RED8 Watches Are Here
New from Christian Bedat, formerly of watch maker Bedat & Co, comes RED8. The new watch concept that shakes things up a bit in the luxury watch world. The watch is a true sign of the times. Better priced that most luxury watches, it also revels in the fact that it is manufactured in Asia (designed "in the world"), and plays with these concepts in an interesting manner. This is while many other brands hide the fact that they have extensive manufacturing roots in Asia.
There are enough colors and styles of the watch to suit mother, father, and child - along with various "messages" around the bezel. The pictured four words being but one of a few options. Visit their site and suggest your own four word combo for the dial and you could win a free watch. Currently there are at least 11 styles of the RED8 watch to choose from.
At about 42mm wide (including the large red crown) the size is good enough for a man, and sized for the woman who likes a large watch. Funny how in black the timepiece appears very masculine, and then with pink tones the same design suddenly has a feminine quality to it. The strap is rubber and goes through the back of the case like a NATO strap. The case is in steel, and available in various PVD applied tones. Inside the watches uses an Epson I-Matic quartz movement with a rotor that charges a battery, so that it does not ever need a battery change. Many of you will know this same movement as a Seiko Kinetic.
Prices for the RED8 watch are $880 without shipping, you can see a full review with video of the RED8 watch here.
