Manchester Watch Works is no stranger to worn&wound, with the brand having successfully launched and delivered numerous projects on Kickstarter (which we covered here and here). They’re back with their latest collection–dubbed the Equinox and named after Mt. Equinox, the highest peak in southern Vermont. The Equinox collection features two distinct models—the Automatic and the Speed Timer.
The dramatic, rectangular case immediately stands out. It measures 37mm across and 43mm in length with hidden lugs. They make a comparison to the size of the Apple Watch which is 1mm smaller in each dimension. The Equinox comes in at 11mm in overall thickness (again with a comparison to the Apple Watch at 12.6mm). Most noticeable in the case design is the large bezel, which features a mix of brushed planes with a polished bezel along the edge. Production models will have vertical brushing rather than the concentric brushing shown on the prototypes. Topping off the case is a sapphire crystal with an internal anti-reflective coating.
