GRS Partners With WMT For A Hong Kong-Inspired Tropical Dive Watch

Oct 21, 2020

Category: Style

There’s no shortage of military-inspired watches, these days, and while many of them focus on the iconic variants crafted within Europe, a small selection of favorites from other areas of the world can be found — if you look hard enough. The most recent just so happens to be the Panton HK 1959 from GrowthRing & Supply.

Partnering with the seasoned wristwear providers at Watch Experimental Unit (WMT), GRS has created a limited-to-100 run of the traditional Panton watch, complete with a tasteful, faux-tropical dial and arrow iconography. But what makes the collaboration so interesting is the brands’ interpretation of the dated, military-inspired timepiece. On its face, an “HK” demarcation sits atop a faded amber dial, shedding light on the watch’s Hong Kong-inspired lineage, and complementing its Chinese date window. Within, a precise Miyota automatic 821 movement, protected by a water-resistant acrylic crystal, makes its debut. You’ll be able to pick up the heritage-imbued dive watch via GRS’s website in two different iterations — a $567 NATO strap edition or a classy, stainless steel variant that can be obtained for $645.

Purchase: $645
