The Mk II Nassau begins where the Limited Edition Kingston left off in the 1950s. A period of time that saw the world regain its optimism and hit its stride after the Second World War. In rapid succession passenger jet service, the conquest of Mt. Everest, underwater ocean exploration and iconic cars including the Jaguar XK120, Mercedes Benz 300 SL “Gullwing” and Chevrolet Corvette burst forth onto the scene. From the period utilitarian reference design the Nassau summarizes in a 39 mm package the Modernist movement and echos the birth of sport diving.With beautiful eccentricity the mechanically driven Nassau looks at home in the digital world while simultaneously declaring the arrival of the Jet Age. Its fundamental design elements are a product of the prevailing design philosophy at the time and the fact that “luxury branding” as a concept was still in its infancy. The world of watches was still very much grounded in their intrinsic value rather than the image they projected.

 

This DNA enables the Nassau to transcend its origins.Based on the limited edition Mk II Kingston the Nassau series will explore the genesis of the dive watch from new and evolving perspectives. The first in the series (shown above) features a matte black non-date dial with red triangle bezel inlay. Every watch in the series is expertly assembled by hand and individually tested in the USA or Switzerland. Additional refinements include a high-grade Swiss Made mechanical movement, superior nighttime visibility, and curved Rhodium plated hands. Attention to detail is a hallmark of every Mk II timepiece from the design to the finished watch.
