Inspired by watch shapes and designs of the 1970s, the Dumas represents a more muscular form in dive watch design. Taking its name from the famed diving pioneer Frédéric Dumas, the watch harkens to a capsule of dive watches that were designed explicitly for pure function and practicality in their role as pieces of diving instrumentation.
With a more muscular and bold silhouette, the watch leans on more interesting, industrial like forms which captured the imagination of watch designers in the 1970s for practical as well for aesthetic reasons. A strong octagonal watch chassis is topped with mineral crystal 120 click uni-directional turning bezel with luminous calibrations.
A precise, workhorse NH35 TMI Seiko automatic self-winding movement sits inside the Dumas, offering time and date read out with its inner mechanics visible via the exhibition caseback.
