There are certain types of watches that need to be made of tougher stuff than the norm and dive watches are chief amongst them. If you want to get your hands on a high quality dive watch without the exorbitant price tag, this fantastic looking Aerotec Sea Hunt Dive Watch, which is funding on Kickstarter now, might just be the timepiece for you. Great value for money at under £250, this retro inspired dive watch is already beginning to take Kickstarter by storm.
The Aerotec Sea Hunt Dive Watch (from £219) has a mighty impressive 500m water resistance and a devilishly dapper aesthetic that is sure to resonate with timepiece aficionados out there. Designed with functionality and versatility in mind, this is the sort of watch that is made for the seas but looks equally as good on terra firma and we’re loving the vintage vibes it positively exudes here at Coolector HQ.
Made For The Adventure Inclined
Despite the old school aesthetic of the Aerotec Sea Hunt, it is a watch that is made for the action seekers out there who love heading out in search of adventure. This high quality tool watch has been designed to withstand depths of 500 meters and to maintain functionality and style in conditions that would be ruinous to lesser quality watches. It boasts an Italian aged leather strap, a 316L stainless-steel case and Super-Luminova hands and indexes for first class legibility beneath the waves.
The Sea Hunt Dive Watch from Aerotec on Kickstarter (from £219) offers a highly distinctive design that is both eye-catching and useful for anyone seeking outdoor adventures. It is being offered in three different dial variations on Kickstarter and you can choose from three different dial colours – namely, blue or burgundy brushed or black Meteorite dial and each dial has its own distinct design advantages. Equipped with 3.3mm thick double domed sapphire glass, the double domed feature gives the watch a classy vintage look while still showing the dial from many angles. The crystal will have a double layer of Anti Reflective (AR) coating on the inside of the crystal to reduce reflections.
With a ceramic bezel which plays an important role in the design of the timepiece, it is crafted from stainless steel with ceramic insert and filled with C3 lume at the 12 o’clock marking and has a 120 clicks unidirectional mechanism. One of the stand out features of the Sea Hunt Dive Watch is the caseback with a small sapphire crystal window and diving helmet design which enhances the luxurious style and rugged look of the watch.
As with all watches, it is the movement that is one of the most crucial design elements and the Aerotec Sea Hunt doesn’t disappoint. It uses the well regarded Miyota 9015 movement which is just 3.90mm in height, and allows for the relatively slim case profile and also provides reliable timekeeping. It offers both hacking and hand-winding and operates at 28,800 bph for a smooth, sweeping effect. One thing to note is that it also boasts a 42-hour power reserve.
The Aerotec Sea Hunt Watch is right up our street aesthetically here at Coolector HQ and we’re sure we’re not alone in loving its retro style design. For any man seeking out an adventure ready timepiece that looks great, offers first class reliability and doesn’t break the bank, this one is right up there with the best of them. You’ve still got plenty of time to head on over to Kickstarter and bag yours for a bargain price.
