About a year ago, they launched their first watch on Kickstarter. The Monchard Skytoucher GMT. It was a great success, thanks to their wonderful backers, without whom, they would not be where they are today. After the GMT, they received lots of requests to make an automatic version of the Skytoucher. Well, they listened and now they bring you the “Skytoucher Automatic”.
Perhaps the biggest change to the Skytoucher is the movement. Unseen to the wearer, it reliably ticks away behind the decorated case back. The movement they chose for the Automatic is the Miyota cal. 9015, one of the top movements from Miyota. It’s a date complication movement that beats at 28.800 bph, giving the second hand a smooth 8 beats per second motion. Coming from one of the biggest manufacturers in Japan, powering countless watches around the world, a 42 hours power reserve, 24 jewels and shock absorbed balance staff we said this was the right movement for them.
