Affordable luxury is the core principle of micro brand watchmaker Nation of Souls. Every watch is meticulously designed and made by hand in the UK. In this post, we will compare a signature watch for men, the Eclipse, with a signature watch for women, the Empressa Roma.
The Eclipse: An Ode to Celestial Events
Paying homage to the celestial events known as eclipses, every watch is modeled after a specific stage in the process as the sun or moon makes its way across the sky. Bright white dials are accented by dark leather straps in chestnut, navy blue or black leather, as well as a rose gold brushed stainless steel bracelet. Straps are easily interchangeable, and can be purchased separately in addition to the watches, for even more styling options. A stainless steel case cradles a 42mm round dial with integrated bezel for superior water resistance. On the minimalist dial, there is little to distract the eye from the watch hands, indices and sub-dial. Luminous hands absorb light and promote visibility without adding bulk. Finally, a Seiko quartz movement ensures reliable and accurate timekeeping for decades, making the Eclipse luxury watch for men the perfect watch for daily wear.
The Empressa Roma: A Watch fit for a Queen
Inspired by the elegance and strength of Roman culture, the Empressa Roma watch for ladies is a tribute to the queens of Rome. Much like the women who inspired its design, this watch is equal parts beauty and strength, crafted to withstand the rigors of daily wear with ease. The stacked octagonal case is reinforced with an integrated bezel and topped by scratch resistant mineral glass. A brushed stainless steel bracelet is available in multiple finishes: silver, yellow gold, rose gold or black. Additionally, there is one variant with a cushioned leather strap and silver case featuring a blush pink dial for an extra feminine touch. Powered by a Seiko quartz movement, this stunning watch is sure to add value to her wardrobe every minute, hour and day for years to come.
