Zelos second timepiece has launched on Kickstarter. After successfully funding the Helmsman, Zelos announcing a new line of watches with the Chroma and Chroma skeleton. The Chroma actually reminds me a bit of the Xetum with both featuring minimalist designs and no lugs.

The Zelos Chroma features a rounded case, lugless on leather strap, and 8215 Miyota movement. The Chroma is a must have watch that you should very much pledge to get. The modern and minimalist design is a work of art on your wrist.

New watch startup Rhynofit Inc is on a roll. After successfully funded their first watch, the company has funded the second Rubicon Cockpit watches. The company has reached it’s $50,000 goal and surpassed to $52,730 with still 30 days to go.

Rynofit was created by Rico Adams, and was inspired by some military event or equipment domestic or foreign. After the smashing hit of the Rubicon Big 50, Rynofit has announced the new Rubicon AI, which is available in 44mm and 50mm sizes. I like the fact the company decided to expand to 44mm as everyone can’t wear 50mm on their wrists.

The Rubicon AI will be powered by the Miyota, but the retail version will feature a Swiss automatic movement. Pledge to this Kickstarter campaign HERE
