I am not one of those who are overly apprehensive of purchasing things online. In fact, I have done so for a long time via Amazon and Barnes & Noble, and more recently the likes of Ebay, Lazada and even Facebook.
I got this one via Kickstarter. I learned about the watch from an ad that appeared on Facebook and I got curious about it. To cut a long story short, I decided to "invest" in this project but also had to be careful so I only chose the option that will lead to a single watch reward. I did choose the middle option by going for the automatic.
|The watch was delivered in a box and opening it shows the company tagline.|
|There's a pouch|
|And inside is a rather big box - not as large as my Moonwatch's though|
|My first look at the watch that was made with my support|
|The simple design makes this one functional but still aesthetically sound.|

|The watch is quite thick and weighs on the heavy side even compared with my larger watches.|

|Here is the see-through case back featuring a Sellita SW200-1 movement that has a 38-hour power reserve at 28,800 bph. The movement is the same as the one powering my Hampton.|
|Here it is on my wrist the first time I tried it on.|
The Clairvoyant likes the watch but finds it quite heavy. I thought it was a pretty big and hefty watch, too, but it suits me and I wear it more often than I thought I would be given my many other options to wear any given day. Liv is a newby in the world of watchmaking and it is a Miami-based company that complied with the requirements for their watches to be "Swiss Made". So far, I think their watches are really good in terms of functionality and aesthetics, and only time will tell if these will be collectible.-
