UNDERSTAND THE TRUE QUALITY OF A PRISMA WATCH.
EXPERTISE SINCE 1948
Wrist watches were first worn by military men towards the end of the nineteenth century. It was clear that using pocket watches while in the heat of battle was impractical, so officers began to strap the watches to their wrist. Unfortunately high quality watches, which were resilient against the elements of nature, were very rare then.
Watches of that time could not withstand heavy impacts, so the quality of used materials was improved in subsequent years. Inspired by this development and circumstances, the first Prisma watch was produced in 1948 from the desire to deliver a quality timepiece which could stand the age of time.
All Prisma watches are made from all stainless steel or titanium. A selection of these quality watches also have (scratch proof) sapphire glass. We aim to make people happy with the same watch for a long time. Watches really get their value over the years. Therefore only the highest quality materials are used. And everyday we are looking for ways to improve this quality.
Quality watches have a quality movement. Prisma was one of the world’s first watch brands with quartz movements in the mid-20th century. A major advantage of the quartz movement is that there are less moving parts required. This innovation made Prisma watches more accurate and less expensive.
Of course there are different brands and types of quartz movements. Prisma is using Ronda (Swiss), Miyota and Seiko (Japanese). These are well-known for their durability and value for money. Which is in line with Prisma’s mission to offer reliable timepieces for everyday use.
To make sure you will get a quality watch, all Prisma watches purchased come with a two-year warranty from the original date of purchase. Made to last. Check out what artofmanliness.com has to say about quality watches.
Almost nothing is so damaging to your watch as water. So waterproofing is inextricably linked to a quality watch. That is why all Prisma watches are water resistant. Of course there are many different grades in watertight. Some watches only make contact with water during hand wash or a rain shower, so 3 ATM is sufficient.
5 ATM water resistant is also working fine for taking showers, although we never recommend to make contact with water when you are wearing a leather strap. A step up is 10 ATM water resistant, which you can swim with. Prisma also provides watches with 20 ATM and even a deep diving watch with 100 ATM (1000 meter of pressure). All Prisma watches have been tested for water tightness in a laberatorium.
Thanks to this unstoppable urge to always seek for the best, Prisma has become a well-known watch brand in The Netherlands and abroard.
