A classic look with modern touches, the Tessera watch is the sophomore effort from the watchmaker Leo Padron. Each Padron Watch is made with 150 Meter marine grade stainless steel and sapphire crystal and exclusively use high beat mechanical-wind movements. Padron Watches are water resistanct to 150 meters, use no electronics nor a battery, and hence are excellent choices for low-temperature climates and demanding weather. The components come from abroad but everything is assembled by hand in their Minnesota facility. At a price around $500 this is a watch that looks great and doesn’t break your wrist when you reach for the wallet.
Available from Padron.
