Andersmann Chronograph ANN0633

Although diving watches are among the most popular, it is rare to find chronographs with specifications allowing diving. The watch I will review today, the Andersmann Chronograph ANN0633, is not only waterproof to 300m, but it also has extremely interesting features, at a very attractive price point.

The case

Even if I’ve had a few watches with titanium cases, it always surprises me how light they are, especially considering the 44mm width of this one. The Andersmann ANN0633 has a multilayer, cushion-shaped case with a bead blasted finish titanium case. The brand name is engraved on the left side, while the crown and the 2 large pushers are located on the right side.

The ANN0633 is a dive watch, and as such features a 300WR, a screwed-in crown and thick sapphire crystals on both the back and the top. The double curved sapphire glass on the top benefits from an efficient anti-reflective coating on the internal side, allowing for a perfect legibility.

The dial

The black-grained texture of the sandwich dial is really beautiful. It plays nicely with the light while remaining perfectly legible, thanks to luminous hands and hour markers.

The subdials are located at 6-9-12 while the date sits at 3 o’clock, next to the brand logo and some text. A tachymeter scale is painted on the chapter ring. I have always liked sandwich construction dials, and this one has been particularly well executed.

The movement

The movement is an off-the-shelf Swiss ETA A07.211 with engraved logo on the rotor. It’s similar to the renown 7750 but it was made for wider cases. The customized rotor can be seen thanks to a slightly tinted transparent caseback.

The strap

The watch comes with 2 straps: a brown leather and a FKM rubber with a titanium buckle. As far as I’m concerned I prefer the rubber strap, which I find more comfortable and more suitable for a toolwatch. It feels solid and is not a dust magnet, which isn’t always the case for that kind of strap.

On the wrist

The watch is really light and gets easily forgotten on the wrist, and the curved lugs make it also very comfy. The only thing worth mentioning is the noise the rotor makes when moving, which (just like any 7750) is a bit loud. I personaly don’t mind, it feels more “alive” 🙂

Conclusion

Andersmann makes affordable yet qualitative watches with Swiss movements. Their chronograph makes no exception, it’s accurate, reliable and comfortable. Considering its price of 1580$, I think it’s an excellent value for the money and I would definitely recommend it to anyone looking for a large chronograph with divewatch specs.
