Model Two - Blue Dial / SS Case
The model two takes inspiration from the traditional dual crown diver archetype, but brings it up-to-date in a form that is simple, modern and robust. This update is followed through in the mechanics of the watch, which employs screw down crowns and a depth rating of 300m, instead of a true super compressor system. The use of a double-domed sapphire crystal, Super-LumiNova BGW9 and the Miyota 9039 automatic movement further demonstrates alkin’s central commitment to quality and functionality.
All elements of the watch have been distilled down to create a visually balanced piece that offers maximum legibility, functionality and versatility. The 41mm brushed stainless steel case has a utilitarian style with proportions that give it a presence on the wrist without being too bulky. The short lugs (48mm overall) reach down to hug the wrist, helping to balance out the slightly larger case diameter. To once again reflect the updated nod to tradition, the ‘hatching’ design on the crown that controls the bezel, has been laser etched, instead of machined.
To create a sense of ‘depth’ in the dial design, the model two employs a sandwich construction, with the hour indices cut out to expose the lower dial. This is further enhanced by a stepped rotating inner bezel being set 1.4mm above the face of the dial, creating a more contemporary and robust look.
The model two will ship on a brushed stainless steel bracelet with fully articulating solid links, solid endlinks and a milled clasp. Adjustment links are secured by screw pins and a six stop micro adjustment allows you to achieve a perfect fit.
