The Kraken by BOLDR x Nitecore

5 reviews

Your adventures are about to get real lit with The Kraken - our collaboration with Nitecore Singapore features a special edition Venture field watch paired with a powerful Nitecore TIKI torch! This is a first for both Nitecore and ourselves, so we're super excited to brighten your adventure path.

The Kraken Venture is powerfully lumed on its own, equipped with the brilliant Old-Radium C3 Glow. Spend a day in the Sun and the watch face will glow powerfully at night after being recharged. Need a manual boost? No problem - just a quick flash of the Nitecore TIKI's UV feature (1000mW) is strong enough to fully charge the lume and get it ready for action.

Housed in a 38mm PVD titanium case, the watch has a high contrast dial with Old-Radium C3 Glow lume, a tough sapphire crystal, NH35 automatic movement, and a custom NATO strap. Light up your path with this watch + torch powerhouse.

This collaboration is probably the best I have seen in independent brands. Keep up the good work.

Overall great watch, so so rotating bezel

The overall look and feel of this watch is amazing. Although the rotating bezel action is lacking. It feels a bit cheap and hollow. The clicks aren't as satisfying for similar watches in the price category if not cheaper. All in all, this is a well rounded time piece that's rugged and durable, has a great movement, updated look from the original Venture, and terrific collaboration with another outdoor enthusiast brand.

Superb Watch

This is my first titanium watch so the light weight my took some getting used to but now it doesn’t leave my wrist. I love this piece. The lume is amazing making it very practical 24 hours a day. I’m a big nitecore fan so this makes the watch even more special for me. I did receive a large tax bill importing it to the U.K. and I should have read the small print better as this was unexpected but the watch is still tremendous value. I was so impressed I’ve just ordered a Black Dawn from BOLDR to go with it! Overall, very happy and would highly recommend BOLDR. I’ll be keeping a close eye on their website for future releases.
