This new offering by Wenger is a fine blend of modern design and vintage feel at a very reasonable price, making it an ideal companion for any city-goer that appreciates a reliable, and sensible wristwatch.

Wenger wristwatches have written a spanning 120 years. The brand has been in operation since 1893, and throughout its history, it has managed to produce honest and versatile timepieces for the “everyman”.

And here we have the new Urban Metropolitan collection, composed of watches offering a well-balanced combination retro-style and contemporary elements. This particular range is a nod to contemporary urban society that is increasingly focused on less frills and more authenticity. It features four new 41 mm case versions, available in either in 316L stainless steel or with a black PVD finish.

The cases are contrasted with a creamy dial – which creates the familiar vintage look - or the black option, which lends a more distinctively modern touch. Completing the minimalistic and finely-balanced look are a variety of straps. The one that particularly stands out is the NATO leather strap, complementing the numerals, hour-markers, and luminescent hands, with a retro look that is available in colours like chestnut brown, black or beige.

To emphasize the vintage feel of the collection, large Arabic numerals for the main hours and hour-markers stand out from the dial in either black, white or beige tones. As we expect from the usually reliable Wenger timepieces, their luminescence ensures perfect readability in the dark. This new model also displays the date at the 3 o’clock position.

The Urban Metropolitan collection is also enhanced by the intrinsic quality of the Swiss Made label, ensuring that you have a reliable companion that is ready for any occasion. The Swiss Made quartz movement – which boasts water resistance up to 100 metres – and the three-year guarantee ensure the peace of mind we have come to expect with Wenger. And with a retail price ranging from CHF 158 to CHF 195, that kind of peace of mind is quite affordable, too.
