BOLDR Venture Kraken: The First-Ever Watch + Torch Project in Collaboration with Nitecore TIKI

BOLDR Supply Company is collaborating with Nitecore Singapore to create a special version of the Venture field watch called The Kraken. It is paired with a Nitecore TIKI torch to mark Nitecore Singapore’s and BOLDR’s first-ever watch + torch collaboration project.

BOLDR Venture Kraken: The First-Ever Watch + Torch Project in Collaboration with Nitecore TIKI

Nitecore is well-known for its powerful rechargeable torches and adventure equipment, many of which are used by members of BOLDR themselves.

BOLDR Venture Kraken: The First-Ever Watch + Torch Project in Collaboration with Nitecore TIKI

In Q4 of 2021, BOLDR reached out to discuss a possible collaboration to make a super-tough, stylish, functional, field watch that is paired with a torch in order to be used and abused on everyday adventures.

The criteria for the watch included toughness and strength of luminescence on the dial, even without the help of the Nitecore torch. For this reason, the Kraken is equipped with one of the brightest lumes possible, the Old-Radium C3 Glow. The watch’s understated yet insanely high contrast dial works well during the day and glows powerfully at night after being recharged in sunlight.

BOLDR Venture Kraken: The First-Ever Watch + Torch Project in Collaboration with Nitecore TIKI

Not just an adventure accessory, the Nitecore torch can be used to ‘recharge’ the lume on the watch dial using its TIKI UV feature (1000mW). Just a quick flash is strong enough to fully charge the lume on any watch face. The TIKI torch is laser engraved with the same contour lines to match the Kraken watch dial, making them a practical yet aesthetically pleasing pair.

BOLDR Venture Kraken: The First-Ever Watch + Torch Project in Collaboration with Nitecore TIKI

Features of the Kraken watch include a 38mm PVD titanium case, a high contrast dial with Old-Radium lume with C3 Glow, sapphire crystal, NH35 automatic movement, and a custom NATO strap. It is also rated for 200m water resistance which protects it from water damage. The watch is on a limited run of 100 pieces with free shipping worldwide.

BOLDR Venture Kraken: The First-Ever Watch + Torch Project in Collaboration with Nitecore TIKI

The Kraken timepiece + torch edition is available now for a limited run of 100 pieces only.

Each package of The Kraken consists of the watch by BOLDR, a Nitecore TIKI torch, and a custom branded patch, all for a retail price of $449.

The Pink Fighter Project by BOLDR

Singapore-based watch brand BOLDR Supply Company is starting an initiative to raise awareness and contribute funds towards fighting cancer. The project is inspired by real life experiences of members of the company and how cancer affects the physical health of its victims, with even larger detrimental effects on the mental health of patients and family members.

The Pink Fighter Project (PFP) is set to kick off in October 2021 with two brand new BOLDR Venture models, of which 25% of sales will be donated to cancer-related charities.

BOLDR Venture Automatic PFP Venture Earth

After successfully raising funds for Covid-19 relief charities via the Venture Field Medic, BOLDR Supply Company founder Leon Leong realised that the company’s resources could be further channeled towards a cause that is amongst the most difficult challenges humans have to grapple with – multiple forms of cancer. The sheer heartbreak, confusion, grief, and irreparable damage caused by cancer are not often fought alone, but together with loved ones who watch helplessly from the sidelines.

The supporting partners in this venture are: Windup Watch Shop from Brooklyn, NY, Seriouswatches of Netherlands, Timezone from Vietnam, Link & Tag from Taiwan, and FiveFortyFive from New Zealand.

BOLDR New Odyssey Bronze

BOLDR Supply Company has announced the launch of the latest Odyssey Bronze line-up, a returning favourite with exciting new features. At 45.5 mm, this chunky dive watch is designed for watch enthusiasts who have a particular propensity for larger watches and superior luminescence.

