Stainless steel, sapphire glass, zirconia and ETA – anyway it’s quite promising. Now it’s getting to the real thing!
A big sparkling watch appears out of the storage box in the colour variation “steel”. Already now the size and the weight of this watch are impressing you. The finishing appears at the first look of very good quality. Well, we want to open the watch !
The outer appearance
Sparkling, everything is sparkling ! The stainless steel bracelet as well as the case or the dial are gemmed with small sparkling stones (cubic diamonds). The day display is embbeded on the 12 with the logo André Belfort underneath it. The date display is on the 3 and the lettering “AUTOMATIC” on the 6. The central watch hands are kept in a soft green colour and gives a strong contrast to the silvery dial underneath it. It allows to read the time perfectly !
The design is different and doesn’t please everybody. Basically this watch is rather something for extravagant people. Furthermore the suitable clothes have to be found. Tastes are but quite personal.
The finishing on the outside is immaculate. Nothing bounces, every part fits wonderfully to the other one and scratches are not to be found. Of great quality ! Last but not least because the used materials whose properties and colours do harmonize wonderfully with each other ! The stainless steel is without nickel which means that it qualifies for allergic persons. Let’s now look inside of the Comète:
After having opened it, the trained eye catches sight the solid of the brand quality of ETA. The movement ETA 2834-2, as far as we can see, built in without change and knows how to convince of its long-life cycle. There is a reason why Switzerland is well known for its watches, especially for their movements. It doesn’t matter how critical you look at its inner life, we cannot find any weakness in this André Belfort watch.
André Belfort delivers with the Comète a design watch very well manufactured. During our tests we couldn’t possibly find any mistake. The design is uncompromisingly modern and surely not for every taste. Nevertheless whoever to whom it appeals, has found the perfect companion with the Comète of André Belfort and will have a lot of joy with it.
