Vestal Mtrhead

A relatively plain looking watch today, but probably one of the heaviest watches I own - it says it's solid stainless steel, and I'd say it's definitely solid!

The watch is by the Vestal company and called the Mtrhead (I guess pronounced 'motor head'). The Vestal brand was started in 1997, and has close links with music culture, producing watches, eye wear, and soft goods.

It has a Japanese movement running it's 3 hand dial, and there is a date window at the 7:30 position. The numbers are printed with a 45 degree rotation anticlockwise - this is strange, as most of the time when you look at your watch it's at 45 degrees, but the other way, meaning the numbers look to be on their side (except when you fold your arms).
The back of the watch has the watches name, along with an etched picture of a motorbike. Along the bottom, it has the statement: 'Unvaryingly regular in rhythm '.

The strap follows the sturdy theme and is solid steel shaped onto the body. The watch is also 5bar/50m water resistant.

It is relatively new, and the original sale guarantee showed it was bought in 2011. The silver version has a model number of MTR001 and seems to have been around $120.
