Founded as a microbrand watchmaker that focuses on producing small scale limited edition timepieces, Laventure have grown from their humble beginnings in 2017 as just another project on Kickstarter into a popular independent watchmaker who now has a handful of releases under its belt that are all becoming more and more popular than the last. Offered here we have Laventure’s first GMT, the Transatlantique. Launched in 2020 as a limited edition release of 100 pieces split between two options and inspired by 1950s transatlantic travel and long haul trips, as its name suggests, like the NYC to Paris route, the Transatlantique features a stainless steel 40.5mm construction filled with soft lines and gentle curves. Furthermore, it features a beautifully executed sandwich matte dial that was offered in two color schemes as mentioned, either a dark green or a light cream, which is what we have here. Featuring a sandwich construction with a baseplate providing the Super-LumiNova-powered fauxtina for its round indices, the Transatlantique’s dial’s color scheme is linked with the luminous fauxtina font in its two-tone green-on-green bezel. Offered on a stainless steel integrated bracelet and featuring a Plexiglas superdome crystal, the Transatlantique combines the best of modern watchmaking with vintage aesthetics to create something unique and novel that collectors seemingly can’t get enough of.

Offering good looks with intelligent design and a romantic source of inspiration, the Transatlantique GMT is appealing in all the right ways, and so its no wonder that Laventure sold out all 100 pieces as fast as they did.
