Mercedes-Benz Design philosophy on the wrist
Like the vehicles, all the models - from the classic, elegant, and basic through to sporty - are characterized by the synthesis of functionality and emotion.
The new 2019/2020 wristwatch Collection from Mercedes-Benz reflects the design philosophy of "Sensual Purity" in all its facets. The hallmark brand identity arises from the harmony of sensuous freeform surfaces and strictly geometrical formed elements. This lends to high-quality watches with certain distinctiveness. As is always the case at Mercedes-Benz, only the highest-quality materials and sophisticated technology with the best workmanship are employed.
The flagship of the new Design Watch Collection from Mercedes-Benz is the new Automatic-Chronograph watch for men, which is as sporty as it is functional. Its affinity to Motorsport is clear from a first glance at the solid black stainless steel housing and the PVD coating. The dial-in black carbon fibre with a CD facet in the counter gauges impresses with steel-coloured, appliqué indices, a superimposed bezel with blue highlights in the top-right quarter and also the Mercedes star in the three o'clock position. The tips of the steel-coloured hour and minute hands and of the blue second hand are refined with the luminous substance Super-LumiNova and enable them to be read off even in the dark. A further highlight is the arched sapphire crystal, which is anti-reflective on both sides, on the top faces of the case, through which the dial can be seen in sharp detail at all times. A sapphire crystal back, through which the Swiss automatic movement ETA 7750 is visible, and a high-quality black leather strap with a folding clasp round off the unique look of this chronograph watch.
The Sport Fashion M3 Chronograph watch for men has a fashionably dynamic appearance. The black stainless steel housing with PVD coating around the black dial beneath the mineral crystal which is anti-reflective on both sides is held by a black nylon strap with a coloured strip in blue woven into the centre. This coordinates with the blue second hand which, like the hour and minute hand, can also be seen at night thanks to Super-LumiNova. Silver-coloured indices and the Mercedes star round off the minimised, masculine design.
The women's Sport Fashion M3 wristwatch combines the stainless steel housing with a feminine rosé-gold-coloured PVD coating, white leather strap and a white ceramic bezel. On the dial, also in white, there are highlights in the form of rosé-gold-coloured appliqué sections and hands, Swarovski crystals on the hour indices and the Mercedes star at the twelve o'clock position. Here, the Super-LumiNova luminous substance and mineral crystal which is anti-reflective on both sides, facilitate optimum readability as well.
With the two new models Classic Automatic and Chronograph Classic Rally, Mercedes-Benz has created watches that have what it takes to become design classics. The USP of the Classic Automatic is the housing in bronze interplayed with the stainless steel base and arched sapphire crystal which is anti-reflective on both sides. The natural material bronze may change in colour slightly over the course of time, lending the watch its own individual patina. A rich, warm brown was chosen for the dial with its sunray polish. The bronze-coloured hands, dials and indices appliquéd to it and also the historic Mercedes-Benz logo at the 12 o'clock position create an elegant, harmonious overall impression. The watch is given a sporty touch by the perforated brown leather strap with a pin buckle made from bronze.
