It seems like new watch brands arrive onto the market on a daily basis and it takes a lot to stand out from the crowd nowadays for fledgling watchmakers but there are some that immediately catch your eye and that is exactly the case with Pompeak Watches – a new, UK based watchmaker who are already beginning to turn heads in the industry. Pompeak was founded by two brothers who are on a journey to bring high end watches to the masses at a price tag that is more wallet friendly than the norm.
If you like your watches to have something about them from an aesthetic point of view and made of good quality components without costing the earth, Pompeak Watches are a brand that need to be well and truly on your radar. Pompeak started out by designing the watch they wanted to wear themselves, and working on the price from there. Moving away from tradition and keeping quality above all else and has resulted in an elegant and devilishly dapper series of timepieces that any contemporary man will appreciate and with prices starting at just £125, what’s not to like?
Months of iterations ended with the launch of Pompeak’s Kickstarter campaign and with the support and confidence of their backers, they are now able to introduce their debut collection of watches and we’re loving what they’ve come up with here at Coolector HQ. For those who believe less is more when it comes to design, you’ll be in your element with these understated timepieces from Pompeak which add a touch of class to the wrist and will be the first watch you reach for when you head out of the door each day.
Despite the affordability of the watches from Pompeak, they boast some mighty impressive design features that belie the price tag. This includes up to 50m water resistance, sapphire crystal glass and surgical grade stainless steel as standard, which mean these watches are much, much more than just a pretty face. It is clear that the minimalist style is something that Pompeak fell in love with early on in their design stage. Stainless steel hour indicators and subtle chronograph markings ensure the timepiece maintains everyday usability.
While minimalistic from an aesthetic point of view, these fantastic watches from Pompeak don’t mess around from a performance perspective and have got you covered whatever adventures you find yourself on. They boast scratch resistance, water resistance and shock proofing qualities which combine to make them the ideal everyday watch for an active lifestyle. Each surgical grade stainless steel case has a brushed finish for that added touch of style and sophistication that really brings these watches to life.
Powering each one of these Pompeak timepieces is a robust, no-nonsense, Japanese quartz movement. These movements are famed for reliability and chosen to be the workhorse of the timepiece industry with up to five years of battery life, date indicator and a centre chronograph second hand for everyday usability. There is a real sense of style to these watches from Pompeak and if you’re after a new accessory for your wrist this autumn, they would definitely be one of our top picks here at The Coolector.
All of the genuine leather straps on these Pompeak watches are equipped with a hidden quick release system, which is important because it means you can switch up your style in no time at all with a brand new strap which will completely change the look and feel of your chosen timepiece. With a brushed finish and safety deployment clasp, a 316L stainless steel bracelet is the perfect choice for some but you can add any style strap you like to these majestic looking watches – win, win.
