Batavi Kosmopoliet GMT Watch

We’ve taken to Kickstarter once again in search of cool looking new watches to support here at Coolector HQ and this has led us squarely to the door of Batavi and their rather excellent looking Kosmopoliet GMT Watch which has taken the crowdfunding platform by storm. This eye-catching and effortlessly cool timepiece has a Swiss ETA 2893-2 automatic movement, bold design and is perfect for anyone with a passion for vintage watches.

The Batavi Kosmopoliet GMT Watch on Kickstarter is priced at €569 during the campaign, which is down from the intended final retail price of €749 so, as you can see, there is a pretty impressive saving to made if you get behind this timepiece now (you’ll need to move quickly though as the campaign has just entered its final week). Combining a vintage aesthetic with Dutch minimalism, it’s certainly not hard to see why this brilliant timepiece has experienced such success over on Kickstarter.

Contemporary Take on a Classic

Boasting a classic design, there is a pleasing contemporary streak to the Batavi Kosmopoliet GMT Watch on Kickstarter. It will stand out from the crowd with its well chosen colourways and sharp, eye-catching design. It’s a gentleman’s GMT dive watch and a stylish, understated timepiece rolled into one and we’re definitely loving the great looking aesthetics of this watch here at Coolector HQ.

The Batavi Kosmopoliet GMT Watch represents excellent value for money right now considering you can your hands on one for just €569 during the Kickstarter campaign. Batavi are a watchmaker who focus on design, quality and affordability and this is something which unquestionably shines through in their Kosmopoliet GMT Watch. For the design of the watch, they took inspiration from the faded bezels of the vintage GMT watches of yesteryear and combined their love for vintage watches, fashion, architecture, geography, travel into one exceptional looking timepiece.

Available in six different colourways, the design of the Kosmopoliet is based on vintage style principles and Dutch minimalism. By taking out all the excess and noise, Batavi have brought it down to the essence. At the heart of this timepiece lies the Swiss, premium automatic ETA 2893-2 movement which is an incredibly robust and reliable movement with a power reserve that can last up to 50 hours.

Attention to Detail

Everywhere you look with this Batavi Kosmopoliet GMT Watch there is a great attention to detail and this trickles through to the packaging which see the watch come in a wooden polished box with a secret layer underneath the watch to store all the accessories. Each backer of this watch on Kickstarter will be treated to three watch straps – one steel, one rubber and one NATO – so you can regularly change up the look of this timepiece.

Batavi are a new watchmaker on the market and operate out of Amsterdam and they have really caught our eye with this flagship offering over on Kickstarter. If you’re after a new timepiece for 2020 that both catches the eye and doesn’t break the bank, you’ll be hard pressed to find a better candidate for the job than this. There are only a few days left of the campaign on Kickstarter so head on over now to make sure you don’t miss out on this one.
