In today’s heavily saturated world of watchmaking, it takes more and more in order to stand out from the crowd and this is invariably achieved nowadays by paying close attention to the aesthetics and components of the watches they’re creating and we’ve not seen many doing this better than newcomers to the industry, GAUGE Instruments®, who have already turned heads aplenty with their limited edition, Timeline series of timepieces which look exceptional and are powered with Swiss movements.
GAUGE Instruments® are a UK based watchmaker who are aiming to really make their stamp on the industry with their debut offering of the Timeline collection of limited edition watches. Available for pre-ordering now, this cracking series of watches immediately catches the eye with the unusual and striking aesthetic of the watch face and, we’re pleased to report, they’ve got some mighty impressive specifications under the hood as well and once you’ve seen them in action, chances are you’ll want this to be the next watch in your collection.
We’ve got a soft spot for automotive inspired timepieces here at Coolector HQ and that’s why the Timeline Collection from GAUGE Instruments® has really resonated with our sensibilities. Taking their design inspiration from vintage cars, these uber-cool timepieces are modelled on the instrumentation witnessed in vintage style motor vehicles and this is commingled with a love of industrial design and minimalism to create the exemplary watches that you see before you. Finished off with the Swiss movement, it is plain to see that these aren’t your average watch and will really put this UK watchmaker on the map.
Available in three different iterations – namely, Classic, Phantom and Vintage – you’ll have plenty of options when it comes to finding the perfect GAUGE Instruments® timepiece for you. Each different version has a distinctive design emphasis depicted in each of two watches, for a total of six watches in this collection. The mission statement of the brand sums up their objectives rather nicely indeed:
To deliver eye-catching pieces that each makes a unique statement, yet which remains affordable
It is the dashboard speedometer inspired watch dial which really helps to set this awesome watches apart from the competition and with such an attention to detail in the design execution, these timepieces are tough to beat from a visual point of view. Every watch in the Timeline series boasts a sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating that has been shaped for each piece to match its specific type. Regardless of the version you go for, it has an individually crafted style which is perfect for you. Bold, uncompromising and affordable, with prices starting at £220 (for the first 100 pre-orders before going back to the RRP of £449), there is an awful lot to like about this debut offering from GAUGE Instruments®. Especially as those making pre-orders get free shipping and the limited edition numbering engraved on their timepiece.
