The brand behind one of the more unique watches we wrote about last year, the Moonphase Watch, is back at it again with a new design. Stockholm-based MAEN Watches has just launched the Manhattan 40 on Kickstarter. Rather distinct from the Moonphase Watch yet still incorporating some of its much-loved elements, the Manhattan 40 is an elegant and premium watch. Six different iterations are available; either with or without a date indicator, with or without a moonphase complication, and in either gold or silver.
The Manhattan 40 sports a very sophisticated look while remaining quite contemporary and understated. It features a flat bezel, keeping its silhouette sleek and clean. An Italian leather strap, sapphire crystal glass, and Swiss Made Ronda movement ensure the watch’s quality and durability. The use of both brushed and polished stainless steel details delivers a really beautiful contrast that adds depth to the overall look of the piece too.
True to form, MAEN has also included a moonphase complication option on the Manhattan 40. If you’re not familiar with what this is, it’s an element on a watch that tracks the movement of the moon. As it moves above you in the sky, so too does a small version of it on the watch’s dial. It’s a really cool and unique addition to the watch, with the yellow moon contrasted nicely against the deep black dial.
A 40mm diameter size, as well as the leather wristband and sleek stainless steel components, come together to make a very distinctive and elegant piece. The Manhattan 40 by MAEN Watches would look right at home when worn with smart casual or formal outfits. It’s the kind of piece you’d turn to when an occasion calls for a more dialed up look than usual.
MAEN Watches is offering some pretty stellar early-bird offers on Kickstarter right now, including a limited run of individually-numbered pieces.
