PREORDER: Indiegogo: The McKinley Watch Co - Skylark Automatic GMT

#1

This is a slightly confusing campaign with a LOT being presented.
They're promoting three watches equally, but two are only stretch goals.
They're also promoting a program where you have a chance for your watch design to be made and get paid for it.
In addition, they're also offering discounted store credit to their site.
So I'll try to boil it down to what they're actually offering, an automatic GMT watch called Skylark.

The only thing that gives me confidence about their ability to delivery is their working with Wiegand Custom Watch, LLC, who run Lum-Tec.

If you want to learn more about submitting your watch design, just go to the campaign link as they explain it there.

Here are the two stretch goal watches, which I hope the Odgen sees the light of day.

That GMT is right up my alley. If I had the budget I'd be backing. Maybe the lugs are a bit long, and I'm not a fan of the special mark for the Indiegogo backers. But for the money I think it's a very good watch.

I wish that watch were 38mm?
