OK, I hear you say, I never knew it went away. But in the world of Indie watch manufacturing most smaller companies invest in a production run, sell the stock and then figure out if it’s worth placing another order. Obviously the tartan strap Knoydart was a hit for Kartel and so this chunky 43mm chronograph is back on the website.
Inside is a Miyota auto movement, so you have that reliability factor baked in.
Priced at £205, it also helps save the oceans by recycling some recovered plastic waste into that tartan strap material. The black Milanese metal bracelet variant is £215.
Here’s the word from Kartel;
The Knoydart watch is the new star in Kartel’s crown, the 43mm case Chronograph watch is a major addition to our range, adding a new functionality with its stopwatch, and a stunning dial design capturing the essence of Kartel.
