Florijn Model 2 Watch Review

Postby koimaster » August 18th 2017, 8:55am

One of the nice things about being a reviewer is not only getting to check out the new models from established or luxury brands, but the newer brands that keep popping up, and being able to share with our readers. Florijn (pronounced Floor- rhine), is a new Dutch brand, and their first model is a 45mm dive watch with some nice specifications and a U.S. price of $365.

The name, FLORIJN, is of Dutch origin. The first guilder (in Dutch gulden, meaning ‘golden’) was called FLORIJN, after the Florentine lily from the arms of the city of Florence, where in 1252 the first major golden coinage since the Carolingian period was minted. You can see more about the company and its founder HERE.

So, what about the watch? Well, its a 45mm stainless steel case that comes in 3 versions. Brushed with DLC bezel (as reviewed), all brushed steel and a full DLC coated case.
