Welcome back to our watch of the week series. Before we begin to explore different types of watches, we at Drmenstyle.com would like to apologize beforehand. These past two weeks have been a roller coaster of events. Nevertheless, we at Drmenstyle.com are back at our favorite post, Watch of the Week #27. Previously, we explored the Laco type B. If you missed out on the previous post, you can click here to learn more about them. Today, we will be exploring about Bering’s Automatic 16243-564. Therefore, let’s get ready to learn about this beautiful watch.

Firstly, we will discuss the material of this beautiful and minimalistic Danish design watch. For once, this watch is using a stainless steel case, wit PVD rose plating finish. PVD is a physical vapor deposition, a method that is very similar to electroplating, giving the stainless steel a luxury appearance. As for the strap, it is made from genuine leather. Finally, sapphire glass is used for the crystal of the watch.

The bearing automatic is using the precise automatic movement, VITUS 1728, in collaboration with Miyota, Japan. Generally, this is a 3-hand automatic movement with additional features. A few features include a 40-hour power reserve, date indicator as well as a 24-hour indicator, overlapping the date indicator. On top of that, it also has 21 number of jewels.

Overall, we at Drmenstyle fell in love with this watch. You can say, it was love at first sight. The minimalistic approach to design pays really well as it makes keeping time with this watch very easy. First of all, the rose gold PVD case really matches well with the off-white dial. On top of that, the index markers are also coated with rose gold plating. Other features of the watch like the hands are also coated in rose gold plating.

Furthermore, the pencil shape hands also come with a luminous coating, to make it easier to keep time especially in a low light environment. Moreover, we especially like how the date and 24-hour indicator overlapped, with the world map engraved on the sub-dial of the 24-hour indicator.
