Introducing the Maen Manhattan

May 23, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

If you didn’t see any pictures, and I told you another thin (under 7mm) quartz-driven watch hit Kickstarter, you would probably be on to the next article without a second thought.

Whenever a brand reaches out to see if we want to take a look at a new watch, I generally start from a position of “yeah, why not?” In other words, the watch is innocent until proven guilty.
