The term arena dates back to the Colosseum of Ancient Rome as the central area of this amphitheater, where gladiators fought rugged duels to their death. The term is derived from the Latin word Harena, meaning for a place of combat, originally a fine and smooth sand used to absorb blood that was shed during the gruesome competitions.
An arena is defined today as an enclosed area, either oval or circular in shape, used to hold sporting, musical or theatrical events. It is also defined as a sphere or scene of intense activity.
The new Elini Barokas Arena Chronograph debuting this week at WorldofWatches.com delivers the competitive edge for today’s man. This premium crafted men watch not only looks like an arena, it captures the fierce magnetism and heroic spirit of gladiators from Ancient Rome and also provides an exciting new intensity to the wrist.
The thoroughly modern contours are ultra-bold and masculine with a robust premium grade stainless steel case, finished in contrasting brushed and polished surfaces. A supple silicone strap with the Elini Barokas emblem embossed on both sides adds to the stylish appeal.
The intricate stationary bezel with raised square stamped detail encircles the multi-layered dial with 3, 6 and 9 Arabic numeral hour markers printed underneath the crystal, creating a three dimensional look.
The dial has an automatic date window, small-second and 30-minute sub-dials along with luminous hands and hour markers. Features include a scratch resistant Sapphitek crystal above the dial and premium Swiss-made quartz movement inside for precise time-keeping accuracy.
A screw-down case back provides water-resistance to 100 meters or 330 feet. The Elini Barokas Arena chronograph is 48mm in diameter and 14mm thick. Choose from models in stainless steel, black ion-plated stainless steel, rose gold-tone stainless steel and two-tone stainless steel.
