Ember Watch Company Rocket, Early Bird £296, RRP £395

Ember Watch Company Rocket

The debut watch from Ember Watch Company, aptly named Rocket, is a stylish ode to science fiction.

Combine that with vibrant pink or other colourful dials, and this watch wouldn’t look out of place in Starfleet Command. This fusion of retro and modern concepts is powered by the Seiko NH38A with a 41-hour power reserve. The Rocket is available for pre-order on Kickstarter at an early-bird price of £296, with retail set at £395.

Available at Ember Watch Company.
