Introducing Moto Koure
In the Microbrand galaxy, 2016 brings a new star, the Sydney Australia-based Moto Koure that wants to blend the spirit of racing cars from the 60’s and 70’s with fine watchmaking. Their debut collection, the MK I was named after the legendary Jaguar MK and beyond the name, the layout of the dial is inspired by the dashboard of the classic car.
There are two versions of the MK I, an automatic using the Seiko NE88 column wheel chronograph, and a mecha-quartz powered by the Seiko VK series.
The automatic features a multi-layer dial with a wooden insert. This particular feature was intended to be associated with a dashboard of a vehicle from this era and is very much intended to be an elegant feature of the watch. This is in contrast to the chrono dial and hands, which are brought to life by orange lame and which are more racing themed.
The colour options are blue, British racing green, brown or champagne.
The mecha-quartz will come in two styles. One will have a pebbled leather texture while the other will feature a diamond plated texture which is a grittier version of this watch.
