Feynman One Eclipse

Most of the watches we review on AWDO are dive watches, or at least they’re meant to be considered as tool watches. It’s not by choice, but those just seem to please most people. From time to time we have the chance to see something different, so today I’m glad to show you the Feynman One, a beautiful dress watch with a unique design! It comes in multiple color ways, the ‘One’ I’m showing you today is the blue variant and is called Eclipse.

The case

The Feynman One has a case width of 39mm, a lug to lug distance of /+-46mm and a thickness of 12.5mm, making it one of the smallest watches I have been able to review. No worries about the size, dress watches are generally smaller. The case alternates polished and brushed finishes, all made of stainless steel. The quality seems very good, and after a feed weeks I don’t see any hairline on the polished parts.

Something I really like about this case is the texture all around it, perfectly matching with the coin edge crown. That’s not something common, we’ll see later how unique it is 🙂

Both sides of the case are equipped with sapphire crystals, the front one being slightly domed. I must admit that my first impression was that the watch was a bit too thick, but this was quickly forgotten and the depth of that dial is a really pleasure for my eyes! 

The bluetiful dial

It’s not often that I’m that much enthusiastic about a watch, but this dial really is a piece of art! From the multiple levels and textures to the different materials, and the sunburst blue combined with a blue(ish) AR coating, it’s definitely a one-of-a-kind. I love to discuss about watches with my family or with friends, but that’s not really their ‘thing’. Most of the time they just don’t care. With this one it was completely different and they all noticed how beautiful and eye-candy it is 🙂 

A matching strap

The color of the dial matches perfectly with the strap. The lizard leather was a bit stiff at first, but after a few days it wasn’t a problem anymore. I’m not sure it will last very long though, it’s already showing some signs of wear on the longer part, where the buckle comes. Only time will tell I guess… 

The movement

The Feynman One comes with a Top Grade Swiss made ETA 7001. It’s decorated and you’ll be delighted to look at it thanks to the transparent caseback. 

My impressions on this Feynman One Eclipse surely is very good. It’s very well made and a real eye-catching piece with its own identity. At 855€ it might be a bit expensive, but at that price you’ll have something really different and worth the shot!
