By TLex Introducing HALDOR Watches and their debut divers model, the Abissi. While the Abissi was designed in Germany and manufactured in Switzerland, HALDOR Watches are based in South West Slovenia near Italy.
Despite the Italian sounding name, the Abissi’s German design elements shine right through. The watch has a robust and purposeful look to it; not too dissimilar to some of the other German offerings we’ve seen from H2O or Limes.
Divers features include: a 4mm thick AR-coated Sapphire crystal, Swiss C3 SLN, a Helium Escape Valve at 9 0’clock, a 120-click type unidirectional rotational divers bezel with a ceramic inlay,
a screwdown crown and caseback and a water-resistance to 1000 meters. The Abissi’s WR has been officially tested and certified in a Swiss testing facility. The caseback as a cool aquanaut motif that incorporates the Haldor logo.
The Abissi has been made using top quality materials such as the Marine Grade 316L Stainless steel that was used for its 45.5 x 15.5 x 57mm case or the Zirconia (ZrO2) that was used for the inlay of its divers bezel.
The Abissi has been assembled in Switzerland according to the strict guidelines and regulations of Swiss watchmaking using the latest manufacturing techniques that the industry has to offer.
Judging by the close-up of the inlay, the execution seems flawless; those are some precise looking engraved markers, spotless filled, too – and that lume capsule looks perfect!
HALDOR only use Swiss Made movements that have been tested in modern Swiss laboratories.
These are set and adjusted to either TOP or Chronometer grade to ensure the highest level of precision. For this model this model, the Abissi receives an ETA 2824-2 TOP GRADE.
