Kazimon is a trademark of Kazim Kenzo and all its watches are made in limited editions and in Germany.
The Kazimon Drei chronograph is one of the newest creations from this German brand. In German, drei mean “three” and though it is not Kazimon’s third watch (the company has four current collections) the name refers to the number of subdials, which is the standard number of subdials that all 12 hour chronographs should have.
Aesthetically this watch combines both modern and retro styles. The chronograph hands are retro, similar to the ones seen in watches from the 1940’s. The case is 41mm which isn’t too big nor too small and therefore more traditional than many of today’s oversized men’s watches.
This watch measures 17mm high, which is higher than most and this is due to the Swiss made ETA Valjoux 7750 movement inside. Like most Kazimon watches, the Drei is a diver’s watch and this is seen in the details such as lugs that curve downward so as not to feel awkward or interfere. The bracelet too is wide, measuring 20mm and has a retro look to it as well – metal with portholes.
The modern features of this watch as seen in the fact that it is made from titanium which makes it weigh less (also good for diving) and even though the caseback is not open, there is a Cotes de Geneve polishing and blue screws. The dial itself is quite modern and is made up of black, white and red. The Kazimon “X” logo is present at the center and gives off a cool look. Although the Drei is a diver’s watch there is a tachymeter scale on the bezel, as well as aviator style hands. Both the hour markers and seconds hands are modern looking.
One thing to remember is that although this is a diving watch, it’s not for deep diving since its water resistant only to 100 meters.
