Something old, something new: Padron Tessera and an interview with Leo Padron
Watch restorer and designer Leo Padron of Minneapolis Minnesota has a Kickstarter campaign on the go to help launch his new watch, the Padron Tessera. The Padron Tessera is described as the classic mid-century mechanical watch rebooted for modernity, and powered by your motion. It’s a highly crafted, all stainless steel 25 jewel automatic watch proudly designed and hand-assembled in the USA.
As a self-winding mechanical watch, the Tessera uses no electronics and requires no battery. Its case is a 150 Meter water-resistant design with anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal and surgical-grade stainless steel. 150 Meters water resistance means that it can withstand water depths of up to 500 feet, making it appropriate for snorkeling or swimming.
I like the looks of their new watch. I'm gonna pre-order one for delivery Jan 2014.

That's an awesome looking watch. The Dial could be finished with an understated logo (a "T" of some sort?), but maybe that's just my lukewarm feelings about sterile dials.
