Atlantic Diver (REF.102501)
1 Year Warranty
Limited Quantity Remaining
The Atlantic Automatic was first conceptualized as a dive style watch in the early part of 2020. During our prototyping phase, we created physical copies in two color options, each using the same blue dial but having different bezel inserts. Over the course of a few months, we began tinkering with different styles of cases but one thing we knew was that the original dial design was a keeper. As we had several other dive watch designs in the works, it was ultimately decided that the Atlantic would be better off as a casual sport watch and thus we released the Atlantic Automatic in mid-2021 using a completely different case than originally designed.
These very limited model Atlantics share the same dial as the production models, but come in a dive watch inspired case.
Less than 10 units of these prototypes were ever assembled, making these watches extremely rare
*NOTE TO BUYERS: These are not reproductions, these are the actual original prototype watches that are now available for sale. There may be signs of wear such a small scratches on the case and or bezel, or pitting on the bezel edges. Please keep this in mind when making your purchase. All watches are in perfect working condition and come with a 1 year warranty.
Each Atlantic Prototype Edition is assembled using a diving inspired case made from marine grade stainless steel. The watch has an overall diameter of 41mm, measures 49.5mm from lug to lug and sits 14.8mm high. The unidirectional bezel has an aluminum insert with minute markers, a blue and red satin finish and a luminous bead at the 12 o'clock position. This model uses a screw-down style crown, for improved water protection. Each crown has been signed with the Kingsbury 'K'. Overall water resistance for the Atlantic is 100M, enough for bathing and worry-free shallow swimming.
The main attraction of the Atlantic, without a doubt, is the gorgeous blue dial. This beauty has been created using an oil press, which stamps out a unique, 3-dimensional textured dial, with gorgeous sunray effect. All lettering has been embossed and painted, including, the golden Kingsbury ‘K’ that sits proudly above the 6 o’clock position. All indices on the dial are applied, offering a multidimensional design, with the 6 and 12 o’clock hour markers design in elegant Roman numeral font. The baton style hour and minute hands have slightly rounded ends, while the classic second hand sweeps across the dial.
These sporty rubber watch bands are designed for both durability and comfort. Each strap is sized at 22mm wide and have been constructed from a soft silicone rubber that provides comfort and water resistance. The straps will come with a stainless steel buckle tattooed with the 'Kingsbury' branding.
The Atlantic comes equipped with luminous material to help tell time in the dark. The hour and minute hands, as well as all hour markings, have been coated with Japanese made Luminova. This material appears white under normal use and glows a greenish color during low light conditions. This feature not only gives users a functional benefit, but also gives the watch a unique glowing design.
The caseback on the Atlantic is constructed from 316L stainless steel and has a screw-down design. Each caseback has a heavy brushed finish and features an in-house laser marked 'prototype' label.
