About


Oceanica Watch Company was founded in 2017 by two cousins based in New York. We are back again here on Kickstarter hoping for a third successful campaign to raise funds for our newest watch design, the Seahorse. I have always had a passion for diving watches, especially dive watches before my time. The Super Compressor watch design is probably my favorite all around style of watch that existed in the past from prestigious Swiss Brands, but has died down quite a bit in these modern times. Our latest model, the SeaHorse brings the past into the future , mixing an outstanding brilliant dual-crown internal rotating dive bezel design and combines that with modern materials and machinery. This is a project I am personally passionate about and hope we can enjoy the journey together! I, myself have been collecting watches since the young age of 15 years - and hope to bring my expertise and passion into your list of hobbies as well!

 Full Retail Price of the SeaHorse will be $300 USD - You can save big by Pre-Ordering here and supporting us to create this awesome timepiece! The earlier you back us the better the discount!

Case 

The case is crafted of solid 316L Stainless Steel , which is the industry standard for well made timepieces. It features a 42MM Diameter and a 46MM Lug to Lug width making it wear much smaller than a true 42MM watch ( Wears like a 40MM ). The 22MM lugs themselves spiral a bit downwards and hug the wrist comfortablly along with a hint of polished beveling. This Super Compressor style watch features two crowns - One crown at the 2:00 position that operates your inner-rotating dive bezel to time actions up to 60 Minutes. The second crown at 4:00 is screwed down and branded with the Oceanica Shark logo which you will use to set your time and date.

Dial

C3 SUPERLUMINOVA APPLIED 4 TIMES - LUMED LOGO - OUTER RING - MARKERS - HANDS
DIAL MANUFACTURE

It seems nowadays the most popular color dials are either Black or Blue. I, myself love a nice diver with a blue or black dial and so do most of Oceanicas backers. The dials feature hand applied lumed markers and an awesome lumed "Oceanica" logo. A very bold arrow pointed lumed pointer hand is utilized for the hours while a straight sword hand is utilized for the minutes. A long sweeping candle wick seconds hand is very legible as it sweeps around the dial as well, featuring lume on the tip. These dials were meant to be easy-to-read at a glance, legible, and in your face as a true dive watch should be. The finishing is very smoothly brushed without any sharp edges or blemishes for a comfortable fit on the wrist. To top it off, we placed a flat genuine sapphire crystal with inner anti-reflective coating for superb legibiity in high light conditions. As you can see, we are trying to provide the highest quality watch for a very affordable price. Other brands take shortcuts in components such as Crystals and lume, while we strive for the best quality money can buy.

 Movement

We chose to utilize the very popular NH35A automatic calibre. This movement is robust, accurate, and tough. It will literally last a lifetime with very minimal care. It features 24 Jewels, hand winding, QuickSet date, and a hacking feature. ( Hacking means when you pull the crown out to the final position the seconds hand will halt so you can synchronize the exact real time on your watch ) I have had much experience with this movement and really have faith in it. Many of my personal watches also do contain the NH35A automatic movement. Another nice feature is the 40 Hour power reserve, which is even the standard in Swiss automatic movements.

 Stainless Steel Bracelet

The solid 20MM 316L Brushed Stainless Steel bracelet we chose is up to my standards in terms of quality and it did take some time to find. The links themselves are adjustable with screws and are curved for a nice comfortable fit without pulling hair on the wrist. The clasp itself is custom and milled from solid steel, featuring a signed buckle and micro adjustments for precise fit. Overall, this bracelet certainly exceeds quality standards for this price point.

 Obstacles?

As with any new project there are always obstacles. However, I do have a secure and confident supplier located in HONG KONG where the watches will be produced. This is a very reliable and large factory and I do not foresee any errors coming our way. I have used them before and the quality and timing is always superb.

 How will I get my watch shipped?

All watches will be shipped via USPS International mail. Whether your in the USA or outside of the USA shipping is free and tracking will be supplied once your order goes out and sent to the email provided here. The only country we do not ship to is Saudi Arabia due to difficulties in the past. Thanks for understanding.
