By TLex Taking its name from the ancient Greek mythical aquatic beast, the Hydra unlike its namesake is a thing of utter beauty. It is without a doubt H2O's most elegant and understated model to date; blending Mediterranean style with German design and engineering.
It offers not only an attractive divers style from the 40s, but the type of build quality (at an unmatched price-point) that we have come to expect from H2O along with the same level of personal configuration that have set H2O Watches apart from their contemporaries.
With an old school hand-wound UNITAS 6497 mechanical movement and a rotational bezel with two different types of markings, the H2O Hydra is available in either Bronze, Grade 5 Titanium or Grade 5 Titanium with a black DLC coating.
Grade 5 Titanium is around 50% stronger compared to 316L Stainless steel and is highly saltwater and corrosion resistant. The copper bronze that H2O us will develop wonderful patina over time, while sleek DLC version adds as sense of modernity to what is essentially a vintage style.
The Hydra's sandwich dial is available with a sunburst brushed effect in either black or bronze. The dial and the chromed handset both use the same strong-glowing Swiss BGW9 SuperLumiNova. Protecting the dial is stunning vintage-style sapphire crystal.
