V1-Gent Watch By Egard Watch Company

The Start Of V1-Gent

The V1-Gent got their start from an incredibly successful campaign that ran on Kickstarter back in 2016. The campaign was live for only 2 hours before it was 100% fully funded and reached all the way up to $100,000 by the end when they were looking for a small goal of only $10,000! Since the huge success of the campaign has ended it has only opened more doors for the company.

Fine Craftsmanship In All V1-Gent Watches

The V1-Gent, created by Egard Watch Company and Gentleman Warfare is an automatic watch  The main idea behind this watch was to create a watch concept that is not only a unique limited-edition luxury watches but is also both durable and affordable. What makes this watch different is that every part of the watch was designed with the greatest details, from th band, stainless steel case construction to the luminous markers on the hands.

Each of the Egard V1-Gent watches come suited in a uniquely crafted stainless steel case measuring 45mm diameter and 11mm thickness. To add the perfect comfort to the wrist, the case has a curved design on the bottom to form the shape of your wrist.  This timepiece houses a Miyota 82S7 Japanese Automatic Movement. The self-winding caliber design can offer power reserve up to 40 hours.

Perfect for everyday use, the watch design encompasses a curved sapphire crystal which is able to take quite the beating without scratching. The reason this watch uses the Sapphire crystal is that of its scratch resistant ability that plastic and glass crystals are unable to take. V1-Gent Specifications

Final Thoughts

After taking the V1-Gent for a beating for the past month I can honestly say this has become one of my everyday watches. Not only do you have something that is slick and stylish with the expensive look to it, but it is able to take the beating and hold up. It’s nice for a change to wear a fancy watch and not have to worry about babying it every step of the day and worrying about hitting it against hard surfaces. Given the time, effort, and materials put into making this watch, we would highly recommend it if you are looking for a stylish yet rugged watch!
