GIVEAWAY: Wryst Airborne Watch

GIVEAWAY: Wryst Airborne Watch   watch giveaways

Limited to just 75 pieces total, the Wryst Airborne FW3 is one of those modern-looking sport watches designed with passion and destined to evoke pleasure (or the opposite) in the eye of the beholder. Modern timepiece design is all about polarization, when historically it was about conservatism. With a partially skeletonized DLC black coated 45mm wide steel case, the Airborne looks like nothing else on the market. The FW3 model comes with a green strap and dial accents. Inside the watch is a Swiss quartz chronograph movement. It is weird, it is avant garde, and it is something you'd only see in the watch industry. Price for the Wryst Airborne FW3 is $825, and you have a chance to win one this month on aBlogtoWatch.

my favorite sport watch: Tissot T-Touch 2 - I go for bright bands and color on the face if possible ie the numbers being outlined.  I like digital for quick glance or when calculating time.  Would love to sport this watch in the giveaway-being a limited numbered piece is an awesome plus for any watch! Thanks for offering us a chance to win, Jim

I like my sports watches to be a little wild and conservative . Depends on the watch For Example, I like the Tissot T-Race but I also like the traditional Rolex.

Although I prefer more conservative watches, I sometimes enjoy wildly designed but classy watches.

For sport watches depends a lot of the situation, if im going for surfing or hiking something like that, i prefer a wild designed watch

Depends on the day.  If I'm kite surfing, I want something that is wild and radical, like this Airborne.  However If i'm on the golf course or tennis courts something a little more conservative like my yachtmaster or submariner.

I would wear this airborne watch on my next airborne jump! Flying in style.

I would wear this riding my neon green ninja bike as my mullet gracefully tickled the air. No but seriously, I would be happy to win...as would my mullet.

I like wildly designed watches, like the HYT H2. Something that doesn't look like any watch from any other brand. I'd say the FW3 lives up to that!

A bit wild for me... but I have to say, if I won it I'd wear it.  It is quite cool looking!

Sport watches - YEA!

Love them wildly ;-)

Wanna know why... - sport watches are about... well... sports ;-) They are for people of action, for the bold ones, for those who are not afraid to make a stand! Wryst Airborne Watch is GREAT - audaciously designed with great color strap - it looks and feels wonderful!

Conservative or contemporary. tasteful or wild?  Neither!  It's innovation through-and-through - whether innate, explicit, obvious, hidden or subtle - which horological aficionados actually care about, so long as it combines aesthetic appeal with engineering excellence, I'd venture there'll be an informed customer somewhere. 

As for actual examples, I'd go for something akin to this Jaeger LeCoultre Master Compressor, given a free choice:

http://www.ablogtowatch.com/sihh-2009-jaeger-lecoultre-master-compressor-diving-navy-seals-watch-collection/

purely on simplicity and engineering excellence; or, if I wanted to wear something a little more traditional but still 'left-of-centre' and with a bespoke ébauche, then I'd go for FP Journe's Centigraphe:

http://ablogtowatch.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/02/FP-Journe-Centigraphe-S-1.jpg

Then there's the ubiquitous Valjoux 7750-equipped piece, in another example of classic design - the IWC Portuguese:

http://ablogtowatch.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/04/IWC-Portuguese-Classic-IW390405.jpg

versus Alain Silberstein's Gallic cheekiness:

http://ablogtowatch.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/03/Alain-Silberstein-iKrono-1.jpg

Given one of his designs was one of the very first outlandish but 'proper' watches I ever saw, I have a long, unassuaged, soft-spot for them, despite their unquestionable quirkiness.  And so on to the re-invented 'granddaddy' of them all:

http://www.ablogtowatch.com/omega-speedmaster-co-axial-chronograph-watch-review/

especially as it's another Omega timepiece that gets me close to owning and wearing a design by George Daniels (one can never own too many Co-Axials, IMHO).  Thankfully, this one lets you see the movement.  But, let's not forget the one chrono I own already which is, quite simply, an absolute icon of the sports chrono (so why no images on ABlogToWatch!!!?):

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/20084691/Zenith%20El%20Primero%20Moonphase%20Chronograph%20on%20Steel%20Bracelet%2002-0240-410-9.jpg

There's not really that much to say - just look at it!  Timeless.

