Today i want to introduce a new model on Kickstarter by Mas Watches Microbrand!
Matthew and Son (MAS) Watches was started in 2019 by Matthew Francis, a watch enthusiast and father who shares his love of watches with his young son, Tate.
With a passion for the aesthetics and engineering of wrist-watches, MAS seek to design and produce unique, attainable pieces in a style that appeals to novices and watch enthusiasts alike.
MAS successfully funded the ‘Irukandji’ diver and ‘Tiny Time Tool’ accessory on Kickstarter in 2019, and the ‘JCB’ dress watch in 2020.
They are now developing several new concepts, and currently have an active campaign on Kickstarter for their ‘Arcticus’ field watch, HERE.
Following the success of the ‘Irukandji’ diver, the ‘JCB’ dress piece, and the unique ‘Tiny Time Tool’ accessory, Matthew & Son (MAS) Watches are pleased to return to Kickstarter and introduce their third timepiece release, the ‘Arcticus’ field watch.
Inspired by the natural beauty, incredible wildlife, and pioneering spirit of adventure that make Australia such a fantastic and captivating part of the world!
Mas watches microbrand Arcticus model – details
This watch is Powered by the high beat, Japanese Miyota 9039 automatic movement, and is built to withstand whatever adventures you throw at it!
With a full 316L stainless steel case and bracelet construction.
Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective underside, and 150M of water resistance, the Arcticus kit packs an incredible punch!
MAS stand behind all of their watches with a 2 year warranty, and the Arcticus is no different.
Made from solid 316L stainless steel, and brushed to perfection, the 40mm Arcticus case was purpose-designed to not only meet the design brief for our Australian tool watch, but also to achieve the highest levels of wearability and comfort.
At just 11mm total height, the dimensions of the Arcticus are compact, particularly when you consider the depth offered by the beautiful, highly legible sandwich dial.
The lugs are also pitched at a slope, diving down to meet the wrist, and keeping the lug-to-lug measurement to a very wearable 47mm, which is suitable for most wrists.
The lug width is 20mm, allowing an almost endless range of strap options for this absolute strap monster!
Caseback creativity has become a real hallmark for the MAS brand.
With their Irukandji diver and JCB dress pieces both receiving incredibly detailed, bespoke designs on their reverse, and that same commitment to detail has carried through to the Arcticus.
Coal Black and Burnt Orange dials are partnered with a ‘Death Adder’ caseback:
Glacier Blue and Blizzard White dials are partnered with an ‘Ice Fragments’ caseback:
Lume is applied generously to the lower level, interacting well with an already very legible dial, to ensure that low-light time-telling is a breeze.
