Have you ever sat down on a park bench, drinking in the afternoon sun, and thought “The world needs now is another crowdfunded racing-styled quartz chronograph?” Well you’re in luck.

Manchester Watch Works comes to us from Manchester, Vermont and their latest piece, the Morgan, is handsome and actually quite nicely designed. Based on 1960s racer designs their watches look like a cross between Tissot and Tag and come with a Isaswiss quartz movement in a 40mm case.

Early birds will pay $228 for the chrono on a leather strap but you can also grab it on a nylon NATO. It will have three face styles – black, blue, and orange – and features plenty of blue lume for night driving.

The watch is nearly fully funded on Kickstarter and should ship in October, just in time for a little leaf peeping in your fancy 1960s roadster.
