The Formex Essence FortyThree combines both elegance and engineering in equal measure. The distinctive angular case and crisp dial are instantly recognisable as part of the Formex portfolio and epitomises what the brand is known for – high end precision manufacturing and uncompromising quality.

As with all Formex watches the Essence FortyThree is finished to the highest standard. The 100m water resistant case is made from brushed steel accented with hand-finished polished chamfers. The dial is available in multiple colours, including a dégredé finish, and the striking horizontal lines are individually CNC machined in order to achieve the sharpest angles. What’s more, the bevels of the hands and indices are polished to a mirror finish and are filled with BGW9 Super-LumiNova to ensure superb legibility.

The watch is powered by a Chronometer-certified Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement with a power reserve of 38 hours. This is Sellita’s highest grade movement, so it features a Glucydur balance wheel which is resistant to deformation, magnetic forces, and corrosion. It has also been COSC-certified, so it is accurate to -4/+6 seconds per day. The movement is embellished with thermally blued screws and Formex’s propriety skeletonized rotor, all visible through the sapphire crystal case back.

The Essence FortyThree also features some of Formex’s signature technical features. The watch uses their patented Case Suspension System which protects the watch’s movement and improves the comfort for the wearer. Meanwhile, the steel bracelet features both a quick-release system, and a micro-adjustable clasp. Both of which can be done by hand.

Why This Watch?

  • The striking 43mm case of the Essence FortyThree makes a bold statement on the wrist without being too large.
  • The Formex range benefits from highly contemporary design which is thoroughly unique and equally at home at work or scaling a mountain.
  • If you plan to use the watch in an extreme environment the patented anti-shock system offers unprecedented protection to the movement.
  • Essence straps and bracelets can be changed without the use of tools. Both the proprietary carbon fibre composite folding clasp on the leather and rubber straps and the steel bracelet offer patented ultra-fine adjustment systems.

About The Brand

Established in 1999 by two Swiss brothers as an independent watch manufacturer, with family roots in high-end watch manufacturing, the team developed platforms to exceed industry standards with newly developed smart engineering features. Fuelled by a passion for watches, the brand name and ethos derive from the unique shapes generated by all forms of extreme sport, whether on land or sea, i.e., Forme Extrème (extreme shape).

Formex’s uncompromising watch range covers the needs of most watch enthusiasts whether you require an uncomplicated, ultra-modern, chronometer for a black-tie event or a rugged dive watch for timing during intense sport or adventure.
