I recently got a package from Mitch Mason Watches. As I opened it, I knew it was something special.
But first of all, I want to introduce you to this new brand, this new watch!
The founder of the brand said: “The Mitch Mason Chronicle is our interpretation of the ideal field watch, a perfect mix between modern functionality and vintage design.
The Chronicle is inspired by the military field watches of World War II. It epitomizes the definition of the “daily beater” watch, built as the perfect tool for every situation all year round.”
Sounds good, right?
Inside the package, there was a nice matte black box with the logo. I opened it and I got surprised. The watch was inside a brown travel watch roll made from real leather. It is high-quality leatherwork for sure.
And there it is! I got the “Field Grey” one with leather straps on it.
You can watch my unboxing video on my YouTube channel here.
There are 4 variants of the “Chronicle”, “Steel Blue”, “Jet Black”, the “Desert Sand” and the “Field Grey”.
As I mentioned before the watch came with a nice quick release suede leather strap, it is really comfortable and looks great. Perfect for a “vintage-like” field watch! You can find the brand’s logo on the inside of the strap and the buckle as well.
I truly like the idea of mixing vintage and modern things into a great new combo. This watch embodies it.
The case’s shape looks absolutely like a vintage field watch, it is made from 316L stainless steel. The diameter of it is 36.5mm and the lug to lug size is 43.5mm.
It has a screw-down crown with the Mitch Mason M logo on it. There is a mesmerizing artwork at the case back, it looks exactly like a crest from the Harry Potter movies. Just awesome!
The combination of the dial and the hands are absolutely unique. On this vintage matte dial, the numerals are printed except the 3,6,9 and 12, because they are sandwiched numerals! They are larger than the other numbers as well. The hour hand looks like a fist just pointing to the right time. Really imaginative!
The second hand is blue, it is so conspicuous!
The large numbers, the hour markers, the minute, and the hour hand are luminous (Swiss Super-LumiNova).
The crystal is double-domed sapphire with 10 layers of anti-reflective coating on the underside!
Inside of the watch works a 24 jeweled automatic Miyota 9039 movement with a power reserve of up to 42 hours! Sounds great to me!
The watch has a 200m water resistance!
All in all, this is an awesome watch with incredible features. With an amazing vintage design combined with these great modern features, 100% sure you will get an unbelievable wristwatch!
