Blok 33 Wristwatch – Swiss-Made Kid-Proof Wristwatch for Children

Learning to tell time on an analog watch is an important skill to learn from a young age, with the best time to start being at the age of 5 or 6. With that said, having your children wearing their first wristwatch shouldn’t be a daunting experience. Instead, it should be a fun and exciting new experience in which they’ll be able to learn how to tell the hours of the day, and then the minutes of each hour. Now, when it comes to having your children wearing a wristwatch, it’s obvious that you should get them something that’s built to last and that’s also water-proof or at least water-resistant, because as we all know, the main concern on our kids’ mind is to play around and have fun. On that note, consider getting them the Blok 33 Wristwatch, which checks all those boxes, while also being specifically designed to help kids learn how to tell time.

The Blok 33 is a high-quality wristwatch for children that features a kid-proof construction, integrating a unique visual analog time management system that works based on a proprietary bi-directional rotating bezel that’s divided into 4 simple Timer “Bloks” to help kids learn about time management, plus an easy-to-read dial with detailed time markers that help kids learn to tell time, while also boasting a 10 ATM Water-Resistance Rating that makes it water-resistant up to 100m, as well as an ETA Swiss Quartz movement for its time-system that’s rated to have around 10 Years Battery.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at the Blok 33 Wristwatch and check out everything that this unique children’s wristwatch has to offer your kid(s).

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the watch’s size, know that the Blok 33 comes equipped with a unibody case that measures exactly 33-millimeters (33mm) in diameter, as the watch’s case was specifically designed to not only be suitable, but to also be perfectly proportioned for the ergonomic needs of a kid’s growing wrist.

Not only is this watch designed to perfectly support the natural growth of a kid’s body, but it is also manufactured with a kid’s comfort in mind, as it also comes equipped with a really soft 17mm run-thru wrist-strap that’s made of 100% recycled Danish woven polyester textile which comes solely from recycled bottles, while its wrist-strap’s lining is made of an antimicrobial polyurethane Japanese Alter-Nappa leather (i.e. a very high-quality thin antimicrobial leather liner).

The watch’s wrist-strap also features absolutely no clips, holes, or buckles, making it very simple to wear, as it just goes through a durable metallic buckle made of 316L Stainless Steel, and is then attached to a durable velcro fastening closure (made of nylon) that’s stitched onto the center of the watch’s wrist-strap, which makes this children’s wristwatch infinitely adjustable.

Thanks to that, the Blok 33 can ultimately fit a wide range of wrist-sizes and ages, with the recommended wrist circumference size ranging between 6 inches to 7.5 inches in diameter (150mm to 190mm).

Then, regarding its design, this kids’ wristwatch also features a modern and stylish design. For our review unit, we got the Aqua / Teal color-model, for which the wristwatch’s body comes in a beautiful, calming, and peaceful light-blue aqua color.

Stylish and modern design

On top of its comfort-focused and stylish design, the Blok 33 also features a kid-proof and eco-friendly construction that ultimately ensures this children’s wristwatch can last your kid(s) a long, long time.

That’s essentially thanks to its 33-millimeter unibody case, which is made of a plant-based Swiss nylon biopolymer that makes it quite sturdy and capable of easily withstanding the normal wear-and-tear that comes with a kid’s typical playing experiences.

Adding up to its ultra-durable construction, the watch also integrates a Screw-Down Crown made of 316L Stainless Steel, which basically perfectly seals the watch’s unibody nylon biopolymer case to be completely impenetrable, like any typical diving watch.

316L Stainless Steel Screw-Down Crown gives it a 10 ATM (100 meters) Water-Resistance Rating underwater

Thanks to that, the Blok 33 Wristwatch is also rated to have a 10 ATM Water-Resistance Rating, which basically qualifies this children’s wristwatch to be water-resistant underwater up to 100 meters (328 ft.) depth.

For its bezel, the watch comes equipped wtih a very sturdy bezel, as its bezel marquetry (meaning its internal circular piece) is made of 316L Stainless Steel, and then covered by a contrast fill for extra durability.

Furthermore, the watch’s bezel also integrates a high-grade glass cover lens made of Sapphire Crystal that’s 2mm thick, which is rated to be scratch-resistant.

As said before, this children’s wristwatch also features a unique visual analog time management system, as its bezel is designed to work as a proprietary bi-directional rotating bezel that’s integrated with a clever Timer Function. More specifically, its bezel comes divided into 4 simple Timer “Bloks” (hence the name of the watch and the name of the company behind it), for which the watch’s bezel can be rotated around to either side to count the time in blocks of 5-minutes, 10-minutes, 15-minutes, or 30-minutes, ultimately helping kids to learn about time management.

To top things off, the watch also comes equipped with an easy-to-read Embossed Brass Dial that’s integrated with detailed time markers (in the form of pad printed time-indexes and appliqués) which can help kids learn to tell time, along with a set of Brass Dauphine Style hands as its watch-hands.

Last but not least, for its time-system, the Blok 33 Wristwatch utilizes a high-grade ETA Swiss Quartz 3 jewel Movement with anti-shock that’s rated to have a time-accuracy of +/- 10 seconds per month of use, and around 10 years of battery life.
