The Wayfarer is our tribute to classic 24-hour subdial watches housed in a sturdy titanium Venture case. Back when mobile phones were non-existent, 24-hour subdial watches were worn mostly by miners, explorers, submariners, and the like - jobs that could not rely on sunlight to know the actual time of day.
In today's world, there are those among us who blur the lines between work and play, and consequentially, night and day. If your body doesn't speak the language of circadian rhythms, you and the Wayfarer will understand each other just fine.

Overall an excellent watch.
Overall this watch is absolutely fantastic. Great legible dial. Awesome build quality. Cool materials. Only cons are a slightly loud rotor, and pretty weaksauce lume, but overall I'm thrilled by what is essentially a dive field watch. What's not to like?
I am so pleased...
Every aspect from online purchase to wrapping the time piece around my wrist was easy. The dial is mesmerizing. The titanium a feather.
Hope I don't scratch it up too soon!
My obsessive nature loves the 24-hour dial, and the textured dial and the orange on the second hand are great touches. Design choices are spot on; this is just a real cool watch. The 38mm width looks fine on my 18 cm wrist, and the trend seems towards smaller watches right now so it's perfect. I like the strap fine, but may try something else if I find a good alternative. I considered the Expedition Canvas Strap, but I avoid leather so that's out for me. Imperfections: the lume is okay, but nothing to write home about. Operating the movement is a bit rough after spending a few years with the 4R36 in my Seiko Turtle, which feels smoother. My watch runs fast by about 12s/day. All flaws forgiven for being the coolest watch in the room.
A second Venture.
I was very pleased with my first Boldr, a charcoal dial 'Venture'. I know that many people feel that a field watch shouldn't have a cluttered dial, but for someone who uses their field and military watches as everyday wear watches the addition of a date function with the 'Wayfarer' is a real bonus. Even with hefty import duties to UK (33%) Boldr watches are value for money. One complaint. The ship is spoilt for a ha'porth of tar in the form of a cheap Nato strap
I’ve had this watch about two weeks now and I can say that it keeps great time (Compared to some of the mainstream automatic watches I’ve had). The white dial is very nice and I feel I can wear it in most situations (daily). I have small wrists and the watch fits me well, I’m pleased with my purchase.
