3W Dreiwerk watches Microbrand

Today I want to present you a new German microbrand called 3W Dreiwerk and based in Dresden.

The priority of this microbrand is the demand for maximum aesthetics in the smallest space and the personal expression of an individual lifestyle.

3W – Dreiwerk means = change 3 parts and change your whole personality.

The modular system of the watch case allows a combination of different materials and colours. “titanium, stainless steel, gold, silver or even wood can be varied and combined without having to buy a completely new watch”.

The modular change system has a registered European Patent also.

So Dreiwerk offer you a symbiosis between technical tradition and the possibility of your personal customization.

The special thing about dreiwerk watches is the idea of ​​using only naturally treated wood.

No chemicals are used in the processing of the watches, as is known from brands such as holzkern.

The wood is preserved with the help of natural oils in a complex vacuum process and then finished by hand.

In this way, the charm and the uniqueness of the wood are retained.

Each piece is unique. No resins or chemical hardeners.

This is the watchmaker personal contribution to protecting the climate, but also to protecting the buyer.

No skin irritation or chemical influences.

Satori Watches

Today is time to take a look to a new microbrand called Satori Watches and to their first collection The companion collection!

These timepieces take inspiration by adventure and self-discovery.

The companion collection is inspired by the iconic Field watch and the watch features minimal complications with precision time-telling.

Satori watches has made a highly versatile timepiece and these watches are light on the wrist and designed to be ergonomic for everyday wear but can easily transition to complement every occasion, created to take you from work to a weekend expedition.

The companion collection – inside the watch

Unlike the classic microbrands this watch is powered by the famous Swiss Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement with 38 hours of power reserve.

This movement features second hacking for precise time-telling and hand-winding for on-the-go moments.

Despite we are talking about a microbrand, the presence of this movement is a step forward in comparison to classic Kickstarter watches.

Companion watch is recognizable yet innovative in its design, it features an eye-catching bezel with faceted detailing that creates a visual impact.

The case is a robust 43mm diameter, fully machined marine-grade 316L Stainless Steel, measuring 46mm Lug-to-Lug and completed with a sleek bead-blasted Satin effect.

This collection is divided into four distinctive dial colourways, for tonal styling, discreet Covert Black and a contemporary Metropolis White, for the expeditioners the Forest Green and Marine blue.

I also really like the caseback and the choice of use a screw-down is really good because as we are talking about a famous swiss movement we don’t need to see it.

Also the clasp and the crow have the “S” Satori logo. Really nice!

Why buy?

The main reason i suggest this microbrand is because of their choices, starting from the movement and caseback.

There is a nice color option and I enjoy the satin finish of the case.

Personally, I tried the green version and the color looks better live than in the photos and the green is fun and powerful!

The product is really good for the price especially if you get it on Kickstarter.

Also if you like the steel bracelet this is plus increasing the versatility.

Monro Adventure

Today i want to present you a new special travel watch that will be soon on Kickstarter and it’s called the Monro Adventure made by Monro Design Studio LtdTM.

This timepiece is designed for function, form, longevity & comfort and the cost is under 199£ so we are talking about a very affordable watch.

The Monro Adventure is a watch made for people who love to travel and is robust enough to withstand all the environments a global adventurer would experience.

As we are talking about a travel watch, this timepiece could not only show a second timezone for whichever destination is next on the itinerary but is able to calculate it across the 24 timezones of the world.

The Monro Adventure is caracterized by a 44m solid stainless steel 316L case with polished finish and Swiss Ronda 515.24H movement.

It is available in different colors options:

  • MA-1 URBAN BLACK
  • MA-2 DEEP SEA BLUE
  • MA-3 SUNSET ORANGE
  • MA-4 WOODLAND GREEN
  • MA-5 URBAN BLACK X

Monro Adventure – attention to the details

This travel watch has a lot of different very well thought details like the Crown grips, for example, match the forward motion design of the bezel and have a coloured logo according to the function they control.

At 4 o’clock the colour matches the GMT hand and at 2 o’clock the colour matches the world city ring.

The concentric aperture in the minute hand allows the hour hand to be visible at all times while the GMT hand, inspired by the location pin drop of their logo, is finished in a contrasting colour to the dial for clear reading of the second timezone.

The case itself has been perfectly considered for comfort and strap change flexibility with the curved loop style lugs providing excellent wearability.

Also the complexity of the case requires precision CNC manufacturing with the inovative lug system finished by hand.

Lugs themselves also allow for the more rugged 44mm bezel diameter to appear smaller on the wrist.

The case back has been designed to incorporate a GMT scale to help determine which months of the year require you to make calculations based on daylight savings.”

