Studio Underd0g mixes fun and style into an affordable package. Their latest: the Studio Underd0g Strawberries & Cream.
Studio Underd0g Strawberries & Cream – First Impressions
Watch and tennis journalist Miguel Seabra was an early advocate for Studio Underd0g and
continues to be an engaged member of the Underd0g community. What started as a joke in
the comments section of an Instagram post soon led to the first prototype of a new colourway
inspired by Miguel’s vision of a perfect day, spent soaking up the British summertime sunshine
while watching a thrilling game of tennis and enjoying a healthy portion of strawberries and
Studio Underd0g Watches
Studio Underdog builds their watches around the Seagull ST-1901 movement. It’s the very same hand-wound chronograph you find in the perennial favourite the Seagull 1963. To ensure all watches are running well within the expected tolerances, each watch is inspected
in the UK prior to shipping. The process includes demagnetisation, accuracy / rate review (3
positions) and regulation wherever necessary. A report card is included with every watch.
The watches are, of course, made in the Far East, but each watch is assembled here in the UK and the brand has partnered with two more British businesses on this special edition:
The Strap Tailor: The brand has collaborated with David Richards, AKA; The Strap Tailor to offer a handmade Epsom Calfskin strap. This luxurious strap is made with a unique multi-step tanning process that takes almost a month to complete. The lining is Haas Zermatt which is comfortable on the wrist and resistant to sweat and moisture.
Horologium: Studio Underd0g has also partnered with Horologium who will carry out a full independent QC inspection on all watches before they’re shipped out from the UK. The process includes demagnetisation, accuracy/rate review (3 positions) and regulation wherever necessary. A report card is included with every watch
Studio Underd0g makes very cool-looking watches. Our personal favourite is their watermelon, but this colourway is equally as striking. Watch enthusiasts we know rave about their watches, and as Studio Underd0g tells us that they don’t have any press samples of their watches, you’ll have to take it on trust that their watches are worth the asking price.
