Now unveiling the Varsity GT - the new Limited Edition variation to the Varsity model line. The original Varsity Sport was launched in the summer of 2020 and was an instant hit, with most colorways selling out during pre-production. Powered by the same YN77 small second hand movement, the all new GT line will make a fun new addition to any collection.
The limited, Varsity GT, is almost identical to the Varsity Sport but feature some key differences:
- Completely Redesigned Dial w/Racing Stripes
- New Baton Style Watch Hands
- All Blue Lume Setup
- 3 Separate and New Strap Options
Limited Edition: Only 15 units of each of the three Varsity GT variations have been assembled.
The Varsity GT features a durable case that was forged in stainless steel. The casing has been given a brushed finish with polished edges on the lugs, creating a beautiful accented design. With the perfectly rounded bezel, the case was inspired by the instrument clusters found on sports cars. The Varsity GT has a 41mm diameter and measures 48mm from lug to lug. With a total height of only 11MM, it wears comfortably on the wrist.
The dials on the Varsity GT have a vintage feel and are racing inspired. The matte dials feature bold, luminous hour indices and multi-colored racing stripes. The watch hands, which are also luminous, are baton style with pointed ends. Printed on the outside track, you will find printed minute markings. At the 6 o'clock position you will see a small, concave sub-dial that keeps track of the seconds. This multi-colored design was inspired by the instrument gauges found on automobiles. Each small second hand is colored to stand out to focus attention on its beautiful sweeping movement.
This Varsity GT (REF.1010016) comes equipped with a racing style rally strap made from premium grade calf-skin leather. These brown leather straps feature perforated ventilation holes, that give off that classic racing look. These sporty bands are 21mm wide and taper down to 18mm at the buckle. They're also soft, comfortable and easy to remove/install with the addition of quick release watch pins. The matching brushed buckle has also been engraved with the ‘Kingsbury’ logo.
The caseback on the Varsity GT is constructed from 316L stainless steel and has a screw-down design allowing for the tightest fit and best protection against water. Each case has been given a brushed finish that matches the watch case. Featured prominently in the center of the caseback, is an engraving of the Kingsbury royal coat of arms.
The Varsity GT would not be complete without a way to read your instrument panel in the dark. The hour and minute hands, as well as all hour markings, have been coated with BGW9 Japanese Luminova. This material appears white under normal use and glows a greenish blue color during low light conditions. This feature not only gives users a functional benefit, but also gives the watch a unique glowing design.
