Introducing the Varsity Sport. This racing inspired watch is made from high grade stainless steel, has a sapphire crystal, leather rally strap with accented stitching and is powered by a Seiko Epson YN77A Automatic movement. With its beautifully curved bezel, vintage looks and premium grade components, the Varsity Sport is a watch meant to be worn everyday. Just like the high-powered sports cars they're inspired by, the Varsity Sport seeks to match optimal performance, with an irresistible aesthetic and quality workmanship.
The Varsity Sport features a durable case that was forged with stainless steel. The casing has been given a brushed finish with polished edges on the lugs, creating a beautiful contrasting design. With the perfectly rounded bezel, the case was inspired by the instrument clusters found on sports cars. The Varsity Sport has a 41mm diameter and measures 48mm from lug to lug. With a total height of only 11MM, it feels and looks good on the wrist.
The dials on the Varsity Sport have a vintage feel and are racing inspired. The matte dials feature bold, luminous hour markings. 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.
The Varsity Sport comes equipped with a racing style rally strap made from top-grain leather. Each watch is paired with a strap that’s color matched with accent colored stitching. These straps feature the convenience of Quick Release watch pins. This will allow for the removal or installation with the simplicity of pressing down a small tab located on the back of the strap - no tools required. The sporty straps are 21mm wide and taper down to 18mm at the buckle. They're also soft, comfortable and easy to put on. The matching brushed buckle has also been engraved with the ‘Kingsbury’ logo.
As an added bonus, each Varsity Sport will also come with a custom made NATO style watch strap. These 21MM wide straps are made out of ballistic nylon, have stainless steel hardware and can be removed with little effort - no tools required. The straps will be color matched to each watch, giving them a customized look.
The caseback on the Varsity Sport 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 Sport features a multi-colored lume setup on the hands and hour markings. The hour and minute hands, use Japanese Luminova which appears white under normal and glows a bright blue during low light conditions. The luminescent hands make it easy to tell time even in the dark.
The hour markings on the Varsity Sport are also coated in luminous material. For these, we've also used a different color of Japanese Luminova, which glows a green during low light conditions. This dual color setup is not only functional, but gives the watch a unique glowing design.
