NEMINUS Spaceman COLLECTION [from the NBL pool and BEYOND]

Whether breathing Nitrox through an umbilical on a simulated spacewalk in NASA’s 202ft long by 102ft wide by 40ft deep, NBL (Neutral Buoyancy Lab) with its 6.2 million gallons of water,

simmering in the hot tub with a beer in your hand or chained to your desk; Singaporean based, Neminus Lab have a dive watch that will transport you to the moon and beyond.

Released in a collection of three astronautic inspired designs, the Neminus Spacemen offer a unique take on diver’s watch that starts with an astronaut’s training for weightlessness in the confines of a pool and finishes with a galactic view through a spherically-domed cupola-inspired Sapphire case-back.

The homely Earth Dweller with its combination brushed steel and DLC finish, the Moon Explorer in Black DLC reflecting the dark side of the moon, the red planet-inspired, Mars Traveler in Gunmetal DLC –

each are equipped with a chunky 120-click buzz-saw diver’s bezel, an HEV, a 5mm-thick triple-AR coated Sapphire crystal and a screw-down crown.

The 300m water-resistant, 316L Surgical Grade Stainless Steel cases of the Spacemen measure: 44mm in diameter by 52mm lug-lug and 16mm thick with a weight of 135g.

Besides their unique finishes, they are further distinguished by individual name plates on their left lateral sides.

While the booster nozzles of a rocket lead to the design of the crown, it was the rotation of The Planets themselves that inspired the multi-circular rims on the bezel inlay and an exploding star for the radial-starburst dial.

The dial is home to more rocket booster derived designs in the form of the hands as well as sloped & metallic indexes sandwiched with BGW9 SuperLuminova,

a date window with a metallic frame and a lumed seconds hand which is weighted with a crescent-moon.

Powering the Spaceman collection is a Swiss made automatic movement, a Sellita SW200 in Elabore Grade which offers: hours, minutes, sweep seconds and a date function.

Special features of the Spacemen include: 3-Dimensional printed representations of each of the watch’s planet or moon inspired designs –

the swirling oceans of the Blue Planet, the grey scarred surface of The Moon and the dusty red sands of Mars can be found on each respective dial.

Floating in a pool, resting on the Sea of Tranquility, crossing baron landscapes or gazing upon the heavens, the Neminus Spaceman has been designed to accompany you wherever you may go - choose your preferred destination or choose them all!
