$1,550.00

A rugged 40mm, Swiss-powered automatic watch with 20ATM water resistance and an external, rotating 12-hour bezel that’s built to discover. Comes on our hand-made, Horween leather strap that tapers from 20mm to 18mm at the buckle.

The Humboldt is a rugged, 40mm, Swiss-powered automatic watch with a 42-hour power reserve, 20 ATM (200 meters) of water resistance, and an external, rotating 12-hour bezel.

The engine powering the Humboldt is the legendary, Swiss-made, ETA 2892A2, a workhorse calibre with 21 jewels, a substantial 42-hour power reserve, and the iconic Oak & Oscar 4-star rotor design. Founded in 1856, ETA has over 150 years of experience crafting some of the most accurate and reliable movements in the world. 

We’re proud of our Horween leather straps and the craftsmanship that goes into them. From the hand-beveled edges with applied water-based dye to the hidden orange stitching on the floating keeper, our leather strap tapers from 20mm to 18mm at the buckle for a comfortable fit.

You asked...

I really hate being the one to break The Humboldt's string of perfect reviews, but I'm just not feeling it. It's a nice-looking watch, but the photos, both amateur and professional, created an expectation that the watch did not live up to for me upon first impression or on my wrist after a few days. My first impression was not the "wow!" that I was expecting, but rather a subdued disappointment. I struggled to choose between two and three stars as I really wished there was a 2.5 option, and now I'm having the same struggle with "would you recommend this product?" While it's a nice enough watch, I can't think of any reason that I would.

Hi Howard!

Sorry to hear you're not in love with your Humboldt. I definitely appreciate your feedback and hope that you'll start bonding with it more soon! Heck, I didn't like beer the first time I tried it 😂

In all seriousness though, I appreciate your support of my dream and sincerely hope that the charm and utility of the Humboldt will eventually win you over. Please feel free to shoot me an email or schedule a video chat and we can talk more. I'm always open to thoughts and suggestions!

Great watch!

I have thoroughly enjoyed this amazing watch. I am new to the world of mechanical/automatic watches and this is my everyday and everywhere watch.

I needed a new strap changing tool and Chase sent one to me right away.

I wish I would have discovered them sooner as their previous limited edition watches are very appealing as well.

I am extremely pleased with my purchase.

Grey Humboldt

I am absolutely in love with this piece, so happy I bought it. The attention to detail is way beyond what I expected. Chase took care of me from start to finish, I cannot thank him enough for the way he handled my purchase. The watch is perfect, the size, the finish on the bezel and the grey is just beautiful. I love it, thanks again Chase, we will be talking again in the future. So glad to add this to my collection!

Amazing watch and service

This is everything I was looking for in my next watch. The build quality from the bezel to the dial to the bracelet is fantastic. Like many posts before, this watch really got the details right. Even my wife who is quite neutral about watches likes the Humboldt. I also really appreciated the personal touches that were added. I ordered the watch after the shipping window and Chase was so nice to get it sent out expedited and I had it to enjoy before the weekend! I'm excited to see what they come up with next as I am a big fan now!
