It’s time to discover new watches on Kickstarter and today I want to present you the microbrand Fledderman von Rieste and their first timepiece!
This campaign will feature The Muncher, a Swiss Made small seconds dial watch and is now available on Kickstarter from today (May 1) for 60 days.
The May start of their campaign positions for delivery of production watches to backers by December of 2022.
The Muncher is a watch inspired by the Bavarian capital with an independent streak as strong as its economic might.
The residents of Munich have long enjoyed a harmonious existence with their surroundings, and take every opportunity to enjoy the natural beauty in and around their city.
The Münchner – discovering the watch
This watch has a 44mm polished medical grade stainless steel case.
Both case sides feature parallel lines representing the twin spires of the Frauenkirche, a defining feature of the old city’s skyline, and a foundation of the city for centuries.
The dial is where The Münchner stands apart from other watches.
The small seconds’ complication at the six o’clock position harkens to Munich’s independent streak.
The framed small seconds sub dial serves as a tribute to the famous city squares where Münchners come together. Like Munich and its residents, this watch does things its own way and on its terms.
This watch is super comfortable and three dial options are available:
Victory Blue – Charcoal or Antique Map
The centerpiece small seconds dial is protected by a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal featuring water resistance to 300 feet.
The heart of the Münchner is a Sellita SW260 series automatic self-winding movement, the SW260, born in the heart of Switzerland, features 31 jewels and an impressive 38-hour power reserve making sure you are always the master of your time.
Also the clasp of the watch is very elegant and Fledderman choose a very nice deployant option.
Fledderman von Rieste – Why Buy?
This watch has many features and I have to say that for the price and the movement that this microbrand is offering I totally suggest this timepiece, especially if you like Munich and you like this style of watch.
Despite we re talking about a dress watch, The Muncher is very versatile for different occasions!
