Assembled by hand in France, the BiCompax takes cues from the iconic styles of 1940's watches. The BiCompax revives the vintage "Step Case" from the 40's with its distinctive ridge that surrounds the high-domed hesalite glass. The vintage inspiration is evident inside as well, as each watch is equipped with Seagull ST1901 mechanical movement, a reproduction from the 40's that is highly accurate and is visible through the exhibition case back. Presented in black gilt with gold indexes and black leather strap, or in cream with black indexes, a blue central seconds hand, and brown leather strap.
Diameter: 38mm / Lug width: 22mm / Depth rating: 50 meters
Vague Watch Co.'s Grey Fade Submariner gets its name from the dark grey bezel insert, meant to mimic the sought-after "ghost bezel" effect found on the faded black bezels of well-worn vintage sport watches. Adding to the vintage look are intentional but subtle distressing marks of the case sides. It's built with an automatic movement, meaning you'll never have to change a battery, as the watch is powered by the movement of your arm during wear. With a stainless steel case, a screw-down back, and a 100-meter depth rating, the watch is also rugged enough to handle some serious time in the water. On top of that, it ships with a sharp military-inspired case, watch tool, and a classic nylon NATO strap to switch out with the stainless oyster band.
