Here we have a 2023 Isotope HydriumX "The Judge" Limited to 100 pieces inspired by the distinctive black, white and red colours worn by Judges for centuries. The 40mm micro-blasted stainless steel case curves over your wrist with stubby flat-ended lugs, and a lug-to-lug length of 47.5mm and a case thickness of 14.5mm ensure a comfortable fit. On the right side is a deeply knurled screw-down crown. A 120-click unidirectional bezel has deep knurling for extra grip and a red sterile insert with the Isotope pip at 12 o’clock holding a double domed sapphire crystal above a black dial. White Super-LumiNova Arabic numerals mark the hours surrounding an inner minute track and Isotope Lacrima hands are outlined in white and infilled in red with the fun rotating Isotope Lacrima mark on top. At 12 o’clock we have the Isotope motif and at 6 o’clock HydriumX, “Automatic 1000ft” completes this Judge-inspired highly visible tool watch. On the reverse a screw-down exhibition case back showcasing an automatic Landeron Cal. 24, 25 jewels, beating at 28,800 beats per hour, the movement is expertly decorated Côtes de Genève and Perlage. The watch comes fitted on a 22mm quick-release black FKM tropic-style strap with a micro-blasted stainless steel signed buckle and the watch comes with its Isotope presentation box and paperwork.
I have been fortunate enough to have sold a few different Isotope models over the years now and they have all been fantastic, on and off the wrist! The designs are definitely unique and stand out in this world of copy and paste watches, Isotope has built their own design language and models like this "The Judge" take that a step further, a lot of fun and limited to 100 pieces its well worth picking up if you like it!
José and Joana Miranda founded Isotope in 2016 based in England their brand name is derived from a scientific name for radioelements with unique half-lives found by radiochemist Frederick Soddy its meaning is "coming from the same place" in Greek. The word Isotope was suggested by a close friend of his wife Dr. Margaret Todd at a dinner party in Glasgow in 1913, and was first published in "Nature" in 1913, he was later in 1921 awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry. They produce uniquely designed timepieces using traditional techniques such as enamelling and thermal heating metals.
