HELSON 3'500m GAUGE Prototype

By TLex Are you ready to have your world rocked?! This incredible looking 3'500m diver is HELSON's latest creation. 



Taking its inspiration from a vintage depth gauge; its 47mm titanium case features a bronze fixed bezel and has been fitted with a vintage style hand-cut 5.5mm thick domed sapphire crystal. 



Notice the crown position between the lugs at 6 o'clock and the HEV positioned at 12 o'clock. 



The watch's case thickness with the crystal is 22.5mm, but Peter Helson assures me that without the crystal the case isn't any thicker than their Shark Diver is.



In other words, it's wearable! More details to follow . . .
