NEW - DOXA SUB 4000T Professional

Joining the SUB 4000T collection, the latest dive watch from Doxa comes equipped with a sapphire crystal bezel. Unidirectional, as professional dive watch standards require, it indicates decompression stops in feet to guarantee performance and security in the most extreme conditions. Seasoned divers will also appreciate the luminescent hourmarkers and hands, the helium valve at 9 o'clock, and water-resistance to 1,220 metres. Not to mention its sporty good looks!

NEW - N.O.A MMTH05 Automatic Chronograph

With 12 Superluminova-coated dots serving as oversized hourmarkers applied to the flange: the watch could only be from N.O.A. The Mammoth collection perfectly expresses the intentions of the Ticino-based brand, conveyed through daring combinations and ambitious designs. Often monochrome colours, innovative materials, softened angles and simple complications: the mix might seem ordinary, and yet the result is resolutely sophisticated. None Of the Above once again stands out from the crowd

NEW - SECULUS Royal Marine

Resolutely sporty, daring and powerful with its water resistance to 200 metres, the Royal Marine by Seculus defies oceans and their depths. The 316L stainless steel case houses an ETA 2824 automatic movement, a token of reliability. The result is 48 mm of pure functionality: a three-hand dial and a date window at 3 o’clock, highlighted by a magnifying lens built into the sapphire crystal. Loyal to the rigorous standards and high performance demanded by Swiss watchmaking, the Royal Marine watch is a tribute to devotees of technology and style. Two engraved plates with or without gold plating – one between the lower horns and the other on the left-hand side of the case – proclaim its kinship with the name of both the brand and the model. This finely crafted and virile timepiece is fitted with a sporty triple-link steel bracelet or a silicon strap with diving extension.
