TF T-Fun 3-Hands DIVER

By TLex Here's a 'fun' little 15ATM diver! The T-Fun from TF has a 45mm 316L Stainless steel case with a water-resistance of 150m (not sure why they couldn't achieved the extra 50m, tho). The case is available in 3 finishes: steel, gold and black. There are a plethora dial / bezel color options. Both dial and bezels are made form carbon fiber.


I'm not apposed to a little CF on the dial, but I find it a little distracting on the bezel - when both are done it's CF-overload! I quite like the handset, but the oversized crowns seem a little redundant given its poor depth rating. Still you have to admire TF's confidence with statements like: 'They're going to fly off the shelves!' Who knows perhaps they will in the right circles. MSRP 890CHF. . .


From TF Est. 1968, a global yet all-Swiss brand, launches T-Fun, an ultra-trendy watch collection comprising two key lines: a three-hand automatic version and a quartz chronograph. Their signature codes include a dial and bezel with carbon fibre, as well as highly luminescent hands and logo. Their price is very attractive and the range of colours is impressive, with gold-plated, white, black, green, brown and red versions. They're going to fly off the shelves!


A member of the mechanical family, the T-Fun automatic, water-resistant to 150 metres, 45 mm in diameter. In an exceptional move for a mechanical timepiece available at an incredibly affordable price that will test anyone’s powers of resistance, this T-Fun timepiece houses a 100% Swiss made decorated and circular-grained, Côtes de Genève finished three-hand automatic calibre.


Personalized down to the surfaces of its oscillating weight, the movement is open to view through a transparent back. Fitted with a sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating, water-resistant to 15 atm, the case crafted in 916L steel or 5N gold plate transcends even the eye-grabbing chocolate brown and apple green colour scheme, shot through with flashes of vivid orange or white. 


Genuine carbon coats the dial and the circular grained matching bezel. The virile screw-down crown, struck with the identity-rich TF logo, makes a proud linear statement.








MOVEMENT Automatic, circular-grained with 'Côtes de Genève' motif.
