Rossling & Co looks to fund their new Metropolitan

It can be quite a treat to see a brand come along and then start to explore new avenues of design. One such of those brands would be Rossling & Co. We became aware of them early on in their kickstarted existence, and just recently they started up a new project, with a design that takes their previous design in a new direction. So, what does the new Rossling & Co Metropolitan collection have in store for you?

The McDowell Time Delray is a military watch with vintage style

I must really have a thing for trench watch-inspired watches, as another Kickstarter project just crossed my desk, and I rather liked what I saw. Then again, going with what seems to be a popular style (vintage military in a modern design) is a solid way to go, especially for a brand just starting out. With that in mind, let’s see what the McDowell Time Delray has on offer.

The Peren Son of the Dragon chrono will singe your wrist

When it comes to watches launching on Kickstarter, you have the same old retread story (couldn’t find what we wanted, decided to make our own), and then there are some brands that come up with their own truly unique story. In the case of this latest watch we’re featuring, it would be that the guy behind the brand is a descendant of Transylvanian nobility – so there’s a big influence from that region’s mythology and history. Does that mean the Peren Son of the Dragon is worth your time?

Introducing the Freedom to Exist 40

If you want a slim quartz three-hander, you have no end of choices when it comes to what has been showing up on Kickstarter. Now, if you want one that is discernibly different from the five that preceded it, and the five after, then you are a bit more stuck. To put it plainly, there are just a lot of carbon copies out there with the only real difference being the name on the dial. Then you run across things like the Freedom to Exist 40, and you see something that mixes up the formula just a bit.

Kicking off the Mansfield Time Automatica One

What’s that? You say you’re trying to create a watch via crowdfunding, and you arrived at this idea because nothing else out there met your idea of a perfect watch? While this may ring true for many creators, it’s a line that has been trotted out time and again, and it simply does not get our engines turning over. No, for that, you have to offer up something that is particularly different from what has come before, and that is where watches like the Mansfield Time Automatica One jump ahead of the pack.
