We all love Seiko MOD watches here at NWC magazine. Seiko NH35 power unit, classic divers watch styles, plenty of lume, steel cases and a fraction of the Prospex price. Great.
So it’s nice to discover a UK based brand, located in Manchester, selling Akio dive watches online for a mere £125. That is great value in the UK, where Indie brands will ask around £600 for a Sellita powered dive watch, or perhaps about £200 for a sterile dial MOD watch.
The Akio 01 model has 200m depth, steel case, saphhire crystal, 120 click bezel and steel bracelet too. Plus you get a free silicone FKM strap as well. That is a sweet deal we think.
