Now Funding: Grayton Quinary


As you may imagine (and we’ve written about), we get flooded with requests from random people and brands wanting us to talk about their new watch that they’re putting up on a crowd-funding site. Most of these are parts-bin garbage with nothing to differentiate themselves, and we just delete the email. The Grayton Quinary offers something a little different, so here we are today.

Per their own materials, the Grayton Quinary is a dressier sport watch, and I can kind of see that. A 40m steel case gives it that sportier feel (especially as it’s not highly polished), but the dial and handset put you more in mind of a dressier watch. Past those elements (and the deluge of dial colors), what really makes the Grayton Quinary different from any other basic three-hander?

Well, it would have to be the movement. Not so much the presence of the Seiko NH35, but the fact that you can get the rotor custom engraved (looks via a laser engraver on their project page), allowing you to up your customization levels for sure.

The other big differentiator for the Grayton Quinary is it’s pricing. While the MSRP is $330, you can get them from the crowdfunding for just $159 ($179 if you want Xmas delivery), which includes the bracelet and leather strap. In other words, this is the Seiko of days gone by – an automatic movement inside, classic styling, 100m WR, and a very affordable price point.
