Here we have an Unworn 2020 Naval Watch Company x Lowercase FRXB004 a collaboration between NWC and LOWERCASE Limited Edition of 100 pieces. Mr Yoshikage Kajiwara, creative director of LOWERCASE has an advisory role as a product development advisor to NWC using his creative know-how to develop these military-inspired collections of timepieces. A 38mm stainless steel case gently curves over your wrist with tapered drilled lugs, brushed and polished surfaces transition with crisp edges. On the right side, a signed push-pull crown. The 60-minute friction-fit bezel has silver numerals holding a domed acrylic crystal above a matte black dial, an outer 60-minute track has small white numerals with Arabic 12, 3, 6 and 9 and baton indexes coated in Beige phosphorescent paint for that vintage aesthetic to mark the hours, between the 4 and 5 a date window. At 12 o’clock we have the military Pheon - Broad Arrow as a nod to their military watches of the past, at 6 o’clock “NWC” and LOWERCASE in red complete this modern interpretation of a military watch made by Naval Watch Company Ltd. On the reverse a screw-down case back with “Naval Watch Co Made in Japan” limited number out of 100 engraved into it. Inside a Quartz movement. The watch comes fitted with its 20mm black NWC NATO strap with a signed buckle and the watch comes with its NWC presentation box and paperwork.
I had never heard of NWC before and we got 3 in at once! I am very impressed for the price point and I think they offer a fun and affordable homage watch to some of the most iconic designs, this is always a hot debate subject in the watch world but for me, I like the idea of affordable homages that borrow from design and provide the fun without the price tag... So if you like it, buy it and enjoy it!
Naval Watch Company Ltd can trace its history back to the 1800s, originally based in La Chaux de Fonds Switzerland. They produced some of the first luminous painted dials. Today the company name has been reregistered, resurrected and now operates out of Japan in designing and manufacturing. They reproduce military-inspired timepieces based on mil-spec specifications.
