Bossini Z-Gear B-623

Another different watch, and another different designer today on the blog.

My watch today is by the Hong Kong based fashion retailer Bossini. The Bossini brand was founded in 1987, selling casual wear and apparel for men, women, and children, and they have released a few different watch designs over the years. The company has over 1000 stores spread across 40 countries including Hong Kong, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Japan, Malaysia, Dominican Republic, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Kenya, and India (which is an interesting mix of locations).

This watch is part of a range called Z-Gear, and is a quartz analogue watch with an unusual case shape. It is a 3 hand dial designed watch, with no markings on the face apart from the bossini name (without a capital letter). The case is silver and gold, and has an unusual shape on the right side where the round shape of the rest of the watch is cut-off and has a design looking a little like a screwdriver or bottle opener. The tab that sticks put hides the crown, and is marked with a 'b' logo, with the bossini name is engraved on the other side of the face as well.

The watch came in a range of different colours, and this model has a dark red face and tan coloured leather strap. The back is etched such that it is split into 4 quarters, either having etched text on a shiny background, or an etched background with shiny letters. The back shows the bossini logo and Z-Gear name, along with the model number B-623. It also states that it is a quartz watch with stainless steel back, and is showerproof.

The watch isnt available anymore and so I'd guess a 90s or 2000s release, but I've seen the sales tag for one that showed an original rrp of ¥8,500.
