The Reverie GT is a driving-inspired mecha-quartz chronograph that is priced to move. The $350 watch features a sweep seconds hand and minute chrono register along with a 24-hour dial at 3 o’clock. The piece comes in three colors – rose gold, blue, and white – and is surprisingly elegant. I, for one, am a fan.
The watch comes to us from Reverie, a company that has run successful Kickstarters before. They’ve surpassed their $3K goal and should be shipping the watches in January, a welcome goal. The piece we tested looked very formal with a bit of driving energy and looks good with suits and formal wear. This isn’t a casual watch. All of the details – from the thin hands to the guilloched dial, scream Bentley vs. Baby Driver.
The most interesting thing is the movement. It’s a mechaquartz which means at acts like a mechanical and there is no quartz ticking. From the site:
Good driving watches are hard to find but this cute, handsome, and elegant piece is surprisingly nice, surprisingly cool, and a very good value. I am, as usual, honestly very impressed.
