If, like us here at The Coolector, you’re a little obsessed with watches, chances are you’ll also spend a lot of time scouring the web for new ones for your wrist. Well, needless to say, Kickstarter is always a veritable hotbed of new watchmakers and timepieces and we’ve just found another cracker on the crowdfunding platform in the shape of this James & Muriel The Timekeeper Watch. Minimalist in design, this majestic timepiece is a bold watch with a contemporary design which has been crafted to showcase beauty, precision, and elegance.
Available for the princely sum of just $169 during the crowdfunding phase, which is down from the expected retail price of $249, now is the time to move if you want to bag the James & Muriel The Timekeeper Watch for a bargain price. This eye-catching accessory has the sort of mid-century vintage vibe in its design that we love here at Coolector HQ and every design decision James & Muriel made in creating the TimeKeeper was taken to reflect their desire to enhance the overall, everyday experience of checking the time.
Despite the pleasing affordability of the James & Muriel The Timekeeper Watch, they have managed to use premium quality products throughout its design and build. They spent over 24 months sourcing and sampling several materials and they’ve carefully picked only the materials that they believe are both elegant and robust enough to ensure The Timekeeper Watch lasts long and sits comfortably on the wrist.
In the world of fast fashion, it’s pleasing to see products that are built to last and not changed at the drop of a hat. The Timekeeper Watch from James & Muriel ($169) on Kickstarter is made of tough, robust materials to ensure it will be your go-to watch for many years to come. It is is powered by a Swiss-made gold plated Ronda movement and encased in a 316L corrosion resistant surgical grade stainless steel case that comes strapped with an interchangeable full-grain Italian leather band for that extra touch of class.
The matte-finished dial of The Timekeeper is marked with carefully applied numerals and covered by a thick, scratch-resistant sapphire crystal which offers up to 50m of water resistance – making it more than suitable for any underwater adventures you’ve got planned. During the Kickstarter campaign, it is available in three different colour ways – namely, Silk White, Dreamer’s Black and, our personal favourite here at The Coolector, Horizon Blue – so you can choose the one that best fits your own sense of style.
Truth be told, we’re not big fans of brash, ostentatious watches here at Coolector HQ and will always gravitate towards more understated offerings like this The Timekeeper Watch from James & Muriel. The fact you can get one on your wrist for under $200 during their Kickstarter campaign is nothing short of miraculous and if you’re looking to add some affordable and effortlessly cool watches to your collection, look no further.
The Timekeeper Watch from James & Muriel will be funding on Kickstarter for another couple of weeks so you’ve still got time to bag yourself a bargain. Striking style delivered in an assuming way and the use of top quality materials really make this timepiece stand out from the crowd and we’re certainly fans of its aesthetic here at The Coolector. Two thumbs up from us.
