This is one custom feature we love at NWC mag; choosing your movement. The Valiant model from WW watches comes with a Sellita Swiss movement, or the trusty Seiko NH35 unit.
There is something to be said for the Swiss option, but the Seiko NH35 is a VW 2.0 diesel unit engine, super reliable and easy to fix, or replace if it ever gives you any trouble. Our verdict is go with Seiko and spend the 450 quid saved on another watch.
Yeah, the price difference is quite steep, with the Sellita model retailing at £1150 and the Seiko one at £695.
Either way, you get a 41mm automatic, sapphire crystal, stainless steel case, 100m depth resistance and a screwdown crown. There’s a very nice dash of lume on the markers and hands too.
The WW watches have straps made from recycled fire hoses by the way and support fire fighter charities, with over 40K raised so far.
