The Amphibia 0252 - My Opinion Is Fact

The best tool watch so far from Raketa -

Welcome to today's "My Opinion Is Fact", as I state unequivocally that the Amphibia 0252 is the best of Raketa's "Tool" collection.

Now the naming conventions that Raketa have adopted can be a touch confusing, but to put this in the correct order: the Amphibia's ultimate designation is (when you land on the final link) listed as "Navy" watch. This is a sub category of "Sea" and "In Love With The Sea", which is a sub-category of "Tool".  Well, part of the "Freemium" coverage here at Tempus Fugit is to try and give you the information you really need, without making you leap through a payment fire wall, and without requiring a brand to pass 3 pieces of silver across my palm in exchange for coverage ; ) 

The other pieces making up the "Tool"  collection are thoughtfully decorated, but perhaps a wee-bit too much so. A tool watch is meant to be just that. Basic, efficient, offering only what is really needed.

Under the hood is Raketa's 2615 -

The other thing that makes this the best of the Raketa Tool collection is the price - 950 including the VAT.

So, if you are hankering for a Russian tool watch, the Amphibia 0252 is the best one out there.  And that is My Opinion Is Fact for today.

Enjoy your watches!
