Our friends at the New York-based watchmaking company Lorier have now released a brilliant copper Safari field watch for those with an affinity for exploration. Produced in collaboration with YouTube watch reviewer Urban Gentry, Lorier’s limited edition offering manages to stay consistent with the brand’s vintage aesthetic, honoring timeless design aesthetics while giving them a slightly modern twist.
The brushed copper dial is no doubt the highlight of the Safari, striking a brilliant contrast to the 316L stainless steel case surrounding it as well as the military green Perlon strap running through. As a nod to the Explorer, you’ll find the numerical indices 3, 6, and 9, in their respective positions while the rest of the timepiece is finished with bar indices and a triangular marker at 12 o’clock for better legibility both day and night.
Sitting inside the handy 36mm case is then a Miyota 9039 automatic movement that operations at 28,800 vibrations per hour. A screw-down crown gives it a water resistance of 330 feet while a Dome Hesalite crystal and Swiss Superluminova C3 coating keep things nice and clear in darker waters.
Priced at $500 USD, the copper variant of Lorier’s Safari will restock periodically, so those interested should stay tuned over on the watchmaker’s website for drop updates.
Elsewhere in the world of watches, Tudor has unveiled its Pelagos 39mm.
