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.
The project page is light on the actual watch details (there are a few more details in the comments), other than it uses a Miyota movement with two eyes (6S11 to be precise), a 46mm face (50mm case perhaps?), and a stainless steel case, all with your choice of a NATO strap to finish it off. The crystal is hardened mineral glass. For the functionality, the sub dial at 6:00 is the second hand, while the large second hand and the minute sub dial at 12:00 take care of the chronograph functions.
The face itself is very clean and nicely done, with silver beads for the indices, minute markings on the internal bezel, and a lone 7 marking the time. Why 7? I don’t know. They do give a e-copy of “7 Deadly Style Sins,” so maybe that is the connection, or maybe they just like 7:00 for cocktail hour. They have a pretty lofty goal of $24,550 for getting the watch off the ground, but the individual watch rewards are very accessible, starting now at $125 (the $99 level is sold out) for a watch with one strap or $150 for a watch with 2 straps.

Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
