Here we have a 2018 Halios Seaforth II Abyss Blue Automatic with a 40mm stainless steel case that curves over your wrist with thick tapered flat-ended lugs, a lug-to-lug length of 46.5mm and a case thickness of 12mm giving the watch an impressive wrist presence. Polished chamfered edges and brushed surfaces transition with crisp edges, on the right side, is a signed screw-down crown that has deep knurling for extra grip protected by crown guards. A rotating unidirectional bezel protected by a blue sapphire 60-minute insert, giving it the appearance of the bakelite bezels of the past that holds a double domed vintage-style sapphire crystal above a Blue dial, an outer minute track has applied baton indexes infilled with Super-LumiNova BGW9 marking the hours, and at 6 o’clock a date window. Baton hands are tipped with Super-LumiNova BGW9 and complemented by a sweeping second hand, at 12 o'clock we have the Halios motif with Seaforth printed underneath. On the reverse, a screw-down case back, inside an automatic ETA 2824-2, 25 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, this workhorse movement has hand winding and hacking seconds for your convenience. The watch comes paired with its 20mm rubber strap and two 20mm vintage-style Halios straps, and the watch comes with its Halios presentation box and paperwork.
Halios is a brand that offers incredible value for money and truly great designs, this Seaforth II is no exception with its "Abyss" blue dial which is incredibly dark and looks black in some lights and a deep vivid blue in others! This is one well worth checking out if you are in the market for something a little different that won't break the bank.
Jason Lim, a lifelong watch enthusiast, started Halios in 2009, inspired by small, water-ready, sports watches of the '60s. Their watches are manufactured in Asia and the final testing and quality control are carried out in Vancouver, BC Canada. The movements are sourced from either Japan or Switzerland depending on the model and availability. Halios has a long-standing online presence on a particular watch forum dedicated to the dive community and continues to build its reputation with hardcore enthusiasts and first-time watch buyers.
