There are some micro watch brands that have been on our radar for some time at Coolector HQ and Mercer are chief amongst them because we’re always left mighty impressed with the calibre of their releases. They’ve turned our heads once again with their most recent offering, the superb looking Mercer Nomad GMT Watch, which is funding over on Kickstarter as we speak.
The Nomad GMT Watch is a robust Swiss-powered automatic GMT timepiece which is available for the bargain price of just $449 during the crowdfunding campaign. There is a pleasing, traditional style aesthetic to this GMT timepiece from Mercer and it is named after the watchmaker’s love of exploration and discovering new places. This great-looking watch is rugged and robust as they come and has an impressive water resistance of 100m so will be up for any underwater adventures you’ve got planned as well.
A Life of Adventure
If you’re a free spirit that loves hitting the open road, the wilderness hikes or adventuring beneath the waves, the Nomad GMT Watch from Mercer will be the ideal candidate for the job in our opinion here at The Coolector. Reliability is a key characteristic of the Nomad and that’s why Mercer chose the Swiss made, Soprod C125 Automatic movement for this watch because it is one of the most reliable and robust on the market and delivers a first class performance day in, day out.
Described as a classic “tool” watch, we’re loving the aesthetic of the Mercer Nomad GMT here at The Coolector and we’re not surprised that it is flying towards its funding target over on Kickstarter. Mercer wanted to deliver a high quality timepiece that was affordable and suitable for all elements of an adventurous lifestyle. Mission accomplished.
There are plenty of features to the Nomad GMT that have left us impressed and catch the eye and some of the stand out ones include the tapered oyster bracelet with adjustable clasp, a signed, screwed down crown, sapphire crystal glass casing and a matte black or matte white painted dial with colour matched date window.
Keeping Things Simple
Elegant and understated, there is no sense of flashiness to the Nomad GMT Watch from Mercer and that’s something that we certainly appreciate here at Coolector HQ. It relies on its high quality materials and craftsmanship to impress and has a caseback that is solid and press punched instead of transparent in order to keep its thickness to a minimum and lightweight on the wrist.
Available for the bargain price of $449 during the Kickstarter campaign, the Mercer Nomad GMT Watch represents great value for money given the accomplished finish to this timepiece and the adventure ready performance it is capable of delivering. If you’re after a classy new timepiece for your wrist this year, the Nomad would definitely be a top pick of ours – head over to Kickstarter now to get yours for a great price.
