Meet the Rebel AquaFin - ounce for ounce, millimeter for millimeter, the best looking and best performing dive watch available on the market for under $500. We know those are fighting words, but keep reading and we hope we can get you to agree. If you’re familiar with our brand, you’ll know it’s been close to a year since we successfully wrapped up the Kickstarter Campaign for our first offering, the Rebel Aviator. We tripled our crowdfunding goal and shipped out 200 beautiful watches to excited customers worldwide. A year is a long time, and we’ve spent all of it working on our next foray into the watch world.
After seizing air superiority, we’ve come for the Seven Seas. Starting from the ground up with hand drawn sketches and input from professional divers, we were guided by classic design principles and an unwavering commitment to quality and craftsmanship. Coming in at 42mm in diameter and crafted from of 316L stainless steel, this Swiss-made watch is as comfortable behind a desk as it is 300m under water (you know, for those deep-sea lunch expeditions).
In between dives and client meetings, you may find yourself checking out the workhorse Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement, ticking away behind an anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal. Available in 3 exciting versions, we have chosen yellow, red, and white, for colors that bring a perfect amount of character to a watch that’s all business. The AquaFin will come with a high-grade rubber strap, as well as a comfortable stainless steel bracelet. We also have a gorgeous Cordura canvas strap lurking in the background if we hit our stretch goal.
This is the kind of timepiece that will make other watches straighten their ties - it's a watch's watch. Its presence is felt, but is not overbearing. It lifts up those around it, and encourages them to be the best they can be. It is more than just a timepiece, it's a tool.
You may find yourself staring into the mesmerizing waves etched onto the AquaFin's face. The Super-LumiNova on the hands and indices will pull you in and invite you to give the internal rotating bezel a turn. Total strangers may begin to approach you to ask the time, just to get a closer look at your wrist. But fear not, with this great responsibility comes the confidence to bear this "Jason Bourne" of watches.
Rebel Time Company was established by Shneur Lakin in 2015, after he grew frustrated by the industry's skyrocketing prices, but diminishing returns. No stranger to the world of horology, the bug was passed down to him from his grea grandfather and master watchmaker Issador Lakein, a man whose commitment to character, integrity, and honesty can be felt in every aspect of Rebel Time’s watches. We stand by our product 100% and offer a 3 year international warranty as well as a 45 day return policy.
We cannot reiterate how proud and excited we are to share this project with you. This limited run of 350 pieces per color is available now on Kickstarter. Currently available at early-bird pricing of $449 for the first 48 hours, it will then go up to $469 for the remainder of the campaign.
