Today’s review is dedicated to quite interesting watch from German company Askania. Full name can be seen in the name of this article – Askania Festival of Light Limited Edition. Those are special timepieces, which come out for famous festival. We were quite lucky to be in main Askania shop and check this model closer, so here are photos and impressions. 🙂

First of all authors were thinking on how to underline connection with light and make watch special. I guess you all can know the right answer on what brings the light on our watchfaces in dark. Right, lume! Here whole dial is covered with it. After short exposure to the light it keeps green illumination in circular shape. You can see this effect on the photos and video. By the way, I recommend to check video, because it shows the actual size and fitment of this watch.
Askania Festival of Light Limited Edition – Simple Outside
As for other features – don’t expect something screaming, unusual and “in your face”. No, design here is quite calm and finished in classic style, which would look good in any occasion. Polished steel case, thin lugs (note that they are slightly bent for better fit) and leather strap (croco imitation?) work good together. I would say that’s a good-styled combination.
There is also transparent caseback with symbol of Festival, so that you can appreciate movement inside. Note that balance has some imprints as well, what creates two-layer appearance. Well, it’s also a bit difficult to read what is written there. 🙂 Small crown completes whole image and looks nice.
Well Askania Festival of Light Limited Edition should be produced in limited amount, so if you want one – you should hurry. Overall this is a nice and elegant watch for those who would like to have something special without screaming design. Yes, there are many rivals, so final choice is up to you of course.
