I will be the first to admit that in my mind, the words ‘Kenneth Cole’ and ‘watch’ do not come as an automatic pairing. But when I was shown this Gents Chronograph Brown Strap Watch, my heart jumped a little.
I can’t pinpoint why I felt that way. Maybe it’s the colour. For one, the brown dial is a nice change from all the boring white dial faces. Secondly, the brown croco grain leather strap is irresistible to any watch lover. It particular works well here and it adds a touch of luxury to what would otherwise be an urban-looking watch.
The brown case has a rustic and vintage feel to it and it’s made of stainless steel. The dial face is protected by a mineral glass crystal. The watch also features a handy date display and two eye chronographs.
Function-wise, the movement is a quartz analogue and the watch is also water resistant at 30 metres. The case measures approximately 42mm x 9mm – which I would consider small – but the large white hour markers make the dial face readable at a glance.
The Kenneth Cole Gents Chronograph Brown Strap Watch is from the Kenneth Cole New York collection. The model reference is KC1778.
