About

  •  We have set out to design an affordable, reliable, solid water proof watch from scratch , that could be worn as either a Tool watch, Dress watch or a Diver watch.
  • Added a Seiko automatic movement that hacks and also hand windable 
  • With the ability to choose from 2 bezel styles and 3 dial colors 
  • this allows you to make that watch a little unique and your own. 

The Taniwha brand:…..meaning: (Maori) water spirit of the deep. The Ururoa model: …...meaning: (Maori) great white pointer shark 

 Both Watch cases are identical so you can mix and match the type of bezel with the colour dial of your choice.

 The Case Design. Designed from the scratch up with a 42mm wide case without the crown and 48mm lug to lug. The 48mm x 42mm combo will give you a diver watch case that will suit most people’s wrist from small to large. At 13mm high it gives the chunky appearance of a diver but still slim enough to slip under a shirt cuff. The crown guards have being designed to give you easy access to the crown yet still provide full protection. 20 ATM (200m) water resistant Screw Down Crown The logo design on the crown and Dial. Inspired by the Jaws of the Taniwhai Image.

 The Dial. To keep it as clean and uncluttered as possible , we have moved the minute markers to the chapter ring , made larger hour markers and put less emphasis on the wording and logo Hands are Sword and Plonger type.
