JUNE WATCH PRE-ORDERS

Have you got a little money and a lot of patience? Good. Because I've got let another roundup of delayed gratification deals for you. I've got a little bit of "must have it," a dose of "looks like a good deal," and a pinch of "wait, what the hell is that?" Enjoy.

Laventure Marine

This one stopped me in my tracks. The Laventure Marine is a modern spin on a 1960's diver and it is just gorgeous. The 41mm case is rated for 200m water resistance. The shape has shades of Patek Philippe Nautilus and shows off a lovely mix of finishes. It boasts a strong vintage vibe with a high domed sapphire crystal with inner AR coating, gilt hands, a vibrant ombré sandwich dial, and creamy beige lume. Even the Laventure logo looks like it comes from another era. The movement is a Swiss ETA 2824-2. In fact, Laventure claims 90% of the watch is Swiss, well above the legal standard for the Swiss made appellation. It is a perfectly lovely watch, but then there's the price... early bird rewards start at CHF 1570 ($1630 USD), 39% off full retail. Now, I understand Swiss production does not come cheap, but that is one hefty chunk of change to drop on someone's first Kickstarter campaign. Still, it is awfully pretty...

Silly Kickstarter dweebs. Hey, "alt"-WIS: The quality brands have been established. Now go away.
