UNION GLASHÜTTE – VIRO DATE
Introducing the Union Glashütte Viro Date
The Saxony brand that’s been part of the Swatch Group since 2000 may be low-key but it’s made a big impact. With over 120 years behind it and a “Made in Germany” flagbearer, Union Glashütte stands for classic, well-made and affordable watches. A great example is the Viro collection whose new models this year, Viro Date, are powered by a self-winding calibre and come in two steel case sizes (41 and 34mm).
The large model has a delicately sandblasted silver dial whose hour rim has black decal markers and gold indices. The hours, minutes and seconds in the centre are tracked by three baton-shape rose gold PVD-coated hands whilst the date display stands at 6.
The small model has the same layout and its white mother-of-pearl dial features the time functions with silver hands and markers.
Price: 1100-1230 CHF
