MVMT (pronounced movement) has come a long way since it launched nearly a year ago. The brand of minimalist watches went to Indiegogo to launch a crowdfunding campaign, it was only looking for $15,000, but it ended up raising a whopping $200,000.
The folks over at MVMT were kind enough to send us two of their watches to cover here on UltraLinx - the all black with a black leather strap and the white/silver with tan leather.
The first thing I loved about the watches is how minimalistic they are. They have very simple faces with a small MVMT logo at the top in place of where the twelfth hour would be. They're designed to be easy to read and not have a bunch of dials and details everywhere like some other mens watches.
The front has a glass face with a stainless steel frame which feels very premium in the hand, but it thankfully doesn't weigh down on the wrist, it has a nice weight.
The straps are made from genuine leather keeping in line with the premium feel. After wearing one of watches for a week, the straps are very comfortable, don't itch and scratch like some metal straps would.
Probably most interesting about the watch is that it only costs $95 which is more than affordable. It easily feels like a $200-400 watch, and looks it too. The aim was to make a fantastic premium looking watch but also make it very affordable, MVMT have done a great job with that.
The competition has now come to an end. Winners will be emailed so make sure to keep an eye on your emails if you entered!
