Serge Panchenko Applies His EDC Knife Design Prowess To Automatic Watches

Jul 23, 2020

Category: Gear

Serge Panchenko first started building blades in 2008, and after cutting his teeth on what he describes as “traditional forged items,” the Ukrainian-born craftsman and knife designer quickly moved on to increasingly elaborate fixed blades and folders. And though he’s already produced a diverse array of knives and other EDC-focused products such as tactical pens, beads, mini pry-bars, keychains, and multitools, Serge has now announced his latest endeavor: the Model 1 Watch.

Inspired by an amalgamation of ’60s and ‘70s dive watches, as well as Serge’s signature custom knife design language, the watch is built around a 42mm 316 stainless steel case with a matching 316 screw-down crown with a raised Serge Knives logo and your choice of stainless steel or antique bronze bezels. Paired with a stainless steel bracelet — that, like the case, has a stonewashed finish – the Model 1 also boasts a branded screw-down case-back, and a 3mm sapphire crystal covering a textured, Swiss Superluminova-painted dial. Water-resistant to 200M (or 656’), the Model 1 is powered by a Miyota 9039 automatic movement with a 42-hour power reserve. Official pricing has yet to be announced, though Serge tells us the Model 1 is expected to carry an MSRP in the $400 range with deliveries expected to begin in around four months.
