Venture Wayfarer-Navy

8 reviews

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.

    This watch fits my 5.5-inch-circumference wrist, which is really quite small. The watch is very readable. The movement is also very easy to adjust, provided of course that you have the tools and the timegrapher to read the beats of the movement. My only problem with this watch, as well as that of any other brands as well is the length of the strap and bracelet. None of the straps fit my small wrist so I have to buy specially shorter straps so that I can use this watch. I also bought an extra titanium bracelet for this watch but I was not able to use it since the number of UNREMOVABLE LINKS (specially in the 6 o'clock position) is too many, to which the clasp position is too way back turning all away to the back of the wrist. It should be best if metal bracelets should be designed in such a way that in the 6 o'clock position, the minimum number of UNREMOVABLE LINKS should only be 3-links (similar to new rolexes). This should resolve this issue. Nevertheless, Boldr watches is good and I am still planning to get and buy more. Boldr response, and support is top tier. Buy with confidence. - Wilbert

    Excellent Timepiece

    I have had my watch for two weeks now and love it. I have a small wrist so the 38mm case is just the right size, and the dial is uncluttered and legible, particularly at night. The NATO strap was too bulky for my wrist so I swapped it out for the silicone one.

    Have worn this watch for 2 weeks now - looks and feels like something that would cost 10 times it's actual price.

    Not a Seiko, and That’s a Good Thing

    Firstly, the website is streamlined and simple to use, prices are fair, and details on movement; materials etc. are appreciated. Shipping from Hong Kong was fast via DHL Express. I received my watch 5 days after ordering it in fine condition. The hard case this watch comes in helped to ensure that. The watch itself is almost perfect. Titanium has a nice matte finish to it which will aid in hiding very light scratches and also helps to keep the cost low as titanium is a much harder material to finish than steel. The “feel” of the watch is very light but solid. It wears very high on the wrist for its smaller than average size due to the general construction and nato strap, but I kind of like this. Some people would think the strap is too stiff but I rather prefer it to flimsy feeling slim straps. It’s solid, I appreciate that. My main gripe is that the texture on the dial seems a little cheap and poorly defined. I’m have absolutely no “need” for the 24 hour subdial but I really like it and the way it looks and it in no way hinders the function of the watch. The movement is typically defined as a workhorse with accuracy between -20/+40 SPD although mine seems to have been very well regulated (or I’m lucky) and over the past 48 hours has averaged -0.5 SPD (see pics). You’ll be buying a good looking, well built titanium automatic with (supposedly) 200m of water resistance at half the cost of other comparable watches. That’s the bottom line. People who like to grip me about “BuT itS mADe in ChyNa!” will continue to do so and they can be ******. This is a solid product I would happily and confidently recommend to a friend.
