Indiana based Visitor Watch Company is gearing up for it’s Kickstarter project coming up the end of October/early November. The company is off to a good start being featured on Watchuseek, Fratelleo watches, Crave Object, The Time Bum, Worn & Wound and several other watch blogs. The micro-brand is trying to bring something fresh to the market with it’s first release.
The Calligraph Duneshore will be priced around $600 USD price according to founder Phil Rodenbeck. The unique case has people buzzing about the watch on watch forums and blogs. It is something we have not seen before and one inspired by sand dunes. The curved caseback was inspired by The Bean landmark in Chicago. The buckle continues the shape of the case to create a complete design focused on originality.
The Duneshore features beefy specs such as 44mm case with 11.75mm thickness, Miyota 9015 Japanese Automatic movement, Sandwich Dial with Applied Indices, 100M water resistance with screw down crown, and 2.5mm thick Sapphire Crystal with underside Anti-Reflective Coating. The polished case gives the watch a dressy feel while the strap and 44mm case give it a casual feel.
The CALLIGRAPH DUNESHORE is truly one the most anticipated watches to launch on the Kickstarter platform. I believe the watch has high potential of breaking new records in funding. The Visitor Watch Company Calligraph Duneshore is a home-run and the only question is how fast can I get one in my hands.

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.

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