Using a brand new lume technology known as Lumicast®, the Odyssey Bronze stands to outshine its peers and deliver adventure-ready performance to its wearer. The watch will be available for pre-order on BOLDR’s website.

BOLDR New Odyssey Bronze

The Odyssey Bronze series has been a fan favourite ever since its inception in 2018, selling out within a few months of its release. A tough, adventure-ready diver that packs quality and durability at an affordable price, this latest line-up is set to be their best offering yet. It features some new special features such as 3D-lume markers, a high double-dome crystal, and a durable fluoroelastomer rubber strap called Druber®.

BOLDR New Odyssey Bronze

The most prominent addition to the series is the use of Lumicast®, a new technology that creates a 3D lume effect with superior brightness and legibility. The lume markers are not applied nor laid in the style of sandwich dials; but they are actually built of luminescent material.

BOLDR New Odyssey Bronze

Combining ceramic parts with Swiss Super-LumiNova®, the dial markers are casted according to specifications of each individual watchmaker’s design. The resulting indexes are raised, giving them a 3D effect.

BOLDR New Odyssey Bronze

This is especially attractive for diving as watches using Lumicast® maintain their glow for much longer periods than its counterparts. Another dive-friendly feature is the accompanying Druber® strap, a fluoroelastomer rubber band developed with BOLDR’s manufacturing partners.

BOLDR New Odyssey Bronze

Fluoroelastomers are known for their superior rubber quality, high durability, and resistance to extreme temperatures. These straps are comfortable on the wrist with a pleasant softness while supporting the hefty bronze case, integrated perfectly with the lugs for a neat finish.

BOLDR New Odyssey Bronze

The super-tough CuSn8 case has a 120-click unidirectional bronze bezel and is rated for 500m water resistance, with a screw-down crown & triple lock mechanism for extra water protection. Keeping the watch afloat underwater is the resilient Japanese NH35 Automatic movement, and a special helium escape valve to release pressure that may accumulate under the crystal.

Available in Prussian Blue, Pine Green, and Slate Grey dial colors, each model is limited to 100 pieces with individual serial numbers.

BOLDR Odyssey Regatta Automatic Chronograph

The Singapore-based watch manufacturer BOLDR Supply Company is best known for their tough line-up of adventure-ready watches ranging from divers to GMT and field watches. The brand has now released its first regatta chronograph watch.

BOLDR Odyssey Regatta Automatic Chronograph

The inspiration for the watch came from world record holder Bhavik Gandhi, who crossed 3000 miles over The Atlantic Ocean by himself in 2007, a feat accomplished by a precious few humans throughout history. A watch enthusiast himself, Bhavik’s penchant for endurance sports resonates deeply with BOLDR’s core values, leading the brand to reach out for his creative input.

BOLDR Odyssey Regatta Automatic Chronograph

Led by BOLDR’s designer Danny Guzzi, the team also engaged the help of renowned regatta timepiece experts in order to validate their design blueprints. Among those consulted were Mathias Hübner, a vintage watch expert and avid collector from Germany, Mark Reichardt, a regatta watch collector based in the Netherlands and founder of regatta-yachttimers.com, and David Braybrook, a Portugal-based watch collector with years of experience in custom-built timepieces.

Their highly-valued feedback was implemented in the intricate details that went into creating the quintessential regatta timepiece, from easy-to-use tracking features down to the triple-lock crown on the case.

BOLDR Odyssey Regatta Automatic Chronograph

The watch offers several first-time features for the brand such as a unique 2-in-1 bezel, which combines a 15-minute countdown marker with a specialized nautical miles tachymeter. Powering this timepiece is an ETA Valjoux 7750 Elabore grade chronograph movement encased in a full stainless steel body, rated for 500m.

BOLDR Odyssey Regatta Automatic Chronograph

Designed to be highly legible, the black & white dial features three specialized sub-dials and stylized boat-shaped skeleton hands for better readability.

