Infantry Falcon: Customisable Military Style Watch

The concept of modifying your watch isn’t new, but it is surprising how few people try to alter the components of their watch once they have chosen the dial colour, strap, bezel, hands etc. True, handling watch parts and tools requires some skill, but even so, it’s often the case that once an Indie brand/MOD…

Kickstarter Watches: Axios Tribune, Automatic For The People

Axios has a new watch project on Kickstarter, which is fully funded already. The Tribune model is a slim 38mm dress watch, in a variety of dial colours. Very vintage themed, it also has a Horween type strap and a two piece dial, so the inner track really stands out. Here’s the word; “We’ve worked…

Kickstarter Watches: Get Your Motor Running

The famous Swiss made Jacob & Co Bugatti Chiron watch is a luxury item that really makes a statement. Two statements in fact. First, you have $280,000 lying around for a watch and secondly, you love engines – petrol engines, not electric motors. It is a tour de force of miniature engineering. But what about…

M Movement Subaqueo: Bronzed & Buffed For The Beach

M Movement have a new bronze dive watch on Kickstarer, which is fully funded already and good to go.

Yes, there is nothing so addictive to view as your fave automatic watch spinning like a politician explaining oligarch donations.

Here’s the word…

We had a heads up from Heron in Canada, who have a new 41mm wide, automatic model in the pipeline. It’s on Kick right now and fully funded already, with prices on pre-order starting at about £235 which is great value for the spec we think. More here. Here’s the press info; Héron is proud…

Vertigo Hippocampus: Super Lume & 300m Dive Ability

The Hippocampus is a crazy name for a watch, but a mythical sea creature is fine by us and you may well like the bright colours of this model, which Italian brand Vertigo has on Kick right now. Orange, blue and green fume dials really pack a punch and we like the chunky hour markers….

Kickstarter Watches: Big in Japan? Namica Says Yes

The great thing about Kickstarter is that it offers a democracy of ideas and design details. You can choose from a palette of inspiration, going back three centuries in watchmaking and then fuse some modern day touches in there. The result can be something bold and bright like this Shirahama dive model, by Namica Watches,…

Kickstarter Watches: Aision Tourbillon Looks Good Value

Tourbillon watches are fascinating to look at; that spinning wheel-within-a-wheel system in minature, whirling away. Great invention by Breguet, especially when you consider the limits of late 18th century technology when fabricating metal parts. So this project by HK based Aision is well worth a look if you fancy a tourbillon but don’t want to…
