    Introducing the MAEN Skymaster 38 Automatic Chronograph (ETA 2894-2)

    Hi everyone!

    As you might have seen on the Watchuseek homepage, we will soon release a new model.

    After a long process of designing and prototyping, we are proud to announce the latest addition to the MAEN collection, the Skymaster 38 Automatic Chronograph!


    We love vintage chronographs and in the current market it was hard to find a well balanced design in a modest case of 38mm. Besides that, most Swiss Made automatic chronographs are well above
    1000,- when you buy them new. So with this is mind we started the automatic chronograph project.

    We are still a young company and our goal is to keep improving and create high-quality watches for an affordable price and with a lot of attention to small details.
    We have learned a lot from the previous Kickstarter campaign and will therefore also offer VAT returns for buyers outside of the EU.

    We will launch the Skymaster on Kickstarter on the 1st of September. More information can be found at: https://www.maenwatches.com/pages/skymaster

    Nice looking watches. I prefer prefer pics 1 & 3 personally and particularly drawn to 1.

    At 39mm it’s probably a tad small for me having a bezel.

    Good luck with the campaign

    All five of your Skymaster Automatic Chronograph's are looking watches. And, I do like the sandblasted finish on their dials.

    My one question is with your Panda model, how much of a contrast is it with the hands and the dial when it comes to viewing the time at a glance?

    GMT bezel on a 38mm chrono is a very wise choice.

    Great job. Really checks all the boxes for me. I’ve been eyeing the Hudson for a while now. This release definitely cements me as a fan now.

    Finally!! A decent auto chrono under 1000... I'm definitely interested in one of those pandas. Thanks for the heads up - I will start saving for September!!
    Could you post a side on pic so we can see the size of the boxed crystal?
