Alkin is a brand new UK watch brand and they have a range of Miyota powered autos just launched. On order at Watch Gecko as it goes.
We like the blue dial version best, so here’s the spec on it;
The Alkin Model Two – Blue is a modern take on the traditional dual-crown diver benefitting from a simple but robust design. Instead of a super compressor system, the Model Two employs screw-down crowns and a water resistance of 300 metres.
The dial is well balanced and distilled down for maximum legibility and functionality while retaining a clean, modern look. The sandwich construction gives the dial a sense of depth, with the stepped bi-directional bezel floating 1.4mm above the lower dial with raised hour indices. The dial is also protected by a double-domed sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating and features Super-LumiNova® BGW9 on the hands and bezel markers.
The 41mm brushed stainless-steel case gives this diver a presence on the wrist without feeling too bulky thanks to the short lugs. To reflect Aklin’s modern take on tradition, the dual crowns have been laser etched with a ‘hatching’ motif, instead of machined.
The Alkin Model Two is powered by a Miyota 9039 automatic movement, visible through the open sapphire caseback. The Model Two also comes on a brushed stainless-steel bracelet with fully articulating solid links, solid end links and a milled clasp with micro-adjustment for the perfect fit.