I'm not really a fan of Breitlings or Tags - the 'traditional' sports watch - I think both brands were heavily devalued and their intellectual capital undermined somewhat with me-too derivatives, ill-conceived designs, and mass- and/or series-produced items (in the same way a Rolex Daytona has entered the public psyche as rather too 'commonplace' for a luxury item) and, I believe, many of their products simply became a combination of either ugly, boring or overly busy and ergonomically flawed.  However, you cannot fail but to be impressed with this as an example of simultaneously inventive and classy sports-watch design from the Heuer stable:

http://ablogtowatch.wpengine.netdna-cdn.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/TAG-Heuer-MikrotourbillonS-black-Background.jpg

The Wryst reminds me of a Nooka I own - something that took a while to get used to but which I now enjoy wearing.  Nevertheless, if I had to choose one, it would probably be the Zenith El Primero moonphase chrono - it's the one I wear most ... or I would if it wasn't in dire need of a service!  

:-(  

PS  Any UK takers?  Any informed advice on quality/VFM service agents? - Unfortunately, LVMH let me down with the last Zenith they had in for a service by scratching it heavily and denying all responsibility, despite dated photos to the contrary!

Love both conservative and unusual watches.  Examples would be Omega vs. Invicta.  But Wryst has a nice unique design that's definitely not conservative!

I prefer more conservatively designed sports watches. The new Bremont Supermarine S2000 is just beautiful and classy. I am also partial to the sportier styles from Linde Werdelin, such as the Spidolite. I would like to go jogging with the Wryst Airbourne.

I like "mainstream" sport watch like those from Omega Seamaster. AP ROO and Rolex Submariner. Richard Mille is in my opinion king of sport watches. Wryst Airborne Watch's tonneau case is interestingly designed. Just hope it had an automatic movement.

So I waited until the end of the month because this watch looked too wild for me. Honestly, I prefer more sedate looking sports watches (e.g. B&R Hydromax), with my wilder ones being more-functional GPS/heart rate monitor ones that I don't show in public. But I clicked on the Wryst website and when I saw this watch with a black strap, my jaw dropped --- oh-my-god it's gorgeous!  I love the technical details on this watch, like the unique hollowed-out case (reminds me of the exposed skeleton of the Richard Mille RM001), and also appreciate the things that make this likely to be actually used - a shatterproof crystal and the tough DLC coating.

The only sport watch i have is G-shock which is abit boring.

As for a man, i always like my sport watch to be wild and exotic design. but so far there ain't any design like Wryst Airborne FW3. Simply awesome !!!.

Keep it up Wryst!!!

I like conservative watches mostly such as the Rolex submariner or Sinn model 103 though my taste has been expanding of lately.

I would love to win this watch.  I normally go for more conventional style sport watches like the Suuto M4 or the Casio Pathfinder, but I do love the design on this watch.

I generally go for more conservative chronograph watches, but adding more interest in style and color would be welcome, too.  My current favorite is the Jorg Gray 6500, but I like the humor of the Cadence 4:20 chrono as well.

I like my sport watches conservative in design and flashy in color. Right now my favorite is a Vostok Reef Diver with an orange bezel and a luminous face. Its built like a tank and the one I have is remarkably accurate. My next favorite will be my Orange Watch Company Milsub that is on order with a Soprod movement. This watch would be a departure for me, but it is definitely has a killer look to it.

May be it is me.  But a conservative can last longer if I will choose a sport watch.  Wryst Airborne FW3 to me is leaning toward to conservative side which is my preference.  Thanks.

I generally go for more conservative sport watches. Omega's Planet Ocean is one of my favorites.

My husband's sport watch is rather conservative (Swiss Army). He likes it, but I know he would think it fun to wear a wilder style sometimes. The geometric shapes in the watch itself are unusual compared to what I see most of the time. The bright green is eye-catching. It goes with the bright colors popular in running shoes these days.

A sport watch that is wild but not hugely thick.  The Tag Heuer Monaco 24 is one I'm liking right at the moment.

When I say this watch, I mean the Wrist Airborne. I'm really liking those green accents and the funky case design.
