Jiusko Sport Chronograph

As you may know we had quite the response to the last offer from this series, so we’ve managed to locate the strap option! Like its predecessor, this is one of the strongest buys we’ve discovered in some time, dare we say a must-own. This Jiusko 43mm x 15mm is wrought from 316L steel. But look closer; much closer. This is a multi-piece sculpted case. Just look at it from the side. Note the detail in the walls, and also the sculpted crown. The collars on the pushers, and the way the bezel is assembled. The dial is a sandwich multi-level, with varying texture and applied luminous markers. The large blade hands are luminous as well, with both hands and markers decorated with the accent color. The ensemble is protected by a solid SAPPHIRE crystal. And here is something the prior offer did not have; with the exception of the screwed in back the entire case shows off the expensive brushed black finish!
