Before you buy your first car, you must have considered what color car you want to buy. I am no exception. I usually find black, white, red, and blue to look pretty, but when you think about it, my favorite car is indeed green, especially the classic British green. But if you really want to buy a car with such an overly individual color, I probably won't buy it. Therefore, a British green racing watch is the range I can consider buying!
When I saw the Vintage Rally Healey limited edition chronograph, I thought, that's it. From the appearance of the watch, we can see that this is a typical racing watch, and it is true. Since 2004, Frederique Constant has sponsored antique car races around the world and often serves as the official timekeeper for famous races. In 2018, Frederique Constant once again served as the official gold sponsor of the European Healey Club and supported the fifth European Healey Meeting held in the Black Forest, Germany. This Frederique Constant Vintage Rally Healey limited chronograph is a watch specially launched for this event. First of all, the color of the watch that attracts me the most is of course the typical British green, with a dark green dial and strap that looks retro and youthful, modern and classic. This shade of green is neither too frivolous nor too dull, reminiscent of those green antique cars. I want to make a special note here. Tudor is also a very recommended watch. In fact, the price of Vintage Rally Healey or tudor is not high, so you can consider buying their replica watches. You can choose to match the replica watches of swiss eta 7750 movement version, 7750 movement can realize the chronograph function. (Their price is usually 300-400 usd, such as tudor replica watches), believe me no one will doubt that they are fake!
The dial design of the Vintage Rally Healey Chronograph is very beautiful. The green dial is paired with two big-eyed sub-dials. The sub-dial is white. The white contrasts sharply with green and is easy to read. It is also a good harmony color. Make the watch color more harmonious visually. The dial is divided into three levels, the center green dial, white minute scale ring and green 60-second chronograph ring, 6 o'clock and 12 o'clock use large white Arabic numerals. The hour markers and hands are coated with Luminova fluorescent material, so the time can be read clearly even in dark environments. The red central chronograph hands and the hands of the two sub-dials play a very good embellishment, which is easy to read and adds vitality to the watch. The two sub-dials are easily reminiscent of the dashboard of a racing car, the 30-minute counter at 3 o'clock and the small seconds at 9 o'clock.
The watch is made of stainless steel and the case diameter is 42 mm. This size can be said to be a very classic sports watch size, which can fit almost all men's wrists. The stainless steel case has been polished attentively, and the texture is very advanced. In addition, the design of the dial is very simple, except for the brand name below 12 o'clock, only the Healey logo is decorated above the 6 o'clock position. The watch is also equipped with a curved sapphire crystal mirror, which makes the watch more retro.
Frederique Constant has always positioned itself as "touchable luxury", with several in-house-made movements, and often very affordable, this green antique racing chronograph is no exception. The watch is equipped with Frederique Constant's own FC-397 self-winding movement, containing 25 jewels, 28,800 vibrations per hour (4 Hz), with central hours, minutes, small seconds, and chronograph functions, and can provide 46 hours of power reserve. The watch adopts a back-through design and has a water resistance of 50 meters. Through the sapphire crystal case back, we can see the exquisite and luxurious rose gold-plated automatic rotor and the modified movement. As a racing-themed watch, the Frederique Constant Vintage Rally Healey Limited Chronograph is paired with a perforated racing leather strap. The green perforated racing leather strap has white stitching to echo the dial color.
