Thomas Earnshaw Grand Calendar Watch Review! (ES-8043-02)

by birtanpublished on August 29, 2020

Hey what's up everyone to be a snubber here back with another watch review on your screen right now is the Thomas Earnshaw grand calendar now Thomas Earnshaw was a pretty famous old watchmaker that made luxury and very high quality watches this isn't the same

Thing this is just a company that has bought the name and started producing cheaper watches this one's about three hundred and fifty US dollars it's definitely no Rolex it's no it's no Amiga it's it's no longeing it's a

Modern Thomas Earnshaw and what is a modern Thomas Earnshaw well let's take a look so in terms of the specifications I grabbed them off their website one weird thing is that they don't show very much in terms of the specification so you

Have to do some guessing which I've done and those guessing's are probably not going to be 100% correct but here we go it's from the collection grand calendar and the specific model in that collection is called the es – 804 3 – OH

– the movement is automatic it has three hands with four complications those being the day the date the month and a 24-hour indicator so right off the bat it's a complicated watch the case is stainless steel its diameter is 41

Millimeters the cases thickness is 13 millimeters so it's not a very thick watch the case color is stainless steel however this model is also available in gold rose gold as well the dial color is called silver white but it's also

Available in some other colors on their website and the band color is black it's also available with a brown leather the strap is a buckle strap it's water resistance is 5 atmospheres so that's 50 meters do not swim or shower with it and

The bandwidth is 20 to 18 millimeters it weighs 100 grams and you get 2 years of international warranty now the weird thing with this spec sheet is they don't show you what movement it is the movement does look really cool from the

Back however I'm sure that it's a mass-produced cheap movement with nothing special really and also they don't tell you which kind of glass there is it is mineral though so scratches can get

On there pretty easily if you bump into something or job the watch or something so be be careful with that so let's do an overview the watch face is very complicated because it has a lot of complications and the skeleton look and

What are complications well complications are anything in a watch that is not telling the time this particular one has a set before the 24-hour indicator the weekday the date the month and the 24-hour indicator the

Skeleton looked basically means it doesn't have a dial that is 100% white or 100% black it's actually transparent so you can see a bit of the automatic movement from behind which looks like a skeleton basically but that makes it a

Lot more complicated in terms of just looking at the time it's got rose gold colored hands they are very thin the crown can of course be used for winding the watch and a weird thing with the crown is if you look from the side it's

Blue for some reason I don't know it looks weird but that's the way it is the case is polished stainless steel with a lot of shine it is water-resistant to 5 atmosphere which is not okay for showering or swimming it has glass on

The backside to show the movement which does look nice but as said before it's just a cheap mass-produced movement so nothing sentimental about that the leather band feels and looks pretty fitting over the watch so you easily

Forget that you're wearing it now with that said let's take a look at the pros and cons pros it's very dressy so if that's what you're after that's a big pro and it does have many features in an automatic watch for just 350 US dollars

It's very cool to see so many complications in a watch that is both automatic and not so expensive at the same time the leather band feels like it's of quality it has a nice feel to it and it will probably hold up very well

So cons it's got mineral glass which means it's not scratch proof it's kind of hard to read the time because the hands are so thin and because the dial is so complicated so if what you're after is just a

Utilitarian look where you can just easily see the time this is definitely as far as you can get away from that the movement is nothing special it's mass-produced it isn't you know the most cool movement there is out there it's

Just a normal automatic movement with four complications which still is pretty cool another con is the weird blue dot on the crown I don't know why it is there however it is and there's nothing to do about it it's just a weird blue

Spot on the crown for some reason next up is no waterproofing which doesn't really matter anyway because you have a leather band on it which which is also not waterproof so it's also a dress watch so you should not be swimming with

It anyway however it is good to know that this watch will probably die if you decide to go snorkeling or diving or anything like that with it which you shouldn't do anyway another con is that because of its very many complications

And just in general because it's an automatic movement the service costs will be pretty high and that's not very easy to chew on when the wash itself only costs about three hundred and fifty US dollars I'm guessing if you have this

Watch for like ten years you're probably going to spend about 150 US dollars on just service costs many watches in this price point decide to go for quartz movements instead because they are so cheap to service it is

Pretty cool to have a mechanical watch on your wrist though instead of you know some normal quartz movement that's basically just a computer the next con is that there is no loom at all which means reading the time in the night is

Impossible next up is the wash is not accurate compared to quartz it's gonna run at least plus minus 10 seconds per day versus like 20 seconds per year on quartz and at this price point they should have just chosen quartz in my

Opinion so as a conclusion if you are after a very dressy watch with features that start conversations but don't really care about the actual quality of the movement waterproofing scratch proof glass etc I think this Thomas Earnshaw

Watch is a pretty good by so thanks for watching if you've got any questions please do leave those in the comment section down below and I'll catch you guys in the next video peace
