After a Kickstarter launch last year that hit five figures but fell just short of funding, the Bauhaus bad boys at Meshable are back. The watch is the same—their Miyota 9015-powered time/date “003”—but the funding goal is reduced to match what was pledged last time. Given that they raised the same amount just a few months ago, this time funding seems likely.
The watch is unchanged, with a tubular case, sparse dial with date window just inboard of 3:00, and slender stick hands. The crown is still a square little nub—a neat feature that, along with the angular lugs, gives some sharpness to the subdued round aesthetic. Patrick has a full preview here.
Also unchanged is the chroma-erotic Kickstarter video, which highlights the subtle blue and purple circle that rings the canon pinion. It’s so subtle, in fact, that the video doesn’t make a whole lot of sense without that detail in mind. Or, perhaps, even with it.
Kickstarter methods aside, this is a watch with purpose. It captures the Bauhaus aesthetic at a killer price point and moves Meshable from a purveyor of quartz-driven timepieces into the next level of watchmaking. And they’re already half-way to funded on day one. kickstarter.com
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.
