Campanola Crazy at AZ Fine Time

The name Campanola derives from the region of Italy, Campania and the city that lies within, Nola.  The legend is, that this was the 1st place to ring a bell in order to mark the time.  Ironically, Campanola’s are not made in Italy, but Japan, by the finest craftsmen the Citizen Watch Company has to offer.

Citizen introduced Campanola as a very limited distribution, higher end, very high quality, hand made, quartz timepiece with tons of complications.  The distribution on these timepieces was incredibly small and the quantities produced are minimal. In fact, there are less than 20 dealers for them in the states and the serial numbers are still in the hundreds.  Unfortunately, Citizen USA has recently discontinued the brand (and I believe it is also disappearing in Japan).  But from this sad news, an amazing opportunity has arisen…

Campanola Timepieces

With Campanola no longer being available in the states, the guys at AZ Fine Time had to move quick on what was still available.  We were fortunate enough to get our hands on 5 different styles and bought everything Citizen USA had left in inventory.  We feel that these very boutique and under-rated watches are going to be incredible collectors items.  The value at full retail is incredible alone.  Where else can you find a timepiece of this complication, exquisite finish and unique design for such an amazing price?  You can’t.

If you take a close look at Campanola as a brand, you will find such features as perpetual calendars, alarms, chronographs, moonphases, and even minute repeaters!  While each style has different features, they are all hand built and hand finished quartz movements.  This gives the watchmaker the capability of inspecting everything thoroughly and assures everything leaves functioning perfect from the factory.  Aside from the beautifully crafted movement, the exterior of the watch is also exquisite.  The case is hand polished and has a very impressive finish.  The anti-reflective coated sapphire crystals are thick and domed, giving an immense amount of depth to the dial.  The dials themselves are also incredible.  Some are embossed sunburst, pin stripe or wave type patterns and others are hand lacquered all done by one lacquer craftsman.  The amount of detail you will find on these is uncanny.  There is much time, labor and love put into Campanola.  If you tried to find all of these great features in a mechanical watch, it could easily be well over $100,000 and it would more than likely have to be sent to the manufacture to be reset (which would take forever and also cost a fortune).  This is what makes Campanola so great!  Retailing from $2,000-$3,500 and not needing to be worn or wound to keep it going makes them incredibly valuable.  The watch only needs to be set once,  it will have accurate time, and will always know the appropriate day, date, month, year and leap year until the next battery change.  Very Impressive to say the least.
