Globenfeld Men's Rose Gold Automatic Watch Review

The face of a men's watch, on a bed of lavender.
We have reviewed a Globenfeld sports watch before and the husband was very pleased with it, so when I was offered this limited edition, rose gold automatic watch to review, I was thrilled. It looked beautiful in the picture and I was really looking forward to receiving it. I was not disappointed, it is truly stunning. I have never seen anything quite like it, as it doesn't have a battery, but also doesn't need winding. It works through a complicated network of 110 tiny moving parts, some of which can be seen through the windows, which give the watch its unique look and old-style charm. It's a real homage to traditional watch makers of old and has a great deal of appeal as a gift purchase, or treat for yourself.

The Globenfeld Rose Gold Automatic Watch arrived perfectly packaged in the usual grey Globenfeld packaging. The box is suitably masculine in colour and design, whilst retaining an air of quality that makes it such an ideal gift. It is well protected for posting and arrived in immaculate condition.

The strap is made from high grade leather, in Tobacco Brown and features a Centurion White Croxley Textured Dial. The polished round bevel contains 20 jewelled movements, indicating the quality and sophistication of the piece. The dial is a good size; not too big, but not too small for a male wrist either, and the strap is more than adequate for a larger man. I was enormously impressed with the build quality, this watch feels robust and well made, making it great value at the current reduced price of £79.99.

An automatic watch works without the need for batteries and is sometimes called self-winding. This means the watch winds itself using a weight inside the watch that oscillates to put tension on the mainspring through the random motion of the watch wearer's arm. It's fascinating to watch and is a real talking point of this design. Even more interesting, you can actually observe the intricate movement through the glass back, providing hours of entertainment for the scientifically minded!

What I love most about the watch is that it is clearly high quality and well made. This, coupled with the ommission of batteries and winding, means the watch should be able to be worn and enjoyed for a very long time. I feel this represents excellent value for money and it's definitely something I would consider buying as a gift in the future.
