Temption CM01 Watch

Post by AJC on 2013-04-14, 09:20



As a fan of their work, we try to promote the products of boutique German watch maker Temption whenever possible. The very niche brand offers up some unique creations which we've loved in the past. New for 2013, Temption will debut the simple CM01 watch. A minimalist three-hand automatic with a serious cyclops magnifier for the date. Rolex popularized the magnifier window to make reading the date easier. Since then these have been controversial from a style perspective. The one on the CM01 is said to make the date window appear quite large. In recent years we've seen very few cyclops magnifier windows.

The simple steel case is 43mm wide and under 10mm thick. It contains a Swiss ETA 2892 or Soprod equivalent automatic movement - which is always decorated nicely. The minimalist dial is legible and attractive, though in my opinion the hands are too short. Temption's Klaus Ulrbrich doesn't often produce hands which are too short so I am curious as to why it happened here. Like all Temption watches there will be a cabochon in the crown which is onyx in this CM01 watch. Attached to it will be a simple, soft black calf leather strap. The Temption CM01 is certainly a simple and subdued Temption piece, making it perhaps their first dress watch. Price will be $1,940. temption-watches.de
