I am a watch enthusiast and I often keep myself updated about the new launches and latest trends from the watch industry worldwide. I was too excited to discover this brand – Styrman & Crew. Styrman & Crew is a German watch brand founded by Nicolas Bartschat and Fabian Weis. The two young engineers were motivated by the thought that sustainability ought to be possible with classical watches, too. Their first model was “Magellan”.
The straps are produced in Germany and certified according to ECARF, IVN, and Biokreis. Styrman & Crew follows an environmentally friendly manufacturing processes. Styrman & Crew also uses natural leather that is tanned with fruits and rind coming from organic animal husbandry.
Styrman & Crew timepieces are equipped with a Swiss quartz movement (704, or 784 movements depending on the diameter of the watch case) manufactured by Ronda. The stainless steel case is fitted with a sapphire glass. The watches are available in two sizes – 36mm|40mm and are water resistant up to 5ATM. The watches are equipped with interchangeable straps with pin buckle clasp. You can configure your Styrman in Rosegold or Silver. The dial is simple yet classy.
Styrman & Crew stands for best quality with a clean conscience. Styrman & Crew timepieces are 7 mm thick. They are available with or without a date option. What I like the most about these watches are the colors of the strap in ten shades. The watches are shipped in a wooden box recycled from Balinese shipping boats.
The SMART RELEASE SYSTEM allows you to switch your strap within seconds! Without any tools! Without any compromises!
Since its establishment, Styrman & Crew has sold hundreds of watches. Now the brand has launched a campaign on the crowd-funding platform Kickstarter. During the campaign, the backers can pre-order the Styrman & Crew watch with a discounted price starting from 129 Euros. They’ve chosen this medium in order to reach more potential customers and, at the end of the day, convince more consumers to shop responsibly. Fabian Explains “We hope that by doing this, our vision will inspire more people who will, in turn, learn to care for our natural habitat“.
