BOVARRO MOON 1969 Automatic

Based in Canada, the founders of Ferro Watches launch a new Swiss watch brand named BOVARRO. The debut collection of the brand is a Swiss made watch series inspired by Apollo 11 lunar mission conducted in 1969. To fund the initial mass production of the Moon 1969 watch, Bovarro has launched online crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter.
The BOVARRO Moon 1969 watch collection is available in four series: 3 models – Lunar, Orbit and Celestial - feature stainless steel case. The fourth model is offered in an 18 carat gold case.
The Moon 1969 watch takes its design inspiration from the Apollo 11 spacecraft for example; the bezel fixed with 8 screws resembles the hatch on the Apollo 11 spacecraft and the crown looks like the knob on the right side of the hatch.
The easy to read, black dial of the Moon 1969 Lunar Series model boasts luminescent hour markers and indexes, luminescent moon at 6ó clock, date window at 3ó clock.
In Orbit and Celestial models, the brand has chosen a minimalistic, index free dial. The central dial features small dots as minute markers and date at 4.30h. In Orbit series the dial features four large, luminous dots respectively at 12, 3, 6 and 9ó clock. In Celestial version, the large dots at 12, 3, 6 and 9ó clock have been omitted.
In all three models, the configuration of hands remains same: Two large, luminous hands respectively for hour & minute indications and a sweep central seconds hand with arrow tip.
On the top, its stainless steel case is fitted with a brush finished bezel secured with 8 screws. A double domed, scratch resistant sapphire crystal glass with anti reflective coating guards the watch face.
The screwed in, stainless steel case back protects the timepiece in the rear side. It has an engraving of the Moon at the centre. The large, screwed-down crown ensures high level of water resistance and the luminous details on the dial and hands ensures legibility even during dark conditions.
Inside each timepiece, beats a Swiss made ETA 2824-2 self winding movement bearing 25 jewels. Beating at the rate of 28,800 vph the movement can deliver a power reserve up to 36 hours when fully wound.
The shining star of the Moon 1969 collection is Gold Watch Limited Edition Series, planned in an exclusive numbered edition of 99 pieces. This rose gold timepiece features the same aesthetic designs of Lunar Series. Crafted in 18 carat rose gold (case, crown, case-back and buckle), this special timepiece is the most expensive wristwatch ever offered in a Kickstarter campaign.
The stainless steel (Lunar, Orbit and Celestial) models in is available in two case sizes: 40mm & 46mm where as the limited edition gold series comes is available only in 46mm size. The 40mm size enables the female clientele also to enjoy wearing the Moon 1969 watch.
Water resistance of stainless steel watches is 100 meters and the gold watch is water resistant up to 50 meters. Each Automatic Swiss Made Bovarro watch is paired with an Italian leather strap with a choice of black or brown colour.
During the Kickstarter campaign the customers can order any of the stainless steel models by pledging an amount of $ 779CAD (Appx US$ 599) or more. The backers can also order the limited edition gold watch (99 pieces only) by pledging an amount of $ 8000CAD (US$ 6153). Estimated delivery is planned in May 2017.
