AQUATICO Super CHARGER 300M

Here’s a something different – a new 300m water-resistant nautical watch from a new Italian strap-up known as Aquatico, a sort of non-diving diver if you will.



The watch which has a pretty dynamic name, Super Charger is distinguished by its square multiple-piece case.

This case is of course in Marine Grade 316L Stainless steel – it measures 44mm with a lug-lug to measurement of 54mm and a thickness of 16mm which includes the crystal.



Talking of crystal – the Super Charger is fitted with a flat Sapphire crystal with AR-coting on its inside.



Special features of the watch include a sandwich dial in either black or blue and decorative caseback sporting a lovely little mermaid perched on a dolphin’s back.



SuperLuminova BGW9 has been used for the hands and markers. The watch is powered by a Seiko Japan NH35 automatic mechanical movement.

Finally the watch is delivered on an ISOfrane-style vulcanized rubber divers strap with a Stainless steel buckle.

  3. I'm sorry to rain in your parade...

    The aquatico web site models and names differs greatly from the model and name in your post.

    At the site, the model from your post belongs to the pilot watches line and it's named: "Pilot One" it has all the specs, bells & whistles you wrote above.

  4. Aside from the website listing this under a completely different name, I actually quite like the piece. Somewhat of a B&R inspired look, but not quite. However, it is the state of the website that worries me. A lot of sections are still under construction, including the one on shipping and return policy. No actual photos could be found, and in general, the thing smells like either a spoof company, or one that was way to eager to get out on the market. Thought about actually ordering one of these, but the above mentioned issues prevent me from doing so.

    1. Yeah, I noticed that too - actually they just whacked a mermaid on the case-back so that it could be considered a nautical-esque watch in order to get posted here. What can I say ;-)
