Melbourne Watch Company: Flinders Automatic Watch

Melbourne Watch Company

Sujain Krishnan of Melbourne Watch Company has cooked up one incredible looking watch.  Armed with  stainless steel case, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, Miyota Cal. 9015 self-winding movement,  and genuine leather straps,  the Flinders Automatic watch is quite impressive.  What remains interesting about the Flinders is Sujain’s choice to implement the Miyota Cal. 9015 movement. The Miyota Cal. 9015  is a Japanese movement that is  amazingly accurate, incredibly smooth and extremely reliable.  I’m sure Sujain had a few options to choose from, but choosing a movement that is highly reputable  among the watch community, and the arm of Citizen watches proves Sujain wasn’t out to cut corners. And  as an end result, the Melbourne Watch Company has managed to create one great looking watch that will last for years to come.

  Named after Melbourne’s iconic Flinders Street Station, I wanted our first timepiece to be one which would not look out of place among higher end watches. Additionally, I wanted to give buyers the combination of a high quality mechanical movement, a slim case and affordable price tag.

The case for the Flinders is a high grade 316L stainless steel with a slim case height of only 9.8mm. This will allow the Flinders to be easily slipped under a shirt cuff for use with a suit, or to simply be comfortable for everyday wear.

I wanted the Flinders to have a unique touch to it, so I designed the sweep seconds hand to feature the “M” from our company logo. Unlike quartz watches, the sweep seconds hand of a high beat automatic watch glide smoothly around the dial.

The Flinders will come with a genuine leather strap (20mm tapering to 18mm) with stitching and an engraved thumbnail style buckle. The white dial version will come with a brown strap with white stitching and the black dial version will come with a black strap with black stitching.

The dial is multi-layered and features a guilloche centre and stainless steel markers. The date will be shown at the 3 o’clock position. There are two colour options – a white dial with silver markers and black hands or a black dial with silver markers and silver hands. The dial and hands are framed by flat, anti-reflective sapphire glass.

The Flinders caseback features a sapphire glass display which will show off the Miyota movement as it ticks away. The caseback itself is engraved with the text “Flinders Automatic Movement Stainless Steel” and also features our company logo and a serial number.
