PREORDER: Kickstarter: Porthal - Peacemaker

#1

Post by TheJohnP » Thu May 12, 2022 9:32 pm

Porthal (or rather pOrthal), out of the Netherlands, have launched their first Kickstater for their debut model, the Peacemaker.


Early Founders pricing is around $495
Regular Founders pricing is around $568
Standard pricing will be about $812

Estimated delivery is October 2022

We started pOrtahl to incorporate these customized watch styles popularized by the artisans into our brand DNA. We do this by making it our mission to create watches that are remarkable by their color, material and design.

Far and wide I will find 'em and I ride 'em
Bricks and mortar get my licks just for kicks
AD or authorized I don't analyze
Retail, wholesale never fail
Online or offline, I find I don't redefine
Too big to fail or yard sale they all hale
Run or hide just for fun deals I find

I noticed this has a STP movement in it. Funny enough, the Zodiac Jet-o-matic with STP movement that I got at a nice price through this forum is currently being repaired. I thought the crown was loose, but it turns out that a couple of the gears inside have missing teeth! Watchmaker says compared to ETA and even Sellita, the movement (to him at least) seems cheaply made. He actually offered to swap it out with a 2824 but I don't wear it often enough that I wanted to overhaul it like that.
