The Watch
In these troubled time cleanliness has become very important and this is the first watch I have worn which that is self-disinfecting. each Venture Field Medic III is coated with Protectr™, a long-lasting nano-tech disinfectant that kills harmful microbes effectively. This is especially useful for front-liners who are exposed to potentially harmful bacteria and coronaviruses on a daily basis. The Protectr™ coating is non-toxic, non-mutagenic, non-chemical, weather-proof, and dermatologically proven to be safe for human use.
Protectr™ is essentially a layer of sharp, nano-particle blades that pierce the membranes of dangerous microbes, effectively killing them without the need for chemicals. Worried about damaging the coating? Well, breathe easy – it will stand guard against dangerous microbes for up to 30,000 washes!

It also can help save lives as you can check both Pulsation and Respiration using the Scale and Chronograph function.
The pulsometer scale is designed to measure heart beats per minute.
Activate the chronograph and count to 30 beats. Stop the chronograph and take a reading in beats per minute,
The respiratory scale is used in the same way but with 5 breath counts to measure breaths per minute.

The Case
The Titanium Case coated with BOLDR Protectr™ is 38mm without crown and 41.5mm inc crown, it has a unique angular design with 20mm lugs and a lug to lug of 44mm being Titanium it is exceptionally light, and the watch weighs only 42g the Venture has a very impressive water resistance rating for a field watch of 200m / 20ATM, thanks to the screw down case back and crown resistance and two oblong pushers to operate the chrono features. the case back has the very recognisable AMA The Star of Life engraved on the back giving a quite slim 12.2mm depth
And fitted with a Flat sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating for ease of reading and great scratch resistance

The Strap
The watch comes with a matching Blue Nylon Nato with Titanium hardware, you can also buy a Blue Parachute Strap or upgrade to a matching Titanium Bracelet, after several days on my wrist, I can say that the Nato is extremely comfortable, I switching to a Parachute Strap and found that my favourite

Conclusion
When you visit the Boldr brand’s website, you can read and discover their philosophy and the DNA that they want to put in their different models.
This is the first time I have worn a Boldr and they certainly live up to their reputation for building a quality watch that is both functional and stylish, this watch is not a massive diver and it’s lightweight package and size is idea for a go anywhere Field Watch that will not get in the way of anything you do,
As soon as you open your transport case, take the watch out you immediately feel the quality of this watch which I am certain will delight people looking for a tool watch that will follow you in all your expeditions and that has a unique personality, from its Stunning Blue Sunburst Dial, two colour lume, lightweight and functionality that both protects the wearer and could help save lives. Initially the Strap felt stiff but softened up after a couple of days, I have been wearing the watch on a cheap Aliexpress NM Parachute style strap for the last week and find this is also a great option, one day I will try it on a Bracelet to compare all three options.
Knowing that it is offered at the price of only 267€, there is no debate to be had on the value for money offered here.
