Linjer Classic Watch Review

I first started to know Linjer from their first Kickstarter campaign, where I pledged for a zip wallet. Linjer is an independent studio that makes minimalist leather bags.  I waited no further to pledge for the second time when they launched their watches collection last year. I chose the 34mm Gunmetal Classic Design with navy strap.

(I’m selling the white face watch, the navy Gunmetal, scroll down to the end of the post for more information).


The Linjer watch features:

  • No branding
  • Domed sapphire crystal
  • Ronda 5 Series movement (includes date window)
  • Full grain vegetable-tanned leather
  • Came in 3 sizes, 34mm, 38mm and 41mm

I opted for their Classic Design because of the two-layer dial. The watch face is simple and bold, and as a web designer, I needed a watch that also defines me as someone from the design field. The navy strap is a bit darker than what I expected, but I have also gotten myself an extra strap, which is tan color, as it was included in the early bird pledge.

The first thing I notice about the watch is its heft and solidity. This comes from the fact that the entire casing of the Linjer is constructed from brushed stainless steel. This is how a watch should feel. It’s a different feeling of heft than the Daniel Wellington. It’s hard not to like the Linjer Classic watch, so I bought another 34mm Classic watch, which is their black edition.


In conclusion, the watches are pretty, in a classic, timeless way. These watches have become my favorites since I received them. If you’re looking for a minimalist watch, you should check out their watches collection.
