OPIFEX, craftsman or maker in Latin, founded by a team of passionate watchmaker and craftsman who worked on watches for many years in Hong Kong.
We focus on each process of manufacturing in order to make all of our products in high quality. We concentrate on the product to make them great with our watchmaking experience.
In 2017, we stepped out from our workshop and gave birth to the VENTURE, the first watch with unique in-house made movement in Kickstarter history. The brilliant skeleton date disc stuns every backer.
Two years later, in 2019, we continue our philosophy, to go where others have not tread, with our craftsman spirit, we are brave to challenge the limit again.
Introduce OPIFEX TWO, a watch that redefines diver style watch. Whenever you are underwater or on the ground. Every time you look at the watch, you will be amazed by its engineering and appearance design. It is difference to other watches you found in the crowdfunding platforms, and it is certainly affordable.
TWO Carbon (Limited Edition)
TWO is not only the second watch by OPIFEX, it also has many features matching its name.
TWO-Tone Diamond Cut Bevelling
On top of the basic skeleton pattern of SEIKO NH70, we add four decoration inserts. Their bevelling is diamond cut and plated with silver, gold or rose gold, giving TWO premium outlook.
TWO-Tone Turning Bezel
Bezel features two-tone embossed indicator, provide high contrast to the mark. You can check how much air remains in the scuba tank quickly underwater, as well as luxury looks to TWO.
Instead of applying boring single colour luminous in three areas, we applied green C1 on the indexes and SuperLumi Nova BGW9 on the bezel and three hands. Besides the look, it also provides clear vision even when the hands overlapping the indexes. You can check the time quicker and enjoy more under water.
On the limited edition, there is a perfect fusion of material of Forged Carbon and 316L Stainless Steel, provides you the ultra-lightweight and high-tech look with excellent performance.

Cool Fact: Why negative pressure test important?
Negative pressure represents exhausting air out of the testing chamber, to simulate the effect on the watch when user quick ascents under water, the pressure applied on the watch suddenly decrease.
It is important to divers and pilots watches. Without this test, the crystal may have a high chance to pop out during ascending.
FRIENDLY TO THE OCEAN!
The main source of the pollutant in ocean is plastic waste. To let your next generations could enjoy clear, beautiful underwater world , OPIFEX would like to do something good to the ocean, to minimise the usage of plastic.
We eliminate avoidable plastic on the packaging. All OPIFEX TWO packaging are made by paper and apply least glue. It saves the ocean and certainly provide the best protection to ensure your TWO gets safe before arriving your home.
We are also developing a plastic bag made by PVA to replace the bag protecting the box. PVA is a water soluble and biodegradable polymer. It releases only water and CO2 to the environment after degradation. Yet the minimum order quantity is very high. We need your helps to boost the quantity!
To save the ocean, Do Support Us! We could apply more environmental material to your packaging. You can even dissolve the bag at home to experience how friendly we have done to the ocean.
