FREELANCER by LAIDBACK – Sandalwood & Bamboo Automatic Watch



The Gentlemen over at Laidback have launched a new Kickstarter with their new watch, Freelancer.

Dedicated to the millions of “Freelancers” in the world, The FREELANCER is a luxurious automatic watch that fuses the natural harmony of wood with the powerful clash of stainless steel. Within the dial itself, there’s a stark contrast between the precision-driven side of time (the black sub-dial with Arabic numerals and the speedometer-style 40H Power Reserve) that indicates the ‘seconds’ and ‘minutes’; and the chill, laidback side of time (the beautiful wood dial with inverted Roman numerals – the section that only tells you the ‘hour’). I hope to symbolize the yin and yang of life through this design – contrary forces that are in-fact complementary.


Freelancer” by LAIDBACK comes in two varieties of wood – Red Sandalwood and Bamboo. Both come with matching Genuine Leather straps with same-color stitching to further emphasize the watch dial.

The Red Sandalwood offers a rich, deep and mature feel; that can appear rugged in the day-time yet classy at nights. The case of the Red Sandalwood has a sleek gun-metal PVD coating that adds to its allure.

The Bamboo offers a bright, cheerful and youthful feel; that appears flashy in the day-time yet snazzy at nights. The case of the Bamboo has a shiny polished finish that will definitely grab attention!


The watches are made with surgical grade stainless steel (316L), scratch resistant sapphire optics for both the front and the back (yes, there’s a “showcase back”!), 5ATM water resistance, and Super-LumiNova photoluminescence. with a 26 jewel automatic movement.
