An element in its original state exhibits genuine strength. That is the reason behind C3's dial, where it is intentionally designed to be in its natural colour of steel. This portrays the unpretentious nature of C3 in its purest form.
What could be cooler and steelier than a brushed steel dial, on a steel case, mounted on a steel bracelet? C3 Steely Silver is the answer to that. The philosophy behind C3 is brushed steel all the way, with no compromises. It is perfect for someone with a steely persona, with a taste for adventure yet exuding a cool demeanour. The brushed, 3D silvery surface reflects light in indoor or outdoor situations and produces overtones that are perfect for photography enthusiasts.
As with the other Type C automatic timepieces, the C3's unique dial has a 3D layered effect with a cutting-edge 2-plate dial construction with CNC milled indices. With a multi-directional brushed surface, this concept is developed to maximize the 'steely flecto' of this steel watch in every direction for your enjoyment and admiration, and of course, for watch photography. Hence, the C3 is aptly named Steely Silver.
The brushed case with impeccable finishing and vintage inspired shape bring about robustness and timeless aesthetics that elevates the coolness of C3. The fine brushing catches the light at different angles and enhances the wearer’s experience to a satisfying level.
C3 can be paired with a vintage-styled, thick-cut wrinkled, vegetable tanned, Italian tan leather strap. The uncompromising quality of the strap and tang buckle is evident in your hands, while the vintage-styled, tan brown enhances the steely silver dial perfectly.
Alternatively, C3 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 well as in a nature hike while maintaining a cool character throughout.
