The colour indigo conveys integrity, deep sincerity, wisdom and great devotion to justice. This is manifested in C2's dial as a representation of one who is committed to living life by these ideals. Indigo also appears beautifully in nature as the colour with the second lowest wavelength within the visible spectrum of the rainbow.
C2 automatic timepieces is for someone who would like to be a little under the radar, while rocking a consistent persona and style that appeals to many. The subdued Brushed Blue dial is understated, but under the right lighting it transforms into a vibrant, brilliant blue! In normal lighting conditions, the dial exhibits a deep navy blue colour and is reliable and versatile in many situations. C2 fittingly flows with the crowd and yet rises above it at the right moments with a strong character.
The C2's unique dial is deliciously layered with a cutting-edge 2-plate dial construction with CNC milled indices. Coupled with the multi-directional brushed surface, the Brushed Blue shines its brilliance in all directions and is perfect for watch photography.
The brushed case with impeccable finishing and vintage inspired shape bring about robustness and timeless aesthetics that elevates the coolness of C2. The fine brushing catches the light at different angles and enhances the wearer’s experience to a satisfying level.
C2 can be paired with a vintage-styled, 4mm thick-cut wrinkled, vegetable tanned, Italian deep brown leather strap. The uncompromising quality of the strap and tang buckle is evident in your hands, while the vintage-styled, deep brown enhances the brushed blue dial perfectly.
Alternatively, C2 can be paired with the surgical-grade solid, five-link, finely brushed stainless steel 316L bracelet with a high quality, milled solid butterfly clasp. Honestly, you cannot go wrong with this bracelet. It is as competent in a fine dining setting as it is during a tennis game, while maintaining a cool character throughout.

Why I Love It:
The Type C has decent specifications, and a well-conceived aesthetic that displays a maturity rarely seen in debut collections. Ultimately, it’s well put together, and remains fairly affordable. Singapore may not be short of watch microbrands, but GANE is a notable addition.
