Following a successful collaboration between Naval Watch Company and LOWERCASE on a series of military-inspired watches, the two brands have reunited once again for another vintage-styled timepiece, this time inviting a third brand — MOUT RECON TAILOR — for the limited edition project.
Based on the dive-bezelled model of their previous collaboration, the upcoming watch features the same matte-finished stainless steel case and black aluminium dive bezel surrounding a utilitarian dial of the same tone. Instead of the more minimal bar indices of its predecessor, the current model opts for Roman numerals with smaller 24-hour markings on the inner circle, harkening to the Vietnam War-era timepieces crafted by the likes of Hamilton or Benrus. Completing the militaristic look is a black bund strap crafted with bridle leather sourced from UK’s Sedgwick & Co, a black nylon NATO strap, a reliable quartz movement, and a water resistance of five bar.
Scheduled for release sometime in mid 2021, Naval Watch Company and MOUT RECON TAILOR’s collaborative timepiece is now available for pre-orders over on ARK nets for ¥64,350 JPY (roughly $625 USD).
Elsewhere in watches, UNDEFEATED has tapped Tudor for a special Black Bay for friends and family.
