Mercer Watch Co. Airfoil Automatic Giveaway

Mercer Watch Co. Airfoil Automatic

Mercer Watch Co. Airfoil Automatic

Mercer Watch Co. is a really prolific microbrand that never ceases to surprise me. Earlier this year, I had the pleasure to review the Mercer Watch Co. Brigadier Chronograph, which was on Kickstarter at that time. The campaign was a success, but in the meantime, Scott Vuocolo, the founder of Mercer was already busy working on a project that would take his brand to a new level, the Airfoil Automatic. I did not saw the Airfoil except the pictures that I’m posting here, and I think we agree, it looks amazing! The specs are just as impressive as the design:

  • 40mm diameter by 11 mm hardened stainless steel case (1200 Vickers – over 7 times harder than the base 316L stainless steel)
  • Sellita SW200-1 26 jewel Swiss automatic movement
  • Matte black dial with polished steel numbers & indices
  • SuperLuminova BG-W9
  • Colour matched date wheel with date at 6 o’clock
  • 20mm lug width
  • Fine shell cordovan straps in cognac or black
  • 10 ATMs water resistance (100 meters)
  • Signed, screw down crown
  • Two-year limited warranty

What is even more impressive, the Airfoil is assembled in the USA, giving Mercer a tighter control over the quality.

There is no Kickstarter this time and the pre-order period has already started on the Mercer website, with shipping expected to start in October/November of 2016. The pre-order price is $899, instead of the regular $1,199, but since this is a giveaway story, here is your chance to win Mercer Watch Co. Airfoil Automatic

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.
