We’re forever scouring the world in search of first class watchmakers here at Coolector HQ and it’s pleasing to note that recently more and more are heralding from the United States and the latest to have captured our attention is that of Chicago based, Wolfpoint, and their, frankly brilliant, Fort Dearborn collection of elegant looking timepieces. Billed as a thoughtfully designed watch for any modern gentleman, these great looking timepieces are right up our street and they come in a number of different colorways to suit any style persuasion.
The Fort Dearborn Collection of watches from Wolfpoint boast a mighty wallet friendly price tag of just $199 and when you factor in their compelling style, first class craftsmanship and all-round performance, it’s hard to believe you can get such an accomplished timepiece for such an affordable price. Wolfpoint was founded in 2018 with the desire to make handcrafted quality products at an affordable price more accessible. As individuals who appreciate and understand the importance of quality, they grew weary of the high prices of luxury brands making quality products difficult to be obtained by the average consumer and set about creating affordable watches that don’t scrimp on quality – the Fort Dearborn Collection is one of their debut offerings and a fine example of their endeavours.
Classy Design, Unbelievable Price
It’s rare to get a watch for under $200 these days and rarer still for said timepiece to boast the quality on offer with this superb Fort Dearborn Collection from Wolfpoint. With dials available in six different colours – namely, Gotham Black, Space Grey, Forest Green, Orca White, Chicago Blue and Wolfpoint Blue – you’re definitely going to find one that matches your own unique sense of style. We’ve got a particular penchant for the Chicago Blue version here at The Coolector and would definitely be the one we’d be looking to get on our wrist this Christmas.
Each one of these Wolfpoint Fort Dearborn Watches has been meticulously engineered for quality and style and excels in both areas. This contemporary timepiece offers both precision and character for your wrist for under $200 which, in our opinion, is nothing short of miraculous. This glorious and devilishly dapper timepiece showcases bold features, which includes a polished enamel dial with three contrasting subdials and the coveted day-date indicator—driven by the classic Japanese-made quartz movement, the Miyota 6P29.
Chicago-designed and infused with elegant American aesthetics, this fantastic collection of watches from Wolfpoint was built to last and boasts a high-grade 316L stainless steel case and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal that make it ready for any adventures that you’ll find yourself on. The Fort Dearborn Watch is finished off with an interchangeable, vegetable tanned Horween Leather strap that ages beautifully over time for a versatile and functional timepiece that can be dressed up or down and is suitable for any occasion.
Built To Last
Utterly timeless in style, the majestic looking Fort Dearborn Watches have a stunning polished stainless steel case which features a sapphire crystal for added robustness and maximum scratch-resistance making them ideal for daily wear. The stylised caseback of these watches are adorned with an etched Wolfpoint logo for an heirloom-quality timepiece that belies the sub $200 price tag. The symbolic “Y” represents the iconic fork in the Chicago River that creates the North, South and Main branches of the waterway, bringing a piece of Chicago history everywhere you go.
Seldom will you find a timepiece of this calibre for under $500 let alone under $200 so it’s not hard to see why the Fort Dearborn Watches from Wolfpoint are positively flying off the shelves and you’ll need to move quickly if you want to secure one of these limited edition timepieces for yourself. Great design meets excellent materials to make Wolfpoint a watchmaker we’ll definitely be keeping our eye on in 2020 here at Coolector HQ.
