We often find ourselves trawling Kickstarter here at Coolector HQ and, truth be told, it’s invariably timepieces that we’re on the hunt for but it’s not often that we come across ones quite as superb looking as the Jack Mason JM-N105 Regatta Timer Watch which is on the crowdfunding platform as we speak and which boasts a mighty fine, nautical style aesthetic that will look great on the wrist all year round.
The Jack Mason JM-N105 Regatta Timer Watch on Kickstarter has a top notch Swiss Movement which immediately sets it apart on Kickstarter and for any man looking for an affordable, eye-catching and supremely stylish nautical style timepiece for their wrist this summer and autumn, you’ll be onto a winner here. As with all Jack Mason watches, the starting point and central goal is function. For this particular project, Jack Mason wanted to make a watch with all of the bells and whistles. So, they made a return to Kickstarter to deliver the first watch of their Pinnacle Series: The Regatta Timer. And it’s a belter.
Setting Sail for Style
As mentioned, both form and function are chief considerations for the Jack Mason JM-N105 Regatta Timer Watch and these are both features that positively shine through on the finished product on Kickstarter. For this exceptional offering Jack Mason’s traditional Nautical dial blueprint has been reimagined to prominently feature the regatta countdown timer, a pivotal part to yachting and very accurate timekeeping. If you plan to head out onto open water this year and want a timepiece that can keep pace, look no further.
The Jack Mason JM-N105 Regatta Timer Watch has a case that boasts their first ever bi-directional compass bezel for rapid orienteering operation. In the, hopefully unlikely, event that you find yourself overboard, this dive quality timepiece offers a depth rating of 20 ATM which is an impressive amount of water resistance. Some of the other stand out features of this cracking timepiece from Jack Mason include sapphire crystal glass front, a Swiss made, yacht timer movement, a numbered caseback that is inclusive to Kickstarter backers and a screw down crown with Jack Mason’s signature Lone Star logo (being a Texan brand).
This is the first time a Jack Mason watch has offered a Swiss movement and this is something which elevates the appeal of this Kickstarter timepiece considerably in our opinion here at The Coolector. The goal of creating the JM-N105 Regatta Timer Watch was to design an accessory for the casual sport customer: a weekend enthusiast or even a yachting fan; namely, someone who understands the heritage story of boating and is emotionally connected in some way to the lifestyle. And, from what we’ve seen, it’s mission accomplished.
Given the eye-catching components and materials inherent in the Jack Mason JM-N105 Regatta Timer Watch, it is hard to believe that you can pick one up for just $250 on Kickstarter (you’ll need to get a move on though as the campaign has but four days left). Available in a number of different style straps including stainless steel, leather and rubber, you’ll be able to match this magnificent timepiece to any occasion and outfit choice.
Kickstarter is home to a lot of watch projects but not many stand out to us as this Jack Mason JM-N105 Regatta Timer Watch has here at Coolector HQ. If you’ve got a love for the sailing lifestyle and want a glorious looking timepiece on your wrist for under $300, then this one really is a bit of a no-brainer.
