Filson Dutch Harbor Watch. Inspired by the pioneering dive watches of the 1950s, the watch is the brand’s first diver’s model. Everything about this watch evokes the unparalleled style and amazing performances of those groundbreaking pieces that have marked the history and evolution of modern horology.
It’s sporty and vintage design is reminiscent for the traditional diving watch, a precise instrument that was designed to conquer the deepest parts of the oceans. With a sturdy and masculine 43 mm case, the Dutch Harbor comes in either brushed Stainless steel, brushed Stainless steel with polished bevels or with a sandblasted finish with a black PVD coating. The case-back is manufactured from stainless steel, is secured by six screws and features a brass PVD plating and engraved Filson logo.
The watch is produced only with a black matte velvet dial that is highly legible due to the addition of Swiss Super LumiNova on the large hour markers, orange hands and at intervals on the unidirectional timing bezel. To ensure water resistance to depths of 300 meters, the Dutch Harbor comes with a screw down crown system and a completely sealed curved, scratch resistant Sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating.
The most interesting diving-related features of its super-functional bezel are the diving elapsed time function and the demarcation for safety stops. For instance, if you accidentally bump the watch, the bezel will tell you how much dive time has elapsed. Also, for easy demarcation of diver safety stops while ascending, the Super Luminova material is used for indexes at every minute position for the first 15 minutes markers, then at every five minutes.
The Filson Dutch Harbor Watch is equipped with a Shinola Argonite 715 quartz movement. This high quality movement ensures superior precision and also boosts a very useful and practical date window located at 6 o’clock on the dial. To guarantee that every single piece is perfectly constructed, these watches have been hand-assembled in Detroit, USA and come with the comprehensive, best-in-class Shinola warranty.
Boosting style, precision and innovation, the Dutch Harbor is a brilliant option for those who adore fashionable and eye-catching timepieces. Free shipping when ordering over 200 dollars. This modern and extremely functional diver’s watch is available at Filson.
