A Review of the Donner Depression Range
The Donner Deponia watch is one of the best watch selections in the men’s luxury horological category. This model has been created for the discriminating few who can appreciate a timepiece that displays the absolute finest craftsmanship. Even if you are not among the chosen few, the Donner line of watches will surely delight you. You can select from a wide collection that makes for an excellent gift idea.
The Classic Range is perhaps the most representative example of the Donner collection. It is distinguished by a clean and minimalist design. There are two dials, the inner being a time counter while the outer one has the second hands display. The inner dial is covered with luminous hands that respond to your movements. Silver toned case offers a handsome looking watch and a stainless steel bracelet completes the overall look.
Unlike its more expensive siblings, the Classic Range does not have a date function. However, you can still enjoy the benefits of the automatic movement. The other difference you may find between the Standard and the Classic ranges is the inner case. The Classic Range features a square case, while the Standard Range uses a round shaped case.
In terms of functions, there is a lot to love in the Donner Depression Submersible. For example, the inner case contains a diver’s bezel that allows for a chronograph that does not have a backlight. Additionally, the inner bezel houses the date, the time, and the day of the week. Also on this model is the second hands display that makes the watch easy to read.
The Donner Depression Chronograph is also quite impressive. The inner bezel houses the time and the date and there is a second hand display. The face of the watch has five interchangeable crowns. This model offers an easy to use all-metal, self-winding mechanical movement.
If you want something a little more exciting, you might want to consider the Donner Depression Grandfather watch. This watch is a re-creation of the original watch worn by Thomas Edison. In fact, the first Grandfather watch was manufactured more than 150 years ago. The watch sports a twenty-second subdial as well as a crown with eighteen diamonds. Along with the large diamonds, the dial has been crafted with mother of pearl and applied with luminous hands.
Donner also manufactures ladies’ version of their Vintage styled model. The Classic Donner has a clean rectangular face and a three-level chronograph with luminous hands. It comes in either silver or gold-tone cases and includes a gold-tone luminous Subdial. The case is designed to be water-resistant up to a certain depth and features a two-year limited warranty.
The Donner Depression Range is meant to evoke images of vintage American style. With its sleek, modern look, it fits perfectly into today’s contemporary man’s wardrobe. The Donner company also ensures that each of the models that they manufacture are functional and accurate, and the range promises never-ending fun and excitement.
