Malbourne Watch Company is taking preorders for their upcoming model, the 36 mm Parkville

In less than a year, Melbourne Watch Company became a household name among fans and collectors of micro-brands. Parkville, their latest project, was created in response to customer feedback requesting a smaller midsize model that would appeal to both men and women, while maintaining the style and the quality, associated with the brand.

In keeping with their mission to celebrate a piece of Melbourne in each design, the case-back engraving features the historic ‘W-Class’ tram, a cultural icon to Melbourne.

For reference, the specs for the Parkville are as follows:

Case – 36mm 316L Stainless Steel, PVD Rose Gold Plating optional. 11mm thickness.
Movement – Seiko NH35A automatic
Crystal – Flat Sapphire
Dial – Multi-layered with rosetta spiral guilloche centre pattern
Hands – Hour/minute/sweep second with signature “M” counter-balance
Strap – 18mm leather, stainless steel buckle
WR – 30m/3ATM
Warranty – 24 months

Perviously, Melbourne Watch Company would launch their models trough a crowd-funding website, but this time, they wish to circumvent that by taking preorders directly on their website. Pricing for the pre-orders starts at $379AUD for the plain steel version and $389AUD for the rose gold plated version.

The Parkville is already in production and will be released in November with an MSRP of $479AUD and $489AUD respectively.

Pre-orders will continue until the production version is released and can be placed via our website:

As a graphic designer, I'm fascinated by the crossroads between technology and aesthetics. Horology is one of these crafts, where art and engineering come together to produce mechanical wonders that grace the eye. WatchPaper was born from the desire to create an online tool where I can share my passion for watches.
