All About the Sevenfriday Watches
The founders wanted to create a distinctive watch brand that has Swiss craftsmanship and is affordable. The old-school principles because of the restrictive rules and regulations associated with the traditional Swiss watch-making techniques often increase the price of the watches exorbitantly.
Since creative freedom was restricted, therefore, the company followed an innovative and cost-effect method to produce their Seven Friday watches. The watches from this exclusive brand are designed in Switzerland and manufactured by expert manufacturers in Japan, where the production costs are lower. The high-quality remains uncompromised and yet affordability is maintained.
P Series the debut collection was launched in 2012 and it was followed by M, V, Q, S, T and W series in the subsequent years.
Seven Friday Watch Collection
The designs are original and all Seven Friday watches typically integrate two key segments: the Box (case) and the Interface. The case, protective glass, and animation ring/bezel are incorporated in the box. The discs, hands, dial, and movement are placed in the interface.
All Seven Friday watches display the multi-layer interface design in the center and a streamlined layout includes the intricate design details. The number of layers can be 4, 5, 6 or 7 depending upon the model. The interface shows time with analog hands or discs, or sometimes it is the combination of both.
The Seven Friday watches are characteristically made of stainless steel and are coated with PVD coating in some versions. Each watch is fitted with a hardened mineral crystal glass. The watches are water-resistant up to 30 meters underwater (30 atmospheres/atm). Japanese manufacturers equip all the brand’s watches the mechanical self-winding movements.
