    • 30 Gennaio, 2020

    Introducing the Maestrale from Viqueria.
    A sleek Titanium timepiece that will take you from your office to the depths of the ocean and everywhere in between. We have designed the Maestrale to be your perfect adventure companion, it’s an extremely wearable timepiece thanks to its elegant but sporty looks.

    Thanks to the Swiss SOPROD C125 GMT movement, visible under a sapphire caseback, travellers could read the time in three time zones simultaneously: one via the central hands; a second via the additional GMT central hand; and a third by aligning the bezel with the central hour hand.

    The Maestrale is enginereed for extreme depths. Waterproof to an extreme depth of 500m/1650ft, the graduated scale stamped on the dial enable divers to safely monitor their dive and decompression times. For excellent legibility in dark conditions, all of the 3 available dials (black, blue and green) features large hour markers and hands filled with C3 luminescent material that emits a long-lasting green glow.



    The 42mm Titanium case was designed to provide the highest degree of resistance and reliability in a size and a weight that remains wearable and practical. Furthermore, on the left side of the case you will find the limited edition number plate of your Maestrale. To enhance the usability, the Titanium bracelet is linked to the case with a fat spring bar that you can easily remove thanks to the drilled lugs.

    Big thanks to Nicolo for sharing his project with us. I look forward to his campaign.



    The decal on the glass back has to go or else come up with a solid back. I'm not a fan of this style case back either. You need a special tool to open it.

    Measure the distance of one of the flat sides to on the other side of the case back. Since there are an odd number of sides they are not directly across from each other. You can measure the distance between sides from more than one angle to get a more accurate measurement.

    A very impressive, standard size, automatic, three hand, GMT, PD, in some outstanding executions, from Viqueria. Thanks for posting this up, Mike.

      Love everything but the caseback shape. I hope they do well

        has an Oris feel to it but certainly is different enough to be its own watch. There are some little details that I like too. Grade 2 Ti scratches pretty easy which you can already see on the bracelet.

        I find myself actually not liking all these video recently being posted that are just pre-release promos for kickstarter watches. I'm not gonna throw a tantrum over them or anything but between all these channels passing them around we're getting fewer reviews of released pieces and all these constantly glowing reviews of watches we won't see for a year.

        is it really important in the grand scheme of things.. nah, just voicing my opinion.

          I like the look, but for $770 on a rubber strap with early bird pricing for an October release. I'd save my money...

          And then there is this... At least they let you know your new watch will definitely get scuffed up.

          "The hardness of titanium is lower than some steels, so it scratches easier than most steel. However, titanium is much much harder than gold, platinum and aluminum. In any case, Titanium has a special characteristic, it's"self-healing". Scuffs and light scratches will slowly disappear over time (huh, say what?) because the scratch exposes an unoxidized portion of the metal which, upon contact with air, begins to oxidize and form patina."
