Red & Black German Racing Watch: Best Hued Temption Formula Rally Chronograph Available

Red & Black German Racing Watch: Best Hued Temption Formula Rally Chronograph Available   sales auctions Red & Black German Racing Watch: Best Hued Temption Formula Rally Chronograph Available   sales auctions I admit to loving this watch. It just exudes cool to me, but in a really understated way. This to me is a non-flamboyant, flamboyant watch. I've mentioned Temption Formula (and Classic) Rally watches before, but in my opinion this version is the nicest. Other models have yellow or blue trim coloring as opposed to the red in this watch. To me, the red contrasts the best with the black PVD case and dial, not to mention being the most powerful looking.

Temption is a powerhouse little German watch maker that churns out a scant 700 watches a year on average. Why the limited production? Because that is about all one can produce and maintain high levels of quality and consistency. The president of the company is involved in most every watch, ensuring a high level of detail and craftsmanship. I own a different Temption watch (the Temption CGK203,which I happen to be wearing right now), and can easily attest to the joy of ownership. Unlike many German watches, Temption timepieces are not just made well, but embody a significant degree of style.

Going back to this specific Formula Rally Chronograph, you have a lot beyond the looks. Inside is a decorated and adjusted ETA Valjoux 7750 automatic mechanical movement. You can see the machined patterns on the movement through the caseback sapphire crystal window. The strap is perforated calf leather in traditional racing style with matched red stitching. Case size is 43mm, and you also have a metal folding clasp on the leather strap. One of my favorite touches is the complimented red gem setting in the crowns. These are called cabochons.

See the auction page on eBay for more details. Price is great, at $1,600-$1,700. Retail goes for about a thousands dollars more than that. It comes in the really nice stained black wooden box that Temption is also known for. I've never been let down by Temption watches, especially from a style perspective. The goal of these watches is to excel in function, and they do so admirably. You have to agree that this is a nice looking, minimalist inspired, showy watch. A nice, and as you can tell here, non-paradoxical dichotomy.

I haven't personally seen it, but I know watches like it and they are well done. I have two Temption watches myself.
