Luminox Navy Seals Are Super Value

Let’s be honest, you don’t get a great dive spec from many prestige Swiss watch brands. 200m resistance for two grand? Not that tempting really.

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…

Momentum Aquamatic Has The Mod Squad Look

Momentum Watches has been busy lately launching new models and the Aquamatic is a tasty Miyota powered dive timepiece that offers decent specs for the money.
