Admittedly, T2/01 does sound like a dinosaur. However it has nothing to do with any prehistoric creatures. Instead it is a watch from SevenFriday that conquers wrists due to its rather appealing size.
When Dan Niederer and Arnaud Duval founded SevenFriday in 2012, their first models, the P-series, had a diameter of 47 millimeter which set the standard of the young and fun-driven watch brand. You want a large and colorful watch? You get a SevenFriday. However the 47 millimeter SevenFriday now has a younger sibling that looks as if it runs faster than its older brother.
The launch of the T-series introduces a lighter, thinner and more compact case design that measures 45 millimeter. This watch had my full attention once I fitted it onto my wrist while visiting the recently opened SevenFriday Retreat in sunny Tuscany.
This particular version, in colors that matches old series Land Rovers and waxed Barbour jackets, offers a very intersting and somewhat 3D skeletonised dial thanks to the semi transparent acrylic dial which is made from gradient optical lenses (which happens to be used on the Tiny sunnies, another product from SevenFriday).
The watch itself offers the known SevenFriday design of a polished stainless steel two-piece case with hardened mineral crystal glass and is fitted on a rather nice green canvas strap.
The caseback is not an openstyle caseback offering a look to the movement. Instead it offers the Near Field Communication (NFC) chip technology that helps authenticating a SevenFriday watch via a dedicated app. A technology that has been offered by the watch brand since 2015.
The automatic movement, calibre NH70, is manufactured by TMI (Seiko) and offers a power reserve of approx 40 hours when fully wound and price is CHF 808.
