In keeping with pens’ innovative use of materials, and to maintain the spirit of the eponymous cocktail, as well as the piping found in distilleries, the Mule watches have turned to a metal rarely seen in watchmaking: natural copper. This warm-coloured substance has been chosen for the 43mm case, with protective shoulders on either side of the crown. It houses a Swiss-made RONDA 515 quartz movement. The naturally reddish hue perfectly encompasses and complements dials in a choice of pearlised white or black.
Each shimmering metallic dial is adorned with Arabic numerals at 3, 6, 9 and 12 o’clock, in the manner of military watches, to best provide ultimate legibility. The time is indicated by elegant, elongated Dauphine hands for hours and minutes, with a thin, arrow-straight sweep hand for the seconds, with the date
appearing through a window at 3 o’clock.
Completing the suave look of the Montegrappa Mule wristwatch is a beautiful, genuine leather, raw-cut strap, hand-made and hand-stitched in black to showcase the coppery tones of the watch itself. The buckle is made of stainless steel, as is the caseback, completing a timepiece as chic as the drinks that most likely accompany it.
