Isotope Watches Microbrand

In primo piano

Today I want to show you the microbrand Isotope watches, a watch that really surprised me and probably one of the best diver at such a competitive price.

After discovering this watch on Instagram I decided to review it through my Mrwatch93 page.

The diver in question is the Goutte d’Eau model, whose shape was conceived taking inspiration from the 1937 Talbot Lago t150 car. Seeing the case of the watch you immediately understand why.

Isotope watches has conceived this watch with a high quality diver in mind but with an absolutely contained shape (40 mm in diameter).

Isotope Watches – you decide the movement

This watch has several features that make it special. Starting first with the choice of automatic movement, we can in fact decide to have a Seiko NH38 movement (41 hours power reserve and accuracy -20/+40 seconds per day) or a SwissMade Sellita SW2000 movement (38 hours power reserve and accuracy -12/+12 seconds per day).

316L steel, sapphire crystal and water resistance up to 200 meters complete the qualities of this watch, along with the obviously screw-down crown and internal rotating bezel.

Among the features that struck me most we have the colors of this watch starting from the second hand, until the strap born and the crown that moves the inner bezel, all these elements always present the same color harmony.

In fact, Isotope Watches are available in green, red, blue, yellow and orange!

Isotope Watches – How to buy it

Batiscafo watch microbrand

Today i want to show you a new microbrand funded on Kickstarter!

A new Vintage Military Bronze Watch, the Batiscafo diver!

This timepiece is created by Andrei Troff, automotive and product designer and artist and has got different features

“My watch design is inspired by batiscafo, Italian for Bathyscaphe first free-diving deep-sea submersible machines from 1948.

They were massive structures with small illuminators able to godeeper than 10km underwater. I designed this watch for people, who adore vintage watches’ aesthetics as much as I do.

The idea is to focus attention on a CuSN8 classic cushion shape bronze case large and solid with no bezel.

Unique features are the comparatively small dial and digits etched directly on the 45mm case.

From this layout we can see a lot of bronze surface.

This material has amazing patination possibilities, which will create a unique look for each timepiece with use.

It has a durable and time-approved Japanese Seiko NH35A automatic movement with date indicator.

The 20BAR waterproof case allows for the watch to be used for scuba diving. I hope you enjoy this piece of art!

Yours, Andrei”

Sandwich dial construction is a traditional solution for military watches. It is difficult to damage the hour markings with an accidental hit or drop. Bronze is also a traditional military material because it does not glint in sunlight, and CuSN8 bronze is highly resistant to salt-water corrosion.

The Seiko NH35A Japanese-made automatic movement is trusted and durable.

  • 20BAR  waterproof
  • Bronze CuSN8  45mm case 
  • Sapphire glass
  • Seiko NH35N mechanical automatic 3-hand movement with date
  • Stainless steel hypoallergenic caseback
  • Handmade aged vintage strap (26mm)
  • Limited 300 units edition
  • Easy strap change

Zero West Watches – the New H1 Hurricane

Today i want to present you the new watch from Zero West Watches! The new H1 Hurricane made with real Merlin engine casing from a WW2 plane!

Despite it’s less than complimentary name, Foulness Island, precariously balanced along the Essex Coastline, is beautiful in a bleak, blasted kind of way.

Due to that remoteness however it’s home to 212 people, many times that in birds – the original ‘Fowl’ in Foulness – and, until recently, H1-P3708.

zero west watches h1 hurricane

H1-P3708, for those without an encyclopaedic knowledge of aircraft serial numbers, is the designation of a MKI Hawker Hurricane, one of the most iconic World War 2 aircraft ever built, second only perhaps to the Spitfire.

A close second, at that.

Piloted by RAF Volunteer Reserve Sgt Alexander Girdwood, this particular Hurricane was involved in the ‘Hardest Day’ of the Battle of Britain, the day in which the Luftwaffe sent 750 sorties into UK airspace.

h1 hurricane zero west

H1 Hurricane by Zero West Watches – a new vision of watchmaking

During the fighting, according to Girdwood’s own accounts, he was downed after taking out a Heinkel 111, bailing as his plane crashlanded onto Foulness Island – right next to the enemy he had just shot down.

