Travel Back In Time: The Allemano Time DAY
The Allemano Time DAY is an iconic timepiece worth treasuring in every discerning collection.
"Wow, what a hidden gem". That is the exact single thought when we first came across Allemano, an independent watchmaker based in Turin, Italy and with history dating as far back as 1856. Founded by Giuseppe Allemano, the local factory originally operated in the field of heavy carpentry, manufacturing steam powered road rollers used in the construction of roads, and production lines later evolved towards making pressure gauges for the famed Fiat 501 Torpedo.
Fast-forward to more recent times, 2019 proved to be a watershed year for Allemano, with the launch of the Misuratori del Tempo collection, inspired by the century-old pressure gauge design. And such unique creation is forever epitomised in the Allemano DAY.
On the wrist, the Allemano DAY's 44mm lug-less case visually stands out. With a combination of sandblasted, brushed and polished finish, the stainless steel round case is water-resistant up to 50 meters, and is fitted with scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glasses on front and case back.
Design of the dial is faithful and consistent to Allemano's rich heritage. The combination of jet black dial along with rose gold markers and hands just works. Tuning fork shaped end of the minute hand is a nice touch to pay homage to Allemano's analogue gauges. All together, the Allemano DAY oozes old-world charm that is beautifully vintage.
Technically, the Allemano DAY is equipped with the reliable Sellita SW 330-1 automatic movement. More importantly, all Allemano watches are fully tested and certified in-house to ensure utmost precision.
