"There’s certainly no shortage of microbrands these days with small startups popping up around the globe. Quality and price vary widely, but every so often an intriguing, affordable piece debuts that’s worthy of a second look. KLO & CO is a young brand based in the Philippines, launching its second collection, a cool pair of automatic sports watches with dual crowns and internal rotating bezels. The concept itself is hardly rare, but the combination of style, finishing and price make these watches potential contenders against comparable other microbrands."
