Kickstarter Watch - Furlan Marri
Our friend singingbee shared his Havana Salmon below with some commentary.
This is one of two I purchased from the Kickstarter campaign earlier this year. It’s the “Mr Grey”. The watches have started to be delivered in the last few weeks and I know there are others here who’ve also purchased them.
As singingbee states, the fact that is not a mechanical watch will lose many people’s attention immediately. And that’s often the case for me too. However in this instance the appeal of the design (on paper, in images) was enough to draw me in.
I’m happy to have a vintage inspired quartz (mechaquartz) for a few hundred dollars. I’ve been wearing my “good stuff” less and less for several reasons and so I actually see these watches getting some real wrist time.
There is no running seconds. The sub dial at 3pm is a 24hr indicator. And as mentioned it’s a (Seiko VK64) mechaquartz, that is there is a mechanical module for the chronograph which allows for a classic sweeping seconds center chronograph hand all the time being powered by the quartz battery.
