After the success of the Dark Surge 300M, Marnaut launched its newest model the Seascape 200M on Kickstarter. It has much of the Marnaut DNA with its distinct dial markings, as well as the best-in-class Automatic movement. The unmistakable dial, inspired by one of the longest living creatures on earth, with its symmetrically raised indexes is a tribute to Marnaut’s beginnings and core design philosophy. Read all the details in this blog post!
The New Models
The Seascape 200M by MARNAUT will come in three variations: The MSS200R (Reverse) with reversed colors on the inner bezel, the MSS200C (Classic) with a black dial and -bezel and the MSS200B (Black) with a PVD coated black case, -dial and -bezel.
The dial is inspired by one of the longest living creatures on Earth; The sea urchin. Everybody has probably seen a shell of a sea urchin in his last summer vacations already, or collected them as a child on the beach. Its unmistakable shell surface inspired the texture and symmetry of the enamel-finished dial with its raised and indexes.
The 34 carefully pinned, circular metal indexes on the Seascape 200M’s dial gives it tremendous recognition value and an amazing lume presence. They need to be set very precisely, only millimeters apart, which makes the production process extremely complex. Such detail requires skilled and experienced watchmakers.
Super-LumiNova Luminous Mass
The luminous mass used on Marnaut watches is the Swiss made BGW9 C3, Super-LumiNova, the world’s most famous lume, widely used in watches of all price ranges. It is applied to all 34 metal indexes, the hands and the triangle marker on the inner bezel. The combination of the special dial design and the Super-LumiNova create a captivating, symmetrical and unmistakable lume, like no other watch on the market.
Case and Crystal
The Sapphire Crystal used on the Marnaut Seascape 200M is double domed and is scratch-proof. Furthermore it’s treated with with anti-reflective (AR) coating on the underside. The brushed stainless-steel Case features a screw-down casing and is gasket-fitted, to make sure that it’s water resistance up to 200 meters, which makes the Seascape a true dive watch. The case measures 40mm in diameter and the lug-width is 20mm, so almost all of our straps fit to the watch perfectly.
Super Compressor Styling with Internal Rotating Bezel
The Seascape 200M is the result of combining the famous Marnaut design language and character with a super compressor style diving watch. A compressor styled diver is recognized by it’s iconic twin crowns, one for setting the time and one for setting the inner bezel.
The Seascape 200M features a bezel, which is located inside the watch, operated by turning the top crown. Regular dive watches have a bezel on the outside of the watch, but this way it’s never protected of an accidental adjustment. When the top crown is screwed down, it’s impossible to accidentally adjust the bezel of the Seascape 200M, which makes this dive watch design one of the safest
The Automatic Movement
The Marnaut Seascape 200M is powered by the industry-leading hacking automatic Miyota 9015 movement from Japan. The 24-jewel movement beats at 28,800 bph, giving it a super smooth hand sweep. It features a 42-hour plus power reserve.
Tested for the dive
Marnaut watches are tested to the bone to ensure safety and durability. It’s taken down to 20ATM (200 meters) of pressure in special preassure-chambers, as well as in the real sea by the free-diver Vitomir Maricic in the open sea.
Each Marnaut timepiece comes with one rubber- and one Italian leather croc pattern strap. Depending on your situation or outfit, you ca switch between these two straps. Of course it suits to many WB original straps with a size of 20mm as well, so you can match it with almost every outfit you have.
