Vertigo watches have a very clean, classic styled, minimalist dive watch on the blocks for 2021.
The Medusa features an engraving of the legendary figure on the caseback, a trusty Seiko NH35 auto movement inside, plus sapphire crystal, superlume and three stunning colours on the dial. Unidirectional bezel, and a 300m depth rating. We love the fume green best, but the damask red is a winner too, then there’s traditional black with bright yellow hour markings. Case size is 41mm which is probably just right for many gents wrists, material is 316 grade stainless.
The good news is that the price on pre-order is just 230 euros. Yep, that is a bargain price for a 300m dive watch. Try adding another 1500 euros on top for anything with Swiss made on the dial. OK, you get the cachet of Swiss, but for the money a Seiko powered automatic with genuine underwater ability has to be a Christmas gift winner for any watch lover.
Just saying, we aren’t on commission or anything. More at the Vertigo site.
