Pancor P01-Heritage (Review)

Today we are taking look at crowdfunded watch, the Pancor P01-Heritage. The company got funded on crowd service called Kickstarter. They got backed for 42, 038€. The Pancor company got quite an exposure. They had stylish, yet appealing watches to horology people and the watches were cheap and of course, the quality is really good! As the owner Marc says:

As you can probably relate, high quality watches are extremely expensive and affordable watches lack the comfort, style and functionality, leaving consumers with a lack of options if you want a high quality watch at the right price. That is why I have created “Pancor” and now anyone can get a watch to match their style with a price tag they can handle.

The companies founder is Marc Schutten. The company is based in Enschede, The Netherlands. The model that they launched on Kickstarter is PO1. It has three variations: Classic, Heritage and Nighthawk. They all are the same watch, but with different straps and colour combinations. Today we are gonna take a look at the Heritage version. They also have some future plans of making automatic movement watch called PO2, but right now it’s only a prototype. 

The inspiration for the Pancor P01 comes from the instrument panel of aeroplane. But especially from the new generation cockpits of fighter jets. As you can see from the pictures below.

Overall I’ve blown away with the quality of the watch that costs only 159 euro. It is almost going into Seiko territory, by that I mean a high-quality watch with good movement and package for such a cheap price. The watch maybe isn’t for small wrists as it is pretty big, but for bigger guys, it will be fine as the watch is masculine. I definitely recommend this one!

Price: 159.00 @ pancorwatch.com
