‘Every dog will have his day’
The second of today’s reviews is a complete contrast to our first in regards to affordability. In this post, we are going to be having a quick look at Lew and Huey’s Riccardo rally inspired automatic chronograph. Chris Vial is the owner and founder of Lew and Huey Watches in Philadelphia. His story started in 2012 when he “got it into his head that he could design a watch that people would like, get it made and sell it at an affordable price”. I think that with the Riccardo he has succeeded in that.
Through nothing but luck, the Watch This Space team were sent a Riccardo. The reason I say luck is that the day I contacted Chris he was shipping a watch to a friend in Melbourne and when his friend received that he shipped it directly to us. In my opinion, the face of the Riccardo is really cool. The colour scheme of this piece gels well together. The blue dial works in very nicely with the small touches of red used on the hands.
The case of the Riccardo is made of 316L stainless steel and its diameter is 42mm. The watch back is made up of a sapphire glass that shows off the ST1940 Cal movement. It is water resistant to 100 meters and has a one-year warranty. The watch is topped off with a brown leather and white stitching strap with a deployment clasp.
If you are looking for a beautiful watch that is going to turn heads at an affordable price, then look no further than the Riccardo. The Riccardo sells for USD$550 and also comes in a black and orange, which I prefer to the blue dial.
