TRAVISLEON Heirloom Series

Singapore based micro watch brand TRAVISLEON announces its debut in the watch making arena by launching Heirloom collection. This young watch brand was co-founded by Travis, a commercial airline pilot & Leon, a software evangelist.  In 2014, both of them came together with the sole intent of crafting game-changing mechanical timepieces that would become the de facto in collectible timepieces.

Their debut collection, the Heirloom Series takes inspiration from one of the most iconic and classic watch lines in the traditional watch making industry. The "Heirloom Series" is inspired by the classic Calatrava-styled watches introduced in the 1930s by Patek. The style is inspired by the Bauhaus principles that based on a minimalist approach.
The Heirloom dial took the minimalist timeless approach. The dial is marked with index stick to enhance its simplicity.
The minute index is dictated with raised dots for its elegancy. The dauphine-styled hands provide good legibility.
The stainless case (also available with rose gold PVD-IP) of Heirloom measures 40mm in diameter and 10mm thick, including the domed Sapphire crystal. The bezel is designed to be tall and thin so that it could show off the dial to a greater effect and making the watch appear larger.
The case comes with fine radial satin finishing on the lugs and polished edges to produce the texture and depth to bring out the characteristics of the watch case.
The lugs are long and curved, ending below the caseback, enhancing the fit against the wrist for comfort.
The Heirloom comes with a croc-grain leather strap in either black or brown. With a 22mm lug, the Heirloom fits a wide range of strap types and colours for different occasions. The buckle comes with an engraved TRAVISLEON logo and a polished finish that matches the case.
The Heirloom is equipped with the popular Miyota 9015 automatic movement featuring customized rotor with rose gold PVD-IP and Geneva pattern engraving.
