This month on aBlogtoWatch, you can enter for a chance to win a very strong entrant from an independent watch brand that is based in Melbourne, Australia. This is the Melbourne Watch Company Portsea Automatic, and it is meant to be a modern interpretation of a classic marine-themed instrument watch. Today, such designs take on a decidedly dressy appeal, even though at heart they are utilitarian designs. aBlogtoWatch offered a review of the Melbourne Watch Company Portsea timepiece here.
At 40mm wide, the version you can win is the rose gold-toned steel case model with a blue leather strap. The dial is given added depth by the use of a white ceramic ring that has the hour markers as well as calendar data printed on it. Melbourne Watch Company really wants to focus on the marine/boat theme without making the watch too kitschy, something that they have arguably succeeded at doing. Inside the watch is a Japanese Miyota caliber 9120 automatic movement that offers the time and triple calendar complication, with a date window and subdials for the day of the week and the month. Retail price for the Melbourne Watch Company Portsea Automatic is $675.42 USD, and one lucky person will win one by entering below this month on aBlogtoWatch.
