Van Speyk watches at BensonTrade

Posted on 2 March 2021 at 4:36 PM

Have you ever heard of the Dutch watch brand Van Speyk? This brand has been producing very beautiful watches for over 10 years. If you haven't heard of this watch brand yet, then it's time to read this blog article.

Van Speyk Dutch Pilot watch

Van Speyk owes its name to Lieutenant Jan Carel van Speyk. This legendary hero of Dutch history was born in 1802 and after following training as a tailor, unexpectedly ends up at sea as a lieutenant. The ship he sailed was raided by Antwerp insurgents and instead of surrendering, Van Speyk decides to blow up the ship and with it himself. Since then he has been seen as a national hero. By choosing the name of the brand, the Speyk watch brand shows that it is proud of the Netherlands and the Dutch identity. Van Speyk originated as a partnership between entrepreneurs. They wanted to market new watches that could add something to the existing watches.

With a Van Speyk watch you automatically choose a good quality watch that is equipped with an automatic movement or a quartz movement. With a watch with an automatic movement, you have a watch that best symbolizes the old craft of watchmaking. Van Speyk is able to emphasize this once again by using a glass bottom for various watch models. With a quartz watch you have a watch that works on battery, with the advantage that it is more resistant to shocks and bumps and is more accurate than an automatic watch. So it has both its advantages and it just depends on what you prefer. Whichever variant you choose, with a Van Speyk watch you always go for quality and buy your watch for an attractive price. After all, Van Speyk is not only a high-quality watch brand, but also very affordable.

We distinguish different series of watches in the van Speyk collection. The Dutch Diver series was introduced in 2015. This series of watches is entirely designed and manufactured in the Netherlands. The watches from the Dutch Diver series are equipped with an automatic movement of the brand Miyota (Citizen). The Dutch Diver watches are also equipped with a stainless steel strap, which gives it a tough look. Watches are available with different colored dials, such as black, white, brown, blue and gray. Also characteristic are the well-arranged dials with a clear display. Only high-quality materials have been chosen, such as sapphire glass and stainless steel. The watches are waterproof up to 200 meters and have several nice extra functionalities. Examples include a rotating bezel, screw-down crown and luminous indicators. The watches in the Van Speyk Dutch Diver series close with a folding clasp.

A second beautiful series from the Van Speyk collection is the Holland series. These watches have a more classic look than the watches from the Dutch Diver series. Characteristic are the beautiful leather black and brown watch straps and the stylish dials, often in black or white. The watches also have a Roman index and a beautiful glass back. The latter gives you the opportunity to see your watch at work. We also see nice extra functions such as date display, a day/night indicator and a moon phase. The eye for detail is also striking, just look at the blue screws used for the timepiece, the relief accent on the timepiece and the van Speyk logo on the rotor, strap and watch case. The watches from the Van Speyk Holland series close with a buckle clasp and are waterproof up to 50 meters.

The third series of Van Speyk watches that we want to bring to the attention is the Dutch Pilot series. This series consists of traditional designs. With the Dutch Pilot series, Van Speyk combines a stylish look with the features of an original pilot's watch. These watches have a Swiss quartz movement from the Ronda brand, which stands for absolute quality. Characteristic of these watches is also the good readability, with a watch case of 45 mm. Again, only high-quality materials have been chosen, such as stainless steel and strong sapphire glass. Furthermore, the watches are waterproof up to 100 meters and close with a buckle clasp. This series of watches also has nice extras to offer. For example, we mention Superluminova, a stopwatch function, luminous indicators and a nice chronograph function. Here too you will find the Van Speyk logo on the watch strap and the back of the watch case.

In short, with a Van Speyk watch you are assured of a beautiful and high-quality watch that will certainly attract attention. The eye for detail, beautiful extras and accents make these watches unique in their kind. Add to that the attractive prices and this makes Speyk an interesting brand for every watch enthusiast. Moreover, Van Speyk knows how to appeal to a wide audience due to the variation in appearance, properties and timepieces of the different watch series.

MeisterSinger was founded in 2001 by Manfred Brassler. He had set himself the goal of designing a watch that was unique and would serve as an alternative to the regular wristwatches that were already on the market. It had to be a watch with its own look. A genuine MeisterSinger watch is therefore immediately recognizable and has a clear identity of its own. This is because Brassler opted at the time to design watches with which you could easily read the time with a single hand. Because the dial has only one hand, every MeisterSinger watch is recognizable from thousands.

This way of displaying time is not new, but it is very interesting. This method is moreover practical and clear, and the classic meters and measuring instruments still have it today. Brassler was able to redesign this time display with a collection of beautiful watches. The MeisterSinger collection therefore consists of modern watches with a nod to the past. In addition to the one-hand display, a watch from MeisterSinger is characterized by the unique index and the strongly curved glass. Each MeisterSinger watch is therefore very unique. In addition, MeisterSinger is committed to the technology of the watches. At MeisterSinger people go for absolute technical sophistication, so that you can benefit from the latest techniques with a MeisterSinger watch.

For example, beautiful and special (crocodile) leather, stainless steel and extremely strong sapphire glass are used. With a watch from MeisterSinger you do not only buy a watch for the present, but also for the future. A watch from MeisterSinger is timeless and can be combined with both a business and casual outfit and is therefore suitable for different types of men.

The compact watch case has a diameter of 43 mm and a thickness of 10 mm and is made of stainless steel. The watch is also fitted with a beautiful 18 kt gold bezel, which further emphasizes the luxury and chic appearance of the watch. The heart of the MeisterSinger Circularis CC908LG watch is formed by a Swiss made automatic movement (MSA01), which guarantees you a durable, reliable and accurate watch.

