This Is One of the Most Affordable Automatic Dive Watches Worth Buying
Branching out from its generally casual-chic lineup, New York-based indy brand Martenero has introduced its first dive watch. Not only does it feature increased water resistance, sapphire crystal, and a steel bracelet, but it’s even more affordable than almost any of the brand’s watches before it. The Martenero Belgrano comes in four colorful versions, each aggressively priced at $320 (pre-sale until 12/31, and $395 thereafter).
Restrained in size for a dive watch, the Belgrano features a 39mm-wide (14.5mm thick) steel case and is water-resistant to 200m. The two darker versions in blue and black each offer a pop of color, but two other versions make a bolder statement with bright red and stark white dial and bezel combos. Dials feature plenty of lume, as dive watches should, here being of the Super-LumiNova C1 variety. The Belgrano is powered by the Seiko NH35 automatic movement with 41 hours of power reserve.
The Martenero Belgrano is currently available for preorder at a price of $320 until December 31, 2019, after which the final price will be $395. Delivery is expected in April, 2020.
