The BOLDR Collaboration
We don't make watches, but are proud to work with folks who do! The goal was to make a super-tough, stylish, functional, expedition watch to be used and abused every day.
The catch, is it has to make a bold statement in the dark, with one of the brightest lume possible: Old-Radium C3 Glow.
The end result is an understated yet insanely high contrast dial that works during the day, and glows at night like a radioactive reactor. A perfect statement piece that will turn heads and get your buddies asking where you got your watch from.
Be Hard-to-Kill. Just like this watch.
Powering the lume is Nitecore's TIKI UV. At 1000mW just a quick flash will fully charge your watch face and anything else you need.
Each TIKI light was hand engraved with the same contour lines as the watch dial - an iconic representation of overland adventure, unobstructed by the crystal clear sapphire glass face.
Holding everything together is a 38mm PVD titanium case that's deceptively lightweight but tough enough for any adventure.
The case back holds a laser engraved Kraken Skull, a symbol of strength, resiliance and sheer toughness that makes it hard to kill. A signature patch with glow in the dark threads will reveal a darker side with just the eyes and the word 'KILL'.
Nothing quite replaces an automatic timepiece that runs forever, not even your smartphone
Wristwatches are functional and convenient. When I got my first smartphone, I was one of those people who dumped their wristwatch. Why carry an extra piece of equipment, when there’s a clock built right into my phone?
But after a year, I found myself getting annoyed at having to pull my smartphone out of my pocket whenever I wanted to know the time. With a wristwatch, telling the time just requires a glance at your arm, and both of your hands remain completely free and ready for action.
What’s more an automatic watch almost never loses power — no power plug needed. The power factor is a big reason many dumped the smartwatch. I had to charge the thing all the time. You practically look silly with a smartwatch that has run out of battery.
Bottom line: if you want to wear a watch, wear a real watch, not a power hungry device that forces you to do it's bidding.
