THE PILBARA SERIES WATCHES
The limited edition Pilbara Series; a rugged and durable dive style watch, no longer does utility mean discomfort- well finished, high spec, comfortable, a touch of luxury in a true adventure watch.
All Stainless Steel Case
316 marine grade stainless steel case construction.
Blasted and IP matte black bezel insert.
Brushed case with polished chamfer highlights on lugs.
Brushed 316SS bracelet with milled clasp and quick release spring bars.
Swiss Super Lumi-Nova BGW9 (blue) applied to hour, minute and tip of seconds hand, bezel insert and crown. Long and consistent glow.
Limited Edition Rock Dial
This special model features a compressed rock material, intended to be representative of the iron rich earth found all through the North West of Western Australia.
This variant includes text that is printed on the underside of the sapphire, rather than on the dial itself, resulting in crisp text print and creating a unique 'floating' effect where the watch hands can pass underneath the text, and in certain lighting the text can cast a light shadow across the dial - an interesting, and sometimes captivating, effect.

A Tribute to Western Australia's Rugged Beauty
The Pilbara Series Dive Watches pay homage to the breathtaking landscapes of Western Australia, particularly the iron-rich earth
of the North West region. The limited edition rock dial captures the essence of this rugged terrain, showcasing a compressed rock material. This unique feature not only offers an aesthetic connection to the region, but also serves as a conversation starter.
Innovative Dial Design
The limited edition Rock dial variant of the Pilbara Series introduces a creative twist to traditional watchmaking. The text on the underside of the sapphire crystal, rather than on the dial itself, creates a distinctive 'floating' effect. This innovative design allows the watch hands to pass underneath the text, resulting in a visually captivating interplay of light and shadow across the dial, particularly in certain lighting conditions.
1. What sets the Pilbara Series Dive Watches apart from other adventure watches?
The Pilbara Series Dive Watches stand out due to their impeccable combination of rugged durability and luxury. Crafted from 316 marine-grade stainless steel, they ensure longevity without compromising on style.
2. Can you elaborate on the unique 'floating' effect of the Rock dial text?
Certainly! The dial's text is positioned on the underside of the sapphire crystal, creating an innovative illusion of 'floating.' This effect adds depth and intrigue to the watch's appearance, especially when the hands move beneath the text, casting intriguing shadows. The rock dial was not suitable for printing, so we had to come up with a way to add the text without compromising the dial - and the printed sapphire was the solution.
3. How does the Swiss Super Lumi-Nova technology enhance visibility?
The Swiss Super Lumi-Nova BGW9 (blue) technology provides exceptional luminescence to the watch's hands, bezel insert, and crown. This ensures a consistent and bright glow, facilitating easy readability even in low-light conditions.
Elevate your exploration game with the limited edition Pilbara Series Dive Watches. Designed to withstand the rigours of your adventures while offering unparalleled style, these watches define what it means to be a true adventure companion.
