Watch Of The Day: Roue HDS 1
Roue (French for “wheel”) was founded by Alex Iervolino, who started the brand after 20 years of working in finance but held a lifelong passion for industrial design, classic European cars, and vintage luxury timepieces. When Iervolino launched Roue, he blended his passion for industrial design with his eye for classic, stylish watches.
In Roue’s debut collection, the watches show a commitment to quality, an ability to borrow style from the classics, and still highlight a unique look that will surely evolve into some of your future favorite watches. But for today, watch of the day is focusing on the Roue HDS 1.
The Roue HDS 1 is a perfect example of Iervolino’s ability to create a unique timepiece with influences of minimalist, classic European mechanics, and modern style. This timepiece was successfully built to look, perform, and feel like a high-end timepiece but without breaking the bank.
The Roue HDS 1 features Roue’s signature design, a tapered rounded cushion-shaped case and brushed stainless steel finish with a matte finish look. The dial, surrounded by a signature yellow-gold crystal gasket, features a black and graphite look with a compass-like design. Subtle uses of Roue’s yellow-gold in the logo and seconds-hand really make this timepiece pop.
One of my favorite design characteristics is the back of the timepiece’s case. Surrounding the Roue logo is a checkered, almost optical-illusion, looking design that shows this watch was engineered with every angle in mind.
Roue’s commitment to high-end watches at affordable prices is apparent across their entire debut collection but thanks to our bros at Huckberry, this particular timepiece is even more affordable. Right now, you can get the Roue HDS 1 for only $136.98 (15% off).
