Spinnaker Sorrento SP-5067 Wood-Bezeled Watch

The new Spinnaker Sorrento SP-5067 watch is designed to evoke the wooden-hulled speed boats seen on the eponymous Italian coast in a way that’s immediately recognizable to the wearer. The Sorrento is all about the bezel, which is inlaid with sustainably sourced rosewood that is treated to be weather-resistant and tough enough to withstand everyday life. We are proud to release the new Spinnaker Sorrento SP-5067 watch as the latest high-quality piece that stands out from the crowd, while being accessible to fans of the brand and newcomers, alike.

The bezel of the Spinnaker Sorrento is done in a sustainably sourced rosewood insert that we have inlaid onto a stainless-steel bezel. You’ll see the six screws that we use to affix the wood to the bezel, which doubles as an aesthetic flair on top of its practical purpose. Of course, we assemble the device in a way that has each of the screws fitting perfectly as part of the high standard of refinement we maintain for each Spinnaker.

Moving onto the dial, the theme of the wooden hull is echoed in the horizontal pattern on the inner disc of the dial. The aesthetic theme is distinct, without being too obvious, which we’re very proud of. The rest of the dial features faceted hour markers and around the previously mentioned inner disc, you’ll see the minute track that corresponds with each of the three variants of the Spinnaker Sorrento. The hands are pencil-shaped and have a generous application of lume (along with the applied indices). Finally, you’ll notice the seconds sub-dial between 4 and 5 o’clock and the date window at 3 o’clock.

The case of the Spinnker Sorrento measures 43mm-wide and 13.6mm-thick. The water resistance is 100 meters, which provides ample protection to regular water exposure and sports. The exhibition case back reveals a view into the automatic 8218 Miyota movement, a reliable workhorse that has a parashock system and provides a weekend-length power reserve of 42 hours.

    Not bad.
    Good luck.

    • And the bezel screws line up – that is a winner for you anyway!

        I was going to add that I didn’t like the screw heads here. They didn’t fit plush to the bezel.

    Spinnaker refer to the movement as having a “weekend length..of 42 hours”. Hate to be a stickler but last I checked a weekend was 48 hours. And even if it had 48, you would have to take it off after finishing work midnight Friday and start work again midnight Sunday. Perhaps Batman would find this useful.

    I like the watch. Maybe next time just cut back a tad on the typical sponsored post verbal diarrhea.

    • I was thinking the same thing. A 72 hour power reserve is more my idea of a weekend length item.

  • SuperStrapper

    No idea why subsidiary seconds were employed here other than to ruin the dial?

    • A by-product of using a Miyota 82xx series movement. As soon as I saw the seconds location, I knew what the movement was. But if your point is that a 2 hander would be better, I can see that.

  • Having done watches with wood dial overlays, I know that you have to be very picky about the pieces of wood used. Dials are so small compared to normal wooden items, that you have to be very concerned with the grain especially (both direction/tightness and surface smoothness). So if you don’t hand select pieces of wood you get too much variation in the resulting dials. That could be the problem here. I’m leery of wood on the exterior of watches, but I think they have done as well as can be expected with a wooden bezel. I agree the dial overlay/ring does not complement this particular watch.
