Kyle, the founder of micro-band Straton Watch Co.. Yesterday was the launch of his latest Kickstarter campaign for the Straton Syncro – a motor-sport inspired pilot/diver hybrid watch.The campaign was funded within just a few hours – as of this writing the campaign has over $120,000 pledged, far more than the modest goal of $15,000. And it’s only day two of the 30 day campaign.
Until about 50 years ago, diving was considered as an activity that is exclusively for men. Today, more than a third of all trainees are women. For women (and men of course), a nice dive watch can help ensure your safety when diving. And what’s more, a dive watch can be a great fashion accessory as well. It signifies toughness and confidence, which can really belie the “weaker sex” image. For ordinary swimming and jogging activities, it’s a perfect companion.
