Kobold revives a favorite, with the Sir Ernest Shackleton Old Explorer’s model. If you remember the original, it featured that beautiful flesh tone dial. Now you can enjoy the smokin’ Artic blue. Michael Kobold, known for his more industrial hard German look, did a great job with this subtle dress/casual throw back timepiece.
A hand-wound, Swiss-made movement, caliber K.348 (modified Unitas 6497) powers the Sir Ernest and is a technological marvel. The movement has been re-engineered to display a large center second hand and features traditional decorations, such as Geneva stripes on the bridges and an engine-turned surface. The Unitas 6497 has been a great movement for many companies, but the dressing on the Kobold is the best I have witnessed with this movement.
