Viceroy Mens Watches Real Madrid Collection

Real Madrid After Winning Spanish Super Cup 2012


by Adrian Herscovici  

Viceroy’s Accessory to a Legend

Viceroy WatchesReal Madrid is a highly successful professional soccer team based in Madrid, Spain. The team, originally named the Madrid Football Club, was founded in 1902. The club was renamed Real Madrid in 1920 by King Alfonso XIII, who bestowed the club with the name real (the Spanish word for royal – pronounced “ray-al”) along with the crown that appears in the team’s coat of arms.Real Madrid Coat of Arms

Viceroy is a Spanish-owned company that values its partnerships and ambassadors; in the sports world, this includes F1 racing champion Fernando Alonso. Like Real Madrid, Alonso is Spanish and among the very best in his sport. The relationship between Viceroy and Spain’s most celebrated football club is, therefore, quite fitting.

The men’s Chronograph is the most intricate model in Viceroy’s Real Madrid Collection. (Other versions are simpler time-and-date models.) A handful of details tie the legendary club to the watch, all of which are subtly integrated. Two of these details appear on the dial: the most overt is the team (and watch) name – Real Madrid – which sits beneath the 12 o’clock marker. The other is something that perhaps only a fan would recognize: the blue color of the dial is similar to the blue that appears in the team emblem.

A more decisive connection to the team appears on the solid caseback, where the Real Madrid coat of arms is engraved. The name Real Madrid appears once more on the strap buckle.

The watch itself is an assertive sport watch with a 43 mm stainless steel case that is water resistant to 165 feet. The rich blue color of the dial, visible beneath the mineral glass crystal, changes slightly depending on the light. Plenty of polished steel, as well as white and silver accents give the watch a modish and tasteful appearance, as does the addition of a matching blue rubber strap.

Two complications are represented on the dial: a chronograph and a small pointer date. The chronograph has a central seconds hand, and at 10 o’clock, a 30-minute sub-dial. Its opposite sub-dial at 3 o’clock tracks constant seconds. The stationary bezel features a tachymeter for use in combination with the chronograph to track speed over an elapsed distance.

The sub-dial at 6 o’clock is the pointer date. A thick white track surrounds it and differentiates it from the chronograph sub-dials. The numbers and hour markers are large and coated with luminous paint, as are the hour and minute hands for good legibility in the dark. A 24-hour track is printed on the outside of the dial for quick reference.

In addition to blue and white, watches in the Real Madrid Collection also come in black and red – the colors of Viceroy. Every watch in the collection is powered by a reliable quartz movement. For every fan of the Real Madrid football club, the Viceroy Real Madrid Collection is a brilliant accessory to the legend. For others, the watch is a cool and rarely glimpsed addition to any watch collection. Purchase your new Viceroy watch from an authorized Viceroy dealer.

Viceroy Watches Fun Colors Square Collection


by Adrian Herscovici  

Viceroy WatchesThe Fun Colors collection by Viceroy is a spirited series of watches for anyone with a real lust for life. The Fun Colors Square models within the collection offer a change of pace from the everyday circular shapes that are so common in watch designs.

Like other watches in the series, Fun Colors Square watches come in a variety of big cases, 42 x 42 mm, in either bright white or rich black, both of which provide a perfect foundation for other colors to be overlaid. One great feature of square cases in general is that they are less common and offer fashion-minded people a way of creating different looks involving more geometric patterns, especially when paired with accessories such as belt buckles and jewelry.

Along with color, texture is an important feature of the Fun Colors Square collection. The slate-colored black dial of the model pictured has a sunray pattern that permeates the dial with energy and movement, and changes slightly depending on the light. This model has light-blue features: everything from the dial, to the strap stitching and the crown accent share this color. Other watches in the collection have similar color arrangements, but the variety of the colors available means there is one for every person’s taste.

The large sword-shaped hour and minute hands are common to the collection, too; the hands are easy to read and remind us of traditional pilots watches. Watch lovers will note an interesting and rarely seen design feature of the Fun Colors Square models – the seconds track, marked by indices on the dial, is repeated on the stationary dive-style bezel along with numbers, thus incorporating the bezel into time-reading and allowing the dial itself to remain uncluttered.

Fun Colors Square models include those with a date function and some models are available with a chronograph. The watches are water resistant to 165 feet. Mineral glass is the front-crystal material of choice and all of the cases are made of stainless steel, each combined with a rubber strap for a fresh and sporty appeal.

The watches are designed to fit both men and women comfortably so go ahead – take a break from the ordinary and go square! Purchase your new Viceroy watch from an authorized Viceroy dealer.

Viceroy Mens Watches Magnum Collection


by Adrian Herscovici  

Viceroy WatchesLooking for a sports watch that can serve double duty as a watch for elegant occasions? The Magnum collection by Viceroy is designed for both casual and more formal purposes. The collection features a mix of chronograph and three-handed models in a variety of colors, but all of them share a sport-centric personality and a stylish finish.

Buy Viceroy WatchesThe word magnum derives from the Latin word magnus, meaning “great,” and has several associations to both names and products. The word is also generally associated with larger-than-average things, such as a big wine bottle, firearm or rocket. Watches in the Viceroy Magnum collection live up to this expectation with large cases such as the three-handed model pictured, which measures in at 46mm in diameter.

Buy Viceroy WatchesThe texture of the dial on this watch is prevalent among the different Magnum models, with an engraved pin-stripe design that adds depth to an otherwise clean dial. Another depth-adding element is the chapter ring, which has a minute track along its circumference. The ring is set on top of the dial base and is slightly angled, with hour markers extending from it, overlapping the base of the dial. Bold numerals are applied atop for a multi-layered effect. The date wheel on this watch is partly open displaying several numbers; an arrow specifies the exact date. Numerals on the date wheel are luminous for ease of legibility. Most models in the collection feature partly skeletonized hands with luminous paint coating the solid areas.

All of these features are enclosed by style-driven stainless steel cases. The three-handed model here features six pivot points, four of which are highlighted by large polished screws. Models with square cases are also available. Magnum watches are water resistant to 165 feet, have a mineral glass front crystal and quartz movements. The straps are made from rubber in keeping with the sporty tone but are neatly integrated into with the case for a modern and sophisticated appearance.

Want to cover all the angles? Consider a Viceroy Magnum for life, day and night. Purchase your new Viceroy watch from an authorized Viceroy dealer.
