This watch is classed as “Nearly New”, which means that it is either a customer return or a former photo sample. As such it could have very minor signs of wear and may not be supplied with the original box. However, it has still been checked to ensure that it is running perfectly, and it has a 6 month warranty.
The Five In A Row II is a special edition Venture which Boldr have released in collaboration with Scottish rowing crew Five In A Row. The crew are competing in the 2021 Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge (TWAC), which began on 12th December 2021. They will travel 3000 miles from La Gomera in 2-hour shifts, 24 hours a day without stopping until they reach their destination at Antigua. This will take over 40 days for them to complete.
Five In A Row are competing to support the charity Reverse Rett, which helps victims of Rett Syndrome which currently afflicts the daughter of a crew member. So far, they’ve managed to raise nearly £25,000, and you can help them raise even more as 15% of the proceeds from the sale of this watch will be donated to Reverse Rett.
The watch has the usual features you expect from Boldr’s Venture series. The 38mm case is made from lightweight titanium with a lug-to-lug of 44mm and a thickness of just 12.8mm to make the watch very comfortable to wear on the wrist.
The crystal is a flat sapphire with an anti-reflective coating, whilst the hands and markers are painted with Japanese C3 Superlume to ensure the watch is readable in the dark. Just like the other watches in the Venture range the Five In A Row II is water resistant to an impressive 200m – more than enough should you decide to do a spot of rowing yourself!
Boldr have chosen to use a Seiko NH35 automatic movement in the Venture. This reliable Japanese calibre has 24 jewels, beats at 21,600 bph and has a 41-hour power reserve.
There are two new features that set the Five In A Row watch apart from previous Venture models. The first is that the crown is now at 10 o’clock to prevent it from digging into the back of the wearer’s hand. The second is the bi-directional bezel with a two-tone tide indicator and 12-hour markers on the aluminium insert.
