Here it is. From the iconic nautilus and Japanese Seiko comes the hybrid, Seikonaut.

Our own reinterpretation, every part, notches and crevices was redesigned from scratch. Creating a whole new allure and a refinement of the iconic design.

Now in DLC BLACK EDITION!! Every visible exterior of the watch case when worn is coated with black DLC. Right down to the little screws on the bracelets and joints.

What is DLC?
Diamond-like carbon (DLC) is a class of amorphous carbon material that displays some of the typical properties of diamond. As the name suggests, diamond-like-carbon means that the layer is as scratch-resistant as diamonds. DLC coating has 5 times the hardness of a 316L stainless steel. With DLC being harder than steel, this means that a DLC coated watch will have a very high resistance to scratches that you will not have to worry about scratching your watch. This coating will not disappear if you accidentally do something that would otherwise leave a huge mark on some PVD-method coated watches. A feature that is highly coveted by many watch enthusiasts.

This Seikonaut case comes complete with clear AR sapphire, sapphire caseback, screw down crown and solid brush and polished bracelet. Additionally, it has a water resistant of 200m.

Designed to fit all of our dials (28.5mm) and original NH movements (grey dial holding spacer).
