It is always a pleasure for us to introduce you to new brands, especially when they make such outstanding looking timepieces! Distinct in its design Dutch based Pellikaan Timing adopts a very simple approach to watch making: high quality, clean lines and easy reading. All this comes together to create stunning looking pieces with a distinct vintage appeal.
Designed and built in the Netherlands, the flagship watch is the PT2. Basic in its design and function this is watch that has been created to last. Crafted from stainless steel, the 45mm case houses a highly reliable manual wound Swiss Made ETA 6498-1 movement, the same movement which has featured in several other high-grade watches from likes of Omega and Panerai, among others.
The attractive dial ensures that reading the time is not only an easy but also enjoyable experience and the use of Breguet style hands really add to the vintage appeal. Scratch-free sapphire crystals feature on both the front and back of the watch and allow for a great view of the movement in soignée finishing (Côtes de Genève and blued screws). It’s a remarkably simple yet eye catching design.
The standard black or brown leather strap in Panerai style is quite thick (5mm) but at the same time supple and attaches with a heavy clasp which is screwed to the strap. There is also the option of purchasing an additional alligator leather strap, which is of the highest quality and will provide that something extra special you are looking for. As a nice touch, each watch comes with a complimentary black NATO strap.
Available to order on-line on the Pellikaan Timing website, the PT2 from Pellikaan Timing is available with a black or brown leather strap and is very well priced at €790.00 (or approximately US$1,150). The optional Alligator leather strap will cost you an additional €190.00 (or approximately US$275).
The Final Word
It’s quite refreshing sometimes to come across a completely new brand of watch, especially one that is producing watches outside of Switzerland. Whilst it is good to see that the company has chosen to use a well respected Swiss movement to power their timepieces, it is even more positive to see that the design is refreshingly Dutch.
So if you’re looking for a high quality timepiece with ageless appeal that is not going to break your budget, why not check out Pellikaan Timing? I promise you won’t regret it.
