A skeleton Miyota movement? A brass number plate in gold or silver? A glass case that looks like something Breguet coughed up on a particularly hard day at the atelier? Sign me up!
The Orsto is a glass three-handed watch with some very unique styling. Based in UK, the crowdfunded piece looks to be raising $27,000 and is halfway there. Early bird pricing puts it at $145, not bad at all for an automatic.
Interestingly, this thing is also water resistant and apparently you can wear it snorkeling, skiing, or climbing out of a damn swamp with a machine gun and popping a cap in some bad mofos. Your call.
In all I like how this thing looks and I’d love to see it up close. Solid parts, an interesting design, and a little quality go a long way in crowdfunding and here’s hoping this is one of the good ones.
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.
