Readers of Perpetuelle know that I rarely cover the sub-$1,000 watch market, save for some interesting mechanicals or pieces that catch my eye. This new Technomarine “Night Vision” piece from Technomarine caught my eye. Speaking of Technomarine — wayback when, the brand was very considered fashionable and trendy, but that’s the problems with trends — they fade away. This is more or less what happened to Technomarine. But starting last year, the brand started to be reinvented and reinvigorated with a more sustainable product lineup (this started with Vincent Perriard and some other industry veterans — Perriard has since left the brand to start his own, more interesting venture HYT Watch).
Anyway, at Baselworld 2012 (March is right around the corner!) Technomarine will be showing off its new “Night Vision” watches. I find the the Night Vision watch to have a cool look to it, worthy of wrists ranging from armchair watch enthusiasts to more higher-end watch buyers who want something fun to wear. In addition to the green color set you see here, the watch will also come in white, blue, black and orange.
