H2O Watch Kalmar II CARBON [relaunch]

H2O Watch has just relaunched their Kalmar II CARBON diver.



I think if I am not mistaken; last time around, there simply weren’t enough full-carbon Kalamar bracelets available –

so this is something that they have addressed with the relaunch and of course, true to form they have also thrown even more dial variants into the mix.



For the uninitiated, H2O use a special Carbon composite material based on carbon fiber. They are still the only watchmaker in their segment (that I know of) using this high-tech material at least for a diver –



a material that until now has predominantly only been used by upper echelon brands such as Audmers Piguet, Officine Panerai et al.



As well as providing exceptional technical performance, the Carbon used by H2O has an uneven, matte black appearance, which when cut results in an example that is utterly unique –

just as you might see if you were to cut through a piece of fine wood exposing the grain. This is accentuated by the use of H2O’s turbine-style bezel.



This means that each and every new Kalmar II Carbon will be unique and different from the others thanks to the technical and aesthetic characteristics of its Carbon case.



The structure of the high-tech Carbon material used by H2O has been engineered to enhance both the aesthetics and the performance of the material.

It has been used to make the case and the unidirectional rotational diver’s bezel of the Klamar II Carbon.



The physical properties of Carbon are much higher than those of similar materials or of other materials used in the world of watch-making, such as Ceramic or Titanium:

Carbon is lighter than these and is much more saltwater corrosion-resistant, as well as this it is also hypoallergenic.



While the Kalamar II Carbon’s case material might be futuristic, every other design detail of the watch has been
faithfully inspired by H2O Watch’s most popular diver’s models.



So we know that that H2O’s Carbon case is a pretty big deal (and it is), but we must also consider that they are possibly the only watch brand offering a full Carbon bracelet!
