We at Hodinkee really like hearing from our audience, we depend on you to definitely help shape the content material we place up, just after all, this website is about you. In the center of January we obtained an e-mail from the reader through our Ideas sort that said we just had to examine out some replica watches that glided by the identify of Enzo Mechana. This reader praised the brand’s craftsmanship, customer service, discussion board participation, and over all else, philosophy. We have been intrigued.

We achieved out to manufacturer patriarch, founder, and designer, Enzo Mechana himself. While in the number of e-mails we exchanged, it had been distinct that Enzo was a uniquely passionate citizen on the environment, a person who had the temperament and experience to encourage not just a brand name, but a group (he was traveling via motorcycle in Laos once we spoke).

We had asked if there was a check product that would be sent to us below in Ny, or if there was a retail spot that experienced a observe we could spend a handful of several hours with to get an notion of what his nouveau-diver replica watches ended up like. This was unattainable, however. Each individual check out is designed in really restricted quantities and they have been all sold out, so Enzo put us in contact that has a regional owner who was gracious enough to allow us borrow his Enzo Mechana EMV for your couple of times.

Record & Inspiration

Enzo Mechana has been a part in the look at industry for over 25 years, working to get a handful of manufacturers as well as doing some independent contracts from time to time. He had always dreamt of creating the ultimate divers view, endearingly inspired because of the action heros of his youth, both real and imaginary. We are talking about the masculine stars with the 1960s, the likes of Jacques Cousteau and James Bond. If corporate sponsorships didn’t exist, what is kind of view they would wear while on adventures during the deep sea They would wear an EMV.

The replica watch

The EMV and its similarly-sized brother, the EM001, is an impressive hunk of metal, the likes of which we’ve never seen. It is the replica watch’s size and weight that you notice first. In fact, it is not possible not to. When first handling the EMV, we have been wearing our test LUM-TEC M5, a check out that we experienced compared in weight to an automatic Omega Speedmaster. The Enzo dwarfed the weight from the M5, to a point that we didn’t understand initially. Why was it so heavy and was it necessary

Our first assumption to the questions previously mentioned had been “it’s so heavy just to make a point, and no it had been not necessary”. We were wrong. The more we read about the Enzo Mechana manufacturer and what this enjoy represents, it became apparent that this observe is not meant to be necessarily wearable day to day, it had been meant to be the most durably-constructed view ever designed. In fact, Enzo Mechana describes the EMV as “literally bomb proof, designed to withstand a lifetime of extreme use”. The concept is to remove all connotations of status and jewelry from the check out, and replace it with industrial efficiency and high design more in line that has a machine (in particular a tank) than a diamond bracelet. The EMV is a tool, simply set.

With so many diving replica watches marketed towards bankers, consultants, and CEOs, we take a certain pride in saying this check out is nothing if not a true diver’s observe. It is created of thick surgical grade 316L stainless steel, the sapphire crystal is domed and itself over 5mm thick. It is not complicated, in fact it features just a date window. It does however feature a helium-escape valve and luminescent markers, both unwavering requirements of real divers. The standard strap on the EMV is a stainless steel bracelet that is actually screwed to the check out case, but both leather and rubber is also available.

So just how hardcore of a hardcore diving observe is the EMV Well, it’s certified to 1000M, or 3,300ft, but our guess is it’d be good for an additional league or two. How does this compare with the more mainstream diving replica watches It easily trumps the Rolex Submariner (good to 100M), is matched by Blancpain’s just released uber-diving replica watch the 500 Fathoms, and is usurped only by Rolex’s insanely monstrous and monumentally expensive SeaDweller Deep-Sea (retail just under $10,000).

What Do We Think

It is simply unattainable to find a more capable and well-constructed diving enjoy anywhere inside the globe, at any price point. We mean that inside the most sincere sense, all hyperbole removed. The EMV retails for around $1500 but you can likely find them slightly used on Enzo’s own forum (available in this article) for the couple hundred less. Remember, we weren’t even able to have one to take a look at, so trying to find a new one for sale will likely be difficult.

Does the EMV make sense as a daily wearer That depends, it is large, exceptionally heavy, and not the most handsome check out we’ve seen. In fact, while enjoy shopping using a friend (and AP Royal Oak wearer), we were both asked by strangers to see our wrists. The strangers (who were completely unabreast to the price and social stigma attached with the Royal Oak) were being shocked by the weight and magnitude of both, but clearly preferred the looks of your Royal Oak. They were being not alone, we showed the Enzo Mechana to countless friends, both replica watch-fans and complete novices, and not many were being impressed with the looks with the EMV. Very handful of said they would be willing to part with more than $1000 for one, although that number slightly increased once we told them just how impressive of a tool this check out is and how magnanimous its founder is.

That said, Enzo doesn’t need to the globe to like the looks of it replica watches. The manufacturer has a highly active and clearly passionate fanbase on their community web forum. Enzo himself is a regular participant and has been teasing users with images of his new design, the GMT, for which there is already a waiting list. Also, from the renderings alone, the GMT promises to be a far more attractive enjoy from the simple aesthetics standpoint, and the much of your Hodinkee inner-circle is eagerly awaiting a real-life image.

Enzo Mechana does not pay a cent for advertising, and so they offer no swag for press. In fact, at the bottom of every e mail Enzo himself sends, it reads:

MANIFESTO

Enzo Mechana promises to avoid pseudo celebrity endorsements and the “swag for publicity” culture that has infiltrated the luxury goods market. We believe from the quality and value of our replica watches, and desire customers who understand and appreciate their authenticity.

Needless to say, Enzo Mechana is a manufacturer with admirable principles. Couple that with the most rugged and well engineered case we’ve seen in years and you have a truly unique manufacturer. We can see why Enzo has so many dedicated followers, and we are sure the GMT will only further this start-up’s presence.

This is a real man’s enjoy, and we are sure there are thousands of real men out there looking for something that can handle their daily adventures. While it may not be as refined as some with the pieces we are used to reviewing, we would be in danger of missing the point completely if we held that against it. Enzo Mechana makes the best diving check out we’ve tested, simple as that.