BOLDR Odyssey Regatta Automatic Chronograph

One of its sub-dials is a classic 10-minute count back disk-dial, a popular feature used to mark the start of a regatta race. The chronograph tracking hand moves smoothly across the indexes with a simple click and snaps back immediately into reset position using the ‘flyback’ reset feature. This is highly useful for tracking in intense race situations, where concentration is high and every second counts.

BOLDR Odyssey Regatta Automatic Chronograph

Keeping the inner workings safe and dry is a triple-lock screw-down crown, a sophisticated three-tiered locking system that prevents water from seeping in.

BOLDR Venture X Art Story Watch, In Partnership with the Autistic Thai Foundation

During World Autism Awareness Week (29th March – 4th April 2021), BOLDR Supply Company joined forces with the Autistic Thai Foundation and created a Venture watch that features original artwork by Mr. Ratapat Chantamit.

BOLDR Venture X Art Story Watch, In Partnership with the Autistic Thai Foundation

This new Venture watch boasts a Koi fish artwork designed by Mr. Ratapat Chantamit, an exceptional artist from the Thailand-based social enterprise Art Story by Autistic Thai.

The Autistic Thai Foundation supports the development of skills in autistic children and adults, helping them find and nurture their passions using methods tailored to their interests.

BOLDR Venture X Art Story Watch, In Partnership with the Autistic Thai Foundation

ART STORY by the Autistic Thai Foundation is a social enterprise that provides a landscape for autistic individuals to exercise their exceptional talents and develop new skills. The foundation believes that autistic individuals are no less creative than regular individuals, but simply have not been given a platform to express themselves in their own unique way.

BOLDR Venture X Art Story Watch, In Partnership with the Autistic Thai Foundation

Over years of working with autistic individuals, the foundation has created and sold a variety of reasonably-priced products under the brand Art Story. The initiative is funded with the help of many generous supporters and spearheaded by Dr.Chusak Janthayanond, President & ‘Guardian’ of the Autistic Thai Foundation.

BOLDR Venture X Art Story Watch, In Partnership with the Autistic Thai Foundation

The Autistic Thai Foundation continues to churn out quality products and works that span all five sensory perceptions, be it through design & craft (vision & touch), baristas & bakers (taste & smell), and a Thai traditional musical band (hearing). Through consistency and dedication, the foundation has helped many of their members to achieve a proficiency level that allows them to enter the workforce, earn a steady income, and live a purposeful life.

This watch sports an automatic movement with a rotating disc dial and Art’s elegant Koi fish painting.

BOLDR Venture Un.Dark Limited Edition

BOLDR Supply Co. has released a special edition titanium Venture watch that commemorates the Radium Girls, whose story is a solemn reminder of the watch industry’s dark past which claimed many lives before global health & safety standards were regulated. The Venture Un.dark is available in a limited release of 99 pieces.

BOLDR Venture Un.Dark Limited Edition

The Radium Girls were a collective of young teenage factory workers who would handle this paint every day without protective equipment, exposing them to its harmful side effects and ultimately causing severe health issues and painful deaths to many.

BOLDR Venture Un.Dark Limited Edition

The watch is dedicated to the memory of the fallen girls, featuring an outline of a dial painter on its face and custom artwork on its caseback.

BOLDR Venture Un.Dark Limited Edition

Following its discovery in the early 1900s, radium-laced paint eventually found its way to the US where it was painted on the dials of watches, clocks and airplane dashboards during the first World War. Young teenage girls were hired by industry giants such as the United States Radium Corporation (USRC) in New Jersey, to handle the patented Undark paint. Assured that it was perfectly safe to use, the girls handled the paint without any protective gear. Each time their paint brushes were dipped between their lips to make a fine point for painting, they ingested small amounts of radium which seeped into their bones.

