GrowthRing & Supply has just announced its second release of its Project Rising series. This time around, the Hong Kong imprint has chosen to work with WMT Watches (Watch Experimental Unit) for a special edition Panton watch.

The watch takes the form of a traditional dive watch but has been treated to a number of vintage details. Limited to 100 pieces, the watch incorporates a faux-”tropical” dial which gives off the impression that it has been faded from years of sunlight. The watch continues the vintage theme with a broad arrow motif printed in the middle of “HK” where the names of areas “Kowloon” and “Hong Kong” sit below. One of the more interesting parts of the watch is that the GRS team has switched out the traditional numeric date wheel with a Chinese version — a fantastic nod towards the history of the brand. The finishing touch can be seen at the bezel where bakelite material has been chosen to make up its black and white design. Powered by a Miyota automatic 821 movement, the GRS Panton watch has a domed acrylic crystal and is water-resistant up to 100 meters.

The watch is being released with an optional Aziano Vachetta-tan leather strap but also comes equipped with either a stainless steel bracelet ($645 USD) or NATO strap ($567 USD). Head over to GrowthRing Supply‘s website for more info.

In other watch news, BEAMS and SEIKO faithfully redesign the 1965 dive watch.