For the next 50 years the MKI Hurricane was left to the soft marshland of Foulness until it was excavated by the Anglian Aircraft Research Group, cleaned up and put on display at the Norfolk and Suffolk Aviation Museum, testament to a defining battle in a defining war.

Now H1-P3708 is getting a new lease of life under the auspices of Emsworth-based watch brand Zero West.

Following in the footsteps of the sold out S4 Spitfire watch before it, the new H1 Hurricane P3708 is both a rugged, technical pilots watch and a piece of British aviation history.

Combining a big, 44mm case with the British brand’s signature, separately forged lugs, with the oversized crown and innate legibility particular to a pilots’ watch, the H1 Hurricane P3708’s aviation pedigree is self-explanatory.

h1 hurricane zero west

What’s perhaps less obvious – unless you fly the occasional Hurricane of course – is the dial layout, a horological reinterpretation of the MKI Hurricane’s slip turn indicator.

The slip scale along the top and turn scale along the bottom have been replaced by minutes, but the dial retains the striking green L and R that characterise the original cockpit instrument.

Printed just above the bottom scale are both a date code and a set of coordinates – the date Girdwood crashed on Foulness Island and the exact latitude and longitude of where H1-P3708 was found.

H1 Hurrincane – the caseback

True to Zero Wests’ mantra of ‘Recovered, Recast, Reinvented’, the caseback is set with a disc of metal taken from the historical aircraft itself.

Recovered on Foulness, the Merlin engine casing was recast by Foundry Motorcycles in Chichester before being cut into discs and reinvented at Zero West’s own Emsworth Studio.

As a pilots’ watch, the H1 Hurricane P3708 is a rugged, mechanical chunk of watchmaking, a watch that will charm anyone that knows their way around a wrench and a piston engine. For many collectors, that alone will be enough. 

Yet it’s also a fitting tribute to not just the legendary Hurricane in general, but the bravery of one specific pilot and the plane he flew. Even though it was relegated to the mud of a remote Essex island, H1-P3708 and Sgt.

Girdwood are both commemorated by this very special timepiece.

Price of H1 Hurricane is £2,995

Zanneti Watches Accessories

Today i want to talk about Zanneti Watches Accessories!

In the hearts of Zanneti they are watch collectors.

As their collection grew Zanneti started to hunt for watch storage solutions.

It soon became obvious that watch storage was too expensive, was not thoughtfully designed and more importantly, watch rolls did not feel as good as the watches they stored.

Why couldn’t watch storage feel more like high-end watches?

Zanneti spent years trying to figure out the answer. 

These guys started to learn about material quality and searching for craftsmen.

They went everywhere from sweat shops in Dhaka, leather schools in Italy, family workshops in France, Thailand and Singapore to world trade shows.

They learned something new from every single experience and decided to compile our journey into Zanneti.

These people are makers of high quality watch storage solutions and watch accessories.

Zanneti Watch Accessories – a different concept

The concept of Zanneti has been derived from polish.

Depicted in the logo are two swords representing the cutting edge and a shine depicting polish.

The aim is to produce watch accessories with master level handcraftsmanship, and a level of sophistication that resonates with high end watchmaking.

Everything They produce, from the quality of suede and leather to the experience of using the buttons echoes with the best practices of horology.

Zanneti believes that they have finally been able to create something that matches the look and feel of a Swiss watch.


They have just launched two new lines featuring their 4 watch and 3 watch holder.

The 4 watch holder is made with Saffiano Leather and Italian Suede.

Their 3 watch holder is our flagship product and is made from Calf Leather from France and Italian Suede.

As every Zanneti product is made in limited numbers to preserve exclusivity, they have limited inventory for sale at www.zanneti.shop and the shipping is worldwide.
