Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage

When it comes to unique contemporary watches, a timepiece which is able to combine an aesthetically stunning and functional case, dial and strap design, the use of innovative case materials alongside all the benefits of a rugged Swiss design movement, the Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro Collection are genuinely in a class of its own. The Manometro Watch collection very quickly made a name for itself with a beautifully simple case, dial and strap combination which at the same time was able to achieve a unique minimalist post-industrial aesthetic and the often absent quality of perfectly legible dial face and hour markers, married to the indisputable quality (and water resistance) of Swiss movement and manufacture. The Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage Watch, first released in 2017, takes the Mazzuoli Watches Manometro concept another step forward, with a unique matte camouflage case and dial design, its use of materials and pigments, and even a canvas effect leather strap. There is no doubt that this combination of Italian design excellence with a Switzerland made automatic movement from the Tavarnelle, Val di Pesa, Florence, Italy based watchmaker Giuliano Mazzuoli, will be for some the best twist yet in the Manometro watch story.

The Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage watch is in fact not one but four watches: four different paired color camouflage effects for the case, dial and the calfskin leather strap stamped with a canvas imprint, offering buyers a choice of preferred camouflage coloring. Among many unique elements that the Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage watch offers (and it should be stated now that the application of the camouflage design is actually unique to every single watch), the fact that the camouflage design extends to the case itself and not merely the dial, perhaps a little counter-intuitively, makes this watch stand out from the crowd of other camouflage watches. It is the clever use of case, dial and strap materials for the Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage series of watches which permits this.

Giuliano Mazzuoli Watch is, the shape of course, no stranger to the use of specialist case materials for his watches, with the family of Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro watches already boasting models featuring case material as diverse as cement (Manometro Cemento), marble (Manometro Carrara) and carbon fiber (Manometro Carbonio) among others. The Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage takes a shape base design inherited from the Manometro Carrara collection, but the special coating of the case base is made with a mixture of colored powders and composite materials,  the specific mix of natural (i.e. not synthetic) inorganic pigments, stone and mineral powders that form the composite producing each of the four different camouflage colors for the case. Each of the four different color dials (blue, green, black, sand) is then paired with a corresponding, but unique, camouflage design case. The utilization of the colored powders and composite case materials for has the effect of producing a watch case for the Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage that has a superbly textural finish, speckled with what looks like tiny air pockets.

The four different color dials paired with their respective camouflage case colors also necessitates a range of colors for the leather watch strap, and what a strap the Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage is equipped with. It really is a testament to how seriously Giuliano Mazzuoli considers every element of the watch design, and here too the watch receives another unique feature, what might be called a ‘faux canvas’ leather strap, and yes, you did read that correctly. The ‘faux canvas’ is achieved by treated the calfskin leather strap with a stamped canvas print, Giuliano Mazzuoli neatly subverting normality once again. The wonderfully soft calfskin leather is necessarily available in each of the four camouflage colorways required, green, black, sand and blue, continuing the theme of paired camouflage effects and rendering a stunning overall visual effect. As with other watches in the Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro family, the calfskin leather strap is secured to the colored powders tinted composite watch case with the use of two hinged wedges by pairs of screw fasteners, meaning the Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage, although a large diameter watch at some 48mm, never feels overly large on the wrist, the lug less design of the case and use of the wedges allowing the paired camouflage effects calfskin leather strap to neatly follow the form of the wearer’s wrist. The strap is finished with a stainless steel pin buckle adorned, as is the signature Manometro crown, with the Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Firenze logo.

The Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage, as mentioned previously, is powered by an ultra-reliable, self-winding automatic Switzerland manufacture ETA movement, that offers a power reserve of some 40 hours, with time only, hours, minutes and seconds hands. In a contrasting engineering style bright stainless steel color, these offer a massively functional and beautifully legible time display against the matched camouflage matte dial and neatly stepped three dimensional cuboid minute indexes. As you would expect of the Giuliano Mazzuoli’s obsession with legibility, a wonderfully clear anti-reflective coated convex domed sapphire crystal stretches across the full width of the case diameter.

The Giuliano Mazzuoli Watches Manometro Camouflage, in a unique range of camouflage colored stone and mineral powders pigmented composite case materials, offers another example of Giuliano Mazzuoli Watch Firenze’s contemporary design excellence, ‘urban chic’, and a great addition to the Giuliano Mazzuoli Manometro family of watches. Behind the aesthetics sit the absolute dependability of a 40-hour power reserve self-winding automatic ETA Switzerland manufacture movement, which together as a package provides some 50m of water resistance.  A truly unique timepiece in all senses of the word, at a price that is as arresting as the combined visual effect of the camouflage case, dial and faux canvas, calfskin leather strap.
