Makara Sea Serpent

Ah, memories of Makara... I announced their first watch, the Octopus, in my second Time Bum blog post. I reviewed their second, the Sea Turtle in 2015. Now, they have launched their third, the Sea Serpent, on Kickstarter and it has blown well past its funding goal. 


Like the Makaras before it, the Sea Serpent has an aggressive and angular 42mm case. While similar at a glance to the shape of the Sea Turtle, the Sea Serpent is all-new, sporting a neatly integrated 4 o'clock crown and a 12-sided bezel. It is offered in brushed stainless steel, PVD black, or CuSn8 bronze. Notwithstanding its aquatic branding, the watch is only rated to 100m water resistance, which is more than enough for any tool watch, but on the low side for a dedicated diver. Inside is a Miyota 82S0 automatic, visible through the exhibition case back. Up front, is a huge, double-domed sapphire crystal. 


Large framed markers distinguish the Sea Serpent's face, along with a bold, semi-skeletonized handset consisting of a massive arrowhead hour hand, orange-tipped minute hand, and a retro-style paddle second hand. The overall look is pretty badass, a trait they obviously are trying to drive home with the knuckle duster buckle. You don't see that every day. It may not be for everyone, but I like that they have done something a little crazy instead of the usual Pre-V clone. 

The Makara Sea Serpent can still be had for as little as $249 in steel or black, or $299 for bronze. Check them out now on Kickstarter or MakaraWatches.com.
