Let’s take a look to a new microbrand from France called Obelus Watches!
They are now live with a campaign on Kickstarter!
OBELUS has given a facelift to one of the most popular designs from the watchmaking history “Chronograph”, to create its inaugural watch model “OBELUS RETRO CHRONOSCOPE”, designed by an enthusiastic watch lover in Versailles (France).
OBELUS, as a micro watch brand, proposes a unique “Dressy / Sports / Coloured” style distinct from those available in the market.
The purpose is clear to share a passion in amplifying the heritage of the tool watch, while paying tribute to the timeless designs originated in the past.
Obelus Watches – a deep look
The first time a saw this watch I remember that I really like the concept of a really elegant chronograph but at the same time with a lot of color options and a good versatility.
This starting from the case to the dials.
You can see immediatly the attention for the details, with red and withe hands and numbers of the dial.
There are 2 type of case finish:
- 316L stainless steel polished and hand finished brushed
- 316L stainless steel with black DLC treatment,shot blasted
Abouy the dials there are 5 different color options for every mood/occasion.
Another interesting feature of this watch is the microseconds withe/red hands with also the 24h display with lunar/sun indicator at 3 o’ clock.
This is not a common feature on watches that are in this price range, so really good point!
The date at 6 o’ clock is really easy to find and read.

Obelus Watches – Why Buy?
Despite there are a lot of Microbrands that are making chronos I have to say that Obelus is probably one of the most interesting I ever write about on my site.
The ratio quality/price is really good for a mecaquartz chrono with Seiko Movement and with also a very fine leather straps, display with lunar/sun indicator and all these color options starting from the case with DLC treatment.
A really elegant timepiece that you can use everywhere.
