WE ARE PLEASED TO INTRODUCE A NEW VARIANT TO THE WATERMAN FAMILY—THE WATERMAN VINTAGE.
The Waterman name represents New Zealanders and their Māori and Pacific Island whānau, their shared love of the water. Two colourways are now available: the Waterman Bronze and the new Waterman Vintage.
The Waterman Bronze case will develop patina that will change over time, like the ocean itself and the changing landscape of time. The symbolism of the blue dial represents New Zealand's surrounding waters—the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean. The case is constructed from marine grade CuSn8 bronze; when the patina forms it is hard and forms a protective surface layer. It uniquely takes on the character of the owner and their environment.
The new Waterman Steel Vintage is cased in brushed stainless steel and features a velvet black dial and black ceramic bezel paired with warm-toned Swiss Super-LumiNova®. Note: At the time of this launch only renderings are available as included in the photo gallery.
Both watches feature the robust Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic mechanical movement, paired with textured rubber (blue or black) and vintage minimal stitch leather straps.
The first small production batch already is sold out. More are expected to arrive end of March again. The Steel Vintage model, being a totally new model is offered at a discounted pre-order price.
Both models require a deposit of € 385,-. Before delivery, we will ask to pay the balance of € 400 (Bronze Blue version) or € 300 (Steel Vintage version).
Total price for the Bronze Blue is € 785. Total price for the Steel Vintage version is € 685. The prices include V.A.T., shipping costs will be calculated during check-out.
Note: please select "Deposit payment /no shipping" during check out to avoid shipping costs with the deposit payment.
Note: bronze will develop patina over time and may already show some patina when it arrives in your hands. It is one of the features of bronze that makes every watch unique. The material will oxidize nicely towards a brown/reddish tone when exposed to oxygen and humidity in the air.
