Spinnaker Watches has collaborated with the Paris-based watch customiser Seconde/Seconde, to create an exclusive and unique Halloween limited-edition version of Spinnaker’s iconic Fleuss dive watch, so as to capture the fun of Halloween which seems to grow in popularity every year.
Bringing together both Spinnaker’s watchmaking experience and Seconde/Seconde’s unorthodox approach, this venture has been created by Romaric’s passion for vintage watches, that has transformed timepieces into artistic expressions.
For those of you unfamiliar with Seconde/Seconde, it is masterminded by the visionary Romaric André, a Parisian luminary, and a name that thrives on pushing horological boundaries.
The timepiece’s dial displays “50 Phantoms”, which pay homage to a renowned and historical dive-watch design, showcasing 50 custom-moulded ghosts on the dial in order to create a mesmerising visual experience. Each one of the 50 phantoms are generously coated with Swiss Super-Lumi Nova to give an ethereal glow.
The stainless-steel case, which is 43mm in diameter and 12mm thick, houses a unidirectional turning bezel with the sapphire lens providing a crystal-clear view of the striking multi-layered dial, and is equipped with a NH38 Japanese automatic movement, giving both precision and reliability. It is water resistant to 500 feet.
The watch comes with a genuine 22mm wide leather strap as well as an additional rubber strap to give the wearer both comfort and versatility for any occasion, while the caseback is a canvas of its own, adorned with a single ghost giving you a view into the watch’s inner workings, and adding an extra layer of intrigue.
The Fleuss Automatic Seconde Seconde is available in the two enigmatic variants of Phantom Black and Phantom Grey to embraces horology with a touch of mystery.
Only 670 pieces have been produced by Spinnaker Watches of this special Fleuss Automatic Seconde Seconde Limited Edition, which will be available from 27th October 2023 via Spinnaker-watches.com, priced at £445.