Monro Adventure – the packaging

Another interesting detail about this timepiece is the packaging, really simple but at the same time very original and consists on it’s own travel passport.

Encased in a FSC approved, recycled paper box in a rich burgundy leather grain finish with silver foiled detail, the case and two straps are securely fitted in a soft black eco-friendly EVA material ensuring complete protection for its Adventure.


Monro Adventure – specifications

  • 44m solid stainless steel 316L case, polished finish.
  • Swiss Ronda 515.24H movement.
  • Urban Black galvanic dial with red GMT hand.
  • Black ceramic uni-directional rotating bezel. Bi-directional rotating world city ring. Tri-luminosity for function clarity.
  • Sapphire glass.
  • 100m water resistance.
  • 1x Black NATO style rubber strap.
  • 1x Black & grey NATO style nylon strap.

Monro Adventure – Why buy?

This travel watch has a lot of features and for 199£ you can’t find something more special than this timepiece.

Of course we are tallking about a very affordable watch so you can’t expect an automatic movement but the Monro Adventure is powered by the Swiss Ronda 515.24H movement, so a good quality movement.

TOOL WATCH CO. Microbrand

Today i want to present a new microbrand that i just discovered!

This new microbrand is TOOL WATCH CO. and has just developed a new interesting timepiece, the Arctic!

The Arctic is a robust, technical timepiece designed for accuracy and legibility, drawing
inspiration from the adventurous spirit of the early polar pioneers.

This new watch will be launched through Kickstarter on 2 November 2021.

The Arctic is a refined 38mm titanium, field-style watch for men and women and will be
available in 3 versions; the Signature Series blue meteorite dial, the Limited Edition black
meteorite dial, and the One of Ten white/grey meteorite dial.

The Arctic One of Ten is limited to ten units worldwide, and owners of this exclusive timepiece will have the option to work with Tool Watch Co’s design team to personalize their case back engraving.

Tool watch co. INSPIRATION

Tool Watch Co. takes inspiration seriously in its design process. Every aspect of their watches,
from colour choice to their components is thoughtfully considered.

The choice of the natural meteorite dial represents Greenlands Hiawatha Glacier – the first meteorite impact crater ever discovered under Earth’s ice sheets.

Cutting and finishing a meteorite dial requires time and skill.
Each Arctic dial is made from a solid slice of the Muonionalusta meteorite (found north of the
Arctic circle), and treated to bring out its natural crystalline pattern.

Swiss Super-Luminova GradeA BGW9 lume is used on the signature hour and minute hands, Arctic hunting-tool seconds hand, and dial indices for exceptional low light legibility.

They have developed a specific dial text methodology that will carry through to further models.
About the model designation sits at the top of the dial, and the subtext below acts as a summarised spec sheet of the core attributes of the watch in line with their tool watch aesthetic and the DNA of tool watches in general.

MOVEMENT

Tool Watch Co. has chosen Sellita’s SW200 to power the Arctic, a premium Swiss movement
known for its precision, accuracy, and reliability. Tool Watch Co’s choice tin using Sellita’s Swiss
movements is influenced by using watch movements that resonate with the region of inspiration,
in this case, northern Europe.

Luxury brands that use Sellita movements include IWC, Tag, Hublot, and Breitling.

CASEBACK

The case back features an original engraving of a polar bear on Tool Watch Co’s signature pattern,
symbolic of the harsh environment and enduring spirit of the Arctic.

STRAPS

Each Arctic will include a Saffiano strap, drawing on the heritage of using leather straps in cold
conditions, and a signature in-house designed titanium h-link bracelet. Watches and h-link
bracelets use HV1200 scratch-resistant coating. A half-link will be included with each bracelet so
customers can size it perfectly.

PACKAGING

They have engineered their packaging using environmentally-friendly foam. It is non-toxic,
lightweight, impact-resistant and, 100% recyclable. Its core purpose is to offset the CO2
generated by shipping heavier items of the same size and reducing non-recyclable waste.

a difference, especially in a marketplace saturated with greenwashing.

by producing premium and sustainable items.

They are committed to finding sustainable solutions to wasteful production by incorporating overstock leather in their straps and recyclable materials to emphasize durability and an extended lifespan.

Jack Turner Watches Microbrand

Today i want to present you the Jack Turner Watches Microbrand!

Some really interesting watches my friends!

Today we take a look to the traveller military pilot watch.

Jack Turner Watches Microbrand – a special pilot

The second hand of the traveller is perfect for precision timekeeping and the white Arabic numerals are easy to read. 

