There are somethings we believe you can never have enough of including two things near and dear to our hearts, boots and watches. Each watch has so much character and vary from brand to brand, design to design and even occasion to occasion. When we found out MSTR was going to release their Vintage Collection, we knew we had to get our hands on them. Read our thoughts on their newest Ambassador Watch below.

Right off the bat, we fell in love with the look of the Vintage Ambassador. The subtle vintage coating has such a unique and authentic look that is unlike anything we own. Every watch is individually coated, which means no two are the same. The addition of a Chromexcel Leather band by Horween completes the look. The leather band feels great on your wrist and is not something you see everyday on this type of watch. As for the dial itself, the roman numerals are something found throughout MSTR’s watches and offer a different style perfect for this watch.
In addition to high quality leather band, the rest of the watch follows suit. The Ambassador uses a Japanese 6-hand chronograph movement by Seiko, which includes functions like a stop watch timer, 24-hour clock and date window. Housing everything together is a NASA grade 316L stainless steel case, which gives us a lot of confidence when wearing it. We don’t have to be overly careful knowing this case is designed to last and be durable. It also allows you to dive up to 100 meters under water. We’re also a big fan of the vintage stainless steel bezel, which not only looks good but should really go the distance.
If you’re looking for a well-made watch that will last, MSTR’s Vintage Ambassador is for you. We’re totally in love with the Horween leather band and is a perfect fit for the vintage style look. You can really get a feel for the rest of the watch’s quality just by holding it for a short-period of time. At only $325, we wouldn’t think twice about buying one.
