So, I'm not against big
replica watches, but
being able to comfortably wear the 50mm-wide, 13.5mm-thick
Sisu Carburetor Q1 was a pleasant surprise. I like it when
something exposes and challenges my preconceptions. Almost
Sisu's entry-level piece, the quartz movement and mineral crystal
further placed the Sisu Carburetor Q1 outside of my usual watch-
appreciation comfort zone. These features, however, allowed me
to focus on what Sisu specifically does well, and that is build
quality and comfort. And Sisu does offer many watches with
sapphire crystal and Swiss automatic movements, but they cost
more money than this model, of course. The Sisu Carburetor Q1 is
genuinely sturdy-feeling and comfortable despite its size. Its
surprising wearability is actually a commendable achievement, and
I recommend anyone drawn to the look to not hesitate in trying
one on. Honestly, I expected it to look ridiculous on me, but it
didn't - and, while you may not agree, people I specifically asked
confirmed that it did not look particularly silly. Where I live it is hot
all year, and people wear a lot of short sleeves and
cheap omega watches -
Panerai("-style") and G-Shock are very common. I was a little
disappointed, actually, that wearing the Sisu Carburetor Q1 out did
not seem to draw much attention. This brings us to an aspect of
Sisu I find interesting. That is that while the brand is macho, for
sure, the "boldness" is achieved with size and emphasizing size,
but avoids loud colors and blingy elements. That indicates some
restraint and undercuts the idea that Sisu is just a look-at-me
brand, as it may be easy to assume from their over-the-top and
in-your-face designs
cheap breitling
. This Sisu Carburetor Q1 actually does not incorporate
one of the elements that I most associate with the brand as the
Sisu signature.
