So, remember when we brought you word of Xetum’s newest model (well, it was a teaser, to be sure). Â Well, today is the big day – the newest member of the Tyndall family is now available.
When we had the teaser post back last month, the only details I had about it were the PVD case (which isn’t currently available in their production models). Â Not only do you get that finish, Xetum has also put a carbon fiber dial into the mix.
Now, if you’ve read my stuff here for any amount of time, you know that I like the visual effect you get with a CF dial. Â Not just the texture of the weave, but the fact that numerals and indices appear to float a bit, due to the clear coating over the CF. Â It’s a neat visual effect, in a few different ways.
From what I’m told, Xetum’s last LE model (back in 2011) sold out very quickly. Â And given how popular their designs are, I wouldn’t be surprised to see this one (limited to 300 pieces), move briskly, even with the $300 premium bringing the price up toÂ $1,699.
In terms of tech specs, this model remains unchanged from their others in the lineup; you can read out take on it here. Â Xetum produces some solid and cleanly styled watches, and their new Tyndall makes for some stealthy design changes – ones that keep the clean lines in place.
