The world’s thinnest dive watch is a premium style statement

Hailed as the thinnest dive watch on the market, the new Spinnaker Spence 300 Automatic is just 10.9mm thin, yet is capable of enduring 30 ATM of water resistance.

The design aim was to produce a dive watch that felt uncommonly slim on the wrist, but didn’t sacrifice functionality.  We’re told the 316L stainless steel case took over a year to develop. Clearly time well spent.

If you’re looking for precision engineering in a stylish watch, this is it.

On the wrist legibility is high, thanks to liberal use of lume and cleanly defined indices. There’s a wide choice of dial colours: pitch black, indigo blue, hickory brown, sea green, and crimson red. A distinctive arrow hand complements the aesthetics.

Beneath the sapphire crystal lens, with anti-reflective coating, the Spinnaker SP-5097 utilises a 24 Jewel Japanese Miyota 9039 automatic movement, capable of delivering over 42 hours of power reserve.

A custom designed, solid bracelet matches the slimline case, however the Spence 300 also ships with an additional hand stitched 20mm leather strap for added versatility and dress options; we reckon it’ll look great with a shirt and sports jacket.

The Spinnaker Spence 300 Automatic is available online from July 22, priced at £500 (Euros 600, US$650).
