The Vireo Medium Quartz and the Vireo Medium Quartz Chronograph watches are now more suitable for the slimmer wrists thanks to the reduced diameter of the case. A mere five millimetres, but they make a huge difference in this case: the new Vireo Medium Quartz has a case diameter of 36 mm instead of the 41 mm of the predecessor version. It makes a more delicate, elegant and lightweight impression, which is much more in keeping with slimmer wrists.
In all other respects, the Vireo Medium Quartz and the Vireo Medium Quartz Chronograph are true Vireos with their striking inner ring, satined brush finish, and hand-applied, Super-LumiNova-coated indices and hands. They make a powerful and fresh statement on the wrist, as the name already implies.
This makes them elegant companions on professional and social occasions, as well as reliable partners for sports pursuits. Little can damage the scratch- resistant, curved sapphire crystal. The back of the stainless steel case is firmly screwed and the polished, satined stainless steel strap with its folding clasp is extremely robust. Moreover, the Vireo Medium Quartz series offers all the accustomed functionalities of the Vireo family.
The three-hand Vireo Medium Quartz is 10.4 mm in height and contains a reliable Ronda 505 Swiss quality movement. Its inner ring only carries the figures for the quarter hours and quarter minutes display. Time is also readable in 24-hour mode on an additional inner ring on the dial. The crown with the typical DAVOSA star sits at the classic 3 o’clock position.
Inside the Vireo Medium Quartz Chronograph with its metal strap and case height of 10.8 mm beats a proven Ronda 5030 Swiss Quartz movement. The crown and pushers can be deployed to set the totalizers, as well as the hour, minute and second hands. The inner ring provides orientation for the chronograph display.
Both models are available with white, blue or black dials. Thanks to a Super-LumiNova coating and water resistance of 5 ATM, the Vireo Medium Quartz and Vireo Medium Quartz Chronograph can be worn day and night to a depth of 50 meters under water. Either way, the Vireo family is understandably proud of the Vireo Medium Quartz and the Vireo Medium Quartz Chronograph, retailing at 298 € and 398 € for the metal bracelet versions or 248 € and 348 € for the leather strap versions respectively.
