Custom design, high quality and genuinely affordable, the Seahorse is our vision of a modern dive watch with a vintage touch. Every part has been designed and built to our exacting standards and specifications. We wanted a watch that could provide that vintage feeling and still be a great fit for a weekend at the beach, a nice dinner out and of course, casual wear throughout the day. Designed with durability, wearer comfort and style in mind while maintaining an affordable price point. The end-result is beautiful, but more importantly extremely reliable.

Brushed 316L stainless steel case
316L is a grade of stainless steel that has extra-low carbon content and is extremely resistant to corrosion such as seawater or acidic liquids. It is also magnetic resistant, unlike the general-use stainless steel grade of 201or 304L. With Molybdenum added, it gives a better overall corrosion-resistant property than 304L. Therefore the material is widely used in diving equipment due to the materials' high corrosion-resistance. Most major luxury watch companies use it for the overall well-rounded advantages.
Lumed Ceramic Bezel
Ceramic bezels are stronger, more scratch resistant, and last longer than the usual metal ones. The 120 click unidirectional dive bezel keeps precise timing and the bright C3 Superluminova on the markers glows brightly.
AR-coated double domed sapphire crystal
The Seahorse is fitted with a sapphire crystal, the most resistant form of crystal there is. Sapphire is the second hardest substance on earth, so hard that only a diamond can scratch it. It's coated inside and out with an anti-reflective coating for maximum readability in any light. It features a convex curve on the outer side of the crystal and concave curve on inner side of the crystal and therefore allows a clear view of the dial at almost any angle where as a regular domed crystal will show distortion when viewing the dial at certain angles.
C3 Superluminova on dials, hands and bezel
C3 Phosphorescent pigments, often called lume, operate like a light battery. After sufficient activation by sunlight or artificial light, they glow in the dark for hours. Larger markings are visible for the whole night. This activation and subsequent light emission process can be repeated again and again, and the material does not suffer any practical aging. The hour markers, bezel markers and hands all glow in the dark, making your watch usable even without any light.
Screw down crown
Commonly found on dive watches, a screw-down crown ensures water-resistance by sealing the crown to the case of the watch. A seal is created when the case locks with the crown's internal threads and gaskets, fastening the crown securely into place.
A screw-down or threaded case back has threads that allow a tight, waterproof seal. The case-back of the Seahorse features an engraved seahorse and the serial numbers of this limited edition.
200m water resistance
The screw-down case-back along with the screw-down crown allow a water resistance of 20 ATM or 200m. It`s therefore suitable for high impact water sports and aqua diving not requiring helium.
Drilled through lugs
Drilled through lug holes make for easy strap changes, allows use of stronger bars and prevent the inevitable scratches on the underside of the lugs from frequent changes.
Sunray Sandwich Dial
The dial is produced with a sandwich effect which gives a sense of depth to it. The dial design was kept clean and legible. It features a sunray effect that lets it sparkle in the sun. The hour markers are filled with C3 Superluminova which makes them glow in the dark for hours.
Seiko NH35 automatic movement
The Seahorse comes with Seiko's powerhouse NH35A automatic hacking movement. The NH35A movement has a bi-directional rotor, a hand winding option and over 40 hours of power reserve. The Seiko NH35 automatic movement ensures that your watch will run for years without ever needing a battery. It is one of the world’s most popular automatic movements
Our vintage style high-quality waterproof dive watch straps are feeling nice and soft but are really tough and durable.

Risks and challenges
The Seahorse ships from Austria (EU) to anywhere worldwide. If you're outside the EU, you'll need to confirm any import duties you may be required to pay with your local customs office.
We have taken every precaution to ensure that we can deliver on schedule. Production delays have been prevented as we have the final prototypes for production, with all specifications and details locked down with the manufacturer. Throughout the manufacturing and quality control phases, we will keep all backers updated here, on our Facebook page and via email.
Each watch is built to last and this will be achieved through precise production and careful assembly techniques. We are confident that quality will exceed expectations.
The Seahorse will have a limited edition numbered case back. We cannot guarantee what number you will get.
Many thanks for looking at our campaign and we hope you pledge and we can send you one of these brilliant watches.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
