I consider that the F-80 collection debuted in about 2008. It contains a Swiss ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic based chronograph model, and a similar model that has a GMT module over a 7750 (there is also a quartz ETA chronograph version as properly). That is that GMT mannequin, and you may see the standard 7750 with the addition of just a little blue GMT hand. It is definitely a Soprod motion they name the “753-24h.” The dials are literally slightly properly designed and legible. The face is textured with horizontal black sections while the fingers and hour markers are quite simple to see. Observe that the GMT dial is completed in black and white. This is for if you need to sync the GMT hand to the usual time for it to operate as a day/night indicator. Cool proper?
Assembly with Timex they shared with me that the design of the F-80 was some who has designed a number of other properly-recognized watches, however for the life of me I forget who he's. Maybe considered one of you'll be able to remind me, but once you be taught who it is you are like “ohhh, I see that.” I discovered this fact over two years in the past so please forgive me.
The case is 44mm wide in titanium and ceramic. Ceramic is used for the bezel, chronograph pushers, and the center links of the metallic bracelet. There can also be a rubber strap choice, and the high-end cautchouc (spelled a couple of methods) rubber is used. The case is water resistant to 100 meters and uses an AR coated sapphire crystal. General, most issues us watch snobs are on the lookout for are current here. I don’t really care if this watch has a Salvatore Ferragamo logo on it or not. It's nicely designed, uses good parts, and has a pleasant sporty character with a trace of colour (my fav). It may not be a watch I wish to put on every day, however I might gladly enjoy a Ferragamo F-80 in my assortment.
