Preview: Pancor P02

Pancor made a splash last year with their slick P01 chronograph. Now, they are live on Kickstarter campaign with a new watch, the Pancor P02 automatic.

Pancor P02 Green

Like the first watch, the P02 is a unique and thoroughly modern design. Its 42mm wide, 50mm long, and only 11.8mm thick. The stainless steel case has squared corners, angular lugs, a smooth fixed bezel, and is available in a polished or PVD black finish. Both front and rear crystals are sapphire glass. Water resistance is 100m.

Inside, is a 26 jewel, 28.8k bph Miyota 9132 automatic. From the same family as the more familiar 9015, it hacks, hand winds, and has a 40+ hour power reserve, but adds a power reserve meter and 24-hour subdial.

I'm particularly taken with Pancor's clean, understated dial. A "nailhead" chapter index offers an intriguing contrast to the sandwich dial's slotted hour markers. The semicircular power meter uses a long indicator needle anchored by a thick, color block index. A recessed 24-hour dial with an understated index balances it nicely. The markers and pencil-shaped hands are treated with SuperLuminova.

Pancor P02 Green and Black

The P02 comes in two color combinations: black with white printing, bright blue accents, and BGW9 lume on a black canvas strap; and green with white printing, pale yellow accents, and C3 lume on a gray tweed strap. Both are attractive, but that minty green is hard to resist.

Early bird rewards are still available for €269 ($317 USD). Reflecting my own views on the uselessness of watch boxes, the watch comes with a soft travel pouch instead. For more information or to order a P02 for yourself, visit the Pancor P02 Kickstarter page. ⬩
