ManchesterWatchWorks Morgan chronograph

Young watch brand ManchesterWatchWorks has just launched its latest timepiece, the Morgan chronograph on Kickstarter. This sports chronograph takes its inspiration from the automatic chronographs of 1960s. This decade was a golden era for car racing and the first automatic chronographs were also born in this period thanks to the intense competition between big Swiss watch companies to develop self winding chronograph watches. The ManchesterWatchWorks' Morgan chronograph watch pays tribute to fierce sports and engineering rivalries of 1960s. This new watch however comes equipped with a modern quartz movement.
Equipped with an ISA SWISS 8371C quartz movement, the Morgan chronograph’s sweeping central chronograph seconds hands offers the feel of a mechanical chronograph. It also has a sub-dial for running hacking 60 seconds hand at 3’o clock, sub-dial at 9’o lock for measuring 30 minute increments and a sub-dial at 6’o clock for measuring hours elapsed (up to 10 hours).

Positioned with EOL indicator, the ISA SWISS 8371C quartz movement’s battery has a life period of more than 5 years. A window between 4’o clock and 5’o clock indicates date. The Morgan chronograph is also available without date window.
The Morgan chronograph is available with so called "panda" dial offering 3 versions: the blue-eyed panda, the brown eyed panda and the all black panda. Each dial has a slate finish with sunburst finished subdials. It has white lume on dial and hands that glows blue (BGW9 Swiss Superluminova).
Its 40mm diameter case in 316L stainless steel has brushed and polished finish. The case is fitted with raised and beveled sapphire crystal. The Morgan chronograph is water resistant up to 100 meters. This sporty timepiece comes fitted with a quilted pattern black leather strap.

Kickstarter price of the watch starts from $198. Please visit Morgan chronograph’s online crowd funding campaign to pre-order this timepiece.
