“Watches, Stories, and Gear” is a roundup of some of our favorite watch content on Worn & Wound, great stories from around the web, and cool gear that we’ve got our eye on.
This installment of “Watches, Stories, and Gear” is brought to you by Richard Mejer and their new Automatisk collection, the brand’s first watch to feature a mechanical movement.
The Automatisk is an evolution of Richardt Mejer’s unique design aesthetic, one that began with the brand’s excellent Signature line. Measuring 38.5mm across, the angular case of the Automatisk is tempered by its size, resulting in a watch that’s actually quite versatile on the wrist. The case finishing is brushed all over, giving the watch a cool, almost tool-like aesthetic, while at the same time remaining elegant enough to work with a suit.
The Automatisk’s layered “bullseye” dial features two layers: a lower portion finished with a matte surface, and an upper level with a fine sunray finish. Stair-shaped markers with Super-LumiNova are applied at 12, 3, 6, and 9:00, and further contribute to the visual dimensionality of the dial. There are four dial colors to choose from: Stone, Moss, Plum, and the latest addition to the lineup, Dark. The Dark variant features matte surfaces for both the lower and upper levels of the dial, and it’s housed in a cool gunmetal case. Yellow is the accent color of choice here, and it’s featured on the text and Super-LumiNova.
