For those who value legibility, Wenger offers a lot of it to appreciate. Note that the dial is an off-white cream color, with black providing excellent contrast, while sporty red highlights liven it all up. This model is limited to 1,393 individually numbered examples, so there is even some exclusivity appeal. At 42mm wide, the steel case has brushed and polished finishes and a sapphire crystal over the dial. Even the case back features sapphire crystal for a view of the movement, underscoring the Wenger Attitude Heritage Automatic Limited Edition’s value proposition with a retail price of $450 USD on the steel bracelet as shown here or $425 on a leather strap.

Wenger Attitude Heritage Automatique Replica Watch Hands-On

Wenger Attitude Heritage Automatique Replica Watch Hands-On Hands-On

The Wenger Attitude Heritage Automatique is an affordable, automatic mechanical timepiece from the Swiss pocket knife brand. Wenger and Victorinox Swiss Army were once rivals until the latter purchased the former. Wenger now exists as a slightly more affordable alternative to Victorinox Swiss Army products. Sure, there is some confusion, as they both produce replica watches and pocket knives – and in some instances their products might be confused for one another. At Baselworld 2018 Wenger debuted what I believe is their first modern mechanical timepiece with the Attitude Heritage Automatique priced around $400 USD. It also helps celebrate the 125th anniversary of the Wenger brand.

There is some important context to discuss in relation to showcasing this affordable “Swiss Made” mechanical timepiece. It exists entirely within the era of larger more established replica watch brands trying to compete with a host of relative newcomers offering a range of products directly to consumers, at prices which many of the traditional replica watchmakers have either neglected or entirely abandoned. Consumers have been trained that “luxury pricing” doesn’t always get you a good value proposition, so demands and expectations are changing. I would say that at least 30 brands I visited in the last year are focusing on pushing pretty decent products at prices historically low or unheard of at those brands. Of course, it depends on the company, but we are for the most part talking about well-made replica watches priced at about $3,000 and under.

Victorinox Swiss Army has their share of nicely-priced mechanical replica watches but I don’t think any of them are priced quite as low as the Wenger “Attitude” (as I will call it for short). Even at a modest price this is still a very capable tool replica watch with a handsome conservative style. It is also one of the rare, very legible light-colored dial sport replica watches out there. It also happens to be part of a limited edition so there is some exclusivity built into it. If you are in the market for a daily wear “field-style” sports replica watch, then I recommend you taking a good look at this new offering from Wenger.

The Attitude Heritage Automatique has a stainless steel case, which is 42mm wide and given a nice contrast finishing with both polished and brushed surfaces. The case is water-resistant to 100m and is topped with a sapphire crystal (not common for Wenger replica watches). As you can see, Wenger offers the Attitude with either a brown leather strap or a matching five-link style steel bracelet. For the price the overall case finishing and quality is better than a lot of other products available at this segment.

Those who appreciate good legibility will appreciate the dial of the Attitude. In fact, even though I see good value in a sober-looking sports replica watch, I’m still trying to determine where all this “attitude” is that the brand keeps promising in the name. Perhaps “sober and practical” is the particular attitude that this Wenger replica watch is actually trying to evoke.

The off-white dial has a cream color to it and is marked by large black-colored Arabic hour numerals paired with green Super-LumiNova elements. The sloped flange ring has a minute marker track and helps keep the entire dial feeling both deeper and less cluttered. The hands are very effective as well as attractive, in my opinion, and the dial also has a window for the date at 3 o’clock. Wenger isn’t pushing into new design territory with the Attitude Heritage’s dial, but it is offering a very effective and conservative look that will serve the wearer well for years and in a variety of situations.

For the movement Wenger opted for an undecorated Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic, which operates at 4Hz (28,800 bph) with about two days of power reserve. Most other automatic replica watches at this price point have non-Swiss movements, such as those from Japan. Nothing wrong with those, of course, but demand for Swiss movements continues to remain higher than Japanese movements. While Wenger isn’t alone in offering Swiss mechanical movements at this low price point, there isn’t a lot of competition with this assembly of parts. Smaller, newer brands simply don’t have the purchasing and manufacturing capabilities of a brand like Wenger/Victorinox Swiss Army. You can view the movement through the window on the rear of the replica watch.

Wenger will produce just 1,393 pieces in this limited edition collection of Attitude Heritage Automatique replica watches. It isn’t clear if that number is for both the references 01.1546.101 and 01.1546.102 or if the number is split between them. Price for these attractive and easy to own Wenger Attitude Heritage Automatique replica watches is $425 USD on the leather strap and $450 USD on the steel bracelet.

Wenger Nomad LED Compass Replica Watch Hands-On

Wenger showed me this pretty interesting gadget style replica watch that has an analog display, and a “stealth” LED display in the dial. It is their Nomad LED Compass replica watch, and has some interesting appeal. The basic replica watch without using the function is easy to read thanks to the large Arabic numerals and hands – both lume covered. The text around the dial might look a bit excessive, but makes it easy to understand what the replica watch does.  In addition to the time, it has a basic calendar display and a compass.

I believe that by pressing the “time” pusher it will show you the time via LED numbers. Not sure if that means you can have a second timezone there, but by default it shows the displayed time on the analog dial in digital form. There is a large PDF manual for the Nomad LED Compass replica watch on Wegner’s website that you can check out to learn all you like about the timepiece’s small details. When you press the “Day” or “Date” pushers you get to see that information on the dial. With LED displays, it is always ‘info on demand.” Due to the power drain of the lights, they only show up if you press the pushers. The same thing goes for the compass – which is likely the more gadgety part of the replica watch. Press the compass pusher and you’ll get the compass degrees on the dial, based on where the top of the replica watch is pointed.

The replica watch case is 43mm wide in steel. The version with the red text around the dial comes in a polished steel case, while two other versions (with yellow or green text) are also available. Those other two versions come in PVD black coated cases. All versions have black bezels though. Interestingly enough, the LED color in this version is red, but in the other two versions are green (which is rather neat).

In the replica watch is a specially designed Swiss quartz movement, and the case is water resistant to 100 meters. Crystal is mineral, but has that sapphire crystal “coating” that seems popular these days (actually, newer versions of the replica watch have the sapphire coated crystal, but some older ones might not). The strap is silicone, and has contrast stitching to match the color scheme of the dial. There are also versions available on metal bracelets. Overall the Nomad LED Compass replica watch ain’t half bad. It has a certain nostalgic “camper” quality to it, and the information layout is really straight forward. Some people get intimidated by the complex functions of say… a Casio Pathfinder, so it is nice to have techie timepieces like this that won’t require an expedition through the user manual first. While the Nomad LED Compass won’t do as much as a Casio Pathfinder, it does have a more classic look about it, an analog face, and Swiss character. Price for the red version with the polished steel case is $375, while the PVD coated models are a bit more at $400. Less online in many places, but you can buy direct from Wenger’s website.
