REVIEW – By now, everyone who reads my reviews knows that I am a big fan of the CIGA watch design. As a collector of watches and especially mechanical automatic watches, I am always intrigued by a new CIGA design. I am excited to now have another opportunity to review CIGA’s latest design which is the CIGA Design X Series Mechanical Watch.
What is it?
The CIGA Design X Series integrates a patented automated mechanism embedded into a unique X-shaped skeleton and an innovative suspension system.
What’s in the box
1 x CIGA Design X Series Mechanical Watch
1 x Nylon Watch Band
1 x Silicone Watch Band
I x Presentation box with Printed Instructions
Design and features
In keeping with the functionality of the mechanical automatic, the X Series displays a self-winding movement that recharges automatically as you wear it. With a power reserve of approximately 40 hours and a movement frequency of 21600 times/hour, the X Series features a compact and steady automatic movement. The dual-shell structure, equipped with a high-performance sport utility vehicle suspension system, includes a four-angle spring distribution to unveil the all-new CIGA Design anti-vibration capability.
The watch bands come with a spring clip for easy installation and removal.
According to CIGA:
The CIGA Design X Series integrates a patented automated mechanism embedded into a unique X-shaped skeleton – the core of the utmost sophisticated experience.
The look and feel:
Just like the previous CIGA watch models, this watch feels great on my wrist, with eh right weight. It works flawlessly and keeps accurate time. The compliments that I receive support my opinion of its elegance, sophistication, and attractiveness.
The following is a video of the watch movement from the back and the front:
From CIGA: “A powerful look and even more stunning at nighttime, X Series Super-LumiNova is where your senses come awake.
Note 1: In order to enhance the natural brightness of pure silver, CIGA Design does not offer Super-LumiNova feature on the watches from its Silver collection.
Note 2: Black & Purple version’s luminosity brightness is 50% as the Black & Orange version’s.
What I like
- The build quality
- The attractive design and look
- The included watch bands
- The quality of the watch movement and its accuracy
What I’d change
- Nothing on this model that I would change
As I mentioned in my previous review, ever since I received my first CIGA Design watch, I have been a fan. I love the sleek and edgy look, and since I prefer automatic mechanical watches, this watch is another perfect fit. I wear it daily. I think the look is timeless, and once again I give CIGA a well done and two thumbs up!!
