By TLex Introducing Gruppo Gamma Watches of Singapore, a young online watch brand that has quickly grown along with a loyal group of followers on FACEBOOK.

Gruppo Gamma watches have a strong vintage military style of the likes of some the very earliest Rolexes or Panerais.

The designs probably lean a little more towards Italian Naval brands such as Anonimo or Ennebi and like them it can trace many of its styling cues back to those iconic historic Italian military watches.

While Gruppo Gamma’s watches are of a derivative Italian Naval style their current models are by no means copies or homages rather modern and affordable interpretations of dearly loved historic styles.

Gruppo Gamma’s debut diver was the Bronze Vanguard, a retro-inspired design with some nice contemporary details; perhaps the type of watch the Rolex Ref. 6152 might have turned out to be if it had continued to evolve.

Their earlier series, the Genesis is heavily based on the tool watches worn by Italian Navy commandos in the 50s and has evolved from the Mk I to the current Mk III.

For the Mk III Genesis Gamma has reinterpreted the dial design, giving it a twist not found in the usual homages.

They have also used the new Swiss-made Sellita SW-290 caliber alongside the Japanese calibers such as the Seiko SII NH35, Miyota 8215 and 9015.

Gruppo Gamma use all the typical tool watch materials that are popular, today: Sapphire crystal, marine grade Stainless, Bronze and Titanium.

While their watches boast the latest in dive watch technologies the use of high-quality materials, they are affordable with prices ranging from 400 – 700USD.

The next model which is currently in the works is the Divemaster which promises to be full divers watch.
