Editor’s Note: Watches & Wonders (formerly SIHH) has moved online and Baselworld 2020 is canceled, but that hasn’t stopped watch brands large and small from debuting their new wares. Stay on top of this year’s best new watch releases here.
Baltic’s Aquascaphe continually makes it to the top of our lists of favorite dive watches. Whether in steel or bronze or in the form of a special, limited edition, it’s a watch that captures our attention.
Luckily, we now have another variant on hand. Equipped with a steel, unidirectional 12-hour bezel, the SP01 is the same Aquascaphe we know and love, but now with the added ability to quickly and easily track a second time zone. A thicker handset and larger dial indices filled with Luminova BGW9 make for increased legibility over previous models, while an orange “Baltic” logo is another vintage-inspired touch.
The SB01 is available with either a blue Tropic-style rubber dive strap for ~$583 or with Baltic’s steel beads-of-rice bracelet for$682. If you loved previous iterations of this beloved French dive watch but were waiting for a steel bezel — or, better yet, for a 12-hour bezel — now’s your chance the nab the watch of your dreams!
