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.
