Dive watches are a different breed from conventional timepieces and need to be made of tougher stuff to stand up to the rigours of heading into the deep blue sea. The appropriately named Bow & Stern have turned our heads here at Coolector HQ with their own version of a dive watch, the Abyss, which is funding over on Kickstarter as we speak – with prices starting at a mighty reasonable £189.
The Abyss Dive Watch from Bow & Stern on Kickstarter is an automatic timepiece which is crafted from premium materials and put together by hand to ensure their precision and they are backed by Bow & Stern’s lifetime guarantee. Relative newcomers to the watchmaking industry, Bow & Stern first hit the market four years ago but they’ve wasted no time in delivering a mighty impressive impressive line up of timepieces and the Abyss Dive Watch might just be their best to date.
Limited Edition Offering
Only a limited amount of these stunning Abyss Dive Watches from Bow & Stern are to be made available so if you’re after an affordable, great looking timepiece for heading into the deep blue then you need to move quickly to throw your support behind this Kickstarter. This great looking timepiece from Bow & Stern has some fantastic features which includes a unidirectional rotational bezel, 41 hour power reserve, automatic 24 jewel movement, 200m water resistance, luminous hands and hour marks and brushed 316L stainless steel casing.
The Abyss Dive Watch from Bow & Stern has already exceeded its funding target on Kickstarter which is testament to its quality and the fact that there are plenty of dive aficionados out there looking to get their hands on and wrists in an affordable, robust and stylish looking dive watch. These fantastic timepieces are 100% Carbon Neutral and for every piece sold a Blue Gum Eucalyptus Tree is planted in the Annya State Forest in Australia so there is an eco-consciousness behind the brand as well which should be applauded.
14 months in the making, there is an impressive attention to detail that has gone into the design of the Abyss Dive Watch from Bow & Stern and the fact that it doesn’t break the bank (something a dive watch often will) is the real icing on the cake. As readability is an essential feature of a dive watch, super-LumiNova has been used to illuminate the indexes, hands and zero mark on the bezel. Bow & Stern have also used the highest quality, brightest glow luminescent material available to ensure the dial is visible in the depths of the deep blue sea.
Robustness and Durability
The Bow & Stern Abyss Dive Watch has a hermetically sealed case back to ensure its waterproof performance and it is fitted with 2mm thick sapphire crystal glass, a screw crown and the ABYSS is guaranteed waterproof to a depth of 200M so whatever dives you find yourself on, it’s not going to let you down.
The sub-£200 price tag is amazing for a timepiece that offers as much as the Abyss does and it’s not difficult to see why Bow & Stern have exceeded their funding target over on Kickstarter. If you love to dive and have been in the market for a timepiece that doesn’t cost the earth (and actively helps preserve it with their tree planting endeavours), look no further than the Abyss Dive Watch from Bow & Stern.