Slowly but surely, damaging effects of radium begin to show – in 1922, one of the USRC workers named Mollie Maggia suffered abscesses in her mouth, disintegrating teeth, and a jawbone that dislodged into her doctor’s hands upon touching it. Horror stories such as these began cropping up and affecting teenage girls all over the country, but they were largely ignored, misdiagnosed, and shamed for unfounded accusations while corporations rushed to cover up their injuries and deaths.

With cases increasing over years, it took the courage and determination of a few heroic workers such as Grace Fryer in 1927 and Catherine Wolfe Donahue in 1938 to fight against guilty corporations and force governments to tighten work safety regulations.

The work safety laws that resulted from the sacrifice of Radium Girls eventually saved the lives of countless workers around the world, yet this story is not well-known even to those in the watchmaking industry. The Venture Un.dark was created to keep their legacy alive, and to thank the Radium Girls for their priceless contribution to society.

BOLDR VOYAGE Collection

After successfully launching a line of hand-made mechanical watches in 2014 under Travisleon Watch Company, childhood friends Travis Tan and Leon Leong, now announce a new range of hybrid watches under a new label: BOLDR Watches. In this new project, the company based in Singapore and Malaysia will be offering a new line of functional hybrid ‘clever watches’ dedicated to the active urban wearer.

BOLDR VOYAGE Collection

With an analog aviator-style dial on the outside, but packed with smart wearable technology inside – the Voyage represents the collision of classic style and modern technology. Nearly a year of meticulous design and research went into creating the custom internal components and stellar design of this first collection, termed a hybrid ‘clever watch.’

BOLDR VOYAGE Hybrid watch

Starting with a Miyota 2025 Quartz Movement, and a proprietary BOLDR Smartmodule – the internal components were custom-designed to fit snugly within a sleek 43mm case with solder-on lugs.

Packaged with a 22mm premium leather strap with quick release tabs on the underside – the Voyage line comes in 6 striking colours. The technology behind the Voyage stems from its one-of-a-kind BOLDR Smartmodule, seamlessly connecting to your smartphone via Bluetooth 4.0.

BOLDR VOYAGE Collection Hybrid watches

The design inspiration came from classic, aviator-style watches. As for the functions, the duo of Travis and Leon assessed what a modern urbanite would require to assist in their everyday lives – and custom-designed an internal package of smart wearable technology with the wearer in mind.

BOLDR VOYAGE Hybrid Watch Collection

The VOYAGE features an in-built pedometer that helps to track your daily exercise goals such as distance, steps and calories burned. Just sync it to your phone via the app and the watch will monitor your movement throughout your day.

BOLDR VOYAGE hybrid smart watch

In addition, BOLDR watches offer call alerts, messages and app notifications to your wrist via embedded LEDs and a built-in vibration motor. The notifications can be customized via the app. Thanks to its Anti-Loss function; the watch immediately alerts the wearer in case his smart phone is lost.

BOLDR VOYAGE watches

The VOYAGE doesn’t require a battery charger. An easily replaceable battery (CR2032) powers the BOLDR Smartmodule for up to 6 months. The quartz movement of the watch is powered with a separate battery that comes with a 3 years of battery life.

BOLDR VOYAGE Collection

Voyage also includes a shutter feature, letting you remotely snap pictures with your smartphone’s camera with the simple push of a button.

In addition, the BOLDR Watches team is constantly innovating and adding new smart features to the app, keeping the Voyage and all future collections up-to-date. For the watch itself, the team is planning for a yearly release of limited-run collections – consisting of all-new designs, beginning with 2015’s Voyage.

BOLDR VOYAGE Hybrid Wristwatch Collection

The pre-sale launch of the BOLDR Voyage will take place on Kickstarter – kicking off on August 29, 2015. Via the Kickstarter page, customer can place pre-orders of the Voyage at an initial starting price of USD $129. This debut line will also feature a limited, one-time only “Kickstarter Edition” engraving on the back. Once it’s made available stores in 2016, the Voyage will retail at USD $179.
