Azores - Absinthe
Azores - Absinthe
A different sort of diver.
The NTH Tropics were inspired by the compressor-case diving watches which proliferated from the late '50's to mid '70's - marvels of engineering which established an iconic design language. Like we did with the Subs, we wanted to recreate - and update - their simple, timeless elegance.
Each Tropics model shares the same dual-crown, cylindrical case with straight lugs, raised double-domed anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and a case-back stamped with a diving bell in high relief.
For a different sort of mission.
We gave the Tropics 20 ATM water resistance, a lumed internal bezel, faceted lugs, a combination brushed/polished case and an accurate, high-beat automatic movement. Then we kicked it up a notch with deeply-textured dials, applied indices a vintage-style, fully-articulated 5-link bracelet with double-locking diver's clasp, and threw in a classic, "tropik-style" rubber strap, just like the compressors of old.
The Tropics combine the capabilities of a diving watch with the more discreet profile of a modern dress watch, making it a good companion for the modern sporting gentleman.
