No doubt that vintage watches have grown greatly in popularity, which made us start producing vintage inspired new watches in our collection. As our first vintage-style watch, Proteus PY028 is meticulously designed and expertly crafted to acquire its unique taste that would evoke a bit of nostalgia on your wrist.
In Greek mythology, Proteus is an early prophetic sea-god or god of rivers and oceanic bodies of water, one of several deities whom Homer calls the "old Man of the Sea". This aged steel plating version not only enriched our description of the character of The Proteus, but also revealed our thinking about the meaning of the ancient myths.
The retro Proteus has an angular stainless steel case measuring 42mm wide, 49mm long, and 13mm thick. We used the aged steel coating technology in the original stainless steel case, keeping the style of power and edge, but add the mottled steel sense into the case to appear time gone. This accent also is amplified by the 22mm leather strap made in Italy with rustic colors and beige colored hands, markers and numerals illumed by Old Radium lume. The thick contrasting stitches decorated on the strap complement the old radium in the same tone.
The leather strap is very soft and comfortable, the signed pin and buckle clasp is done in the same aged steel finish as the case. If you plan on taking this out for a swim, you can also change out to the extra rubber strap that comes with this watch.
Another noticeable feature is two tone lume, BGW9 and “Old radium.” The BGW9 is used on the outer ring of the dial. The “old radium” is used on the hands, indices, and bezel markers. It will be more legible and definitely look great in the dark. The seconds hand makes an impression with its lightning bolt look and red accent present at the end adding a touch of sportiness to the monochrome dial. The watch also has an embossed screw-down crown, an anti-reflective double-dome sapphire crystal matched with a handsome four colorways dial.
We hope when wearing this watch, you will have more passion for adventurous life.
