Product Description
With a rounded 45-millimeter case and large, lumed orange hands, the Avalon immediately calls to mind pilot watches, but Melbourne Watch Company has included some details to make this one stand out from the crowd. Let’s start with the dial, which features a circular pattern of seven grooves that draw the eye to the center, which is also textured with a mini wave pattern Read More

My Avalon arrived today, and I love it. Quality all 'round, from the watch to the strap to the substantial display box, to the overall packaging. My only minor gripe is that the strap - which is unmistakably delicious genuine leather - is a little on the thick side, making it somewhat stiffer than a regular strap. It does add character, and it doesn't look out of place, but it's going to take a while to soften up and fully conform to the shape of my wrist.
Overall I'm very happy with my first Drop, and as an ex-pat Melbourne boy, I now have a little piece of home that I can wear any time I want.
Thanks again for joining this drop! We have submitted the group's order with the vendor and they are working hard to prepare it for shipment.
We are currently working towards a new update system to reduce confusion in the Discussion and in the interim, all future updates on this drop will be sent directly by e-mail. Please verify your email address is correct under your settings so that you receive the latest updates for the group. You can change your settings here: https://www.massdrop.com/settings/user_info
To read more about the new updates please go here: dro.ps/updates If you have any questions, please visit our Help Center (http://massdrop.com/helpcenter).

What is the caseback material?
Sorry mate for the slow reply - it's sapphire crystal in the centre of the caseback. If you need anything else, please email me (sujain@melbournewatch.com.au) in case I don't see it on here!

One more question, regarding the local drop shipping, is it still going to cost USD $16.50?
@Vincent.H Can you please advise?

Hi there, all international shipping costs are charged on the same rate. $16.50 for this drop sounds correct.

is great that description has exact name of movement, sapphire, etc. many watch drops especially the quartz ones do not have this info.

Could I get mine shipped to Sydney instead of shipping it to the other side of the world and back?

Kudos to Melbourne Watch Company for some nice-looking original designs! I'm glad to have learned about your timepieces through Massdrop.
Now my question...
Is there a way to obtain a replacement strap for the Avalon? I did not see it listed on your Web site.
Keep up the great work!
Hi - thanks for the kind feedback! We do have replacement straps, just not listed on the website. If you do purchase and would like an extra one, just send us an email and we'll sort one out for you!
Kind Regards,
Sujain Krishnan Managing Director - Melbourne Watch Company

Thanks for your response!
Yes, I decided to pull the trigger on this purchase as I really like the watch. I expect to use it often and thus was interested in an additional strap. I will be in touch for the details.
Looking forward...

Not sure if 400 is worth it for a miyota movement. I'd really consider if it was in the 200 range.

There's more to it than just the movement, right? ;)
I love the look of this thing, and I'm originally a Melbourne boy myself, so for me it's a no-brainer.

Why is shipping $8.25 when MWC's web site says they ship worldwide for free?
In this case we would bulk ship to Massdrop and then they fulfill individual orders themselves.
