Watch enthusiast Quentin Trudeau created the Plan B Edmonton timepieces for wrists seeking a luxe, contemporary aesthetic with a down-home, throwback price tag. Now he's brought his design to Kickstarter in hopes that your wrist is one of them. The kind that sees a Plan B and says, Trude! I want that!
According to Trudeau and his design partner, Swiss timepiece veteran Vikentiy Gryaznov, "every gentleman needs a Plan B when things get out of hand." And he needs it fast, because tempus fugit, dudes. In addition to its vintage trio of faces and bulk-free feel, the Plan B Edmonton converts from a casual daily and weekend watch with a dyed canvas / leather strap to a more formal piece with a mesh stainless steel band in seconds. Both the stainless band and a removal tool are included in the Plan B package.
The Edmonton's look is a descendant of mid-20th-century European watchmaking, with an expertly crafted, easily readable dial accented by several textural layers and volumetric face elements. The case is matte, its hands are brushed, and other Plan B elements are polished. A Swiss-made movement drives the watch.
