Mod potential:★★★ (You can mod this watch with other DWC components, such as custom dial, custom rotors, hands and cases)

Difficulty Level:

  • Due to the thin and fine nature of a dress watch second hand, these second hands are slightly more difficult to install when compared to our other tool/sport watches powered by Seiko NH movements
  • Key challenge: second hand installation

K1 Hardened Glass vs Acrylite 8N:

Our Mosel case comes in 2 variants, one with K1 glass and the other with Acrylite 8N. Acrylite 8N is a high-quality acrylic that will give you the most authentic vintage look, while K1 glass will offer a balance between the vintage vibe and practicality as it is much harder than acrylic and offers a vastly improved anti-scratch capability (even better than other mineral crystal watches).

K1 glass vs Acrylic crystal for a vintage watch

Our K1 glass Mosel case variant is also decorated with brushed/polished hybrid finishing for a more premium, sophisticated look.


Upgrade your movement to a Miyota 8315 movement to enjoy:

  • 60-hour power reserve (a considerable upgrade from 8215's 42-hour power reserve). This means you can take your watch off for the whole weekend and your watch will still be running on Monday.
  • Hack-second or stop-second feature allows you to set the time precisely
  • Heat blued steel screws decoration
  • Côtes de Genève movement finish
