Mercer Watch Co., in the same way as other miniature brands, started life on Kickstarter with its basic watch, the Brigadier. From that point forward, Mercer has developed its list, and a year ago the New Jersey-based brand delivered the Airfoil, a contemporary interpretation of a pilot’s watch with a tasteful that isn’t very new (there are some solid Bremont Solo vibes coming off of this one). At $799, this Sellita SW200-fueled watch sits in a sweet spot for a great deal of watch purchasers, however it’s likewise in a competitive space. As far as the components and details go, the bundle is generally strong. You have a 40mm case accessible in brushed treated steel or dark DLC. The dial is matte dark with applied numerals and markers. The hands are wide, adapted blades emphasized with a straightforward red seconds hand. Super-LumiNova BGW9 illuminates the dial around evening time. Matched with the watch is a cushioned shell cordovan strap.

What makes the Airfoil a smidgen more one of a kind inside its sort is its “Ruggedized” case, which implies that it is covered with a solidifying material that rates to roughly 1200 Vickers (that is more than seven times as hard as the base 316L tempered steel). A hard hit won’t forestall a ding, yet typical day by day wear should mean your case remains moderately sans scratch. It likewise gives the case a one of a kind, fairly smooth feel.
For the full audit of the Airfoil, watch the video below.
All in all, this is moderately compelling bundle. The other thing important is that the watch is amassed in America, which implies that last QC happens here. In the event that the styling addresses you, the specs and the unique case treatment make this one deserving of thought. Mercer Watch Co.
