A brother and sister team has just launched a new Chrono on Kickstarter. The watch is two years in the making a modern chronograph that is functional, aesthetically pleasing and at an accessible price. The pricing starts at $161 USD for the watch and is available now for preorder on Kickstarter.
The Watch features the Seiko VK67 Meca-quartz movement. The chassis is a 40mm 316L stainless steel or rose gold PVD. The watch also has Sapphire Crystal, Silver white or black dial and 20mm Genuine leather with stainless steel clasp and quick release. The watch has 5ATM or 50 meters water resistance and chronograph movement with hour and minute subdials.
Minuteman Watch Co. to date has released high quality quartz watches with a portion of sales going to charity. The company has announced it’s first automatic watch for those diehard enthusiasts who prefer automatics over quartz. The new line of watches will be assembled in the United States by highly skilled American watchmakers. Minuteman Watch Co. has been one of my favorite Microbrand watch company as they make high quality watches and give back to veterans.
The Minuteman Darby model will be offered in a choice of black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) as well as brushed stainless steel. Both versions will be constructed of 316L stainless steel.
The Minuteman Darby is named in honor of Brigadier General William O. Darby. General Darby is credited with bringing the Army Rangers back into existence in the United States during World War II. General Darby formed and commanded the1st -3rd – 4th Ranger battalions, and was killed in action near the very end of the war while serving as assistant Commander of the Tenth Mountain Division.
The Minuteman Gray Man The Minuteman Darby model will be offered in a choice of black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) as well as brushed stainless steel. Both versions will be constructed of 316L stainless steel.
The Gray Man name comes from a term used by many regarding Navy SEALs BUD/S training. “There is a saying in BUD/S: ideally you want to become the gray man. In other words, you become invisible, nobody notices you, because you do everything so perfectly that you never stand out.” The dials for this model have a black background and a very light grey printing for the text, numerals, and markers.
The Minuteman RWB The Minuteman Darby model will be offered in a choice of black DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) as well as brushed stainless steel. Both versions will be constructed of 316L stainless steel.
The idea behind the RWB, is to offer an eye catching watch with blue sunray dial in a patriotic yet tasteful looking Red, White, and Blue color combo.
