The rundown of autonomous watch brand-hopefuls continues to grow with another crowd-subsidizing section looking like Melbourne Watch Company. Melbourne and its founder, Sujain Krishnan are utilizing Indiegogo as the platform to back their first production watch, the Flinders Automatic.
Before venturing off on his journey to plan his own watch, Sujain ran Melbourne Custom Watches, a shop that made homage military and pilot style watches. The private venture ran for as long as year with enough accomplishment for Sujain to acknowledge he could extend beyond making other people’s plans and homages into his own image. One slight name change later and we have the Melbourne Watch Company and a first timepiece.
The Flinders is their first original plan and was named after Melbourne’s Flinders Street Station . For those inexperienced with the name Flinders Street Station is a railroad station in Melbourne that benefits the whole metropolitan rail network. Although named after a railroad, it isn’t carefully a rail route propelled plan. The Flinders Automatic has more of a dressy vibe to it, a contemporary-exemplary look, in the event that you will.
The 316L treated steel case is 40mm in width and has a tallness of only 9.8mm, which is a lovely thin profile. A sapphire precious stone on the front protects the guilloche dial in one or the other dark or white. Wiped out markers adorn the watch with an inside moment track of little hash marks. Coordinating the hour markers are a bunch of stick hands also, with a decorative M toward the seconds’ end hand. A sapphire gem on the back shows the Miyota 9015 movement which powers the watch. The Miyota has become a popular choice among numerous brands as it provides a more affordable and more accessible option over an ETA. The case back is gotten with six screws around the edge of the watch. The watch will come with a 20mm cowhide lash, a calfskin style show case and a 12 month producers warranty.
