Do you want an accurate watch?  Is a certified automatic too inaccurate and a quartz too, well, uninteresting?  How about an atomic clock.  Not a quartz watch that uses the atomic clock broadcasts, but an honest to goodness atomic clock that you can wear on your wrist?  Well Bathys has the Kickstarter project for you, the World’s 1st Atomic Wristwatch.

Kickstart a Minimalist Chronograph

Posted on 25 March 2014 by Matt Himmelstein

TT Leather

Talley & Twine wants to upgrade your style.  They want you to buy a watch from the “World’s Best Dressed Watch Company.”  Now, I am going to say that it is pretty unlikely that Talley & Twine is the world’s best dressed watch company.  Maybe they are, but I have my doubts.  Buying a watch from them will not put you on a list of 10 best dressed gentlemen.  But the Worley Chronograph that is available now on Kickstarter is a pretty nice looking watch.  I would hazard that it could possibly make you a better dressed, depending on what else you might have available to put on your wrist.

A Wooden Arrow

Arrow 3

I am a fan of watches made from alternative materials, and have always likes wooden watches, though I have yet to pull the trigger on one myself.  A new watch project on kickstarter, The Arrow Project Watch, is an easy way to jump on the wooden watch trend yourselves.  The watch itself is a basic quartz three hander with date, styled like a diver.  The movement is not specified, so it is pretty likely that the watch is not going to contain a name brand movement, especially not for $99 Australian Dollars ($90 US), plus shipping.

Helgray 4

The California

Helgray Watches out of Montreal Canada has a fairly ambitious project, launching 4 new military themed watches on kickstarter.  The watches cetainly have some common DNA across the styles, but they all use unique movements and complications.  Helgray is rolling out the Field Officer, a 3 hander with date; the California, with a sub dial for seconds at 6:00; the GMT, which provides a second time zone; and the Skyfighter, a dual register chronograph with date.

Bronze is not just for 3rd Place

Zelos Main

A new Kickstarter campaign is starting from Zelos, offering a 100M water resistant diver with a couple of unique twists (project page).  Common to the line is an internally rotating bezel, which I am seeing on a few higher end dive watches, but not in this price and feature range yet.  What is most unique in a relatively inexpensive watch like this is the choice of a bronze case as an alternative to the 316 stainless that is also offered.  Fitting for the materials of choice, the watch is named the Helmsman.
