Suunto Essential Watch Collection
Last updated on November 15th, 2015 at 12:07 pm
Anything born in Finland is built to survive. Home to long winters and dark nights, it was Finland where Tuomas Vohlonen invented the mass production method for liquid-filled compasses in 1936. This adventurous nature has defined the country since, so it’s no surprise that watchmakers Suunto call the country home.
Hand built in Finland by the pioneer of outdoor precision instruments, Suunto honours their adventurous heritage. Their Essential Collection is a masterclass in precision, simplicity and functionality fit for the greatest explorers.
The Suunto Essential case is made of high-quality stainless steel, with a brushed or matt finish. It’s tough enough to survive time itself. Three times harder than mineral crystal, the sapphire crystal glass is shatterproof, scratch and abrasion resistant. It’s known for its transparent properties, ensuring a clear, legible display.
Responsibly sourced Italian and Brazilian leathers provide the softest and purest comfort on the wrist. The result is a statement of discerning style. The unique weave of Suunto’s textile straps ensure they are ready for repeated exposure to life’s harshest elements. Each watch also comes with an explorer’s notebook, so you can log your life’s adventures.
Key features in the Essential range include a Barometric Altimeter so you can establish your current elevation; a Barometer so you can forecast sudden alterations in the weather by keeping a close eye on the air pressure; and a Compass to navigate and pinpoint locations to safely find your way through wilderness and whiteout conditions.
Sophisticated and rough, the Suunto Essential Collection adheres to the traditions of Finnish design. Its clean and minimalist lines blend seamlessly with the premium detailing and we think they’re a perfect example of practicality meeting flawless Scandinavian design.
Prices range between £495-£545 and you can check out the full range at the Suunto Website.
