Straton Watch Co. is at it again on Kickstarter with their bold new Legera model, a retro-styled chronograph that manages to balance a number of different design elements into a cohesive — and what I think is a fun — package. Bright colors, funky shapes, and a mix of polished and brushed finishes can all be seen in various parts of the Legera, but Straton has paid attention to more than just the design details — the watch has a solid set of specs too.
Each variant features a case crafted from 316L grade stainless steel. There’s an additional black case that utilizes a DLC coating to achieve a stealthy and handsome looking finish. There are two case styles — the Standard (44 x 50 millimeters) and the Bullhead (42 x 48 millimeters) — each available with a Seiko Meca-quartz or Valjoux 7750 automatic mechanical movement. Protecting the dial is a domed sapphire crystal, which is surrounded by a 120-click, 12-hour GMT bezel. Smaller details include a screw down crown, and a case rated to 100 meters of water resistance. When the lights go out, you’ll notice the generous application of BG W9 luminous paint on the main handset, chronograph hands, and even in the numerals on the GMT bezel.
