GINAULT Silent Service MARK-II

By TLex At the moment I don't have any firm specifications for the new SILENT SERVICE Mark-ii, but would imagine it to share the same or very similar spec. to GINAULT's first Mil-Sub, the BASE MODULE I, which has a 40mm 316L stainless steel case with 1000 feet of water-resistance, a sapphire crystal and either an ETA 2824-2 or equivalent Sellita calibre .



The case looks identical to the BM1, but GINAULT have taken off most of the crown guard to give the watch that ever so desirable vintage-mil feel. The dial takes its inspiration from an early Seamaster 300. There's some stealthy black on black text on the dial, which kind of explains the name 'Silent Service'; such a cool name! I would imagine pricing to be in a similar region of 775USD. The SILENT SERVICE Mark-ii will be available this fall.



I saw this on GINAULT's blog. A proposed additional dial with red text. The GINAULT brand is still very new; no actual watches have been seen yet, but there's plenty of interest in what they're doing and just recently GINAULT banner ads have been popping up all over the place, so expect to hear more from them soon . . .
