We love Kickstarter projects and this one should appeal to anyone who loves a skeleton movement, or a striking green dial.
Both are features of the SOVRYGN Successor model, which comes in automatic or quartz formats. Miyota power for the auto and there’s nothing wrong with that. The steel case features a sapphire crystal plus a sapphie see-thru caseback on the auto model, plus some nice superlume detailing. There’s a slightly square shaped quartz model with gold painted/plated case too.
The skeleton dial features a map of Nigeria, which is the home country of the SOVRYGN founder and the dial plate is made from carbon fibre. Leather straps or steel bracelets are available. There are also multi-buy options and discounts on the Kickstarter page too. It’s a novel twist on the Indie watch format, although some details don’t look that well finished to us, like the screws on the caseback for example. Just a minor detail, but they would look better set flush into the caseback, not indented.
The bottom line however is that the automatic SOVRYGN costs just £230 or therabouts, depending on the Canadian dollar exchange rate. That isn’t a bad price for a brand new automatic that looks as tasty as this one with see-thru features from both sides of the case. More details here, still four weeks to go on funding and delivery due in March 2021.
