Why We Love This Watch
Taking it's traditional design cues from deck watches popular with early 20th century sailors, which in turn are descended from earlier marine chronometers, the Melbourne Portsea Calendar is every inch a stunner. The intricately decorated multi-layer ceramic dial is complemented by an elegant hand set featuring a counterbalance on the second hand that can be read as both an "M" and a "W" to represent Melbourne Watch Company. This sophisticated design also incorporates a well balanced triple calendar complication, (weekday, day of month, month,) with the date window nicely centered at 6 o'clock. Rounded off with a high beat automatic mechanical movement for a smoother second hand sweep, the good looks of the Portsea Calendar continue on the back of the watch with a beautiful deep set oil pressed illustration.
Not just a timeless classic suitable for the most sophisticated of occasions, the Melbourne Portsea Calendar is also a practical and robust everyday wear with scratch resistant sapphire glass, a 100 meter water rating that puts most other dress watches to shame, and one of the most reliable movements available. A two year manufacturer's warranty from Melbourne Watch Company doesn't hurt either. Melbourne Watch Company are a well established watch microbrand founded in 2013, with their own in-house service center, and an excellent five star reputation.
