BOLDR Expedition Field Watch
Singapore based watch company BOLDR has just launched their Kickstarter campaign for their latest wrist wear, the BOLDR Expedition Field Watch. A tried, tested and tough tactical timepiece, the Expedition features an automatic Swiss movement, a multi-function rotating inner bezel, dual screw-down crowns, with a sapphire glass lens and see-through caseback.
With a military-inspired design, the Expedition has some of the key features of a tactical timepiece, such as a high-contrast dial design, superluminova 3D lume markers and numerals for legibility in any condition.
Sturdy on the outside and sleek on the inside, the BOLDR Expedition comes in a 316L stainless steel machined case rated up to 20ATM, and is powered by an automatic Swiss Sellita SW200-1 movement.
The Expedition is also the first BOLDR to feature dual screw-down crowns. The first adjusts the time/date, the second, which features a bright orange rim for quick differentiation, controls a rotating brass inner dial ring bezel with printed markings and indexes. The multi-function inner bezel is used to mark countdowns, time elapsed, a second time zone or for use as a compass.
As a field watch, the Expedition is rugged right off the bat, with a high-contrast display that allows quick time-telling at a glance – thanks to the matte dial with printed logo and subtitles and inner minute track. The Expedition watch features Swiss superluminova hour markers in two-tone lume colours for high legibility in low light.
The Expedition is stealthily stylish, great for adding an element of toughness to those formal occasions. It’s available in 6 striking colours, each named after the world’s most challenging mountains, and comes with a canvas strap, calf leather lining, and reinforced brass eyelets for the military look. The lens on the Expedition is the iconic BOLDR double domed lens in sapphire crystal, with AR coating on the underside. The caseback is also sapphire with the signature caseback artwork laser etched on – allowing you a look into the inner mechanisms of the watch.
Founded in 2015 by Travis Tan, Leon Leong, and Isa Ghani, the BOLDR Supply Co. makes watches and apparel for modern-day urban adventurers. Based in Singapore and Malaysia, BOLDR products are available online, as well as selected retail stores in Paris, San Francisco, Hong Kong and Seoul.
