Named after 1980s tactical hardware, the FINAL COUNTDOWN collection introduces an aggressive aesthetic that modernises every essential aspect of 10 legendary designs. Each variant is limited to only 50 serial numbers and is available to pre-order for £350 (saving £150 off RRP).
The new collection utilizes a mechanical caliber with a quick date setting and exhibition back. Meanwhile, the stainless steel watch case measures 44mm diameter × 49mm length × 13.4mm depth and boasts 10 ATM (100m / 328ft) water resistance.
The collection utilises a beautiful combination of meticulously polished & carefully brushed surfaces, elevated further by a matt black unidirectional rotating bezel. The robust crown features a bold, deep red anodised finish, consistent with all of their earlier editions.
The screw-down exhibition back gives the wearer uninterrupted access to view the inner workings of the intricate mechanical movement. Finally, the bespoke design is finished with a black matt fluoroelastomer (FKM) strap.
If you are new to WT Author or if you have some gaps in your collection then you can get your hands on one of their earlier editions via Add-on Rewards, thereby saving a further £150 off RRP, hot off the assembly bench & shipped by July 2022.
