Graeme Haughton's brand, the SAS Watch Company, has been around for a while now and they have just launched their latest dive watch, the SEA-02. He is launching it on Indegogo and it is now LIVE and ready to fund!

Graeme makes fantastic quality watches and the SEA-02 is very affordable and starts at around $550 USD. It comes in two dial colors (black and blue) and comes with a BOR sytle custom bracelet. The photos and other information regarding the model is below...check it out and go get yours while the early birds are still available! His watches are very popular, so you may want to check it out soon!

Welcome to the Indiegogo campaign for
SAS Watch Company Ltd. We are a small watch company located in Ireland, producing professional grade watches. On offer here is our new model the SEA-02

As we progress with the production we will add photos of the new model. There is more information about us at the end of this page and if you have any questions about us or the new model, please feel free to email us
[email protected]





We would like to introduce our new anti-magnetic professional diver: the SEA-02, the long awaited follow up to the SEA-01.




The SEA-02 encompasses everything that the SEA-01 was and more, from a more ergonomic design and a slightly smaller case size, the SEA-02 is the perfect everyday watch. We got a lot of emails from people looking for a smaller version of the SEA-01 so, we set out with the case and reduced it from 44mm diameter to a 42mm diameter, reduced the lug width from 24mm to 22mm and we have incorporated a double domed sapphire crystal.
Every element of this watch is designed by us using the latest technology, it is manufactured to the highest standards and assembled here, in Ireland, by hand. Every watch is also regulated and tested thoroughly before it leaves.









We are offering two versions of this watch: a black dial version or a blue dial version.
The black is a matt black and the blue is nice dark navy blue.

Both will have a metal bracelet, a rubber strap and a tool for swapping the straps.
The recommended retail price for this watch will be €900,(€1,107 incl. VAT - EU only)
but we are offering it here for €550 (€676.50 incl. VAT - EU only)
or get both for €1000 (€1,230 incl. VAT - EU only)
(*the prices are set in Euro but I believe you will see them in your currency)








Best of both worlds.
The SEA-02 is the first Irish Made Professional divers watch on the market. This is something we have been working towards for the last number of years. But we know you want more, so on the inside we are using trusted Swiss movements.





This is our first Indigogo campaign and we want to do something special so we are keeping this special edition a limited run. We are only making this version available here and you say how many are in the limited edition.
Once we pass the targeted amount we will only produce the amount backed. So if there are only 200 backers then we will only produce 200, or if there are 2000 then that is the amount we will make.
The caseback will be engraved with “Special Edition” and will have the serial number starting at 0001/???? (the ???? will be replaced with the final amount when the campaign finishes). To make it as fair as possible we will give the serial number in the order of when it was backed.






The case diameter is 42mm x 49mm with 22mm lugs. The height is a very comfortable 13.5mm from the bottom of the caseback to the top of the domed sapphire crystal. The strap width is 22mm.
The case is finished in a brushed effect and has a polished top edge. The underneath is curved to sit comfortably on your wrist and the edges rounded for maximum comfort.



The crystal is a double domed sapphire. We are using a double dome to eliminate distortion when the watch is viewed from an angle and we are using sapphire crystal for its hardness and scratch resistant properties.




The crystal is held in place with a screwed-in locking ring to prevent it popping out during decompression on commercial saturation dives.


















The rotating bezel is the most important feature for divers. It is used to time dives and is used as a back up to computers. The bezel rotates anticlockwise and with 120 clicks it is easy to line up with the hour hand.


We design everything to be tough and durable and this especially goes for the bezel. We have deep etched the top and coated this area with black PVD. This means no matter how tough you are on your watch the bezel will always be easily read.




We have changed the design very slightly over the old model, we have added minute marks all the way around to make it easier for divers to time their dives.




Accuracy and durability matter so we have chosen the outstanding Swiss made SW200 movement. This movement is the work horse of the Swiss watch industry and parts are easily obtained, meaning it can be serviced long into the future by any good watchmaker.
The SW200 is a 26 jewel automatic mechanical movement, it runs on the movement of your wrist, and it has a 38 hour power reserve.









This watch uses a mechanical movement and all mechanical movements are prone to magnetism. Elements such as the hair spring can get magnetized and cause the watch to run inaccurately, so to combat this we have incorporated a shield around the movement made of Mu-metal. Mu-metal is a soft iron that is commonly used in magnetic shielding.













This watch is capable of reaching depths of 500 meters, and can be used by both scuba divers as well as professional commercial saturation divers. We use Viton rubber seals to ensure there are no leaks.

For those of you who are familiar with their first model, the SEA-01, here are some comparisons of the new SEA-02 and SEA-01 side by side.

Just to note, these were some preliminary images, so the SEA-02 may be slightly different in its final form (end links)

I like them, but not a fan of it on the bracelet. Would prefer the lugs to be softened/rounded but it would still make a great strap watch.

The lugs are rounded
