Giulio Romano – Emblem of Italy Caseback

by John Sealander  

From the multi-talented Renaissance painter who is the brand’s
namesake, to the Italian coat of arms on every caseback,

Giulio Romano timepieces are a celebration of Italy’s heritage.

Giulio Romano WatchesIt’s no surprise that that the enormously talented Mannerist painter Giulio Romano became the namesake for an exciting new collection of Italian timepieces. From their unique stainless steel crown with seven raised dots, to the Italian coat of arms engraved on each caseback, every Giulio Romano timepiece is a celebration of Italy’s rich cultural heritage.

Emblem of ItalyThe emblem of Italy, engraved on the back of each watch, represents the richness and diversity of Italy. The five-pointed star, or stellone d’italia, represents the protection provided by the army of the Italian Republic.

The gear in the center represents the Italian constitution that governs the republic of Italy and the willingness of the Italian people to work hard to achieve their goals. The oak and olive branches flanking this cogwheel represent the beautiful landscape of Italy and the productivity of the fertile land. When this emblem was first proposed in 1946 under the leadership of Alcide De Gasperi, it was put to a vote of the Italian people who chose the design themselves.

Italy uses this distinctive coat of arms to this day and it has become a source of pride to all Italians. To further celebrate its Italian roots, each Giulio Romano Collection is named after a different region in Italy and shows off a different aspect of Italian style and design.

Father's Day

by John Sealander  

Give Dad Quality Time

Father’s Day is only weeks away. Instead of another tie or a pair of Argyle socks, perhaps it’s time to give Dad something he really wants on his special day. Wouldn’t Dad like to receive a handsome new wristwatch? Of course he would.

With so many exciting styles and models to choose from, it’s not hard to find a watch that perfectly matches Dad’s personality. Start with the selections shown below. You’ll find fine timepieces in every price range for the sportsman, adventurer, or businessman in your life.

Johan Eric Watches

Johan Eric WatchesWhen Dad goes off to work, he’ll look his very best with a Johan Eric Tondor on his wrist. This handsome tonneau-shaped design features a classic three-hand configuration with a beautiful, integrated mesh band. With its vacuum ion plated rose gold bezel and indices, this slim, classically inspired watch looks much more expensive than it actually is.

For a minimalist, modern look, Dads will appreciate the stunning good looks of the Johan Eric Hobro. The Hobro features an all black IP coated stainless steel case with a matching black dial. A black mesh band completes the stealthy look. The Hobro’s red tipped second hand and easy-to-read date wheel at 6 o’clock provide the perfect contrast to this understated appearance.

Rüdiger Watches

This classically styled diver watch features a stylish protected crown and a unidirectional, rotating stainless steel bezel marked in 60-minute increments.

If you’re not going to give Dad a Porsche on his special day, you can certainly give him something that is characteristically German. The simple understated dial of the Rüdiger Siegen, with its small continuous seconds display, gives this unique watch a distinctly Bauhaus look. A beautiful rose gold crown provides an elegant accent to the harmonious design.

From the massive stainless steel screws securing the bezel, to the precisely knurled crown and pushers, this precision timepiece exhibits a level of quality that is extremely difficult to find in this price range.

If Dad always fancied himself as a racing driver, you’ll definitely want to get him the spectacular Giulio Romano Pescara driver’s multifunction watch. This specialized timepiece features oversized, color-coded pushers to make adjustments easy, even while wearing driving gloves. The Pescara is fitted with a thick, genuine leather strap that complements the case with decorative topstitching and colorfully edged ventilation holes that match the hands and indices.

Giulio Romano Pescara Collection

Pescara Italy Car Racing

by John Sealander  

A City of Racing Drivers Provides the
Inspiration for a Great Drivers Watch

Giulio Romano WatchesPescara is a bustling city of over 400,000 people, located on Italy’s beautiful Adriatic Coast. Although the city’s origins go back to the days of the Romans, there is nothing ancient about the present day city. Pescara is a major economic, commercial and transportation hub, connected by two major pan-European roads. It is also the birthplace of two of Europe’s best known Formula One drivers: Jarno Trulli and Vitantonio Liuzzi.

This connection to F1 racing provided Giulio Romano with the perfect name for its latest creation: the Pescara driver style watch. This fabulous, oversize racing inspired timepiece is a masterpiece of form and function. Bright orange hands and indices provide the ideal contrast with the watch’s black IP case and dial for perfect visibility under even the worst conditions. Oversize, color-coded pushers make adjustments easy, even while wearing driving gloves. There is a 60-second counter inscribed around the chapter ring, along with three, easy-to-read subdials for the day, date and dual 24-hour time.

Buy Giulio Romano WatchesThe Pescara is fitted with a thick, genuine leather strap that complements the case with orange top-stitching and decorative orange-edged ventilation holes. The watch is powered by a premium ISA 9238 quartz movement and is water resistant to 165 feet. Like all Giulio Romano timepieces, the fit and finish on this watch is exceptional. You could pay far more for a timepiece of this quality and still not have the imagination, style and workmanship that Giulio Romano is famous for.
