As we begin 2022, we are taking a look back at the watches a few of our Momentum team members wore most in 2021.
Pascal, Operations: Aquamatic III Two-Tone
Dave, Watch Technician: VS-3
Austen, Digital Marketing: M20 GMT Diver
"When I first interviewed for Momentum, the M20 GMT Diver was just about to launch. Simon gave me a sneak peek and I knew I had to have it, regardless of how the interview went. Fast forward to now and it is the watch I wore most throughout 2021. It not only marks my beginnings at Momentum, but the amazing time I have had so far. Reliable Swiss movement, solid water-resistance, and a GMT function that gets me dreaming of travelling again soon."
Simon, CEO: Wayfinder GMT Black-Ion
"There are 3 key features that make it hard to take off my Wayfinder:
- Legibility: The simple dial design is uncluttered and so easy to read. The new black “velvet” dial finish, combined with the anti-reflective sapphire crystal boost the contrast and make the watch even easier to read at a glance.
- Luminous Performance: the multi-layer SuperLuminova luminous numbers and hands provide great lume, so I can still read the time easily in poor light, or even in pitch darkness, for several hours.
- Comfort: The solid titanium case is so light, I barely notice it on my wrist. The 40mm size is compact for my 7 ½” wrist, but looks just right, while the offset crown eliminates any “wrist-bite” when I exercise or work out.
Oh, and while this model looks great on our Italian leather BRAMANTE bands, I picked the red rubber GOMA strap to add a nice “pop” of color and match the red accents on the black-ion watch. The GOMA band is soft, flexible and completely waterproof – so I can shower and swim with my watch and not worry about the band."
Greg, Watch Technician: Atlas 44mm Lume Dial
"I wore the Atlas 44 lume dial sapphire on a deployant rubber band (band available soon). Great visibility and easy to read… Now I have the Wayfinder GMT on the same strap - again, great legibility day and night and I’m loving the size and light weight."
Chris, Operations Manager: Square 2 Chronograph
"When I choose the watch I wear, I want to be different. Nothing gaudy, just something cool that feels right on my wrist. The Square 2 Chrono fit the bill and then some for my watch of 2021 and was my daily driver."
Cahner, Social Media: Lugano
"The watch I wore most was the Lugano. I love the elegant design, and the leather strap ties the whole look together perfectly. I feel comfortable wearing it anywhere — whether it's on a hike or out to a nice dinner because I know the design is versatile and durable."
