Diewald Seahorse – Automatic Dive Watch for under £175!

The Diewald Seahorse

Diewald’s Seahorse is another Kickstarter watch. This one was funded, and the company has a few left over which they are selling at the price of €189 delivered – that is less than £175 all in – which includes a watch, rubber strap, travel case, delivery and all your taxes!

Diewald Seahorse – Automatic Dive Watch for under £175!

Diewald aim to offer a custom-designed, high-quality dive watch that is genuinely affordable. We think that with the Seahorse they achieved their vision of a modern dive watch with a vintage touch. The watch has a “sandwich” dial, with large, triangular, recessed luminescent markers and a slimline case design that looks chunky and easy-to-wear all at once. Have Diewald come up with a true beach to boardroom diver’s watch?

Diewald Seahorse – Specifications

Under the hood is the Seiko NH35 movement. This low-beat (21,600 bph) movement is really popular in low-end microbrands as it offers a smoothly sweeping second hand at a really affordable price. Straps are offered in rubber, leather or perlon and the original run was available in a series of different dial colours.

First Thoughts on the Diewald Seahorse

We are a little disappointed that Diewald did not include a date window – which would have looked great at 6 O’clock with a partial cut-out of the marker – and a fitted bracelet option would have been even better. However we absolutely love the sandwich dial, the case shape and the drilled lugs – and think overall it looks stunning, especially at the price point.
