My friends over at the Chronoquatic Watch Dept. turned me on to another cool Kickstarter watch project. They are raising funds for a series of automatic dive watches called the Chronoquatic Sub Sonar. So far, these watches look really good!

The Chronoquatic plan is ambitious, but very achievable. They plan to release 4 models with three different bezels. They are all classic diver-style watches. Most will have 39.5 mm diameter cases and 10 Atmosphere (100 meter) water resistance. However, some models will have 45 mm diameter cases at 30 Atmosphere (300 meter) water resistance. The movement will be a “Japanese, Caliber Seiko NH35A, hacking system and 41 hours Power Reserve.” The price points look reasonable and delivery is planned for April 2016.
If you simply like the look of a classic dive watch or you want a hard-core dive watch, one of the Chronoquatic Sub Sonar watches will fit your needs and your budget. This is a chance to get a classic watch with solid components at a very nice price point. The project site is worth checking out for the pictures and technical drawings alone. Without further ado, check out this project –
