For the globetrotters

Stamped, drilled and milled to perfection.
THE MOST COMFORTABLE TITANIUM BRACELET EVER.
We’ve designed the most comfortable bracelet available and meticulously crafted its components with the greatest attention to detail. While other bracelets are typically cut from steel rods and milled, every piece of the Hex-Link bracelet is individually stamped, drilled and milled to perfection by our craftsmen to bring you with maximum comfort.
Ready for your adventures through a thermocline or the international dateline
Reliable, robust, mechanical GMT movements have only been available at significantly higher price points until the introduction of the much anticipated TimeModule SII NH34 movement; we are finally making this complication accessible to adventurers traversing borders, boundaries and timezones by adding it to our bestselling Endeavour case and taking a giant stride forward with the debut of our new Hex-Link bracelet.
The Ascentus GMT is a rugged four-hander with the ability to track three time zones at once. The automatic movement sweeps the lollipop seconds hand over the grain-textured dials, perfectly colour-matched date wheels and crisp, applied baton markers, filled generously with Swiss Super-LumiNova®. With no detail overlooked, the 12, 6 and 9 markers have been designed to ensure precise time telling at every angle and depth. Whether you’re making your ascent to cruising altitude or to the water's surface, the lumed arrow-tipped hand works in concert with the unidirectional, 24H titanium bezel to ensure optimal legibility and timekeeping at a glance.
Unlike any other bracelet, we’ve designed the most comfortable titanium bracelet available and meticulously crafted its components with the greatest attention to detail. While stainless steel bracelets are typically cut from steel rods and milled, every piece of the Hex-Link bracelet is individually stamped and drilled before being milled to perfection by our craftsmen, and then given the RZE treatment with a coating of UltraHex™. This process allows for the bracelet to move freely and conform to your wrist beautifully, making it the lightest, most comfortable bracelet ever.
ASCENTUS GMT White Dial
This is a flat-out great watch that has lived on my wrist since it arrived. I’m surprised at how different a titanium watch feels – it’s definitely robust, but sometimes I forget I'm wearing a watch. The bracelet is comfortable and hugs my wrist. It also balances well and stays where I want it instead of tending to rotate like some of my other watches. In spite of wearing it almost all the time, even in the shop and while working outdoors, there are no scratches on the case or bracelet. The only exception is the case back, which seems to have a few scuffs from the clasp. I have the white dial version, which is drop dead gorgeous and highly legible during the day. I only have two complaints. The lumed dial is so bright that, after a few minutes, it completely overwhelms the lume on the hands. I really do use the GMT function and I find it comforting to be able to quickly read local and home time in the middle of the night when I’m stuck in an unfamiliar hotel room. Sadly, that just doesn’t work. I would prefer an unlumed dial. The second minor complaint is that the outside links on the bracelet feel a bit sharp – a little bevel would nice. Overall, this is an amazing watch at a great price. Ordering was easy and shipping was fast. My version runs very well (single digit seconds per day), feels great on the wrist, and looks amazing. If you put out a version with a true GMT movement, I’d buy another one! Probably with a black dial, though…
Great overall watch
Super comfortable bracelet. Watch looks stunning. What more do you need.
