Taking Inspiration from Nature With The new Boldr Safari Vogelkop Superb
Words by Windup Watch Shop

Complex DNA. Constantly evolving species. A couple billion year head start. These things ensure that Mother Nature continues to be the dominant designer on this planet, and has been for quite a long time. So when a watch brand decides it's time to create something new, what better place to draw inspiration from?

Which is exactly what Boldr did with their newest creation, the Limited Edition Safari Vogelkop Superb.

Fashioning their watch from the Vogelkop Superb Bird of Paradise's appearance during it's mating ritual, the watch makes great use of the Superkuro Musuo black paint dial. That plays background to highlights of teal/aqua colored lume on the watch hands and bezel. These design cues correlate to the eyes and plumage of the Vogelkop Superb (pictured below).

Overall, Boldr does an amazing job of translating the Vogelkop Superb’s appeinto a wearable, and unique looking watch. One that once again proves, you can't beat Mother Nature.
