There are lots of 300m dive watches on the market. Some from mainstream Swiss brands can cost you over £3000 and they look beautiful too. Then there are hundreds of Indie watch brands, all using the fantastic CAD tech available now, so you can basically manufacture stuff on demand.
Horizon is a new brand based in the Ukraine and the enthusiasts driving this Nautilus project have ticked the right boxes for us here at NWC mag. Lovely detail work and the overall styling reminds us of a ships chronometer from a century ago.
Price on pre-order starts at $349, which is cheap for something this well specced we think. Sapphire crystal, 300m depth, 42mm steel or bronze case options, two choices on Super luminova as well. Big coin edged bezel, plus coin edge winding crown.
Inside the workhorse Seiko NH35 will give you no problems at all, famed for reliability.
Dial colours include a stunning green, cardinal red and a Aegean blue, which is our fave. There is also the left-field salmon option, which seems to be in fashion this year. The project is well funded already with 60K raised, so it’s definitely going ahead.
Delivery expected in April 2022, more info here at the Horizon Kick page.
