I met one of Mexanica co-founders online, he is a fellow watch enthusiast having a daytime job to pay his bills; after exchanging few messages, he sent me one of the Rebel1’s watches for review.
The watch arrived on a real leather zulu, and as I’m not a big fan of zulus, I dumped it for a bond nato with pvd hardware.
My first impression is that the case is extremely well finished; it is satin brushed coated PVD with very smooth finish, I really like it; it is very well done beyond the price point.
The version I got has the Miyota quartz movement and non luminous dial, but Rebel 2 which is currently on kickstarter is having Swiss Ronda, luminous hands, dial markers and logo.
The watch has a screw down crown, maybe not needed for the WR rating, but it is a nice touch to have;
The watch measures 40mm and sits very well on the wrist;
If you are after a quartz, grab n’ go, nicely done, affordable, pilot watch, then this one might be for you.
The kickstarter campaign is ending in 3 days, just saying 🙂
