MVMT Blacktop Range Launched

OK, we know that MVMT watches are a fashion brand and there’s lots of debate on You Tube regarding their quality. NWC mag hasn’t tested one, but if we did, then the new Blacktop range might be a good choice. The dial colours include two shades of blue, green, white and black. We like the…

Thanks robots, please don’t become self aware. It has the backlight. It has the stopwatch and the alarm functions….
