  1. You're absolutely right, it's used as a backup but the primary (perhaps a better word than ideal) tool for almost all professionals is the dive computer. However I agree that in order to make it a pure diver some extra features like a rotating bezel would be nice. Like we mentioned before we choose to keep the design minimalistic to make it versatile but keep the durability. Regarding depth Hodinkee posted an interesting article busting some divers myths: "Overkill is a good thing when it comes to gear that gets used in harsh environments, but let’s consider the numbers. PADI, the largest professional dive instructor organization, states that 60 feet, or about 20 meters, is the depth to which basic Open Water certification cardholders should dive. Get your Advanced Open Water certification and PADI divemasters will take you to 130 feet, or 40 meters. A 100-meter watch is more than double that depth, and so will be just fine. It also will likely be slimmer, lighter, and less expensive than one rated to the absurd depths we see nowadays on many divers. In fact, I’ve seen more than a few divers wearing plastic 50-meter water resistant Timex Ironman watches as a backup timer." But lets not argue this too much and simply agree that opinions will be different. That's one of the fun part about discussing timepieces and why it can take a while to find the perfect one.
  2. Thanks deano! Yes, it's a screw down crown so the ribbed top is the only part that will stick out.
  3. There is a big difference of having a watch capable of scuba diving and one ideal for scuba diving.. Professional divers wear something called Dive Computers on their wrists so that they can connect and communicate with each other in case of an emergency, it exceeds any timepiece in terms of complications and is arguably a more ideal choice for professionals. But for shorter diving sessions or snorkelling on vacation a divers watch is definitely ideal. We're also clear in our pitch that we wanted to combine the dressed look with durability. Like you mention diver start from 100 m but I understand if you think of it as only an explorer watch instead. I will post the articles here, which we've received previews on, as soon as each magazine release together with some independent reviews. All the best!
  4. Wow, thanks for the warm welcome guys Clumsy as I am I actually tried to post it in that section, but I don't know if it was saved as a draft. We have heard many people mention the Nato-strap so we decided to make it a stretch goal for the campaign. As for the customers and media longplay can't have done much digging there.. Feel free to browse through our Instagram (@amantworld) or Facebook (Amant World) to see some customers and make sure to pick up the April issues of the magazines to read about us. Of course this watch is not the ideal choice for scuba diving, in my opinion no watch is. What we tried to create is a timepiece you can wear on any occasion, the looks of a dress watch with the durability of a diver. Guess you can call it an explorer watch if you prefer. Is this the greatest watch ever created? No. Our goal was to create a great affordable timepiece, with dual sapphire glass, ETA 2824-2 and 10 ATM for €249 many enthusiasts see the value. Cheers!
  5. Hey guys, This is my first post here on the forum but I’ve already read some interesting threads. I’m from a small town in Sweden best known for out chocolate factory and together with a couple of enthusiast we set out to start the brand Amant. Our goal was to make durable and versatile dress watches. We’re currently sold on three continents and have reached over 60 countries. We still haven’t received even one international return since our start about 3 years ago. So this year we decided to celebrate by launching something special. A few specs: Movement: ETA 2824-2 Case: 41mm, 316L Rostfritt Stål, 10 ATM Glass: Anti-reflexbehandlat Safirglas (fram & bak) Price: €249 - €349 It will be strictly limited edition and available through Kickstarter. What do you think guys and is this something you could wear? All feedback is appriciated!
