Hands-On: The Yes Equilibrium

Postby Racer-X » August 20th 2018, 4:33pm

"In the world of bespoke quartz watches, the Yes Equilibrium may well be the Henry Graves Supercomplication. While decidedly a wrist watch, its large size and myriad features makes it something of an oddball, even among the Pro Treks, Fenixs, and Elementum Terras of the world. Highly in tune with the rhythms of the Sun and the Moon, the yes Equilibrium is a nerdy watch for a rather specific type of crowd, and from sunset to dawn, and everything thing in between, this incredibly niche product manages to be unique among a growing cavalcade of multi-role digital sport watches.

If you want to run a marathon, go with the Garmin Fenix, if you want a tough go-anywhere plastic fantastic, go with the Casio Rangeman. But if you want something truly unique, take a look at the new Equilibrium from Yes watches. The Equilibrium is strange, immensely complex, and unlike anything on offer today.

The link doesn't work for me.
But that's OK-I've never seen a YES that I could figure out.

What do they use for case finishing, a box of Cape Cods? Shines like dog's balls, and looks like one of these "restored" cases on eBay, overpolished beyond measure.

And it is the size of an NHL puck, FFS. Could be a neat watch but the chrome bumper finish, gargantuan size and thickness just make this laughable.

The guy running the show back in 2016 is/was a member here. Anyone remember when these were sold on Evine back in 2003/2004?

Or, you can get a Gee Rangeman, which does most of this stuff, is fairly easy to learn how to use, and doesn't make you look like a mental patient when you wear it.
I checked you out, and I now want you to take the journey to lick my taint. It's small, but vast.
