Visitor Watch Co. Returns with Five New Releases
We previously heard from Visitor Watch Co. in late 2014 as they dispatched their debut piece, the Calligraph Duneshore through an effective Kickstarter crusade . Our own Zach Weiss had the option to get a hands on with the Duneshore and gave worn&wound perusers an intensive stroll through of the remarkable watch. In the time that has passed Visitor Watch Co. has not been standing around. They have had a couple of things in progress and decided to declare them throughout the span of a work-week during February and March (2016, for those perusing from what’s to come). From Monday, February 29th to Friday, March 4th the brand displayed an amazing five new deliveries. Four of the new things are worked from the Calligraph line and offer a few qualities, as we will see, with the fifth coming from their new Officer line.
February 29: Calligraph Linden
The first arrival of the week is the new Calligraph Linden. The Linden gets the dial and hands from the Duneshore, however puts them in a more modest more customary styled 3-piece case. The case measurements come in at 39mm in width, 10.5mm thick; carry to drag it estimates 48.5mm and has 20mm carries. Where the Duneshore has a pad case style the Linden is unquestionably a stage more towards a more classic round watch case. The measurements put it nearby a “modern” estimated dress watch which gives off an impression of being the stylish Visitor was after.
The 3-piece case has both brushed and cleaned completes alongside bored drags, just as sapphire precious stones on and back (against intelligent covering on the front just) and a Miyota 9015 development with a custom rotor. The dial and hands, as referenced, come from the Duneshore, yet will be offered in extra tones in the Linden line. The date wheel on all dial tones is dark with BGW9 luminated numbers; the one of a kind hands and markers share that equivalent lume. The Linden is a stage in a more customary look while as yet keeping up the interest from the Duneshore hands and dial. Estimating is required to be set around $550 USD.
March 1: Duneshore Bracelet
The Tuesday discharge was not really another watch but instead a component for the Dunshore. As the name above applies, it is a bracelet for the Calligraph Duneshore model. The bracelet is a beads-of-rice style (with each “bead” molded to reflect the hour indicies on the dial). The bracelet has a somewhat huge clasp highlighting the Visitor Watch Co. logo with the clasp sharing the pad style of the case. Last valuing isn’t yet set however expected to be around $100 USD.
March 2: Duneshore Shallows
The mid-week discharge was the Duneshore Shallows, a jumper portrayal of the Duneshore watch. The Shallows has similar relative measurements as the Duneshore (44mm in distance across, 51mm drag to haul and 22mm carries), most all the other things has changed. First the water obstruction was expanded from 100M to 200M by utilizing a strong case back, expanding the thickness of the mass of the focal case by 1mm, adding an extra seal to the screw-down crown and a 3mm thick sapphire gem. To keep the measurements equivalent to the Duneshore implied managing the dial by 2mm and utilizing new hands. The moment hand currently has a bigger lume territory, and bolder shape to it, giving it more emphasis.
The dial stays as before, just with no date window this time and the glow has changed from BGW9 to C3 SuperLuminova. The caseback is intriguing as it is a bended, strong back with a sculptural ocean lion holding the Visitor Watch Co. entryway knocker in its mouth. It’s perhaps the most sensational case backs we’ve at any point seen, and an incredible expansion to the watch. In conclusion, they added an extremely cool, domed pivoting bezel, with lumed markers processed in.
The Duneshore Shallows will be offered on the new Dunshore Bracelet just as another elastic tie. At present the bezel is a 120-click uni-directional bezel, anyway notwithstanding the declaration the bezel configuration is as yet in transition and could change before the watch is completely delivered. Valuing is as of now assessed to be in the $750 territory, and will be accessible with blue-green, white, blue or orange dials.
March 3: Duneshore & Duneshore Shallows Blacksand
On the impact points of the Duneshore Shallows, Visitor added a DLC choice for both Duneshore models, called the Blacksand. Both the Duneshore Blacksand and the Duneshore Shallows Blacksand add an impacted dark DLC finish to the watches with a dark dial on the Duneshore and dull dim on the Shallows and a dark, rubber treated material tie. The remainder of the highlights of the individual watches continue as before, including the hands, dial and case styles. You can hope to pay around $30 more per model for the Blacksand rendition of the watches.
March 4: Vale Park Officer
The last of the five new deliveries is the principal watch in Visitor Watch Co.’s new Officer line, the Vale Park Officer. The 41mm case (44.2mm across to the furthest limit of the crown) has a blend of bended and straight areas and a mix of cleaned and brushed completions. The case has a nearly window like plan, and truth be told when you flip the watch over you can uncover a perspective on the development (behind sapphire) in the wake of opening a pivoted, tracker style case back. The back stays closed by means of the screw down crown, which when unscrewed a tad will permit the catch-lip to release.
The Miyota 9015 rotor has been modified to show the Visitor Watch Co. token in a sensational style. The dial has a matte dark completion and is a sandwich development with cross-hair and hour markers trim out to permit the C3 SuperLuminova to radiate through. The markers at 12, 3, 6 and 9 are a triangle of three specks while different hours have a wide tear shape. The moment track around the outside of the top dial is likewise lumed in C3, similar to the (something else) dark hour, moment and seconds hand. The Vale Park Officer is a fascinating watch and is relied upon to sell for around $800 USD when authoritatively released.
Visitor Watch Co.’s point is to “offer startling plans with surprising details” and hopes to have proceeded with their subject with these new pieces. They have figured out how to change and develop the first Dunshore into the Linden and Dunshore Shallows while likewise adding DLC covering as a choice just as another piece. The Vale Park Officer is another idea from the brand that is energizing. While a novel plan, it especially keeps the vibe of the Duneshore, making a line of watches with a weird and fascinating stylish.
