Hugo Boss 1513676 Dial and Casing Design

If you like all black watches, then you’re sure to love the design of this latest Boss watch. They’ve opted for a smart and stylish look with 3 chronograph subdials, a date display and slim hands with black finished baton hour markers.

The date display is located between the 4 and 5 o’clock hour markers, this isn’t my favourite positioning to be honest but I can see that they’ve opted for it to fit in the Boss logo on the dial. Many people buying designer watches will want the brand to be clearly visible so I can understand the choice made.

The chronograph subdials can be used to operate as a stopwatch to measure intervals of time. You may well have some actual use for this but these days it’s often just a stylistic choice.

The casing itself is made of stainless steel with a diameter of 44mm and a thickness of 11mm. This is a popular size at the moment, more and more people are opting for larger watches, the standard size is around 42mm at the moment so this is just a little over that.

Strap & Clasp

I am a big fan of this style of strap. I love the push button deployment clasp, it’s very easy to operate and I like the way it all comes together. The width of the strap is 22mm and it’s also made of stainless steel just like the casing.

 

The Hugo Boss 1513676 Movement

Powering this Hugo Boss watch is a Japanese quartz movement. These are found in many affordable designer watches such as this model. They’re known for being accurate and reliable, they just lack any of the extra bells and whistles of higher end timepieces.

 

Hugo Boss 1513676 Crystal

Protecting the from of the timepiece is a mineral crystal glass lens. This again is found in many affordable watches. Mineral crystal glass is specially hardened to offer a great middle ground between scratch and shatter resistance.

 

1513676 Water Resistance 

The water resistance rating of this Hugo Boss watch is just 30m. That’s a very basic water rating and makes it suitable for everyday use. Splash/rain resistant. Keep in mind it is not suitable for showering, bathing, swimming, snorkeling, water related work, fishing, and diving. Learn more about resistance ratings on Wikipedia.
