ARKEN Watch Co. has just debuted its inaugural watch model — the Instrument ref.1020.

The brainchild of U.K.-based designer Kenneth Lam, ARKEN’s first tool watch is, in his words, “precise and practical” and “built on the principle of functionality and seamlessness.”

The British-designed dive watch is sized at 40mm and boasts a lot of value as being one of the few automatic full titanium 300m dive watches that sits at the $500 USD price point. Other details in the watch include a Miyota 9015 Hi-Beat movement (6 o’clock date), AR sapphire glass, BGW9/C3 Luminova, and a screw-down crown.

Those interested can head over to ARKEN’s website to catch the first 300 pieces on pre-order for a price of $500 USD.
