We’re big fans of nautically styled watches here at Coolector HQ and this Windstar Automatic Collection from Martin Design Watches definitely falls into that bracket. Visually unique and incredibly robust, this is the sort of watch that is built for action and adventure and you can get one for under £200 during the Kickstarter campaign. This cracking timepiece from Irish Watchmakers, Martin Design Watches, takes its design inspiration from the pioneering adventures of Europe’s mariners and mapmakers and this shines through in the design of the timepiece.

The Windstar Automatic Watches on Kickstarter encompass a bold, nautical theme which brings together the iconic elements that have become synonymous with sea navigation throughout history –  and this new collection of watches are heavily inspired by the art of directing vessels through traditional practice, geometry, astronomy, and special instruments. Great to look at, robust and with great materials, these are another incredibly impressive watch to emerge on the crowdfunding platform of Kickstarter.

Each of the eye-catching watches in this Windstar Collection is powered by Seagull TY 2706 or Swiss Sellita SW260-1 movements, with a 44 mm 316L stainless steel watch case that is available in three colours – these being, plain stainless steel with brushed and fine polished effect, PVD black plating stainless steel case or Gold PVD plated stainless steel case. In addition, you’ll find sapphire crystal glass alongside a choice of first rate leather straps with a striking, stainless steel engraved clasp, backed by two years of warranty and free shipping worldwide.

One of the stand out design features of these timepieces is the multilayered dial that are designed according two components. Astrolabe, which is something invented by Greeks and developed in Islamic world and which are used for determining latitude on land or calm seas and a compass makes up the multilayering.
