A “Coke” to match my “Pepsi”….

Finally….after a few long years of waiting, Davosa completed the trifecta of sport timepieces in my collection. The “Batman, Pepsi and now Coke”. Yesterday, I received my new 16157109 Ternos "Coke" edition with the Pentalink bracelet. The watch arrived by DHL Express and made the journey across the pond in perfect condition. I would say Davosa packs their timepieces to survive anything the box may encounter along the way. Besides the waterproof plastic covering, the watch was “triple boxed” and padded. The black lacquered box is especially nice.

I was very surprised to see a supplemental box taped to the package. I opened this box first and wow. Inside was a Davosa rubber band strap 16955555 made exclusively for the Ternos. Now that was an unexpected and expensive gift. Also included was a Davosa branded watch tool for removing and sizing watch straps and bracelets. Finally, I opened the box and was not disappointed.

Let me add, I am very critical and expect perfection with my watch purchases. I enjoy the Swiss made Boutique style brands. I have Steinhart and Squale. But this is my 4th Davosa and there is a reason why. Yes, Davosa does cost more than the competitors. The value that Ternos offers for the price point is by far the best value for your money compared to the other brands offering similar executions.

My new Ternos “Coke” edition has a 42mm case size and the weight on the wrist is perfect for me. It just feels good and makes me smile when I look at it. The dial, Mercedes hands and red GMT pointer are perfect. The smooth sweep of the second hand is mesmerizing. The DAV 3032 automatic movement is based on one of watchmaking's most popular movements, the Swiss-made ETA 2893, a 28,800 BPH high-beat movement that offers 38 hours of power reserve. I really love the cyclops and ceramic bezel in the iconic black /red color scheme with a black dial is stunning. The Pentalink bracelet is very comfortable, adds a touch of elegance and simple to size with the screw in links. The satin finish on the stainless steel is perfect for me. There is just enough high polish to catch a reflection or two of light.

I wound the watch, set the time and allowed my Ternos to sit for 24 hours. It is keeping perfect time. I sized the bracelet to fit my 185mm wrist perfectly using the super nice screw in links and micro adjustments on the clasp.

In conclusion, another “home run” by Davosa. Now…..all I need to complete my small Ternos collection is a 42mm in the faded blue dial. I know you guys currently offer a 40mm…..but that is just too small. Please re-issue with the 42mm!
