Expedition I Karakum

19 reviews

This fiery Expedition is named after Turkmenistan’s famed Karakum desert, home to the Darvaza crater, or the “Gates of Hell”. The massive man-made sinkhole has been leaking methane gas for decades, showing no signs of burning out anytime soon. Karakum Desert is also known by Gara Gum (“Black Sand”), and it occupies around 70 percent of Turkmenistan, extending some 500 miles (800 km) from west to east and 300 miles (500 km) from north to south. Did you know that fruit is grown in some areas of the desert? The nature of its multiple interdune depressions (takyr) form thick clay deposits, which act as catchment basins for its scarce moisture - thus allowing fruits such as melons and grapes to grow in its mineral-rich soil. 

The Expedition I Karakum is built to outlast such challenging terrains, so strap yours on and gear up to get back on trek.

built like a tank

I love this watch. It's better quality than expected. Rugged and good looking!

Excellent watch. It looks and feels very nicely made. The canvas strap is really cool but because of the wide spacing between the holes, getting the right fit is a game of luck which I lost. Didn't feel right to remove any stars because of that. Other than that I'm extremely happy with this one

Best Field watch for this price

I've wanted to buy a field watch for a long time and was considering Hamilton for my first field watch when I discovered Boldr. The Expedition exceeds my expectation with its highly accurate movement, a tough built and very long lasting lume. I am extremely happy with this purchase and the help provided from staff members.

Beautiful watch. Rides nice on the arm. Love the smooth action of the second hand. Looking forward to many years with this bad boy on the wrist!

A month after receiving my Boldr watch

I am very pleased with my purchase. Although is not a flashy time peace, I’ve gotten some compliments. I love the understated color contrast, and overall design. As a designer, well put together objects, composition, texture and color compliment, all highly important for me. The watch performs well. I have had to adjust the time once since I began to wear it, and this is my daily watch. I was skeptical about the strap, but it has been comfortable to wear. Overall, awesome!
