Welcome to the Worn & Wound Micro-Brand Digest, a semi-monthly roundup of all the new micro-brand news we’re following, from concepts that show promise, to kickstarter launches to restocks, and everything in between. Small independents, and affordable micro-brands spurred the creation of Worn & Wound over 10 years ago, and they still drive our enthusiasm in a big way.
Here’s what’s caught our eye this month.

VStelle bills itself as a lifestyle brand whose timepieces are “creatively rooted in vivid minimalism”. While our definitions of minimalism may differ, their V-Apostle collection of
watches timepieces indeed puts forth a refreshingly clean aesthetic that askew the sport watch genre altogether in favor of something straightforward and even handsome. The chapter ring within the rehaut consists of every number between 1 and 60 to mark off each second with no ambiguity. The hours are pulled toward the center of the dial to fill more of the real estate within this 42mm case. Inside, VStelle is using a Miyota automatic movement. Available dial colors are white and black, as you’d expect, and a lovely muted blue. The V-Apostle is now live on Indiegogo at an early bird price of $281. More from VStelle.
