From a watch enthusiast and recent Welder customer;
came across Welder Watches a while back and was intrigued by their
version of an Instrument Watch. Ya'll heard of U-Boat, right? The
Designer Italo Fontana is the designer and he recently put together a
'K' series for a new line called WELDER.
shipping box I pulled out a hard carrying case. A nice compact
composite case with the Welder Logo embossed right on it. The locks
looked nice and sturdy and there's a relieve knob for atmospheric
Pop Pop! I unclip the locks and and slowly opened the cover. There it
was. A massive square Intsrument watch in shiny brushed steel with
black face and white luminous numerals. I faintly heard a choir of
angels singing softly in the background as I gazed in awe at the K23.
Measuring at 45mm squared (55mm including the crown) the brushed
finished case and bezel really caught the light. Three chrono subdials
at the 6-9-12 position. Date window at 3. Dial styling is reminiscent
of U-Boat, big and bold.
If your into the hunky chunky industrial look, the K23 fits the bill to
the 'T'. It's sorta like the Schwarzenegger of the instrument watch
styling. Some initial impressions of the watch is that the edges and
corners may be a bit sharp and uncomfortable for the wrist. Far from
it. It is one of the more comfortable watches for my 7.25″ wrist. A
closer look will reveal the soft curvature of the case to conform to
your wrist AND that the corners are neither sharp and pointy to cause
any intrusion. All along the case is a beveled edge. However it does
appear to make for a formidable weapon if need be, me thinks. On all
four corners is a big Hex Head Cap Bolt. Dunno if this actually keeps
the watch together but they sure look industrial. Heavy Duty!!
As big as the watch may be I found it to be extremely comfortable.
Every once in awhile your pleasantly surprised when you looked down at
the "clock" strapped to your wrist. You forget you have such a
monstrous time piece on."
