Baltic are one of the most interesting French watch brands aorund and their new dive model, the Aquascaphe SB01 is launching on 30th June.
Featuring a steel case, one direction bezel with 120 clicks, a depth rating of 200m and a screw down crown, this entry level dive watch offers a rugged spec, plus Miyota automatic movement for just over £560. Our fave Aquascaphe at the moment is the Bronze Blue Gilt, at 750 euros – just saying.
The SB01 comes on a Tropic blue rubber strap, bright night time lume, and has a double domed sapphire crystal. Baltic are one of many indie brands making viable alternatives to those who fancy a Swiss dive watch, but are reluctant to pay the £1200-£1600 entry price for many prestige brands.
Sure, you get long term collectability by going Omega, Rado, Oris, Tudor, Longines etc. But Baltic watches offer pretty much the same tech spec – albeit with a Japanese movement – for a great deal less. And you know what that price saving means right? Yep, buy another watch!
