BAUSELE Pilot Automatic
What does Australia Day mean to you? To me it's a day to celebrate living in an amazing country with the best family and friends anyone can hope for. It's a day to be thankful for our country and be mindful of our past while striving for a reconciled future. It's a day of hope.
So what watch do I write about on Australia day? Who is innovative and creative and embodys the Australian Spirit? The answer BAUSELE. The watch THE BAUSELE PILOT AUTOMATIC.
BAUSELE is the first Swiss made, Australian designed watch company and let's be honest, that's awesome. They are paving the way for innovation in the Australian watch industry. When unboxing this beauty I was a little taken aback. The watch is inspired by the watches of aviation pilots with the 12 on the face situated at the traditional 2 position, in theory this gives the advantage of telling the time without having to move your wrist. This is something I had to trial as it seems askew when you first put it on. When driving and typing and anytime that my hands are in front of me the 12 does actually sit at the top and the time is easy to read. When just glancing to tell the time I got confused, it takes a little to get used too. You will either love it or hate it, I don't think there is a middle ground.
Apart from the dial what stands out to me is the hollow crown. Distinctive to BAUSELE, each one contains unique elements of Australia including Red Earth from the Outback, Sand from the Beach or Opal from the Land. With sapphire crystal glass a Swiss movement and symbolic design elements like the second hand shaped to evoke the Sydney Tower, this watch gives you the chance to take that little bit of Australia everywhere you go. If you are looking for that distinctive piece of Australiana in your collection then look at BAUSELE. RRP starts at $1290. Visit http://www.bausele.com/ for stockists.
