Oceanica Watch Company is a small microbrand based on Long Island, New York. It’s been around since early 2018 and this is their latest model on Kickstarter.
Witha 200m depth rating, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, steel case and 42mm case it ticks all the right boxes, and a trusty Seiko NH35 movement inside means that the retail price is more than affordable too. The project has already been funded by the way, so it’s going into production and deliveries are expected to start shipping in December 2020.
One thing we really love about this watch is the bracelet which looks well made and superbly finished, here’s the word from Oceanica;
`Another new upgrade is the Oceanica branded custom H-LINK screw bracelet. This bracelet is of great quality and I really had to go out of my way to get this done. It is a 22mm bracelet with Solid end links and tapers down to 18mm at the custom clasp. All of the links are held in by screws on one side. The bracelet itself features a matching brushed finish to the case of the watch. The clasp is signed with our Shark Logo and features a custom milled clasp with chamfered polishing on the sides for some visual excitement as well as SIX micro adjustments!’
Available in blue or black dial options it is priced at £183 on the early bird discount deal, which you have to say is excellent value for money. Try getting a 200m Swiss dive watch at twice that price. You can buy a pair for £344. Amazeballs. Can’t fault it.
