Last year, American watch brand DuFrane successfully conducted an online crowd-funding campaign to promote its Waterloo watch. Now, this versatile dress watch can be purchased by visiting the online store of the Austin based watchmaker. Durable and practicable, this classic timepiece features a 39mm diameter stainless steel case with or without gold PVD.
Equipped with the state-of-the art Sellita SW200-1 self-winding movement made in Switzerland, the DuFrane Waterloo Automatic watch has a power reserve of approximately 38 hours. Its unique linen textured dial hosts special thermal blued hands. The watch is topped with a genuine sapphire flat crystal with 6 layers of anti-reflective coating, and a highly polished stepped bezel.
DuFrane Waterloo is also available in a quartz version with a 39mm diameter case and Swiss Ronda 715 movement. The quartz variant is thinner (8.8mm case thickness) than the automatic version, which has a 10.4mm thick case.
The retail price of DuFrane Waterloo watch is $499.00 for mechanical version and $299.00 for quartz model.
