Emporio Armani AR11079 Dial and Casing Design

This Emporio Armani is perfect for anyone who loves designer watch brands. It’s an ultra stylish, slim watch with a primarily black design that’s very in lately. You may want to check out more of our best black watches that we’ve featured in the past if that’s what you like.

The AR11079 features a black dial with slim silver toned hands and baton style hour markers. The Emporio Armani logo and print can be found at the 12 o’clock position.

For many people who go for designer watches like this it’s important that the brand name is visible so this is perfect for that. There’s also a slim date display at the 6 o’clock position which I like the addition of.

The casing of this Armani watch is made of stainless steel with a black PVD finish. The diameter of the casing is 43mm and the thickness is actually just 9mm making this a beautiful slim watch. 43mm is a very popular size for men’s watches and should be suitable for most people.

Strap & Clasp

Above you can see a picture of the strap of the AR11079. The strap is made of stainless steel with PVD coating. This is a deployment style clasp, it happens to be one of my favourite styles, I find it to be very comfortable and easy to operate. The width of this strap is 20mm which is perfect for the 43mm casing size.


The Emporio Armani AR11079 Movement

At the heart of this Armani watch is a Japanese made quartz movement. These are known for being accurate and reliable, they’re an affordable movement found in many watches in this price range. This is what I would expect to see in a watch like this so I’m completely happy with it to be honest.


Emporio Armani AR11079 Crystal

A mineral crystal glass lens protects the front of the timepiece. This type of glass is specially hardened to offer extra resistance against scratches and shattering. Again, this is found on many affordable watches in this price range.


AR11079 Water Resistance 

The water resistance rating of this timepiece is 50m. I’m pleased with this as I wasn’t actually expecting it to be as good as 50m. A 50m water resistance rating makes this watch suitable for everyday use, showering, bathing, shallow-water swimming, snorkeling, water related work, fishing. Learn more about resistance ratings on Wikipedia.
