Finn Watches - The Causeway and Fingal’s Cave

This new watch brand, established by Richard Dunlop, takes its inspiration from Irish mythology. Based in Northern Ireland, Finn has recently announced its debut timepiece that boasts a unique hexagonal watch case fused with minimalistic design principles.

Made up of thousands of massive black basalt columns sticking out of the sea, Giant’s Causeway in Northern Ireland is a UNESCO world heritage site and a popular hot spot for tourists from all over the world. According to Irish mythology, Giant’s Causeway was built by Irish giant Finn McCool. The unique shape of the hexagonal rocks of the Giant’s Causeway was the inspiration behind Finn’s first watch collection.
Two versions will be offered from the debut collection: The Causeway and Fingal’s Cave. Both timepieces are powered with Swiss made quartz movement. Finn has chosen Ronda 713 calibre which is known for its reliability and accuracy.
The hexagonal shaped case measures 44mm from 9 to 3’o clock, and 41mm from 10 to 4’o clock. The watch case of Causeway model is made of brushed stainless steel with polished sides and back.
Available in white and black versions, dial of this model features embossed hexagon design matching its exterior aesthetics. The dial boasts printed Arabic numerals for 12, 3, 9 & 6 hour markers, black or silver minute & hour hands with luminous and green seconds hands. 
The Fingal’s Cave version has a black Ion plated case. Fingal’s Cave version is inspired by the dark black stones of Fingal’s Cave on the Island of Staffa, just off the West coast of Scotland.
These timepieces are paired with Chocolate, Tan or Black Crazy Horse leather strap with green stitching. With of the strap is 22mm, also they are comfortable, durable and unique look to the timepieces. The beautiful combination of green second hand, markers and strap stitching pays tribute to Ireland’s colour.
Finn has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund the production run of its debut collection. By backing this online crowd funding campaign, supporters can order the timepiece with a discounted price starting from £ 90. Delivery of the product is planned in Dec 2016.
