Hi everyone!

As you might have seen on the Watchuseek homepage, we will soon release a new model.

After a long process of designing and prototyping, we are proud to announce the latest addition to the MAEN collection, the Skymaster 38 Automatic Chronograph!


We love vintage chronographs and in the current market it was hard to find a well balanced design in a modest case of 38mm. Besides that, most Swiss Made automatic chronographs are well above
1000,- when you buy them new. So with this is mind we started the automatic chronograph project.

We are still a young company and our goal is to keep improving and create high-quality watches for an affordable price and with a lot of attention to small details.
We have learned a lot from the previous Kickstarter campaign and will therefore also offer VAT returns for buyers outside of the EU.

We will launch the Skymaster on Kickstarter on the 1st of September. More information can be found at: https://www.maenwatches.com/pages/skymaster

SHOCK PROTECTION: Incabloc
VIBRATIONS PER HOUR: 28.800 vibrations per hour; 4 Hz

Oh wow, that is nice!

Looking forward to seeing the kickstarter!

Having experience drilled lugs for the first time recently, I'm so glad you guys went with drilled lugs. What a game changer. Also, glad you got the dial/subdial proportions right, looks absolutely fantastic.

Any potential options for a bracelet?

Been waiting for you to unveil this project!

I’m glad you’re offering a variant that’s out-of-the-box and has punchy colors.

I’m leaning towards the Thunder Grey at the moment.


Wrist: 6.5” flat

Really love that reverse panda tri-compax. Any chance that you would use tachymetre bezel?

Very nice dial design. This would have looked much better without the bezel though, feel like it cheapens the look. Just looks like your typical Chinese chronograph that every fashion watch company makes. No bezel and more modern pushers (rectangular?) and this would have been perfect.

Actually not as much a fashion watch, more just too much of a Speedmaster ripoff.
