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!

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

Interesting title right? Well that's how many turtles to-date , About Vintage has saved. You see for every Turtle Watch you buy, they ensure 20 new hatchlings are safely released. So straight away that's a bonus.
Now in terms of the small but perfectly formed timepiece. I love it, the detail in the dial is spectacular and a real conversation starter, the bezel has hints of gold along with an oyster style bracelet, this is watch that looks and feels like it's worth four figures.
