The Intrepid

From Kobold

We don't hear as much as we once did about Kobold watches these days.  Word around the campfire is that Michael Kobold is focussing upon charitable endeavors and if that is indeed the case, more power to him!  But Kobold is still in the business of making and selling watches, and this one caught my eye.

The case is of stainless steel and measures 44 mm in diameter.  At a time where chronographs are "under dressed" unless they have thirty additional complications this one is wonderfully, blessedly straightforward and clear.  Hours, minutes, seconds and a chronograph function that only measured elapsed time.  The crown and pushers have received a DLC treatment.

The movement is the Valjoux 7750.

Available direct from Kobold for a reasonable $3,350
