THE CHAMPLAIN ALL PURPOSE WATCH (Last one!)
Introducing the Champlain Explorer
To commemorate our 6th year, we harkened back to the roots of MWW's birth state - Vermont - and the great explorer, cartographer, geographer - Samuel de Champlain, who's name graces Vermont's largest lake.
Our rugged, 100 meter water resistant case would have been the perfect travel companion for wherever the explorer journeyed. The extremely light titanium keeps the wearer unburdened. And we know adventure seekers come in all sizes and shapes so this piece is comfortably sized for any wrist. The time is extremely easy to read in daylight and darkness with the large, torch lumed hour markers and equally lumed, heat blued hands. Tree branches or rocks or bears scratching the harder-than-diamond sapphire crystal? No way. Comfort is key and the vintage styled, strong-yet-supple Italian leather strap does not disappoint. Best of all, the deceptively simple design transitions flawlessly from rural to urban landscapes.
We're planning on making only 99 of these beauties because we believe exclusive, boutique craftmanship should be available to all.
