “teacher,” and Magister watches indeed offer an interpretation of the basics along with a few advanced design lessons for good measure.

Buy Haurex 3R501USN Magister WatchAt first glance, the eye is immediately drawn to the large swath of IP rose gold that coats the bezel of the ample 44 mm case, which is formed of polished stainless steel. The screw-down caseback has both brushed and polished surfaces; the fluted crown also screws down, and assists the watch to achieve a water-resistance rating of 99 feet. Inside, an efficient Miyota JR00 quartz movement ticks away.

After the bezel, the most prominent characteristic of the watch is the white waffle pattern on the dial and its three different styles of asymmetrically positioned sub-dials. In the lower right quadrant, a retrograde display shows the day of the week; at 9 o’clock, a 24-hour sub-dial displays a second time zone by way of a rotating central disk and small black arrow, and, at 12 o’clock, a third sub-dial displays the date.

A healthy amount of IP rose gold is integrated into the dial design beginning with the applied hour markers. The three primary hands, as well as the hands of the sub-dials, are also coated. Each hand (except for the second hand) is skeletonized in the center. The rotating disk of the 24-hour sub-dial and the frame of the retrograde sub-dial also feature IP rose gold.

The corresponding black silicone strap confidently professes the watch’s sporty personality. The contrast of the strap against the case and bezel is distinguishing, and its fitted positioning between the lugs appears smooth and finished. The name HAUREX is embossed through the center of the strap on the long and tail ends, which are connected by an initialed prong buckle in stainless steel.
