A late spring encounter: the new Rolex InterGold Tan One (124273)

After a few heavy snowfalls at the start of spring in the capital, the temperature has quickly warmed up. With the spring in full swing comes the urge for friends to make plans for spring. Coincidentally, I was discussing travel plans with my friends. I received a message from my counter sister: a new Makuhimo Tanichi has arrived, would you like to consider it?

I then passed the message on to my best friend, who immediately said that he was thinking of travelling in the spring and wanted a new watch with the same theme, so I decided to take it. However, considering that my friend was still in home isolation, I went to the counter to pick up the watch on his behalf.

Before I left, I had a quick look at the official website to learn more about the Tangyi.

It turns out that the Tan One has undergone an update in April 2021. The diameter of the watch was reduced from 39mm to 36mm, making it more suitable for wrists of up to 16cm in circumference.

On actual hands, I found that.

  1. the 36mm diameter is not as small as expected, and it fits perfectly with a wrist circumference of 16cm.
  2. the interval gold is not as “rustic” as expected, and the overall colour scheme is quite harmonious.
    3, black dial, or more complementary to the dial elements, and does not lead to visual monotony.

After all, it was a special occasion, so the process of lifting the watch was quick, 15 minutes.

After returning, I had to play with it carefully and take a set of pictures].

A set of details.
The black dial, with the K gold bezel, is still very harmonious.

The gold bracelet and clasp are really good value initially, but as you wear it over time, the hairline will soon be all over the K-gold part. Cherish this brand new moment.

Perhaps the design of the movement of the Tangyi does not take into account the rotating bit of the handle, so it is not vertically aligned.
