If you’re thinking that the Vesuviate Attivo sounds – and perhaps looks – a little familiar, it’s because we first introduced you to that design back in 2021. Well, now the TV case is back, and this time around it’s housing an automatic chronograph movement. Time to get familiar with the Vesuviate Attivo Chronograph.
What is it?
Simply put, it’s a brand new mechanical chronograph. Given that it’s an automatic movement (in this case, it’s the Seagull ST-1940), this will be thicker than the three-hander Attivo from three years ago. Then again, if you’re a mechanical chronograph sort of a person, well, you’re used to taller cases. And yes, we do have a prototype in, so be on the lookout for our take on how the case wears (and very soon).
What do we like about it?
We like that the Attivo line is getting another model added to it. While we do like other Vesuviate designs, the Attivo really feels like something that is uniquely their own. So, expanding on that lineup, and in a way that makes sense for the case shape, well, that just makes sense. We also rather like that that pricing is kept affordable (even post-Kickstarter), and that there are a variety of dial colors available. Oh, and if you’re not a bracelet person? They’ve got leather straps that integrate into the lugs cleanly as well, so that’s a great new thing for this design.
How can I get one?
Well, right now, that’s all about Kickstarter (or ordering directly from Vesuviate). Super earlybird pricing starts at just $395, while MSRP (after the campaign is closed) is expected to be $475. The campaign itself runs through August 16th, with delivery starting in September. Oh, and if you miss the campaign, but still want to pick one up directly from Vesuviate, you’ll be be able to use the code vesuviateoffer to get an additional 7% knocked off the price. campaign page / vesuviate.com
