SEABORNE SEA VENTURE AUTOMATIC

Seaborne ’ s entry in the diver design category ticks all the boxes for both design and quality . In one version a traditional black edition brings the tool-watch look to mind , while its more colorful brethren encapsulate the feel of Summer day spent on the beach or on board your boat . Eminently wearable at 40mm , the stainless-steel case is capped with an AR coated sapphire ( underside only ) crystal , while framed by a 120 click uni-directional bezel with its own mineral crystal cover . Inside beats the ubiquitous Japanese NH series automatic mechanical movement protected by a screw-down crown and threaded and engraved back . A no-nonsense dial is enhanced with BGW9 lume that glows brightly blue in the dark on dial and hands enhancing legibility in all conditions . Holding the watch in place are a variety of woven NATO strap designs that pass under the spring bars for easy changeover , while a rubber version that attaches directly to the spring bars is also available . Priced at $ 369.97 , Seaborne donates 5 % of profits to local coastal conservation entities and you can tell them you saw it in AboutTime for a $ 40 discount . www . seabornewatch . com
