ENTER THE BERTUCCIUM

While Bertucci ® calls this watch the Super Yankee Illuminated , I like to refer to it as the “ ium ” watch . Perched towards the top of Bertucci ’ s series of “ Ultimate Field Watches ”, the Super Yankee design combines a lightweight , durable and hypo allergenic 44mm titanium Unibody ® case , a long life ( 10 year ) lithium battery , and finally the perpetually luminous tritium tubes on the dial and hands – Bertuccium !
Crafted with a larger 44mm version of the patented Unibody case , this is a robust but lightweight watch with a sapphire crystal on top and rated to 20atm underwater - as long as you remember to screw-down the crown ! Another area of intense focus for Bertucci is the straps . Made in the USA , his heavy-duty woven straps are crafted with a unique weave that makes them super tough yet still comfortable on the wrist , while the Heritage leather straps ( also made in USA ) are made from premium Horween ® leather and create a retro look to the same design .
Made to celebrate the 15th anniversary of Bertucci ’ s launch , the brand has once again succeeded in cultivating the military style to create another “ Ultimate Field Watch ”. Founder and owner of the Bertucci brand describes the process for the series ; “ For the A-4T Super Yankee Illuminated we wanted something simple and classic , but really complete in order create the quintessential field watch at a price point that makes it accessible and a great value ”.
Built to last and covered by a 3 year warranty , the Bertucci Super Yankee hits all the points for ergonomics and quality as the top-notch components come together to create a functional and rugged field watch that embodies the ethos of a functional “ gear ” watch that you can use and abuse and wear every day . Retail price is $ 445 on the web strap and $ 465 if equipped with the Heritage leather option . www . ultimatefieldwatch . com https :// ultimatefieldwatch . com / products / a-4t-super-yankeeilluminatedblack-nylon
