Xiaomi CIGA – Elegant and modern design
We are also aware that beauty is naturally in the eye of the beholder. And in our eyes the watch looks pretty awesome. Xiaomi opted for an openly visible clockwork in a square case with rounded corners. The clockwork is covered with sapphire glass on both sides. So you can see through the watch, which is particularly scratch-resistant thanks to the sapphire glass, if you don’t work with diamonds every day. Sand, keys and whatever else scratches normal glass will not worry you with this glass. It is also waterproof to ATM 3 and thus protected against water splashes.
As with so many other products, Xiaomi also advertises having received the German RedDot Award for its design.
The automatic movement with 21600 vibrations per hour winds itself automatically, only through the movements of the wearer’s arm. The power reserve, i.e. the time that the watch continues to run after winding, is indicated as 40 hours. If you always want the watch wound up, even if you only wear it occasionally, it’s best to buy a watch winder.
The watch is available in black and silver. In addition to the steel bracelet, there is also a black leather strap with which the watch weighs a total of 73 grams. The integrated spring makes it easy to change the bracelet.
Now it’s all about quality. There are hardly any reports about the new watch. But if Xiaomi remains true to itself and delivers a good product here, the price should also be justified. Then it all depends on whether you like the watch. How do you see it? Does the design appeal or does the CIGA mechanical watch not pass the style check?To the gadget
