SILVER ARCHETYPE ONE - The Serif
Several dial variations were made of the venerable British military issued dive watch. This is the Serif - aptly named after the decorative serifs found on the dial hour markers and aluminum bezel insert numbers (a serif is a small line attached to the end of a stroke in a letter or number). Pictured here with the aluminum serif bezel. This is our painstakingly detailed and exacting homage - unlike anything else available. As such, all components are custom made (excepting the movement).