Silent sweep movement guarantees that all you notice is the good looks and timekeeping properties of this handsome watch.

It is powered by the Seiko VH31 sweep second movement that was introduced in 2018.

This movement is unique because the sweeping hands beat four times per second creating the fluid appearance of an automatic watch but with quartz precision and reliability. 

The black dial has two separate disks, one atop the other, that holds luminescent materials in the recessed indexes that show through the cutouts in the top layer thus creating the watch’s wonderful luminescence effect.

This clever sandwich effect is usually only seen on high-end divers watchers. 

The bottom dial on The Traveler Watch has recessed numerals and indices while the top dial is carved out to reveal a beautiful green Super-LumiNova® coating which ensures the ability to see in the dark out in the field or anywhere that you happen to be.

Offering up to ten times more brightness than other zinc-based luminous phosphorescent material this technology is normally reserved for luxury watches at much higher price points. 

You will also enjoy a sapphire glass crystal that contains 9 Mohs of mineral hardness which makes it resistant to scratches during normal use.

Of course, it is not impossible to scratch the crystal but it is very difficult although not impossible for scratches to result after rubbing up against a stone or concrete wall for example. 

This watch is in limited supply, only 150 pieces of this watch will be produced pre-order. Order now to lock in the pre-order, discounted price.

These watches should be available for shipping the first week of April 2021.

BOLDR Venture Field Medic Titanium Watch

Today i want to present you the Boldr Venture Field Medic!

Three watch-lovers decided to combine efforts to produce a medic-friendly chronograph watch that can be used to measure pulse rates and respiratory counts of patients.

Utilizing the ‘Venture’ model of Singapore-based watch manufacturer BOLDR Supply Company, the watch is available for pre-order today, with a fixed amount of proceeds going towards multiple COVID-19 relief funds.

The BOLDR Venture Medic Field utilizes an ultra-tough & super light 38mm titanium case, powered by a Japanese Chronograph movement.

The watch face is shielded by a flat sapphire crystal lens and has clearly marked indexes and specific pulse-tracking functionalities.

BOLDR Venture Field Medic

It is highly durable with water resistance up to 200m, so there’s no need to worry about impact damage or getting it wet while washing hands. 

Inspired by the brave and selfless healthcare community on the frontlines of COVID-19, this special edition Venture is a medic-friendly chronograph watch that can be used to measure pulse rates and respiratory counts.

The BOLDR Venture Medic Field utilizes an ultra-tough & super light 38mm titanium case, powered by a SII VK64 Mecaquartz Chronograph movement.

The watch face is shielded by a flat sapphire crystal lens and has clearly marked indexes and specific pulse-tracking functionalities.

It is highly durable with water resistance up to 200m, so there’s no need to worry about impact damage or getting it wet while washing hands.

BOLDR Venture Field Medic

The combination of the Venture’s ultra-tough features with a pulsometer and respiratory scale gave birth to the concept of a ‘Field Medic’ watch.

Built for healthcare workers and watch enthusiasts in general, make the most out this tough tool watch while doing your part in giving back for a good cause.

The mechanics are simple – easily count off heart and respiratory rates within a few seconds by using the precise graduated scales on the dial.

This saves valuable time compared to the traditional way. Pulse rates per minute are generally counted in a 15 or 30 seconds window; this watch uses a 30 seconds count as it gives a more accurate reading.

Simply activate the chronograph and count the specified number of beats, stop the chronograph at the corresponding mark, and take a reading.

The central seconds-hand will now be pointing to your required measurements in counts per minute. A clearly visible date window also saves precious seconds in the field, giving information at a glance while filling in pages of detailed notes.

Neumann Klockor Watches Microbrand

Today we are talking about a quartz watch that looks like an automatic, the neumann klockor watches microbrand !

My eye has been fooled by an image of a timeless watch that I have reconnected to an automatic movement. It is instead a quartz watch with swiss made movement!

The thing that impressed me most about this watch is its compactness and robustness given mainly by 3 elements: the quality of the 316L steel, the sapphire crystal with beveled edges and the quality of the leather strap that is really soft and fits very well on the wrist.

The watch conveys a feeling of quality that I have rarely seen in quartz watches.

Neumann Klockor Watches Microbrand – a good choice for a quartz

The numbers on the dial are clearly visible during the day (even if they are not luminescent, they become a bit difficult to read in the dark).

Obviously this type of watch is not designed to be worn at an elegant dinner but it is perfect for everyday life and any situation during the day and in your free time.

It is precise, comfortable and well done!

Remember you can have this watch with a 10% discount with the promocode mrwatch10 at check out on https://neumannklockor.se/
