Create a GMT diver with a rugged, stone-washed, patina silver case!
Want something a little different, a watch that looks better as time passes, and a rugged tool watch that's as good-looking as functional? Then this might be the best watch for you :)
The watch case is plated with a thick layer of 925 silver, so it will age just like the silverware on a pirate boat. You can either let it age naturally (takes quite a while), or follow our guides to create that perfect battle-tested look. The watch is powered by the tried and true Seiko NH34, so you also have the GMT two-timezone functionality.
We paired this watch with the MN-style parachute strap as we believe this watch should be out there with you exploring. This look welcomes any scratches your exploration might bring. The battle scars and the patina are what make your watch unique.
