In advance of the final heat weekend I provide a beautiful cool crowdfunded watch that may well be price a glance. Called the Arsenale Automatic it can pay tribute to Venice’s proud crusing historical past and appears simply brutish sufficient to remind us of her violent, pestilence-filled previous.
The watch comes with a Miyota or ETA motion – both Japanese or Swiss – and is available in a brush polished metal or elderly PVD. The bezel rivets – with numerals at midday, 3, six, and 9 – are reminiscent of some other Italian logo, Panerai, however they’re intended to constitute porthole rivets.
The watch will price about $600 retail. For now you’ll be able to get it on the crowdfunding web page for $338.
Why is this particular? It’s uncommon to to find a crowdfunded watch with the proper stability of options. This one is specifically fascinating as a result of of the heritage – I’ve by no means observed a Venetian watch – and the design. It is probably not as fancy as an Omega or a Breitling however for lower than $400 for a great three-hander you might want to do worse.
