Founded by Brigitte and Olaf Vockerodt, the brand Uhren Forum aims at providing collectors with affordable watches focused on quality, design and functionality. The name is rather odd, because it is easily mistaken by Internet search engines for German-speaking “Watch Forum”.
Sold at 1’780 EUR, Their flagship is a full calendar chronograph based on the Valjoux 7751. The design is a clever mix of classical and modern cues. The German-built stainless steel case is sized at 41 mm and is resistant to 10 bar. It is available with a standard or a coin-edge bezel, and the designer managed to fit various information on the dial without making it feel crammed: hour an minutes, synchronized 24 hours, weekday, month and date, moonphase, seconds register and tachymetric scale.
The movement Valjoux 7751 comes with the highest finishing and undergoes C.O.S.C certification. The calendar windows for weekday and month benefits from custom-printed disks, with white text on a black background.
The watch is available on a black leather strap, but a stainless steel bracelet can also be fitted.

As always, the visual elements are quite nicely balanced and allow a smooth reading of informations.
