The Wandering Hours Phantasos Triclops
File this below a-little-too-late, as their Kickstarter already ended, however there’s a brand new entry into the inexpensive wandering hour class, the Phantasos Triclops. Just a few months in the past I reviewed the Atowak Ettore Drift, and applauded its try at bringing a sometimes high-end complication to the mainstream, although I used to be much less a fan of the general aesthetic. Properly, in the event you’ve been hoping for an inexpensive wandering hour with a extra tasteful design, Phantasos has it.
The Triclops encompasses a 42mm case with pretty basic strains, and a giant, open dial area meant to place the three-headed wandering hour carriage on full show. Relatively than discs, just like the Atowak, the Triclops makes use of drums that rotate, for somewhat additional pizazz. Comparisons to Urwerk are simple to make, in fact, however given the worth and that there are solely so some ways to crack a wandering-hour-egg, I believe they get move.
Powering the Triclops is the Miyota 90S5, an in depth relative of the 9015, and Phantasos claims with their wandering hour complication the -10/＋30 sec per day chronometric requirements was maintained. Good things. Even higher in the event you received it on the KS low cost of $648, although the MSRP of $980 continues to be respectable. General, a enjoyable little package deal, although I want that they had forgone the built-in lugs, however who’s asking? Phantasos.
