Grandpa instilled the love of automatics early, but much of the 1990’s I had some type of silver bracelet quartz (victorinox?) maybe? that I abused around the globe until it finally failed after a decade of torture and 3 battery changes.
I did stray further with eco and solar after that, but always had Grandpa’s Benrus auto in various states of disrepair.
Thanks to WUS, I was turned on to Bertucci, and found the Bertucci C-1T.
Titanium wasn’t the goal, but a nice looking, simple, reliable watch was....
The case is thicker than I had hoped for, but I will get over that quickly.
The factory leather strap is quite nice and surprisingly fits my 8.25” wrist snug on the 3rd hole with plenty of the end left over to tuck in the keeper.
The strap is measured as 3/4” or 19mm wide on the company website but a 20mm nato still has some wiggle room.
Time will tell how much abuse I can give her...
