London based micro-watch brand Fifty Eight watches presents their first collection. Christened ‘Geneva Tribute’, this limited series classic wristwatches combine Swiss Made precision, inspiring design and sophistication.
Geneva has been renowned for its prestigious watchmaking traditions. Celebrating the long-established luxury watch industry of this magnificent city, the young brand has offering a number of contemporary mechanical timepieces.
The design codes of the Geneva Tribute Collection include the iconic Côtes de Genève decorations, a charming back engraving – St Pierre Cathedral, signature sector dial, and a logo that symbolizes the undisputed reign of Swiss watchmaking. All ‘Fifty Eight’ watches are manufactured in Switzerland, in a very limited series – 158 individually numbered units/model, producing five colour variations.
For each Geneva Tribute watch, the brand has selected Sellita SW200, a reliable Swiss-Made self-winding movement with a power reserve of 38 hours. Made of 316L stainless steel, the case measures 41mm diameter – a perfect proportion for a contemporary dress watch. The case is 10.2mm thick and lug-to-lug width is 47mm. The flat case back with curved lugs offers comfortable wear on most wrists.
The watch is topped with an AR coated sapphire crystal glass. The eye-catching sector dial features a matte finished outer-track with applied, high-polished hour indexes raised from the texture of the dial and a center section with Côtes de Genève decoration.
The dial boasts properly sized and proportioned faceted Alpha hour and minute hands as well as a second hand with a distinct diamond-shaped counterweight. This dial lay-out ensures excellent readability.
On 05th May 2021, the brand launched a Kickstarter campaign to raise funds for this project. The campaign will be active until 03 June 2021. During this online crowd funding promotion, Fifty Eight is offering special Kickstarter prices for the backers. Pledges start at £460 (US$ 640).
