If I told you that you’d be reading a review about a mechanical hand wound chronograph from Kickstarter that looks like a watermelon, would you believe me? Well, believe it because here we are. Studio Underd0g is a new brand from the UK who recently crushed their latest Kickstarter project to bring three fun bicompax chronographs into fruition (yes, watermelon pun). While the bright pink and neon green “Watermel0n” model is the standout, their other two offerings show much more restraint.
The trio of watches includes the “Desert Sky” — with a light blue and tan color way, the “Go0fy Panda” — a black and off-white model with bamboo green accents, and the “Watermel0n” — it looks like a watermelon with seed-shaped indices and all. While there’s some playfulness to the branding design, the watches pack a lot of small details and tasteful design cues into the dial and case. Let’s take a closer look at Studio Underd0g’s freshman offerings. First up, some specs.
