As a reminder, even though MoT's is a free site, we do rely on two methods lights on. One is a referral generator that creates (mostly) unobtrusive links. This depends on the site being whitelisted in any ad-blocking software you use. If you could please whitelist this site, we would be ever thankful. (We promise there are no pop-ups, pop-unders or other annoying distractions.)

The other method is donations from members and visitors. These are completely voluntary and there is no obligation. Any donations go directly towards site operations and are greatly appreciated. Click here to donate today.


Thank you!

This is the first Kickstarter from Phantom Watch Co, which is part of Hamtun Watches (Ross is a co-owner of Phantom), which started delivering the Kraken. From what it appears, both brands are under the British Watches branding umbrella.


The first 24 hours or first 100 sold are priced at £159 (all gone now!)
Super Early Bird pricing is about $219
Early Bird pricing is about $232
Regular Kickstarter pricing will be about $245

Estimated deliver is October 2020

Far and wide I will find 'em and I ride 'em
Bricks and mortar get my licks just for kicks
AD or authorized I don't analyze
Retail, wholesale never fail
Online or offline, I find I don't redefine
Too big to fail or yard sale they all hale
Run or hide just for fun deals I find

Honestly a good value proposition.
I personally can't get over the hands to dial ratio, though. That hour hand is especially diminutive compared to everything else and feels like an afterthought.

I commented on that pre-campaign on their KS preview page. The owner said its going to stay that way.

If it was just slightly longer and fatter, it’ll look much better and balanced. Image
