sirkobold_sml.jpgMike Kobold is a madman – a real watch pro – and this is his latest, the amazing Old Explorer. It looks so retro yet the face makes me make a little pee pee.

Kobold revives a favorite, with the Sir Ernest Shackleton Old Explorer’s model. If you remember the original, it featured that beautiful flesh tone dial. Now you can enjoy the smokin’ Artic blue. Michael Kobold, known for his more industrial hard German look, does a great job with this subtle dress/casual throw back timepiece. A hand-wound, Swiss-made movement, caliber K.348 (modified Unitas 6497) powers the Sir Ernest and is a technological marvel.

Amazing work.
