MAEN Watches, known for effortlessly blending classic and contemporay styles, will soon release their new flagship model, the Hudson Automatic. With the Hudson, MAEN is taking the same approach, but in a different direction. No classic dress watch, but a vintage inspired sports watch available in 2 sizes. Besides the 38mm vintage size, they will also offer a more modern size of 42mm.
This high-quality timepiece will be launched on Kickstarter on the 1st of May and you can now sign up here to be notified about the launch.
Housed inside the 316L stainless steel casing is an ETA 2824-2 Swiss made automatic movement. Known as well as the ‘workhorse’.The Hudson has a narrow uni-directional rotating divers bezel with a triangular indicator, screw-down crown and some nice red details here and there to spice things up. Together with the small bezel, the double domed sapphire crystal gives the watch a vintage appeal. The dial has bar markers for hour indices, with a minute track riding the chapter ring or rehaut. The hands are modern, wide, with plenty of lume (C3 superluminova).
Different color combinations will be available and there will be a 10 and 20 ATM option. The 10 ATM model will have an open sapphire caseback and the 20 ATM model a closed steel caseback. Besides the standard model with date, you will also be able to pick a model without date.
All watches will come packed in a luxury watch box together with a free black nato strap, strap tool, warranty cards and instruction manual.
MAEN will offer some pretty stellar early-bird offers on Kickstarter, including a limited run of individually-numbered pieces. Prices on Kickstarter will start from €349,- in limited quantities while the future retail price will be €499,-
