The Collins Mechanical Watch is Redefining The Minimalist Timepiece

Taking simplicity to a whole new level without sacrificing aesthetics.

Jimmy Collins is a self-proclaimed watch guy through and through, and by the looks of his first foray into the world of timepieces, we’d have to agree. Unlike a number of watchmakers who take on the minimalist aesthetic who ultimately fail in the end by overdoing the overall design, Collins has managed to get things just right. Drawing inspiration from the audio recording arena, this automatic field watch makes a strong case for the first watch anyone looking to upgrade should grab.

Paying homage to precision studio equipment, while keeping the look and feel of the iconic flieger-style field watch intact, this piece gives a nod to several elements of recording gear including a distinctive “volume knob” crown, the second hand which resembles the needle of a volume unit meter, and the slashed zero on the dial that looks like the “0” on an early synthesizer. Not to be outdone by other timepieces in the same lane, the Collins Watch sports a unique Sapphire Crystal coated with anti-reflective material making it almost impervious to scratches.

Movement is provided by Japanese NH35A, meaning it’s definitely built to last, has an excellent power reserve of up to 41 hours and is highly accurate to say the least. Sporing a 40mm stainless steel case which also comes in bead blast silver and black, you can also swim, shower or even bathe in this bad boy since it’s water resistant up to 100 meters. A three-hand dial with date complication and thickly applied Super LumiNova Old Radium means it glows in the dark, and it’s finished off with a genuine leather band and available green and black all-weather nylon Zulu straps .
