Isotope Goutte d'Eau Automatic.

Recommended Posts

I posted about this watch in Mach 0.0013137' 'Suggestions' thread - but thought it deserved one of its own.

The Isotope Goutte d'Eau Automatic is a Compressor Style Diver and a homage to the the Finnish World Ice Diving champion Johanna Nordblad. Isotope are, however, London based.

It originally appeared on Kickstarter last month, with a choice of a Miyota 9015 or ETA 2824 movements - but it was cancelled partway through.

It has now been re-released on Pre-Order, but apparently they had problems obtaining both movements - so now the choice is either a Seiko N35, or a Sellita SW200-1. However, the price has dropped significantly - and I just ordered a Sellita version for £328 which is only slightly more than the Miyota was originally on sale for. The Seiko movement one can currently be ordered for £244.

The watch has a number of configurations - as well as the choice of movements you have either a Blue accented version (with engraved casebook) or an Orange accented one (with display back) and you v=can either chose date or no date (the dated one having slightly bigger indices.

Apparently (for the car buffs) it obtained design influences from the 1937 Talbot-Lago d'Eau T150-C SS Coupe - although I don't see it myself. 

A link to the Pre-Order Site is here https://isotopewatches.com/collections/watches/products/new-goutte-deau-orange-and-nordblad-special-edition-hiper-supporter?variant=15401219457087 it needs 91 Order to proceed and there are currently 71 - orders close on 1 August so I'm hoping this will be successful 

A Video review is here - although please not it is before the change of movements and before the date option was available
