This month California-based watch maker Xetum will release a PVD black cased version of their Tyndall watch. You can even get one in time for Halloween. The Tyndall is their flagship watch and comes in a 40mm wide steel case. This Tyndall PVD model is black with a matte finish. It also has a PVD black coated rotor in the automatic Swiss ETA 2895 movement. That isn’t anything hugely different compared to the current model, but it is a new color selection which does add a nice additional flavor to the Tyndall collection.
Right now the Tyndall PVD will only be available on a black leather strap. Perhaps a PVD bracelet will be available in the future. Another piece of good news is that the PVD black version of the Tyndall will only cost $100 more than the polished metal version. That means a retail price of $1,495 and you can pre-order them here. The watches ship on October 23, 2012.
