Here in Montreal, I’m looking ahead to this winter’s first serious snowstorm, announced for tomorrow, yet me, I’m more bugged by the Australian enigma. Someone, please tell me, what is going on in Australia? I’m serious, what is the secret that Australia — without too much fanfare — is slowly becoming a watchmaking powerhouse?
Ever since the advent of crowdfunding, the Internet got flooded with brands popping up all over the place — which I am happy to witness — yet there is no other place like Australia to come up consistently with brands making stunning watches. You know them too, Melbourne Watch Co, Bausel, Haigh & Hastings and now, there is another newcomer, keeping the same high standard of the others, ERROYL.
Erroyl is debuting with the Heritage Collection, consisting of three models, the E30 Heritage White, E30 Heritage Black and the E30 Heritage Rose (rose gold plated), launched as a Kickstarter campaign.
I won’t go into details of technical specs, it is well equipped with all the good things: 40 mm stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, guilloché dial, automatic Miyota 9015, etc. Let’s leave the pictures do the talking.
If I would have to chose among these three, I would be in serious trouble:
The back is the only thing I would like the talented people at Erroyl to fix. I already wrote about vanilla movements being visible through the back of the watch, if the movements is visible, it needs to have some personalization. This is a minor issue, that I’m sure Erroyl could fix easily and it would be a nice stretch goal.
