A dive watch that can sink to 1000 metres, with a Swiss movement, for under £800? Sounds too good to be true, but that’s the deal we spotted on the Spinnaker watches website earlier.
Their Tesai Mille model, which is a cool name by the name, has a sapphire crystal, 44mm case, superlume markings and a unidirectional bezel.
The Mille Metri model has a serious depth rating, and as you’d expect this is a functional tool watch, with an optional rubber strap included in the box. Plus pin-pusher tool to release the steel bracelet and make the switch. One thing we like about Spinnaker is that they have a UK sales portal, so you can buy without worrying about import duty and VAT being slapped on.
This is the way ahead for other Asian watch brands we reckon, be great if Zelos, Audric, Advisor, Vario, Orient and others did the same thing.
You can have a black, green or blue dial on the Mille Metri, our preference is the blue. This is a high spec dive watch for Tissot fashion watch money – can’t really fault that.
