Relide might not be a name that pops up in collectors’ minds when thinking about vintage watches, but after seeing a watch like this one, it’s really hard to forget. Formed in the 1930s as a subsidiary of Walter Triebold (who also manufactured watches under the marks Leal and Mexa), Relide’s offerings embody the fun and quirky spirit of 1960s design trends.
When viewed from any angle, this watch is a delight to the eye. The unpolished 36.5mm stainless steel case boasts a beautiful sunburst finishing on the top, culminating in sharp bevels which give way to a flat polished surface on the sides. The sunburst finishing draws the eye to the dial in a deep fumé blue that darkens almost to a black around the outer edges, making the chunky numerals and the hour plots (which have aged to an almost greenish hue) stand out even more.
Inside it beats a 17-jewel Swiss-made manually-wound movement, making it as reliable as it is fun to look at.
