Vintage Driver Chrono by Straton Watch Co.

Born from a passion for racing and watches, Straton Watch Co have launched themselves into the timepiece game with a design inspired by a classic Alfa Romeo. The brand’s first model, the Vintage Driver Chrono takes cues from the designer’s 1977 Alfa Romeo Alfetta GT. This wristwatch showcases careful resemblance to the car’s Veglia Borletti tachometer with the two-digit minute/second markers, and the needle-like wedge of the second hand. The Vintage Driver Chrono is a versatile wrist companion, perfect for a Sunday drive and channels an appreciation for the great outdoors. Its luminescent hands, stainless steel frame and chronographic functionality give it a beautiful retro aesthetic. Having just launched a crowd funding campaign on Kickstarter, the Straton Vintage Driver Chrono comes in five colour variations and backers of the project will receive one plain and two racing striped NATO straps for their support. Join them for an AWESOME ride!

Hi Kyle, just want to say I wear this watch every chance I get and it's still my favorite. It's beautiful. Can't wait for the bag!

Thanks Phil! We have changed the model name of our next watch to Straton Curve-Chrono, new dials are being manufactured and we will be ready to launch the next Kickstarter beginning of April. Thanks for all the support :) regards Kyle

Hi Kyle, you have to look on the bright side. A short delay in bringing your project online is a far better option than getting caught up in copyright dealings with Porsche. Learn from it and come back stronger!

Hi Kyle, will we be getting prior notice of your following projects (like the look of the driving gloves) before it goes live? Cheers, Phil

Review from Kickstarter
From Singapore, got mine 10 minutes ago, frantically ripped the packaging open. It looks beautiful, the leather box is very well crafted and makes a nice presentation and travel box. I got version C and it looks awesome on the blue and orange nato strap. For those with smaller wrists, if the strap is too long, just fold it back and tuck it back underneath. I also paid $0 tax.

@ Straton - Thanks, I'll try that and get back to you if it doesn't work.

Review from Kickstarter
@ Robert Luhrs: Hi Robert, yeah sorry that was a permanent marker that went through the plastic covering the brown watch case maybe a hole in the plastic and it went through. Best way is with a paint remover or what you call thinners or even spray deodorant. But you must not rub hard just gently. If it does not come away I will arrange to send you another. Regards Kyle

Review from Kickstarter
Arrived today and very happy with it! Well done Kyle for turning your idea into reality! Buon Natale!

Review from Kickstarter
Just received mine! (East Coast, USA). Beautiful watch, only issue was the "backer number" marker bled through a little bit onto the case, so there is a black smudge on the case that is kind of disappointing. Anyone have ideas on best way to clean that off? I tried a few things with no luck.. (again, the watch and bands/etc are all perfect, it's just the marks on the top of the case)

Arrived here today. Very happy, the watch is everything I hoped it would be. Looks great and that was an awesomely executed campaign. wd Kyle. Would love a black metal band. Anyone know of anything that might fit?

Review from Kickstarter
Hey Kyle ~ Just thought I'd check in to see if shipments to the US have gone out as well. I haven't heard anything yet on the tracking number, so I was just curious. No emergency....I know you have a lot of watches on the move.
Thank you!

Review from Kickstarter
Hi Kyle, thanks for the tracker number, I picked the watch up today. Very pleased, it looks great! The black case on orange leather is a great combo. Congrats on a great product and a very well run campaign ;-)

Review from Kickstarter
Then considder my question as not asked :)
Straton Watch Co.
Review from Kickstarter
@ Fabian de hoog: if you mean the case back its a screw down case back and its extremely difficult to get it aligned if its a screw down. Even expensive watches with screw down cases have this :) you can google it :)
Straton Watch Co.
Review from Kickstarter
@ Fabian de hoog: Hi Fabian, glad you received your watch safely! When you mean the backplate you mean the caseback? Regards Kyle
Fabian de hoog
Review from Kickstarter
Arrived! Costums was 42 euros for The Netherlands. Very nice watch, happy with it! Just one question: is there a particular reason why the backplate is mounted (let's say) at the 5 o'clock position instead of with the Straton text in a straight line between 9 and 3? :)

@ Phil O'Brien: Thank you Phil! Im glad it arrived safely :) Merry Xmas!

Review from Kickstarter
Just got mine there, was worried I wouldn't as I never received a text. Looks and feels great on, wife got a shock (both the watch and the customs charge when she answered the door, €37 for Ireland) ha.
This has been an excellent project and have enjoyed following it and will now enjoy my watch.
Great work from Kyle keeping us updated throughout and keeping it all on time
Hope everyone enjoys their Christmas,
Phil

Good morning, I just wanted to ask if you know how until all the watches are shipped? I've not received any shipping notification from DHL. Thanks for your time.

@ Bryan Jordan: Hi Bryan, phil is correct your version is I , if you hold the watch in the sunlight its definitely blue, in unnatural light its darker I have mentioned this a number of times :-)
Phil O'Brien
Review from Kickstarter
@ Bryan, it was mentioned that the blue dial in some light may appear black, so I'd say it's correct.
I've ordered the same model, still waiting for it to arrive so can't fully confirm, but I'd say you have the right one
Bryan Jordan
Review from Kickstarter
I just got my watch. It is supposed to be a model I. I think it is, but the blue dial is very dark. Is there any way to verify that it is actually a blue dial/model I? Either way, It looks great and arrived in perfect condition.

Just received the watch. Arrived in perfect condition. Feels great on the wrist. Everything from quality to packaging is superb. Great work Kyle! Looking forward to the Targa!

Review from Kickstarter
Mine arrived safe and sound, customs stung a bit (here in Ireland), but the whole package is great, from the case to the watch. straps are great, just trying them all on...Thanks a mill from Ireland!
Jimme Boelema
Review from Kickstarter
Yes, just received the watch just now and it is perfect! You have done a very good job on this watch Kyle! It feels really solid, but not too big. The leather strap is really nice and the NATO straps are beautiful and fit very well. The silicon is my less favorite. Even the tool looks and feels very nice ;-) The engraved picture of the GTV on the back plate is also very nice, I drive a 916 GTV myself. The whole package is just great!
