Sjöö Sandström Royal Capital pink gold
Manufacturing clocks and watches has a long and proud standing in Sweden. In the mid 19th century Viktor Kullberg gained worldwide reputation for his pocket watches and naval chronometers. Continuing on this tradition nowadays, Sjöö Sandström combines cutting-edge knowhow with the kind of luxury that defines Sweden and Scandinavia. The new Sjöö Sandström Royal Capital comes with an added date and is available in two different executions of 18k pink gold. Being as rare as nature itself this model is limited to only 30 pieces in each execution.
The design of this watch is great. I remember seeing this watch in the metal for the first time during Baselworld last year. Having mostly sporty watches on my wirst myself, the Royal Capital caught my attention right away. The design is powerful as it’s very clean and straight forward. But when you have a better look you will notice various details which make it more interesting along the way. The design of the hands to name one and the hour markers that raise towards the bezel like a wedge shape. It’s a very well executed design from a small brand that is ever expanding it’s footsteps.
Powered by the Vaucher calibre 5400 you get the best of both worlds Swiss and Swedish watchmaking and design. Vaucher is one of the world’s most renowned creators of exclusive movements and their movements power many of the known brands. At only 2.9 mm thickness the caliber 5400 is an extra-thin movement that smoothly combines finesse and robustness. Combined with a micro rotor this movement is a reliable engine with a high level of finishing.
Exclusive Swedish watchmaking
The strap closes with a rose gold folding buckle which is especially made for best possible wrist comfort. The quick adjustment feature, allows you to easily change the length of the leather band. The overal sophisticated design and quality makes a great example of Swedish luxury and true craftsmanship.
Overal the Sjöö Sandström Royal Capital pink gold makes a great dress watch that simply looks stunning. The price level of just under 17K Euro makes it an affordable choice for those who are interested in buying something out of the ordinary. Perhaps it would have even been better looking without the date but who knows they will make one at some point.
