Swiss watchmaker BOMBERG is a watch brand that loves to make a difference and the BOLT-68 series is just that with a system that allows the watch body to be removed from the case and used as a pocket watch.
The BOMBERG Bolt-68 collection features quartz and automatic timepieces with a “bullhead” configuration, meaning the crown and pushers are at 12 o’clock, as opposed to 3 o’clock as with most watches. Originally launched at Baselworld 2014, the BOLT-68 collection has quickly established itself as the key collection for BOMBERG with its patented bayonet system. The designs are deliberately conceived to be unconventional, bold and audacious and a new range of the popular watches has been introduced for 2015.
These include the BOLT-68 NEON, and the BOLT-68 SKULL BADASS and the BOLT-68 Gambler in a choice of Vegas or Macau displaying two timepieces inspired from the high stakes world of casino.
Looking to Feudal Japan (see top of post) for its inspiration is the BOLT-68 SAMOURAI, while the BOLT-68 FALCON is Middle Eastern desert themed. All new BOLT-68s come with a medallion and a chain that has been sculpted as if they were a real piece of art.
Water resistant to 100 meters, the 45mm BOMBERG Bolt-68 Chronograph quartz models are powered by a Ronda caliber 3540D quartz movement. The glass on all Bolt-68 timepieces is made of reinforced K1 mineral crystal with sapphire coating, and with a single non-reflective coating. The case back is stainless steel with four screws and metal spring. The crown is screwed-down and features a protector in stainless steel with two fixed screws. Unusually, the date window is located at 12 o’ clock.
