Vero Watches Put a Modern Spin on a Retro Style

first_img Next The simple and supremely functional design of this watch makes for easy time-telling in style. A 316L steel case with sapphire crystal front and back — along with nickel-plated, ceramic-coated dial function — serve as the base for the beautiful watch face, which also features polished, black oxide-coated steel hands and Swiss Super-Luminova illumination (meaning you’ll be able to know it’s midnight even if it’s pitch-black outside).The Rally’s strap is genuine tan leather with cream-colored stitching. The timepiece also features a Swiss Sellita SW 210 movement, is hand-wound, and has a 42-hour power reserve.See ItVero 36 Hand Wound Sunset – $1,080 10 Best Crime Documentaries on Netflix Right Now Previous The coloring on the sunset watch, while meant to mimic an actual sunset, is more reminiscent of an old-school Astros’ jersey, which actually fits perfectly with the throwback, 1970s styling in the watch’s shape, tan leather strap, and numerals.The Sunset watch’s case is machined from 316L stainless steel with a nickel-plated brass dial that boasts a ceramic coating for extra strength and protection. This ceramic coating also provides the central navy color and the fringe orange, red, and yellow bands circumscribing the face. On the back, a sapphire case affords a clear view of the movement and other mechanisms.What’s under the hood is the same as the Rally: a hand-wound Swiss Sellita SW 210 movement and a 42-hour power reserve.See ItIf these are a too pricey for you, take a look at the best watches under $500 for more wallet-friendly options.

We source the highest quality components available and use parts that are made in the U.S.A. wherever possible. Every watch is designed and prototyped in-house, where we also do all our own polishing, finishing and engraving. Finally, we assemble and test each watch to ensure we’re bringing you a great finished product that we’re proud to stand behind.”Three years after its founding, Vero is finally hitting its stride with the release of two 36 mm watches: the 36 Hand Wound Rally and the 36 Hand Wound Sunset. Both are beautiful with a punchy, unique look and styling that is at once both retro and modern. They also price in reasonably at just over $1,000.Take a closer look at Vero Watches’ two new timepieces below.Vero 36 Hand Wound Rally – $1,080 1 of 2 12 Best Seiko Watches for Men, From Flashy to Functional 1 of 2 Next Editors’ Recommendations The Best Documentaries on Netflix Right Now last_img read more

New Shipping Giant Enters the Scene

However, China believes that this very trend will drive market consolidation through mergers and acquisitions that would strengthen the companies’ competitive edge.China Cosco Shipping will have a fleet of 832 ships valued at USD 21.9 billion, becoming a major rival to Maersk, MOL any NYK Line. Capacity-wise, it will be the world’s largest dry bulk and tanker owner, fourth on global scale with respect to its container fleet.The corporation said it would focus on “6 + 1” clusters, those being shipping, logistics, finance, equipment manufacturing, shipping services, socialized industry and the Internet related activities and business innovation.The establishment of the new shipping giant comes amid Alphaliner’s announcement on the talks between French container shipping major CMA CGM and its Chinese counterpart China COSCO to set up a new carrier partnership.As disclosed, the duo is also seeking to also rope-in Evergreen and OOCL in a plan that could potentially split up three of today’s four main East-West alliances.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more
