Our first timepiece

For the Brigadier we designed and manufactured a custom case made from 316L stainless steel. This low-carbon ‘surgical steel’ is resistant to both pitting and corrosion. The case is rated at 10 ATM water resistance, meaning you can wear it while doing the dishes or for a quick dip, but you should avoid diving or other water intensive activities.

The straps we have specified for the Brigadier are velvety soft 22mm wide suede.  We’ve decided to use curved spring bars to give the straps a nice integrated look as they meet the case.

The watch is powered by one of the most reliable movements available today – the Seiko NH35. The NH35 includes a date window and beats at 21,600 vph, resulting in a smooth sweep of the second hand. It is also shock resistant and hacking, making it one of the best values on the market. Best of all – no battery needed.
