What country, friends, is this? Why Straputania, my lady. Novus, a new Kickstarter watch is aiming at the fashion-forward folks with their new Colborne, Churchill, Bremner, and Mayfield. All of them have quick-release straps and enough understated sexiness for me to accept that they contain Ronda quartz movements.
The primary selling point here is price. At $99 for early birds – the $65 models are sold out – you can buy a few of these to strap on all your appendages. They come in multiple styles but I’m partial to the blue-on-black Bremner. The Kickstarter is fully funded and looks like it will be shipping in June.
The real selling point? Strap flexibility. Writes the creator, Igino Boni, “With our custom cut leather straps, you are able to remove the pin and reuse it when you want to wear a traditional NATO strap whereas with other straps on the market you would be required to have two sets of pin bars.”
Because the team is in Canada they have one of the best watch shots I’ve seen in a while: the watch buried deep in the great Northern snows, waiting for spring.
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.
