The BOLDR Journey

BOLDR Sopwith
BOLDR Journey Chronograph Sopwith: Silver Orange dial with Dark Bourbon Strap

The company’s latest launch, the BOLDR Journey, is built on the popular BOLDR Voyage concept. A vintage, aviator-inspired design, and the unique Seiko meca-quartz movement are the key features of the watch. Its dome-shaped, durable box mineral glass lens brings a vintage look whilst creating a curve canopy surface. This allows light to create a soft, even tone on the textured watch face.

The Seiko VK64 Meca-Quartz Movement consists of a hybrid of quartz and mechanical mechanisms for the chronograph. It gives off mechanical vibes whilst containing a quartz crystal. The timekeeping mechanism is essentially quartz. With such precision and legibility of the Journey watch, you’ll never miss a second.

What’s special about the Journey is that it features a limited-edition art piece on the case back that is designed by Malaysian tattoo artist, Kevin Elijah Tan. Each watch is carefully created to represent each BOLDR watch. This is BOLDR’s first watch that encompasses limited-edition designs, available only on Kickstarter.


Specifications of BOLDR Journey

The specifications of Journey comprises of marine-grade stainless steel and a premium calf leather strap. With its current stretched goal above $100k CAD, a free silicon strap will be available for each order!

The double-layered sandwich dial design really brings the bold theme across. Oozing with modern style is the two distinct sub-dials, one on the left for the chronograph’s minute indicator and the other on the right with a 24-hour indicator.

Available in 3 styles: Sopwith, Wasp, and Warhawk.

The BOLDR Journey fits both men and ladies and it comes in a variety of colours. To honour its vintage aircraft rooted design, each model is named after a mechanical aircraft.

With such meticulous design and high-end specifications, it comes as no surprise that The Journey has stormed past its funding target on Kickstarter. We’re sure getting one of these watches for ourselves.
Here’s your chance to support local and get your very own BOLDR Journey. Back them up on their Kickstarter project now. The campaign ends on 3 July. Production is set to start immediately, with the first delivery to be shipped out in September.
