Introduction to D1 Milano Watches
Monday - 24 May 2021
One of the latest brands to join the Jura Watches family is D1 Milano, a youthful Italian watch manufacturer with a mission to create stylish, high precision and affordable timepieces for men and women. Their strong aesthetics and exceptional attention to detail is born from an Italian heritage and yet despite their formidable presence on the wrist, D1 Milano watches award it all at an affordable price – what more could you need in an entry level timepiece?
Founded in Milan in 2013, D1 Milano is the brainchild of Dario Spallone who at just 20-years-old recognised the absence of attractive and unconventional timepieces at an affordable price. It was his mission to create recognisable watches, watches with strong shapes and formidable aesthetics, watches with high precision movements and clever complications, watches with all things that you’d expect in a premium timepiece but offer them at a non-premium price. His objective has since succeeded with D1 Milano proving to grow quickly and effectively with offices in Dubai and Hong Kong and D1 Milano watches distributed in over 28 countries.
D1 Milano Polycarbon Watches
The Italian watch brand’s very first watch, the D1 Milano Polycarbon remains their best-selling design and has just been recently transformed to deliver an even better finish. Engineered from black coated polycarbonate with a soft-touch finish, these masculine sports watches are as stealthy as they come with an all-black look detailed by black Superluminova on the hands and a seriously stylish all-black bracelet. For a contrast in colour, check of the D1 Milano Polycarbon watches paired with rose gold, gun metal or glass fixed bezels.
D1 Milano Ultra Thin Watches
Just as the name suggests, the D1 Milano Ultra Thin watch collection is home to a range of classically styled timepieces designed to mould elegantly to the wrist and slide unobtrusively beneath the cuff of a shirt. First launched in 2017, the series has become another of the brand’s staples with two key styles to choose from. The first is the Ultra Thin Classic which is available in 34, 38 and 40mm stainless steel case sizes on a choice of genuine Italian leather, nylon or denim straps. The second is the Ultra Thin Bracelet which as expected delivers the same timeless design on a premium full stainless steel bracelet.
D1 Milano Commando Watches
Lovers of vintage timepieces will love the D1 Milano Commando watch collection, a series inspired by the “Dirty Dozen” watches created for the British Army during World War II. The strong-shaped brushed stainless steel cases mark the brand’s first move into the world of military watches while the scratch resistant mineral glass with anti-reflective coating, 100 metre water resistant rated screw in crowns and high precision Miyota quartz movements ensure each D1 Milano Commando watch is fully equipped to become an essential piece of gear configured for victory.
D1 Milano Chronograph Watches
One of the brand’s latest collections, the D1 Milano Chronograph brings a taste of adrenaline, sport and adventure to their portfolio. Characterised by their brightly coloured dials, sleek cushion shaped cases and sporty internal tachymeter scales, these D1 Milano watches accelerate the brand’s prowess for innovation. And of course, their most notable feature is their chronograph complication, which powered by a high precision Seiko quartz calibre, delivers chronograph flyback function, small seconds and chronograph counters for 30 minutes and 12 hours.
