Oval watches like the Very Zino are becoming en vogue, which I appreciate. I find that the horizontally oblong shape is more flattering on one's wrist than the traditionally popular tonneau shape which is vertically oblong. Sharing from the Bell & Ross Geneva and Vintage line of watches, the small seconds dial and date window overlap with in symmetrically centered orientation. The dial enjoys a fair amount of texturing, and skeleton cut hands are sharp looking (and probably feeling). I particularly like the crafted lugs and how the Italian made (black or brown) French calf leather strap is cut to shape the case and lugs smoothly. Inside the Davidoff Very Zino watches are automatic mechanical movements, likely ETA 2895-2 movements as are used in the existing Very Zino watches. The 18k rose gold cases are 44m wide in size. The new Very Zino watches are noticeably more refined in design than those presented last year and are a welcome addition to Davidoff's growing watch collection.
