Dark Water 300. This uniquely shaped dive watch is powered by an automatic Seiko NH36 movement, has a stainless steel case, sapphire crystal, and a water resistance level of 300M. The Ref.102118 is paired with a tan 22MM leather strap that compliments the rugged look of this timepiece. With it's premium materials, desirable automatic movement and an attractive price - the Kingsbury Dark Water 300 will be a great addition to your collection.

 

To ensure the both a luxurious and durable finish, the casing of the Dark Water 300 is cast from 316L stainless steel. The 43mm case has a brushed satin finish which compliments the more shiny areas of the watch handsomely. With a total height of 13mm, it feels and looks great on the wrist.

The bezel of the Dark Water is anything but typical. The 12-sided, unidirectional bezel comes with a ceramic insert which provides incredible resistance against scratches and scuffs. The rim of the bezel has been finished with a high polish shine, which looks great against the brushed case.

A ceramic bezel insures a long-lasting pristine appearance, thanks not only to the visual quality of ceramic, but also its unsurpassing durability. Each bezel has engraved and painted markings. 

Protecting the face of the watch, you'll find a thick piece of ultra scratch-resistant Sapphire glass. The crown, which has been signed with the Kingsbury 'K', screws down for ultimate protection against leaks. The combination of the sapphire glass, screw-down crown and stainless steel case lets the Dark Water 300 boast an impressive water resistance of 30ATM / 300M / 1000FT. 

 

The distinctive dial of the Dark Water 300 is what really sets it apart. The first thing you'll notice is the beautiful wave pattern that's been etched out in the center of dial. The hour markers, like on any good dive watch, are bold and sport luminous material that glows in low light conditions (when charged). The 12 o'clock position gets a double baton marking to help you easily identify the time, when working or playing in the dark. 

On the outer rim of the dial you'll find printed numerical markings that make reading the time even easier. For the minute and hour hands, we've chosen a set that are bold, thick and taper into a point, while the second hand resembles an archer's arrow. At the 3 o'clock position is a the calendar window, with a metallic border, that shows both the day as well as the date. With all the design features, you'll feel a strong sensation of quality and precision each time you look down to check the time. 

 

No dive style watch would be complete without some sort of luminous features and the Dark Water 300 is no exception. For our design, we chose to add SuperLuminova elements which appear white under normal and glows during low light conditions (when charged).

The striking luminescent hands make it easy to tell time even in the dark. To further aide in reading the time in the dark, we've added SuperLuminova to the hour markings. This feature is not only functional, but gives the watch a unique glowing design.

 

The Ref.102118 comes equipped with a tan rally-style leather strap, which pairs well with Dark Water 300. It has been constructed from genuine leather and features a multi-hole design. The leather strap uses a stainless steel buckle with a polished finish. At a width of 22mm throughout, this strap adds a more refined look to the diver. 


The caseback on the Dark Water is constructed from 316L stainless steel and has a screw-down design allowing for the tightest fit and best protection against water. Each caseback has been engraved with the make and model indicator of the timepiece. Featured prominently in the center of the caseback is the a sea creature's tentacle holding a trident, the mark of the Dark Water 300.
