The Tangramatic 39a was a successfully funded watch on Kickstarter that had all the forum a buzz. The watch brand was founded by Frances del Mundo also known as Bombfish on WUS. The Sydney, Australia based company has had great success with their Kickstarter campaign and the watch can now be purchased directly to the consumer.


Miyota cal.9015 (automatic & hand-wind),
Sapphire crystal single-domed watch glass,
Anti-reflective coating (underside only),
Art deco-style 316L stainless steel case,
Water resistance of 100m / 10ATM / 330ft,
C1 Superluminova on hour markers, black Luminova on hands,
Date window at 6 o’clock,
Engraved, solid, screw-down case back,
Push-pull crown







The Tangramatic 39a comes in three dial types, the white Bauhaus reviewed here, the blue Nautilus, and brown California dial. Each of the watches have their own personality and stand out from the usual stuff you find on Kickstarter. The watch is a great size for almost any man with a 39mm case diameter without crown, 20mm lug width, 45mm lug to lug, and 12mm high at the peak of the crystal. I found the white dial Bauhaus great as a formal wear item while the other two dials to be more casual in style. The company also has an amazing black Penta pilot watch to round out the collection.



The Tangramatic 39a is powered by the Micro-Brand favorite movement, the Miyota cal.9015. The Miyota 9015 movement is better than the workhorse ETA 2824 and is comparable to the ETA 2892. Some have mention the rotor noise on the 9015 movements, but I have not noticed this at all with the Tangramatic that I’m reviewing. Tangramatic gives you many choices of straps from Nato straps, Genuine leather strap and steel mesh bracelet. You can buy the straps directly from Tangramatic for $15-$20. Tangramatic has you covered for changing the look of the watch with a great selection of strap choices.


The Tangramatic is one cool retro watch with modern appeal. I compare the Tangramatic 39a very favorably to one of my favorite dress watches, the Tissot Le Locle. The beautiful dial, automatic movement, and fresh and unique design gives it a permanent place in my watch rotation. The Tangramatic can be dress up or down with your wardrobe selections and would look good with a polo shirt, blazer or suit. The Tangramatic gives you a luxury feel without breaking the bank at less than $500. I can’t wait to see what Mr. del Mundo has in store for us next with Tangramatic as the first watch hit a home run.

Chevall Watches is a new brand out of Ljubljana, Slovenia trying to get funding for their first watch. The Chevall Watch was created by two Architecture students that know about design and aesthetics. The unique feature of the Chevall Watch is that you can interchange the appearance using the THE INSERT SYSTEM.

The Insert System has 6 notches on the inner side of each case, the negative of the notches is on the insert. This ensures that the insert fits perfectly in the case, and by that also makes sure the case doesn`t move around. On the top of the case lies a silicone ring, that, when the insert is inserted into the case, creates a vacuum, holding it firmly, therefore unable for the insert to fall out.

The ease of changing appearance will appeal to those that hate changing straps and scratching the lugs. Chevall Watches is available now on Kickstarter for a pledge starting at $199.

Alberta Watch is an affordable timepiece now available on Kickstarter. The watch features a Quartz Miyota 2115 movement, 50M Water Resistance, 41mm case, Mineral Crystal glass, lumed hours and hands, and easy to replace battery with a snap case.

I think the easy to replace case is a nice feature since taking it to the mall will cost you $10-$15 for them to replace the battery. The watch comes in a classic design with two dial choices of blue or green and two standard straps in black or brown or optional Saddlemaker strap.

The watches are available for as little as $50US early bird(currently $65) and would make a nice gift for yourself or someone else.
