Mankind have been exploring the underwater world for centuries, and 1926 was a game changing year for all sea explorers. Made with a hermetically sealed case for optimal protection the first waterproof wristwatch marked a major step forward – making timekeeping underwater an everyman luxury. This collection is a humble celebration of that remarkable achievement.
The ocean and its wildlife have always acted as a great inspiration for us. With our Turtle watches, we want to give back to the turtles. We do this by supporting the Turtle Foundation.
For each Turtle watch sold, we ensure that 20 hatchlings of the endangered species Green Turtle can get a safe start in life.
With the launch of the Blue Turtle Edition we saved more than 20.000 turtles!

This is my second watch from About Vintage and I am just as satisfied with this watch as I was with my first. The quality is very evident, and I think the real beauty of this watch is its simplicity. Thanks for a great product. Mark Cadwell
Thank you so much for your continuous support! We appreciate the kind words and hope you will enjoy your AV watches for many years to come.
Wishing you an awesome day!
So I love this watch looks very elegant yet sporty I love how just by changing the band it gives a complete different look to the watch. I love it so much. I’d definitely recommend it to anyone.
We are so happy to hear your positive feedback! Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience - it means the world to us.
Overall a nice looking watch but the click bezel doesn't feel super steady and it doesn't line up with the 12 o'clock mark 100%. Also the bracelet is a bit too hard to close and open.
Deliveries in Norway; I recommend Bring/Posten or DHL. UPS is totally out of control, stay away from UPS. French Chronopost is also terrible in Norway due to difficult tracking. Ola Bryhn
