While it is understandable that the Essence collections get a lot of attention from watch fans, Formex has some other collections that are definitely worth a second look. And one of the watches that caught my eye recently is the Element Automatic Chronograph.

One of the things that attracts people to the Essence range is the patented Case Suspension System, and you will find that in the Element Automatic Chronograph -
