When a watch boldly claims that it’s built for expeditions aplenty, you’d best sit up straight, listen and … go fund the brand’s Kickstarter page, ehh? The Boldr Expedition Watch is made to, as the brand says, “go afield” in style, and plenty are banking on just that (it’s raised more than $132K as of press time in advance funding).
It’s a Swiss-made automatic field watch that can compete with the best of them, at least from the looks of it. The Boldr Watch’s 316L stainless steel machined case packs a beefy, tough punch, while the automatic Sellita movement provides reliable timekeeping — that’s a combo that’s going to serve you well in the way of off-road or off-trail adventures (or your daily work day).
It also features a high-contrast display and a canvas strap, two critical touches that expand on the versatility and durability of the classic field watch. To us, it looks like the perfect new watch you need to fund in advance of spring 2018. – $539+
