Iridium Watches Microbrand

IRIDIUM Watches is a Microbrand Watch Startup based in Singapore under the AUDRIC Brand.  Iridium Watches proudly presents the Torpedo, a 300m rated Diver’s Watch.

With carefully picked components, regulated movements, its vintage styling and fun colours the Torpedo projects tropical vibes all through the day. Timing your dives was never more fun.

The Torpedo is a great everyday timer that can be worn in any situation. It is built as robust as all forthcoming IRIDIUM watches but has an elegant twist to it.

Excellent color options, a perfect size for every wrist, and a sturdy build are the hallmarks of the Iridium Torpedo.

Time your barbeque, wear it to the beach, pair it with summer shades, or dress it up with a Tux, the Torpedo is your essential companion.

Case

CNC cut from Surgical Grade 316L Stainless Steel, a material used extensively in the shipping and seafaring world, each Torpedo watch is highly resistant to corrosion.

42mm wide and 51mm lug to lug are perfect dimensions for a Do-Anything-Go-Anywhere watch for the modern man.

A screw down crown with an engraved and luminous Iridium logo helps keep moisture out.

Bezel

Unidirectional 120-click bezel on the Torpedo will be your faithful companion for all your timing activities. Actual depth diving or timing your microwave pizza, do it with the Iridium Torpedo and it’s fully lumed bezel markers (BGW9 Superluminova).

Crystal

Taking cues from vintage diver’s watches we have purposefully used a domed sapphire crystal. It creates a mesmerising distortion right at the egde, while maintaining perfect visibility at all viewing angles. Sapphire crystals are also impervious to scratches due to regular wear.

Bracelet

Each Torpedo watch comes with a custom made fitted bracelet in Stainless Steel. 22m wide at the lug end, the bracelet features alternating beautiful brushed and polished elements.

A secure diver’s clasp (Ratchet Buckle) holds it together and screws in the links make for easy sizing.

Design wise we put our unique twist on the classic Jubilee style and came up with something different yet coherent.

Dial and Hands

Keeping it cool is the need of the hour and five carefully picked dial options give you tons of fun in these long and hot days.

The hour markers are laser cut and filled with BGW9 Superluminova for an extremely bright glow and enhanced visibility.

Laser cut hour and minute hands feature bright BGW9 Superluminova for long lasting legibility in the darkest of environs.

Movement

Beating at 28800 bph the venerable Miyota 9015 Automatic movement powers the Torpedo ever forwards.

We specially made custom rotors for your viewing pleasure. The movement is five point regulated and tested rigorously before the watch is shipped to you.
