The Davosa Trailmaster, the perfect wingman for adventure
September 15, 2021
When you're going to get your hands dirty, you need someone to have your back. And that's even more true if you're out in the wild, perhaps in the mountains, engaged in a challenging path through ridges, forests, and streams.
The tradition of the mechanical adventure watch dates back to the 1950s, with legions of enterprising explorers vying to be the first to conquer the world's highest peaks or to penetrate the wildest and most unexplored parts of the planet - the poles, the equator, the most secret, and inaccessible places. And the Davosa Trailmaster seems to have been created to accompany them on these exploits.
A 42 mm block of satin-finished stainless steel is the case that houses the movement, protected from shocks, stresses, and water, as if in a casket, with a resistance of 100 meters.
A beautiful and sturdy watch made to last, but also to impress with its retro design, which combines modern elements with vintage inspirations: the integrated mechanism of rotation of the inner ring, which has a counter function, which can be adjusted by a dedicated crown located at ten o'clock, or the baton indices joined by a time scale and highlighted by the play of contrasting hands under the sapphire crystal with anti-reflective treatment.
The Trailmaster offers date and day indications through a double window located next to the crown and a sapphire crystal case back through which you can admire the automatic ETA 2836-2 movement in action, beating at 28,800 bph and providing the timepiece with a 40-hour power reserve. It is enough to forget it on your nightstand for a day and a half while you rest between your adventures, or perhaps, prepare for new ones.
The Trailmaster is available in five dial color variations, ranging from deep blue to tree green, mountain brown to black, and deep-sea gray, almost hypnotic with its beautiful radiant effect, and matching strap in heavy-duty nylon, a high-strength synthetic material, with contrast stitching and logoed buckle.
It is a handsome timepiece that sits squarely between the realms of practicality and elegance, and has a unique casual dressy style that few other watches share. Definitely, a one of a kind experience that you have to try on your wrist to fully appreciate. For a similar experience, although more dressy, you can check the Military lineup of vintage-inspired timepieces, or the different but charming concept of the Newton Speedometer, with its jumping hours setup.
