Having featured Spinnaker on our Watch Spotlight before, it’s no surprise that they are making another entry on our list with their latest limited edition release, the Hull Commander Automatic (Lapis Lazuli). With its unique dial, this exciting piece catches the eye at a glance, feels great on the wrist, and makes us wonder just how much better can these Spinnaker watches get.
With a beautiful blue Lapis Lazuli dial, this dive piece stands out from the get-go. Its earthy look that is in harmony with the silhouette of the watch feels well executed and presents nicely on the wrist with its robust appearance. The stunning 42mm case of the watch is embraced by a stainless steel bracelet and is accompanied by an alternative rubber strap if you prefer softer wear.
The watch carries a Seiko NH35 Automatic movement with 3 hands date. If you didn’t know, it’s a well-respected movement with 24 jewels, 21,600 vibrations per hour, and a power reserve of 41 hours. Many known brands such as Seiko, Vostok, D1 Milano and others have embraced this reliable movement that is budget-friendly and provides durability and reassurance for the wearer.
With only 250 pieces made, the individuality this piece brings makes spending £520 seem like a no-brainer. Once again, Spinnaker has delivered a dive watch that is thrilling not just for the wearer but for the lovers of microbrands. It’s entertaining, mighty, and offers outstanding value at its price.
