Kickstarter coming soon for HVD Hand wind vintage dive watch. It will feature a Swiss movement,push-pull crown and an acrylic domed crystal all for $399. It's a new project from the same people that make RZE watches. There is an unboxing video on youtube that I will post below.




It's the 2nd watch in this video

Well this looks like a winner huh True?! 馃槻(y)(y) I hope that they
get a chance to make it because it is a little different honestly. :cool:
Just the gold hands are fun when you think about it, and bring in
a neat retro feel. But then you have incredibly unique ideas like is
being done with that hypnotic dial ! 馃樀

Seriously looks metal one second, and then like a green MOP the
very next. ..Wow, can't thank you enough for the report on these sir !!!

And the video ! 馃槈

HVD says:

We designed every components of the SpectreDiver to create the perfect balance of polished and brushed surfaces. Light bounces off the case in harmony and exudes the quality of vintage watches of yesteryears.

Really seems like it ticks all the boxes sir, and then some actually. (y)馃槷
It takes you back, but then maybe even does a few new things too !
Let's hope they get to build it True because it does look like a fun one. 馃槈

The HVD costs about $350 less than the CWard C65 hand wound diver and both have the same Sellita movement. Some the differences are:

HVD is 40mm with 20mm lugs

CW is 41mm with 22mm lugs

HVD has 200m water resistance CW has 150m

HVD has Acrylic Crystal CW has a Sapphire crystal

HVD has drilled lugs CW doesn't

From HVD's FB page:

"We get a lot of feedback about our choice of plexiglass crystal for the SpectreDiver. There's a good mix of pros and cons for our choice. However, we stand by our design philosophy and roots for the brand idea. Nothing can replace the beauty of the warmth of plexiglass crystal. Personally as a watch collector, we believe there is a time and space for everything and every collector should have a plexiglass crystal watch in their humble collection. I hope HVD has a place in your heart for that."

Boy oh boy, some more great info sir, not to mention pictures ! 馃憖:D

It's really something how each dial really changes the watch up True,
and I wonder if each dial will be different in person. (With the texturing,
or scratches I mean) Will it make each watch totally different than the
next? ..Like how every snowflake is unique? ..That would be neat ! 馃槷馃く
But even if you got the white version, which looks like it doesn't have
the scratching, it would still be a stunner.

Oh, and love the tip of the cap to plexiglass also.(y) It really does
have a charm about it, there's no doubt. Have to thank you again for
posting all of this up for everyone like this True ! Thank you very very
much !!!

馃槃馃榾It really does, because each variation adds it's own flavor to this
design right?! (y)(y) Every time you see a version, you feel like it's the
best of the bunch. Actually is one of those watches where you can't lose
no matter what you were to choose. 馃槈
