I’ve started to look into more classic design watches after I figured out that I don’t have any but sport watches, mainly divers.
I came across Mongol watches on Instagram; and I also checked their Kickstarter campain;
Kashif Barlas the founder is a true watch enthusiast and a big fan of vintage time pieces.
The name MONGOL was driven from his family lineage.
There are four variations for their first model;
M1 Classic White: White dial on a silver case with a camel leather strap
M2 Classic Black: Black dial on a silver case with a black leather strap
M3 Rally Edition: Black dial on a matte black anodized case and black leather strap
M4 Empire Rose: Pearl white dial on a rose gold case and dark brown leather strap
The power house in this elegant case is a Ronda 6004.d
The 316 stainless steel case is topped with a domed sapphire crystal
The crown is an onion shape, I’m not a big fan of, but for sure it complement the classic style of this watch
The specifications are as follow:
– Case Diameter: 43mm including crown, 40mm without crown
– Lug to Lug: 50mm
– Case Thickness: 11mm
– Lugs’ width: 20mm
– Crystal: Saphire
– Movement: Swiss Made quartz Ronda 6004.d
– Small second hand subdial
– Water Resistant: 5ATM / 50M
Estimated delivery time is October 2015; I would recommend giving this campain a look;
It is such a beautiful dress watch!
