It can feel like a real slog to trudge past the marketing blather and hype and get to the guts of a Kickstarter campaign. Sometimes it can be worth it. The Kickstarter blurb for the Nera watch from Peren seeks to make the most of its “ethereal existence” and “neo-vintage design code,” but save for a few slightly quirky design choices what we have here looks to be an interesting watch with pretty good specs for the early bird campaign prices.
As a bit of background, Peren are a Transylvanian brand who have two successful Kickstarter campaigns under their belt—both for Swiss-made quartz chronographs. The Nera is their first mechanical offering and takes inspiration for the dial and case detail from Transylvania’s Nera gorges (in particular the Devil’s Lake).
