UPDATE: invitations for the pre-orders of the Halios Fairwind have been sent out to customers on the waiting list on Sunday May 10th.
We have reserved watches for confirmed wait-list customers on a hidden area on our site. The watches here are some units we can offer to the general public. Stock will be updated regularly.
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 some more details about the Halios Fairwind model:
The Fairwind has a diameter of 39mm, a 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 elapsed time bezel, sapphire 12 hrs or steel elapsed time. Dial colors: Bathyal Blue with orange seconds hand / Slate Grey with minty seconds hand. A stainless steel bracelet will be standard.
NOTE: We received some questions about pricing. Below an explanation of the build up.
Our price includes European VAT tax of 21%.
The price published by Halios in USD (775+65 shipping) is the price excluding obligatory VAT tax at import into Europe. If you purchase outside of the EU, this tax normally is calculated and charged by your local customs via the courier service. For Halios, we take care of the import into Europe.
We have to publish and charge prices to consumers including the VAT tax. This amount of 156 euro per watch we pay to the tax authorities in The Netherlands. You will see this on your invoice as seperate item.
