Co-founded by Travis Tan and his wife Vivian Ko, HVD is a Singapore based watch brand. Recently, it has launched a Kickstarter Campaign for promoting the brand’s debut watch collection, the SpectreDiver.
Inspired by the designs of vintage tool watches, this versatile timepiece houses a hand-wound movement. Featuring a classic stainless steel case with bubble-dome plexiglass crystal and a vintage scratched dial, the SpectreDiver pays tribute to the versatility and durability of the diving watches manufactured during the 1950s and 1960s.
The SpectreDiver features a vintage 40mm case. Each vintage scratched dial is individually hand-embellished, so no two dials are ever the same.
Its boat-shaped hour and minute hands as well as the 12 applied hour-markers are treated with Swiss Super-Luminova for ensuring visibility of the dial indications.
The 2.5 mm thick domed plexiglass is reminiscent of the crystals of vintage timepieces. The movement beating inside each timepiece is the Swiss-made hand wound calibre SW210-1. Beats at 28,800 vph, this 19-jewel mechanical manual winding engine provides a power reserve of 42 hours.
Water resistant to 200 meters, the watch is equipped with a unidirectional rotating diving bezel featuring a triangle 0/60 marker with lumed dot. The watch boasts alternative brushed and polished finishing on the case.
The HVD SpectreDiver watch is available in three colorways: Emerald, Onyx, and Moonstone.
Presently, for the backers of its Kickstarter online fund raising project, HVD is offering a special discount price starting from $399. The campaign was launched on July 5th, 2021 for two weeks. In future, the retail price will be $579.
