Adventure in the Blood
You can tell that some watches are made from tougher stuff than others and won’t shy away in the face of adversity and the MT Automatic Watch from Winfield is a prime example of exactly that. Each and every Winfield MT Auto that leaves the factory has been quality checked, regulated in six positions and re-pressure tested in the US to guarantee that they are up to Winfield’s rigid expectations and, of course, yours. The minute you put the MT on for the first time you’ll know you’ve made the right decision in investing in this robust, all-action timepiece.
The Winfield MT Automatic Watch ($625) is durable in the extreme and boasts a heat treated 316L stainless steel, bead-blasted finish casing that won’t let you down when push comes to shove. The crown is a double gasket screw down and it has double domed sapphire crystal glass with double AR coating that will put paid to any scrapes and scratches that might come your way when out in the wild in search of adventure. This watch has an impressive water resistance of some 200m which will be more than enough for any excursions to the Deep Blue Sea that you’ve got afoot.
It uses the NH35 automatic movement which is both robust and reliable and ideally suited to a timepiece of this calibre. The Winfield MT Automatic Watch is the first auto offering from the watchmaker (home run right off the bat) and the Flieger inspired dial design is uncluttered and stylish and the lighter blue of the dial is enhanced and brought to life by a darker blue chapter ring to provide an extra level of depth to proceedings. Quality design and craftsmanship combine to make this the next essential addition to any horology lover’s lineup.
