Meccaniche Veneziane Nereide GMT San Marco
These Swiss Made watches are manufactured in Switzerland and feature elabore grade mechanical movements that track a second time zone with an extra 24 hour "GMT" hand, and for those used to GMT hand positions, a third time zone by rotating the bezel.
Each watch has been serviced and specially regulated by The Microbrand Store's watchmaker for the maximum possible accuracy in the dial-up position of ~+/- 2 seconds per day or better.
The MV Nereide GMT comes with vintage leather straps, handmade in Italy, all beautifully presented in a wooden presentation box that is also hand-crafted in Italy.
We also sell an optional MV Jubilee style solid link bracelet for this watch.
Why We Love This Watch
Apart from having great specs, a reliable Swiss mechanical movement, (which is often found in more expensive timepieces,) domed sapphire glass with an anti-reflective coating, Swiss Super-Luminova lume, and a 200 meter water rating, it's all about the looks. Buyers can go for either a classic look that is clearly inspired by and a nod to more famous timepieces from Rolex and others, while still maintaining the individuality of a microbrand, or go with some rich and very distinctive colors that Meccaniche Veneziane bring to the table with their San Marco, Basalto, and Topazio offerings.
The hand-crafted leather straps and their stitching are also very integral to the overall look with perfectly matched rich color options that are very well done. Looks-wise, this attention to detail is carried over with diamond-cut hands and indices, vibrant colors on the enameled bezel, a generous helping of either C1 or Old Radium lume on the hands, applied indices, and bezel pip, and the custom decorated rotor. It seems over 800 backers on Kickstarter felt the same way about the Nereide GMT.
