Brellum Pandial Black DLC
Brellum’s back with an update to their sporty Pandial chronographs, adding a sleek DLC coating to their exteriors. For those unfamiliar with the brand, Brellum emerged just a couple of years ago offering incredibly well-made, luxurious chronometer-rated Swiss-made chronographs for decent prices with their Duobox Chronos. The Pandial was a follow up to those, adding an external tachy-bezel and contrast sub-dials for a more racing-themed aesthetic. Now in black, the Pandial takes on a more aggressive attitude while maintaining its otherwise high-end aesthetic.
