Don't think of it as retro.
Even more than our other 40mm Subs, the Legends Series models pay tribute to some revered icons, tracing their heritage back to timepieces issued to military divers in the post-war period. Those quintessential tool watches have only gotten better-looking with age. We wanted to combine their classic, rugged style with modern capabilities.
Legends Series models share the same purpose-oriented, big-crown case and no-nonsense case back with minimal decoration. But we have added a thicker, anti-reflective box sapphire crystal, and an anodized aluminum bezel insert with raised lume pip, for an even more vintage feel.
Think of it as neo-classic.
Water resistance for the Legends Series Subs is 300 meters. The case features polished chamfers, downward-curved lugs for a wrist-hugging shape, and our signature lumed crown.
Each NTH Sub has its own personality, designed either to emulate the weathered good looks of a well-traveled vintage piece, or as a modern interpretation of what those vintage pieces might look like if they were still being produced today.
