Ikepod Megapod Automatic Watch

So far as striking watches that have a personality that is uniquely their own, it’s hard to look past the timepieces of Ikepod and they’ve hit another home run with their latest release, the Megapod, which is funding for just 15 days over on Kickstarter with a massive 41% off the final retail price so, if you love a bargain, make sure you move quickly. The Megapod Watch from Ikepod is a 46mm timepiece with a bold, breathtaking aesthetic that we’re loving here at Coolector HQ.

The Ikepod Megapod Automatic Watch on Kickstarter can currently be yours for just £640 which is almost half price of what its final retail price is expected to be. Definitely don’t hang around if you want to get your hands on this spectacular timepiece though because only 260 watches are being made for delivery in June and these will undoubtedly fly off the shelves such is the visual superiority of this striking timepiece from Ikepod.

Watchmaking Heritage

Ikepod was the first watchmaker in 1994 with its international designer to introduce “concept watches” and “pod” collections to the timepiece industry, which were similar to the collections of the fashion industry. The Hemipode and Megapod became iconic watches for the tech moguls, designers and architects but also horology aficionados. The brand was relaunched in 2017 with watches that are proudly made in HK with Japanese movements.

With the Ikepod Megapod Automatic Watch on Kickstarter (from £640) there are three different dial designs to choose from and each one has its own unique visual impact that will turn heads everywhere you go. All of these majestic looking timepieces are automatic and boast robust sapphire crystal glass which will help ensure that they are ready for any adventures that you find yourself on in 2020 and beyond.

Boasting a premium, Japanese Miyota movement, these fantastic timepieces from Ikepod have a great degree of reliability to go along with their unparalleled aesthetic appeal. It is a 9039 movement that forms part of premium range from Miyota with higher quality and reliability than a entry level Swiss movement so you know that it is something that you can rely on day in, day out.

Devil in the Detail

Throughout the design of these Automatic Watches from Ikepod on Kickstarter there are some impressive features and materials used which makes their £640 price tag (for now at least) all the more remarkable. This includes Superluminova LUME on hour and minutes hands, the premium Miyota movement with 42 hours power reserve and a 5ATM water resistance with a push and pull crown and 316L stainless steel case.

With only 260 of these incredible timepieces being made available for delivery in June, time is of the essence if you want to secure one of your own. We love the unique visuals of these Ikepod watches here at The Coolector and with the campaign rapidly approaching its funding target over on Kickstarter, it won’t be long before they’re all gone.
