There is nothing really innovative about this watch aside from the new convoluted way it talks about having a power reserve indicator on the dial. High-end brand Antoine Preziuso makes some interesting stuff, but I can never pronounce the “Preziuso” part of it without sounding like I have something between a speech impediment and a learning disability. It comes out sounding like my tongue spontaneously went numb while trying to speak – another “sorry I am American” moment I guess. This new “Power Inside Unlimited” model is neat looking, but is much more for show than it is for great mechanical appreciation.
Speaking of show, “Power Inside” really reminds me of what He-Man used to say, “I have the power!” And so do you. Then something about the “power of Grayskull…” The point of this Antoine Preziuso Power Inside Unlimited watch is to have a damn large power reserve indicator in order to have the wearer always remember that YOU, the dude wearing the watch, have the power inside you to keep the watch going. Well duh…. Such powerfully powerful power… what do to with it all? I suggest raising your hands above your hear high and making a few masculine grunts while screaming about the vigor of your kinetic energy. Let He-Man be your inspiration. If you have a cool inter-galactic sword to do that with… then all the better.
The watch is He-Man sized (and styled) at 48mm wide in steel with a complex looking case with screws in the sides all over it. Antoine Preziuso is so douchey with how they talk about this. Something about how the 13 screws in the case give it “perfect water resistance.” I didn’t think that 50 meters of water resistance was considered “perfect.” The case is 13mm thick – which isn’t too bad given the size. On the dial you have really thick hands and a nice looking face that feels like a good compliment to this power-hungry mechanism. Remember, the movement feeds off on your precious energy. Does this not disturb you? To have some strange mechanical parasite relying on your movements?!
A high level of machine engraving on the dial give it a nice look. I like all the Geneva stripes on it, and the detail done in the power reserve indicator. The scale goes from “Down” (empty) to “Fine” (full). “Antoine Preziuso watch are you feeling OK?” “Meh, I am fine….” Looks like the movement has a power reserve of about 100 hours.
Not really sure what is going on inside of the watch. Antoine Preziuso himself is an accomplished watch maker, but I do not know if this watch has an in-house made movement or not. Just says that it is powered by an automatic calibre APG 297 movement. The strap on the watch is neat being a combination of carbon fiber and crocodile – now that is something I haven’t seen before. Amusing all around and fun for a bit, wear this watch and you can be the master of your wrist’s universe. You have the friggin’ power, don’t forget that.
