I recently caught wind of another new brand out of New Jersey, The Stanton Watch Company. Â From what I’ve been able to gather, they’ve only been around for a few years, but they already have five models in their collection. Â Four of those are aimed at men, and the fifth is what I’d like to focus on today – their one and only women’s model, the Mulberry.
So, why focus on this model? Â Well, to be sure, there are no shortage of men’s watches being created today, especially by the newer brands. Â To find a ladies model that is tastefully designed (no hearts or faceted crystals here) with a nice automatic movement – that’s a rarer breed, to be sure.
The Mulberry features a 32mm stainless steel case (gold-plated bezel), mounted on a 16mm alligator (genuine, apparently – not embossed leather) strap with deployant clasp. Â These dimensions probably seem much smaller than they really are, given their aimed for a female wrist (translation: Â sizing seems spot-on for a woman).
Lest you think this watch is an afterthought in the portfolio, there are some very nice attributes in play here. Â You’ve got a sapphire crystal protecting the silver and white dial, which has a nice bit of embossed texture in the center; around the edges you’ve got raised numerals.
Driving it all, you have a Swiss automatic movement with date complication. Â No word as to who the maker of the movement is (or the particular model), so it’s not entirely clear how that impacts the price.
And speaking of price – this particular watch comes in at $1175, so it’s definitely positioned as a serious watch. Â If you’re looking to get a sharp, small-batch watch (either for yourself or someone else), this is one of the nicer automatics I’ve seen for women in some time.
