Dress Watch. Classic. Modern. Elegant. Affordable. Quality. These are all terms that might not always be synonymous with each other, but that is how I describe Boschett’s first dress watch, the Legacy.
This is my third installment of Boschett reviews, as I have recently reviewed the new Bochett Reef Ranger 2 and the Harpoon.
The Legacy is a bit of a risk for Boschett, seeing as they have become known for sport and rugged watches, more specifically dive watches, like the ones I mentioned above, and also the Cave Dweller.
Coming in at 42mm, and available in a few different versions (steel, gold plated, rose gold plated), a Miyota 9015 automatic movement and a leather strap with dual deployant clasp all for $395 sounds like quite a deal, but what’s my final verdict? Read on for my full review.
Movement = 24 Jewel Miyota 9015; 28,800 bph
316L stainless steel; Available yellow and rose gold plating
30m water resistant
Sapphire crystals front and back
Genuine leather strap
2 clasps; Butterfly and standard tang
Applied dial markers
Dimensions: Case – 42mm w/o crown, Height – 10mm,
Strap – 22mm wide, Lug-to-lug = 50mm
Dial colors = black, white, gold, brown
The packaging is as usual the monstrous Boschett watch and jewelry box. I have a couple of these, and though they do take up some room, they are great to store two watches, your jewelry, straps and tools.
The dial on my version is black, with a matte finish outer dial, and a fan texture center dial. You don’t notice the dial texture much in normal or dim lighting, but in bright lights or the sun, boy does it jump out. The date is located at the 6 o’clock position and all the markers and logo are applied steel. A very clean dial with only the Boschett name, automatic and 24 jewels written on the dial. Less is more, and certainly applies here.
