|Moto Koure Mk 1 Quartz Watch|
Moto Koure: it’s an exotic sounding name for a watch brand. For many years, we could only marvel at exotic, exclusive, and elusive watches from afar. Truly unique watches with iconic looks and timeless style were reserved for the very rich. Now, the micro brand watch revolution is changing all that. Moto Koure stands out as an up and coming brand from Australia that is bringing quartz and automatic watches to the market with a unique and exciting style.

There are 8 models in the Mk 1 collection, four are quartz and four are automatics. Moto Koure is now taking 50% deposits for these new watches. As with most startup brands, early birds got the best deals. But, pre-production pricing is still available. Right now, it looks like the quartz models will cost just under $350. The Mecha-Quartz models are based on the venerable Seiko VK quartz movement. The automatic watches will cost just under $880. Watch production is expected in June 2016.
I like these Moto Koure watches a lot. They have a design that is both classic and unique. As watch collectors, that is just what we want from a micro brand. Moto Koure is also keeping collectors well-informed of their progress. It’s exciting to see this brand’s designs come to fruition. You should definitely check out the website at www.motokoure.com. It’s worth a visit just for the pictures.
