Our 1926 collection has now evolved to feature a fully automatic mechanism, inspired still by the game changing year of 1926, that altered the future of sea exploration.
The 1926 Automatic is a limited collaboration between About Vintage and Jonathan Harboe. The elegant design of the hermetically sealed case, featuring a larger bezel with vintage aesthetics, has been carefully designed by hand - with every detail accounted for. After years of work, we can now, together with Jonathan Harboe, proudly present the latest addition to our collection, establishing a fully automatic diving watch as an everyman luxury.
ABOUT VINTAGE X JONATHAN HARBOE
The 1926 AT'SEA Automatic is designed in collaboration with the Danish actor and friend of the brand, Jonathan Harboe. Jonathan has designed his dream watch and we think it has become the coolest diving watch on the market.
But why listen to us?
Hear the story from Jonathan in the video.
"The watch became a combination of About Vintage's Scandinavian design and my love for the maritime," says Jonathan Harboe about the design of the 1926 AT'SEA Automatic.
The watch has several vintage-inspired design elements. It includes a curved sapphire crystal glass, a flat bezel and a lowered dial with luminescent hour indicators (dots) to create the right vintage feel. We have chosen to add luminescent dots and hands, so you can keep track of time - even in the dark. As the icing on the cake, we have a screw-on crown shaped like an onion to commemorate the first diving watch.
All three models in our 1926 AT'SEA Automatic collection are limited to 999 pieces of each. This makes the collection one of our most exclusive to date. The watches were released in two pre-order productions and all pre-order packages were quickly sold out. Now we welcome the 1926 AT'SEA Automatic to our family of permanent collections - at least until it's sold out.
THIS COLLECTION SUPPORTS THE OCEAN CLEANUP
To support the action taken to preserve our planet's oceans, About Vintage and Jonathan Harboe have decided to donate a portion of all of the proceeds to The Ocean Cleanup. Owning the 1926 Automatic will not only act as a reminder of the significant evolution in watch manufacturing, but also as an ode to helping in the preservation of our world's oceans.
We hope that our newest addition to the 1926 AT'SEA collection will expand your horizons on what it means to wear a diving watch, in addition to raise your awareness on aiding our oceans.

I really love the design, sandwich dial, dial color, hands and bracelet. Lume not so great. Although I’ve come to realize that the watch was assembled in China (no indication on website or from any reviewer), it really feels like a quality piece and value for the price point. The Automatic movement should be solid and last. So far it has run well and met the 40hr reserve. Great presentation box. Ultimately I bought two watches from AV.
Overall I am very pleased with this watch, the rose gold and blue work perfectly together and the broad bezel gives it even more of a vintage style and unique looks. The finishing is great, just as with my first About Vintage watch. The only thing I would have wished for is that the movement was hacking and from the Miyota 9 series instead of the 8 series.
Nice watch to watch. Dark blue in real is inside almost black, but beautiful blue outside in sunlight. Nice sice on my wrist. Get positive reacties. Good choice.
you sent the wrong watch

I'm wearing this watch every day. It is solid with a good movement. I wish the bazel would have been ceramic but is still a great watch. I love the dial!!! I absolutely love the sandwich dial! The shipping was fast.
Thank you for so much for your positive review - it is very much appreciated! The 1926 Automatic is definitely a beautiful watch and we are pleased to hear the shipping went smoothly as well.
Wishing you an amazing day and summer :-)
