Marnaut dispatched its first dive watch back in 2018 with an effective Kickstarter crusade, the Dark Surge 300m . We audited this piece prior in the year and left dazzled with its one of a kind, ocean imp enlivened dial and 300-meter profundity rating. Situated in Croatia, author Mario Jutronic investigated the Adriatic Sea growing up and his watches currently reverberation those audacious years. The customary plunging stylish of the primary model has been moved up to a Super Compressor style for the new Marnaut Seascape 200, however the youthful brand’s set up plan language stays unaltered. How about we take a nearer look.
The brushed 316L treated steel case measurements are currently with a 40mm distance across (rather than 42mm on the Dark Surge 300) and 13mm stature (barring the gem). It’s 48mm drag to-haul. The most evident change is the twofold crown engineering, situated at 2 and 4 o’clock, and an inner turning bezel. This arrangement is commonly connected with Super Compressor dive watches. Albeit the Seascape 200 looks like it, it capacities as a customary dive watch with a screw-down caseback and twofold O-ring crowns.
Super Compressors respond to water pressing factor and push on the O-rings as they slip, shaping a more tight seal for a more profound dive. 200 meters was a common profundity rating for unique Super Compressors from many years prior, which the new Marnaut Seascape 200 has, despite the fact that it’s diminished from the primary model’s 300-meter rating. The top crown pivots the inner bezel and the marked base crown sets the time. A domed sapphire gem with an enemy of intelligent covering ensures the dial.
Returning to the ocean imp subject, the dark dial of the Marnaut Seascape 200 has similar 34 metal dabs copying the shell example of the round echinoderms Mario would see on his dives. All the spots are loaded up with Super-LumiNova C3, alongside the sword style hour and moment hands and pointed stone tip of the seconds hand. The rearranged three-sided marker on the inward bezel likewise has Super-LumiNova alongside the five-minute markers and Arabic numerals at 15, 30 and 45 on the bezel. There is definitely not a more noticeable scale covering the initial 15 minutes, yet singular moment markers encompass the whole ring.
Powering the watch is a similar Japanese Miyota 9015 programmed that the first Dark Surge 300 utilized. It has 24 gems, beats at 28,800vph (4Hz) with a 42-hour power hold. This dependable workhorse highlights hacking seconds, a Parashock stun insurance framework and can be hand-wound. It’s a more affordable option in contrast to Swiss partners , yet is handily overhauled and exact to inside – 10 to +30 seconds out of each day (comparable to a Standard grade ETA). The development likewise has a date complication, yet it’s covered up underneath the dial for this situation.
The Marnaut Seascape 200 comes with two 20mm ties – one elastic and the other Italian calfskin with a crocodile design. There are three shading choices in the arrangement, including an all-dark IP plated case with dark dial and inside bezel, brushed steel case with dark dial and inward bezel, and brushed steel case with dark dial and white interior bezel.
Kickstarter costs start at USD 199, CHF 180 or GBP 155 for timely risers with a last retail cost of USD 399. All watches come with a two-year guarantee and conveyances are normal in June 2020. For more data and to put in a request, visit Marnaut’s Kickstarter page .
