Diesel Baby Daddy Chronograph Watch Review
I have always liked Diesel watches, and I started buying my first one about 15 years ago. This brand always stood with its designs which are bold, loud and funky. Nothing about traditional and heritage that you see with most of the Swiss time pieces. Looking at the current range of Diesel watches you come across names like “Diesel Gents Super Bad Ass Fashion Watch” I think that says it all. One of the best selling watch lines for Diesel are the Mr Daddy and Baby Daddy ranges. The Mr Daddy range is a monstrosity, it is huge, it is the Hummer of watches, I have never seen anything this big. It is a watch for the gangster that needs to know the time in 4 different time zones as it has 4 clocks on the face. As I have a very small wrist. I decided to go for the Baby Daddy range, don’t get me wrong there is nothing baby about this one as it is still big with a case size of 61 mm x 51 mm. I settled down on the gun metal looking Baby Daddy Chronograph watch the DZ7258.
The watch arrived in a nice white leather style box with a big Diesel Logo on it. Diesel always have very cool watch boxes each season. Inside was a leather style cushion with the watch strapped around it and a booklet with instructions. The instructions seems to be for a whole range of watches but it does not include this model. This could be a case of wrong booklet going with the wrong watch, no big deal as the watch was easy to operate. The watch looks huge in the box but it does not feel as heavy as I expected.
Using The Diesel Babby Daddy Watch DZ7258
It took me about 2 minutes to work out how this watch was working without the instructions. This watch is a statement piece, it has a gun metal coloured face plate with black printed numbers. The watch has 2 clocks on it. The first clock is a conventional one which has the date (the only thing in white) and 3 small dials on the face. The top of the small dial is a 24 hour dial, handy to know if it is day or night. The other 2 dials are for the chronograph which is operated by 2 push buttons on the right, the top one for stop / start and the bottom one for reset. The second watch is a rotating disc with 12 hours on it. It is a bit harder to read the exact time, it was more made to give you an idea of what time it is regarding other time zones.
I love the 4 screws that are on the front of the watch which give it a though look, fitting well with the overall bold and loud look. The side of the watch has a very nice texture which integrates well with the texture of the face plate. The back of the watch has the Diesel logo on it with the tag line Only The Brave. The strap is made of brown genuine leather and has a buckle at the end with the Diesel logo printed on it. Overall the watch has lots of different tones of grey and black, this makes reading the time a bit harder than usual, however you don’t wear this type of watch because you want to see the time quickly, or you are running and want to record your lap your time. This Baby Daddy is all about looks, and to me this looks like a Glock gun. This watch you wear because you want it to get noticed and after a few days of wearing it I have certainly received lots of attention.