Meccaniche Nereide 4.0 watches

Posted on 12 February 2021 at 9:01 AM

This blog article is recommended for fans of the Rolex look. Because there is a watch brand that produces watches that have the same sporty character and beautiful looks of the well-known Swiss watch brand Rolex, but are priced a lot cheaper. Despite the lower price, these watches offer excellent features. The watch brand we are talking about is Meccaniche Veneziane.

Meccaniche Veneziane Nereide watch

This brand was once born in the bell tower of Venice, where the brothers Alessandro and Alberto felt their passion for how the clock works. This beautiful clock tower fascinated them to such an extent that they decided to set up their own watch brand, bringing the Venetian watch tradition back to the 21st century. It is also special that the logo of Meccaniche Veneziane refers to another special building, the Saint Mark watch tower. The cross of this tower represents the symbol of timekeeping in Venice and is reflected in the brand logo of the Meccaniche Veneziane watches.

In the collection of Meccaniche Veneziane we find different series of watches. Meccaniche Veneziane has watches for both men and women. Previously, all watches from Meccaniche Veneziane were equipped with Swiss made movements. Nowadays Meccaniche Veneziane also offers watches with Japanese Seiko movements, which makes the prices of these watches extra attractive. We find these watches within the Meccaniche Veneziane Nereide 4.0 series.

These watches are known for the Rolex appearance they convey. The vibrant use of color for the watches is striking, these colors are reflected in the dials, in the stitching on the leather watch straps and in some cases on the rotating bezel. The eye for detail is characteristic of every Meccaniche Veneziane watch. The beautiful designs are sporty and look like a real eye-catcher on the wrist. In addition to the models with the beautiful leather straps, there are also models with a sturdy stainless steel strap. In addition, there are models with calmer color schemes, for the enthusiast who sees more in a more modest model. In addition, there are models available with a rose colored case, which together with the different colors chosen for these models gives an extra luxurious and chic look.
When we take a closer look at the Meccaniche Veneziane collection, the handmade leather watch straps stand out. These watch straps are made of leather that comes from Veneto and Tuscany. For the manufacture of these beautiful watch straps, the expertise of local craftsmen who know their trade is used.

The look of these watches lends itself to being able to combine them with various clothing styles. This means that the watches will appeal to a wide audience, especially because they are so affordable. The Meccaniche Veneziane Nereide 4.0 watches have various beautiful features, also in the technical field. For example, we call it BGW9 Swiss Superluminova that gives light in the dark. The rotating BK 7 Crystal bezel is also worth mentioning, as is the very strong anti-reflective sapphire glass. Other great features of the Meccaniche Veneziane Nereide 4.0 watches are a date display, second hand, luminous indicators and a screw-down crown. The watches are also waterproof up to 200 meters. You will find a special engraving on the back of these watches.

Meccaniche Veneziane is a brand that cares about handicrafts and old crafts. This can of course be seen in the watches themselves and the beautiful leather straps. But even the packaging of the watches is a piece of craftsmanship. The watches are delivered in special beautiful watch boxes.

In short, you will find the Rolex look at Meccaniche Veneziane, but for a more attractive price. The watches in the Nereide 4.0 series are extra affordable with the automatic Seiko movements, while Meccaniche Veneziane is already known for their affordable quality. Everything at Meccaniche Veneziane revolves around traditional handicrafts, from the watches themselves, to the watch strap and watch box.

The Benson Black Series watch winders can best be described as an extremely luxurious collection of watch winders with the most modern technology and all the functionalities that a watch enthusiast desires. The watch winders offer all functions to provide any automatic watch, regardless of brand or model, with energy safely and quickly. This ensures that your automatic watches never stop, which leads to wear and tear and discomfort. Because who wants to have to reset an automatic watch every day in terms of time and date and open the vulnerable crown? The Benson Black Series are distinguished by excellent quality and useful functions, because you can individually set each watch to its needs. Each rotor is individually adjustable in terms of direction of rotation and number of revolutions per day (TPD: turns per day). This allows you to easily provide your collection of automatic watches from, for example, Breitling, Rolex, Omega, Patek or IWC with energy. You do not have to worry whether a certain automatic watch can be wound in this new generation of watch winders, because the properties of the Benson Black Series watch winders allow you to wind every watch safely and without any problems.

This means you are assured of a unique watch winder. The new blue Limited Edition models have a very modern and stylish look. The new walnut Limited Edition watch winders are more classic and have a modest character. Benson has chosen these two distinct colors to offer the customer even more choice. One watch enthusiast would like a modern watch winder that is a real "eye-catcher", while the other watch enthusiast would prefer a more classic and modest watch winder. A beautiful Benson Black Series watch winder is now available for both. The Limited Edition watch winders from Benson have sold out very quickly in previous years, we expect the same for this new generation. Where many brands increase their prices every year, Benson has not adjusted its price level for more than 3 years. This means that these new Limited Edition watch winders are priced the same as the previous generation. A good example of a nice watch winder from these new Limited Edition models is the Benson Black Series 6.16.WA watch winder

The watch winder itself is made of wood so that it absorbs sound. At the back of the watch winder is a USB connection so you can charge your mobile phone, for example. Inside the watch winder, the safety of your watches has been thought of. The entire inside is provided with a soft fabric so that there is no risk of damage. The watch holders are adjustable and therefore suitable for large and small watches, men's and women's watches. The watch holders are clicked into the watch winder so that the watch can never fall out. This, together with the soft fabric and lockable door, ensure that the automatic watches are optimally protected against external influences.
