The people at LIV Watches definitely realize somewhat about making watches and subsidizing them on Kickstarter. Their new “The Breakthrough” campaign isn’t their first offence. However, here it’s not one watch but rather a progression of 3 programmed watches (and one quartz that won’t be covered here… you know us at MONOCHROME) that will be advertised. Striking styles, 3 distinct motivations – pilot, hustling, plunging – every one of them fueled by Swiss mechanical development and offered, not surprisingly, at extraordinary costs. If it’s not too much trouble, meet the LIV Watches GX P-51 Chronograph, the GX Automatic Chrono and the GX Divers – all now accessible on Kickstarter .
The GX P-51 Auto-Chronograph Pilot
The first watch in this new “The Breakthrough” campaign, which absolutely is the lead model in this new assortment, is a strong, manly and powerful pilot’s chronograph. Propelled by the P51 Mustang WW2 Plane, it shows a 46mm case in impeccable or titanium – contingent upon the model – and bears the vast majority of the pilot’s watch credits: vigorous case, huge pushers to be incited with gloves, upgraded readability, pivoting bezel with 12-hour scale – note that the bezel’s embed is made of brushed ceramic.
Powering the GX P-51 Auto-Chronograph Pilot is a Swiss programmed development – Sellita SW-500, a Valjoux clone – with 48h force hold and day-date sign. The development is obvious through the caseback. The watch is accessible in a few tones – steel/blue dial, dark covered steel/dark dial, dark covered titanium/dark dial, titanium/dark dial and titanium/blue dial. Every one of them are matched with a bolted leather lash (with or without crocodile pattern). This GX P-51 Auto-Chronograph Pilot is accessible on Kickstarter from USD 990 (steel models) or USD 1,190 (titanium models). The titanium models are even delivered with a watch winder. Just 500 pieces (all shadings included) will be produced.

The GX Automatic Chrono
The second watch offered by LIV Watches for their new campaign should feel natural to a few. For sure, a quartz model with this precise plan was essential for LIV Watches’ first campaign. But at this point, the new GX Automatic Chrono highlights a Sellita SW-500 programmed – noticeable through the caseback. The plan stays as before, with utilitarian and dashing motivations. The curiously large pushers, the standing out bezel from a fine engraved example, the multi-layer dial or the general motivation behind this watch are obviously lively and bold.
