Singapore based watch brand Mitch Mason presents its first model, the Chronicle, which is a contemporary interpretation of the ideal field watch, offering a perfect alliance between modern functionality and vintage design.
Built for the modern individual, this robust yet elegant series of history-inspired field watches is available in four color-ways – Steel Blue, Jet Black, Desert Sand and Field Grey – to suit any wrist and style.
This “daily beater” watch takes inspiration from the design of military field watches of World War II. In addition to their signature features like precision and robustness, the dial visibility is a must have feature of military watches since their introduction. Mitch Mason’s Chronicle watch has a solid build, high-contrast dial, and generously applied Super-LumiNova® lume for efficient time reading under all conditions.
The watch boasts classic proportions reminiscent of vintage era watches. The modest 36.5mm case size and substantial 43.5mm lug to lug length yield the perfect balance between style and comfort for all wrist sizes.
A blend of polishing and hand-brushing provides an elegant finish, only to enhance its versatility for wear in either elegant or adventurous environments. The distinct numerals and signature Mitch Mason hand-set provide excellent legibility, as expected of a field watch.
The Chronicle is a robust wristwatch thanks to its fully machined 316L stainless steel case fortified by a screw-down crown and a solid stainless steel case-back. The strong case construction ensures this watch an impressive 200 meters water resistance. Its dial is protected with a double-domed sapphire crystal glass with 5 layers of anti-reflective coating on the underside.
Powered by the Miyota 9039 automatic movement, beating at 28,800bph (4Hz), the Chronicle offers 42 hours of power reserve. Hacking and hand winding functions enables one to synchronize the time with best possible accuracy on the go. Safeguarding every movement is a screw-down caseback, engraved with a delicate piece of artwork.
The brand is launching a Kickstarter campaign in September this year for funding the initial mass production of Mitch Mason Chronicle Collection.
Please stay tuned for the updates.
