TURRET 300M DIVE WATCH
In November 2020, we, MMI Watches Singapore launched our Turret 300M Version 1 on Kickstarter, Its was successfully funded and sold out during our website pre-order. Now, we are proud to announce launch of our 4th model, Turret 300M Version 2.
There will be only 100 pieces of Turret 300M V2 made. Esitmated Delivery End of May - Early June 2022.
Turret 300M, dive watch design concept is inspired by an “Iron-Clad” naval warship, U.S.S Monitor. Its warship technology was state of the art during its era, which transformed and revolutionised naval warfare till today.
U.S.S Monitor new design iron-hulled ship structure was totally different from the early “Iron-Clad ship at that time.
It neither had a masts nor Port/Starboard (Left/Right) line of cannons.
A 360-degree rotatable large cylindrical turret with 2 internal cannons was mounted in the middle of the ship. While other warships needed to maneuver to its target in line with its onboard port/starboard cannons to fire. U.S.S Monitor could instantly rotate its turret and fire instantly at its enemy.
Most traditional dive watches have its rotating bezel mounted flat onto the watch case. For Turret 300M, we mount the rotating bezel slightly beneath into the watch case, like the U.S.S Monitor Turret.
With this design, the rotating bezel is protected by the 4 angular side of the watch case and at the same time the rotating bezel is prevented from accidentally move or rotate. This is especially important when you use the bezel as timing instrument for your dive.
DATE DISPLAY COMPLICATION:
For those who got bored of conventional date display on their watch, have a look at our “Date Display Complication” design. This design made it both functional and more aesthetically pleasing.
The "new" date display indicator legibility is 80% better compare to previous Version 1. These are achieve due to V2 had a bigger date indicator and now used a "special paint" (reflect light in day) combined with lume pigment (glow in the dark).
For Version 2, the dial's indices were changed to a longer version and moved its to outer most of the dial. Meaning more lume surface area....................
Swiss Super-LumiNova® :
We understand the importance of the dials and markers on the watch face and bezel. They have to be legible under water and in low light conditions.
Full night legibility of our watches is achieved by using the best phosphorescent pigment on the market, Swiss Super-LumiNova®.
We've upgraded our watch from Super-LumiNova Grade X1 C1 to a brighter Super-LumiNova Grade X1 C3
SEIKO (SII) NH35A MOVEMENT:
Popular movement used in many dive watches. SEIKO (SII) NH35A is well known for its reliability. It can outlast Swiss movement with minimum or no servicing.
Update:cRetro Blue will come with out dial lume.
ION PLATED (IP) STAINLESS STEEL BEZEL INSERT:
An experimental project by MMI Watches. We tried using a Ion Plated (IP)Stainless Steel Bezel Insert on Turret rather than a traditional Anodised Aluminium Bezel Insert.
The reason for using Stainless steel, as it is much stronger than Aluminium and less brittle than Sapphire and Ceramic.
Ion Plating (IP) is physical vapour deposition process, where surface required to be plated is bombarded forming a Titanium Nitride layer.
Ion plated surfaces are five to eight times more durable and resistance to corrosion and wear. When Ion Plating is combined with Stainless Steel, the result is a heavy-duty item that withstand the rigors of daily use.
