Pilbara Rock - Second Release pre order
Pre order now open for Rock Dial Batch 2!
Inspired by the red earth of Western Australia's outback, the Pilbara dive watch is a tough, high spec, wristwatch designed in Australia.
Rugged enough for an Australian outback adventure, or diving Ningaloo, refined enough for any boardroom.
The limited edition Pilbara offers a high spec, subtle design, highly legible wristwatch with extra attention paid to case finishing and feel. The result is well proportioned comfortable watch that punches above its weight on all fronts - its time to spoil your wrist!
Red rock dial, made from special compressed rock material- each dial is unique. Inspired by the rocky outcrops throughout the Pilbara region, the color is representative of where the red dirt of the Pilbara mixes with the white sands of the Indian Ocean.
In this variant only the dial text is printed on underside of sapphire, rather than on the dial. This creates a 'floating' effect, where the watch hands can pass underneath the text, and in certain lighting can cast a light shadow across the dial - an interesting, and sometimes captivating, effect.
Pre orders are expected to ship at the end of October, 2023.
Note - batch 2 will have the Houtman logo in place of the Houtman dial text, and revised hand set.
