Design and technic:

It feels comfortable on the arm. This is the first thing that attractes attention to us, when we removed the “Le Capitaine” out of it’s attractive box and put it on. The watch has a goodly weight and also its case aperture of 38 mm gives the “Le Capitaine” a suitable being. The high quality stainless steel strap is with a Fliplock buckle to lock. Also its modern and balanced design pleases, which gives the clock its own charakter. The time indicator of André Belfort looks assiduously  manufactured. Our test model shows optical no scarcities or scratches. In daily use, the automatic clock unit is accurate and authentic.
We cannot report of any gait deviations. Setting and serving the watch with the protected crown is unproblematic. Feeling of deadener and crown convinces us. For comfort in daily use cares the water resistance of 5 bar.

Result:
For a really goodly price you get, with the Le capitaine by André Belfort, a qualitative massive watch which combines functionality and design.
