Our T16 earned its worldwide popularity after in his interview to the Wall Street Journal, Richard Branson told the reporter he wears it since he thinks it is “pretty” (To the full interview: http://www.wsj.com/articles/richard-bransons-tech-essentials-1411156350). Loyal to all Torgoen signature watches, the T16 has a clean look dial and is designed for ease of read, with large, luminescent digits and markers that can be clearly viewed even in the dark. The sophisticated chronograph movement is made by Ronda, a highly regarded Swiss movement manufacturer, and can measure time between two events with a resolution of 1/10 of a second and up to 30 minutes. The T16 is encased in a high grade (316L), solid stainless steel case and shielded by a scratch resistant, super hardened (K1) mineral crystal. A double “O” ring crown gives the T16 its water resistance protection: up to 100 meters under water. The fine Italian vintage leather strap with heavy duty solid stainless steel buckle offers not just an elegant look, but also great comfort and durability. This incredible timepiece is worthy of Mitchell’s memory. The T16 was designed in memory of R.J. Mitchell, designer of the legendary Supermarine Spitfire Fighter aircraft. Summed up in a word, Mitchell’s legacy is ‘simplicity’, or as he put it “if anybody ever tells you anything about an aeroplane which is too bloody complicated for you to understand, take it from me: it´s all balls.” In his spirit, this watch is simple, straightforward and timeless, with a design inspired by altimeters of a cockpit.
