Kickstarter is, in our experience here at Coolector HQ, a veritable hotbed of fantastic micro watch brands and it’s captured our attention again with another superb looking timepiece taking the crowdfunding platform by storm. Say hello to the REISE Resolute Watches which consists of a series of ultra-robust titanium field watches made to withstand the toughest journeys and designed with the adventurous and discerning in mind.
Prices start at $399 during the crowdfunding campaign which is over 30% off the final retail price of $599 so if, like us, you love a bargain, make sure you don’t miss out on this one. The REISE Resolute collection of watches is so called because of the brand’s unwavering determination to conceptualise a watch that would conquer all odds. Mission accomplished. Engineered for the everyday adventurer – from the boardroom to the wilderness trail, this timepiece was crafted to see you through every exploit and every season.
Form Meets Function
Taking design inspiration from stealth vehicles but still offering an incredibly lightweight performance, the Resolute series of watches boasts a full titanium case with a special UltraHex Anti-scratch coating to keep the timepiece looking as good as new no matter where your adventures take you. This clean and understated timepiece packs a punch, with an array of intricate and carefully curated features purpose built for maximum legibility, versatility and comfort.
The REISE Resolute Watches on Kickstarter (from $399) makes use of geometric shapes such as those found on military stealth vehicles and you’ll see plenty of carefully crafted intricate details such as the octagonal profile on the hour indexes and date window that make these watches stand out from the competition. With versatility in mind, REISE balanced out the ruggedness of the watch by incorporating circular elements such as the round bezel with angular chamfer and circular paddle second hands. Stylish and no-nonsense – a real win, win in our book here at Coolector HQ.
As with all watches, the choice of movement is an important one and the REISE Resolute definitely doesn’t disappoint. It uses the SII NH35A movement which requires close to zero maintenance and has a way lower failure rate compared to Swiss movements. REISE wanted to craft a watch that is beyond reliable, one that is well-engineered, well-designed and well-priced – this movement helps them achieve this objective in style.
There are many first class features to be appreciated with the Resolute Watches from REISE but chief amongst them is the Swiss Superluminova which delivers unparalleled legibility in low light conditions. The colour-matched date window also blends seamlessly into the dial, translating into a consistent design language that really gives these watches an impactful aesthetic.
With over 30% off the final retail price during the Kickstarter campaign, there’s still a few days to bag yourself a bargain and one of the best looking watches we’ve seen on the crowdfunding platform in some time. Each Resolute timepiece is engraved with a unique serial number, limited to only 500 pieces per colourway, so you’ll know your timepiece is exclusively yours.
