By TLex Here are the very first spy shots of the HELBERG CH1 prototype watch of which there are two; one in bronze and one in steel.
HELBERG is a new vintage label from H2O Watches. The CH1 watch was inspired by the Rolex Deep Sea Special (DSS) experimental watch from 1960.
The CH1 plays off of many of the strong design features of the original watch such as the extreme spherical crystal, the massive lug plates and oversized crown.
The spherical crystal is hardcore - but don't worry a more subdued crystal is also available as an option.
Something that you might not know about the CH1 - its caseback is sealed with triple o-rings!
There aren't many watches that require such sealing, but then again 6000m mechaanical watches are few and far between.
The watch is offered with either a custom leather band with Helberg buckle or full metal bracelt with a a divers clasp with sliding adjustment.
Stay tuned for spy shots of the CH1 Bronze next week plus a full preview of the prototype watches.
