Halios, famous for their very successful range of watches including the Laguna, Tropik, Puck and the record breaking Seaforth series, has announced a new watch. Or actually two watches using similar building blocks.
Below the information that is known so far about the two versions:
1) Fairwind : 39mm, rotating bezel with Sellita SW200 automatic movement and 20ATM water resistance. Intended as a sport watch for general timing purposes, it will feature a bi-directional ball-bearing bezel mechanism (i.e. not suitable for dive timing purposes). Bezel options: sapphire dive bezel, sapphire 12 hrs or steel 12 hrs. Dial colors: Bathyal Blue with orange seconds hand / Slate Grey with minty seconds hand.
2) Universa : 38mm, fixed bezel with Sellita SW216 handwinding movement. Designed as a field / general use watch with 10ATM water resistance. Dial colors: Bathyal Blue with light blue seconds hand / Slate Grey with minty seconds hand.
Both models will be built on the same platform to maintain cohesion across the 2020 lineup. Both will be available with a stainless steel bracelet as an option.
We were literally swamped with emails about this upcoming release. People are aware that it has been hard to get new Halios models in the past due to limited availability. Although Halios assured us that "plenty" have been ordered, we want to make sure that our customers will be first-in-line once the watches are ready.
