In November WatchPro unveiled its Watches of the Year 2013, made up of 10 winning timepieces and 90 highly commended watches that we felt boasted commercial appeal, innovation and had wowed consumers and retailers alike over the past 12 months.
Highly commended for the WatchPro Sports Watch of the Year 2013 was the Festina Tour Of Britain Watch 2013.
When it comes to professional cycling, Festina has the experience and knowledge to create an ideal watch for the sport, and that’s exactly what it did with the 2013 Tour of Britain Watch.
This sporty chronograph was the official watch of the 10th edition of the Tour of Britain, which took place this year.
The ergonomic chronograph models were released in two distinct executions, a stainless steel bracelet model and a particularly sporty version on a rubber strap. On both, the 45mm stainless steel case, which houses a quartz movement, is enhanced by an octagonal crown and a brushed top ring with 10 minute interval markings.
The rubber strap model has the added feature of a coloured top pusher matching the dial. It is suitably sporty but smart enough to wear to the office too.
