The MVMT New Automatic Watch Proves Dropouts Sometimes Do OK

Back in 2013, Jake Kassan and Kramer Laplante dropped out of school to found MVMT (pronounced “movement”). Through crowdfunding, they were able to launch a watch line based on a minimalistic approach and affordable prices. Since then, the company has grown quite a bit, creating a global community of over 1.5 million MVMT owners. They’ve expanded their product line—last year they added sunglasses—but they’ve always stayed true to their chronograph origins.

MVMT has now just launched a new automatic watch—the Arc Automatic. The watch was inspired by 1960s architecture, meaning that it has a detailed aesthetic. The mechanism is self-winding, which is powered by the wearer’s movements. The back of the watch features a window to see the movement. You can pick up the watch in Bourbon Rose, Jet Noir, Ivory Oak, and Iron Elm with each watch featuring a genuine leather band. The Arc Automatic retails for $300.
