McDowell Time Sonoma

Postby koimaster » March 27th 2017, 9:25am

After the success of the DelRay, McDowell Time is returning to Kickstarter with the Sonoma, a mid-sized chronograph named for the famous California racetrack. I got some time with a PVD black panda dial prototype for this review.

Every good racer must start with a suitable engine. The Sonoma's is the popular Seiko/Time Module MecaQuartz, a cost-effective hybrid that marries a conventional quartz timekeeper to mechanical chronograph. The VK63 movement used here features small seconds, 60-minute, and 24-hour registers.

The logo alone, without the brand name on the dial, is IMO not enough- but I'm being picky. It's nice.

Yeah, well, you know, that's just, like, your opinion, man.
