Nick Munro studied engineering and design at Nottingham University, Imperial College of Science and Technology and The Royal College of Art, London and in 2011, Nick launched his first collection of fashion accessories – the 12:19 watches inspired by the precision and accuracy of the Tokyo railway system.
Found these neat models whilst looking at what was on offer from the “design” aspect of watches available and came across Nick Munro’s range. Quite impressed with the simplicity and neatness of the range and the tidy range of color variations available. Red, Yellow, Green and Blue, with either mesh or leather bracelets.
The dials are simple with good clarity, black hands against the lighter dial background, black seconds hand and a small date aperture @3. A clear view Sapphire crystal, Japanese Quartz movement with date.
Not for night reading but simple a neat pleasing fashion watch for day use that has something rather pleasing about it. Not mainstream, not overly designed, perhaps slightly quirky, but only just and will I’m sure get a few looks from your friends.
The models shown here – are the Square Yellow (or Green, or Blue, or Red) braid Strap Watch series which were inspired by the accuracy and elegance of the Japanese station clock apparently.
Dimensions are 35 mm diameter, Water Resistance – 30 metres and finished in brushed Stainless Steel.
Priced at £125 in the UK they are not unreasonable and just that bit different.
The range can be seen HERE.
