Akribos watches review 2015

 

Design – 5/5
Build Quality – 3/5
Functionality – 3/5
Value for money- 4/5
Overall Score – 3.8/ 5

Akribos watches are produced by an American company which was initially inspired by Stuhrling watches. However in the past few years they seem to have evolved and they have been trying to build their own unique style by distancing themselves from their original inspiration.  Akribos watches build quality and functionality are of moderate standard. However the design of the watches are exceptional. These watches portray a unique but lavishing look at a more affordable price. Its design is definitely its most captivating attribute as they are elegantly crafted.

In this Akribos watch review I will show you the top 3 Akribos watches on the market.

Akribos XXIV Men’s AK618RG

Akribos XXIV Men's AK618RG Essential Rose-tone Stainless Steel Brown Leather Strap Watch

Its all about the simple things, the first watch in my akribos watch review is Akribos XXIV Men’s AK618RG. This watch is a classical piece where every detail is kept to a minimum. There isn’t anything I would add or omit from this watch as I find it perfect as it is. The round stainless steel case with a diameter of 44 millimeters and thickness of 11 millimeters is so simple and yet very elegant with a rose tone color that adds a special touch of luxury. The dial is grey which helps to accentuate the rose markings and the three hands. On the three o’clock position there is a discreet display that indicates the date. Akribos made an extra effort to increase the value of this watch by adding a genuine calfskin leather strap with a simple buckle clasp. This watch is water resistant for up to 99 feet which means that it can be exposed to rain of splashes of water but nothing to dense. I hope that with this first akribos xxiv watch review you are slowly starting to get an idea of the type of watches Akribos has to offer to those who are new to the brand.


Akribos XXIV Men’s AKR469RG

Akribos XXIV Men's AKR469RG Conqueror Multifunction Stainless Steel Swiss Quartz Strap Watch

The second watch in my akribos watches review that I would like you to take a look at is Akribos XXIV Men’s AKR469RG watch. This flamboyant watch seems like a transition between the timeless design and a step towards something more contemporary. The case is bigger than I would have expected to see on this type of watch but it goes well with the overall design. It has a diameter of 50 millimeters and it is 14 millimeters thick. The predominant color of the watch is the black color although it has quite a few goldish elements. The dial has three sub-dials which give the impression that the watch has chronograph features, but the sub-dials in fact indicate the day of the week, the date and the GMT function. The dial is covered by a shatter-resistant krysterna crystal that protects the watch from potential scratches. The band is made of genuine calfskin featuring a buckle clasp. This watch is water resistant for up to 330 feet which is enough to swim and snorkel without worrying that you might damage the watch. How bold are you?


Akribos XXIV Men’s AK622SS

Akribos XXIV Men's AK622SS Grandiose Stainless Steel Bracelet Watch

The final choice for this akribos watches review is Akribos XXIV Men’s AK622SS. This slick watch is my favourite of the three but each to their own.With an over 80% discount from its original price in Amazon i personally believe it is the best value for its money . The entire watch is made of stainless steel and most details just blend into the watch. The diameter of the case is 47 millimeters whereas the thickness is only 11 millimeters. The dial is decorated with three sub-dials which resemble a watch with chronograph features, however they don’t have the functions a chronograph sub-dials would have. Between the four and five o’clock position there is a small display that indicates the date. The dial window is made of mineral crystal, which is one the most common materials used to protect the mechanism of the not so expensive watches so handle with care, like everything. The band is made in the form of a bracelet and has a fold over clasp with double push button for extra safety. This watch is water resistant for up to 165 feet which enables normal daily use and you can be comfortable around splashes of water but it is not suitable for extremewater activities. With the third watch I have completed my akribos watches review and I have shown you which Akribos watches I fancy the most.

All three akribos watch reviews capture the most important features that these watches have and give you an idea of their design and functionality. Akribos watches are not in the league of Rolex, Hublot or Omega.However they do portray designs which are controversially better than some high end brands. They are a affordable-mens-swiss-watches-under-500 that most people would find appealing.
