The watches come in a nice signed leather box. It’s quite convenient if you go on a weekend and want to bring another watch. There’s also a slot for other bracelets or a watch tool.

Besides the additional pusher on the Triple Calendar, there’s no significant difference between the cases of both tested versions. The case alternates between polished and brushed finishes, offering nice light reflections and feeling really qualitative. The crowns are signed and the bezel is really smooth to handle, another sign of a well made timepiece. The bezel insert in made of colored brushed aluminium. If you look a bit closer at it you’ll see that the brush pattern is made of radial lines, just like the dial itself.


The large chapter ring can be actioned with the crown located at 4′. Having it in a different color from the dial/bezel adds a nice depth and contrast, making it very pleasant to look at, and manipulating it is really smooooth 🙂
The dial itself is absolutely gorgeous ! It has a lot of relief with its 3D radial lines and the applied indices and subdials (for the Triple Calendar). The whole thing is behind a domed sapphire glass with a beautiful and efficient AR coating, offering blue reflections when you play a bit with the light.

The stainless steel bracelet is also taking part of this successful timepiece. It’s very comfortable and beautiful. It’s actually the first thing people can see at your wrist, and I have already had people asking me about my watch because they had their attention caught by the light reflections on the bracelet 🙂

Regarding the movements, we have on one side the Japanese Miyota 9122 and on the other side the Swisstech S24-45. I must admit I have not been able to find much information on the Swisstech engine from the Tourer GMT. It’s apparently derived from the ETA 2893. In any case both are great movements, and I wouldn’t expect Kyle from choosing anything but good quality components.

There’s not much more to add in conclusion of this review. Both pieces are really well made and a great bang for your buck. As usual with Straton, you can go with confidence.

There are only a few pieces left, and pre-orders will be closing by the end of February :

For those wondering why I haven’t wrote anything negative in this review, it’s just because there’s nothing negative to say 🙂
