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.
