Xiaomi doesn’t make watches itself. All of its products are manufactured by its eco-chain subsidiaries. So it turns out besides the Mi Band series products, you won’t find anything from the wearables category that carries the brand name of Xiaomi. On the other hand, any watch coming our way from its sub-brands is under the control of Xiaomi. The same is true for the newly announced TwentySeventeen Light Mechanical Watch. The product isn’t exactly manufactured by Xiaomi but is manufactured by Shenzhen Micro-intelligence Co. Ltd with the best of quality standards. It’s a mechanical watch, which means Xiaomi has deviated from the path accepted recently. We are talking about the hybrid watch of the Mijia Quartz Watch. But this is not the first attempt to make a mechanical watch. As you remember, there also has been the CIGA series models. Well, the TwentySeventeen is a great watch with many amazing features. So the required $117.99 is quite affordable.
The mechanism of clock TwentySeventeen is imported from Japan and includes one automatic winding thanks to the kinetic energy, which allows a continuous use for more than 40 hours, in case the watch was never shaken.
The mechanical parts are manufactured using durable parts. The lens is made of sapphire glass, which is wear and scratch-resistant. The company equally utilized a blue-coating process to prevent glare and fingerprint stains. The case has a diameter of 4O mm and a weight of 62 grams, made of 316L stainless steel.
The TwentySeventeen Light Mechanical Watch adopts a classic and elegant design, derived from the Nordic Western tradition, with a case thickness of only 11 mm, inside which are placed the three needle hands (hours, minutes and seconds) and a date for the days. No number but only the notches of the hours in relief on the bottom in black or white. The dial has a built-in window for the calendar date. The crown comes with a gear-type design and a transparent large back cover that allows you to feel the unique rhythm of the mechanical watch.
The TwentySeventeen Light Mechanical Watch comes with a nice calfskin on the outer part. It is reinforced by an impermeable layer of sweat that prevents corrosion. The strap can be replaced easily. Furthermore, the Twentyseventeen Light Mechanical Watch supports 5ATM waterproof level, meaning it can be worn in the rain or while washing your hand.
