The10 Watches - Gentlemen Chronograph Collection

Hong Kong Based independent watch design studio, The10 watches, has launched its online crowd funding campaign on INDIEGOGO to fund the production run of its chronograph watch collection.

The brand is presently offering ten different styles of chronograph watches based on dial designs: Pilot (Flight), Minimal (Noir, Everyday man), Classic (Pulsation, 70’s), Casual (Pop up, Sundial) and Racing sports (RS I, RS II and RS III). Each of them is carrying its unique character. The basic design of the case remains same in all ten models. Measuring 42mm in diameter, the stainless steel case of the timepiece houses the Seiko VK63 6 hand chronograph movement.
Pulsation: This model takes inspiration from the Pulsometers introduced in the early 1920s. The Pulsometer provides a simple yet reliable method to measure heart rate. The seamless integration of vintage styling and practical function makes this piece irresistible.
RS I: This racing sport inspired timepiece features a high contrast double-layer dial and sub dials which look just like instrument panel. The eye-catching dial arrangement along with the tachymeter and genuine leather NATO strap perfectly fulfil all masculine details and achieve an all-around timeless look.
Everyday man
Everyday man: This minimalistic watch boasts a distinctive innumerate dial. The dial is made readable by subtle cut out markings and decent green colour accent. The chronograph function combined with its effortless style and genuine leather strap makes it an everyday wear.
Noir: Dressed in a black, monotone outfit, this is one of the minimalist watches in the collection. Different shades of black found in the monotone dial enhance the legibility. This day to day wear timepiece comes fitted with a black genuine leather strap.
70s: To get a vintage feel, this model boasts a faded brown and yellow background. The brownish markings, hands, natural brown leather and beige dial are what constitute this classic piece. The simple sub-dial opening and reading demonstrate the timeless character of chronograph watches.
Flight: Taking inspiration from the Pilot watch, this model features white reading on black background for optimal legibility. The black double-layer dial, large numerals, white sub-dial readings and the studded genuine leather strap reminds us a classic pilot watches.
