The Scuro Volante – coming to Kickstarter in mid-October – is a racing-inspired watch with some special skeletonised features.
Coming to Kickstarter – Scuro Volante
Scuro is a watch brand that is new to us but they are now about to launch their third project on Kickstarter. We thought the Scuro Volante looked really cool with its sleek lines and semi-skeletonised titanium case. We’ve never seen a watch case that has a window on the side before so could not resist taking a closer look! It’s a 42mm watch just 13.5mm thick, and powered by the reliable (if uninspiring) Miyota 8N40 automatic movement. The USP of this watch is its exchangeable skeletonised case sides, and we really like the way the strap blends seamlessly into the case.

Buy a Scuro Volante
The Scuro Volante is coming to Kickstarter mid-October, with a half-price early bird deal for the first 250 backers who will pay just AUD $348 (that’s about £200) for their watches. That sounds like a bargain to us for such a unique design – we can’t spot any cheap interchangeable catalogue parts on this watch.
Till then, you can sign up at the Scuro website and be the first to know when it launches. Scuro also have a questionnaire on their website where you can choose your favourite dial design – we like the full carbon-fibre but there is also a skeleton design that looks like it exposes the balance wheel.
