Press Release - New Aquatrident Watch: Jaws

Introducing the Jaws Bronze Watch from Aquatrident


Pe'ahi, famously known as "Jaws," is a renowned big wave surfing mecca off the north shore of Maui, Hawaii. With towering walls of water that can exceed 60 feet, it has earned a reputation as one of the most formidable and powerful surf breaks on the planet, demanding respect and skill from even the most seasoned big wave riders. 


Inspired by the raw power and unrelenting force of this legendary surf spot, our brand introduces the "Jaws" watch – a timepiece that embodies the same indomitable spirit and unwavering strength. Crafted with meticulous attention to detail, this watch is designed to withstand the most extreme conditions, just as the surfers who brave the colossal waves at Pe'ahi.


At the heart of the "Jaws" watch beats the reliable TMI NH35 automatic movement, encased within a robust 40mm CUSN8 bronze case that measures 11.75mm in thickness and boasts an impressive 20ATM (200m) water resistance. The 316L stainless steel bezel and sapphire crystal with AR coating offer superior durability and scratch resistance, ensuring this timepiece can withstand the rigors of any adventure.


The dial is illuminated by Swiss Super-LumiNova, providing excellent visibility in any lighting condition, while the 47mm lug-to-lug size and 20mm strap width contribute to a comfortable and secure fit on the wrist.


Complementing the rugged aesthetic, the "Jaws" watch comes equipped with two interchangeable straps – a durable FluoroRubber strap and a genuine leather strap, both secured by a sturdy 316L stainless steel tongue buckle. This versatility allows you to seamlessly transition from extreme outdoor pursuits to more refined settings, without compromising on style or functionality.


Just as the Pe'ahi break attracts the bravest and most skilled big wave surfers, the "Jaws" watch is a testament to our brand's commitment to excellence and a symbol of the indomitable spirit that drives us to create timepieces that stand apart from the ordinary. Whether you're conquering towering waves or scaling new heights in your personal endeavours, the "Jaws" watch is a powerful ally, reminding you that with unwavering determination and a relentless pursuit of perfection, even the most formidable challenges can be overcome.


Design:

The "Jaws" watch features a striking sandwich dial design that adds depth and dimensionality to its bold aesthetic. This intricate construction consists of two layers – an upper dial with cutouts for the hour markers and a lower dial underneath, creating a mesmerizing visual effect where the lume appears to float beneath the surface.


The "Jaws" watch is offered in two distinct dial variations, each embodying its own unique character while paying homage to the powerful essence of the legendary Pe'ahi surf break.


The first variant showcases a classic circular hour marker design, with precisely applied indexes that evoke a sense of timeless elegance. These markers are filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova, ensuring excellent legibility in low-light conditions, a crucial feature for those who venture into the depths of nature or the uncharted realms of exploration.


The second variation pays homage to the rich heritage of watchmaking with its Roman numeral hour markers. These timeless numerals add a touch of sophistication and vintage charm to the dial, offering a subtle contrast to the watch's rugged and adventurous spirit. Like the circular markers, the Roman numerals are generously filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova, ensuring optimal readability in any environment.


Both dial variations share a common design language, with the sandwich construction creating a captivating interplay of light and shadow. As the luminous material beneath the surface catches the light, it creates a striking visual depth, reminiscent of the powerful waves that crash against the cliffs of Pe'ahi.


Whether you opt for the classic circular hour markers or the timeless elegance of Roman numerals, the "Jaws" watch delivers a bold and distinctive style that pays homage to its namesake – a true embodiment of strength, resilience, and an unwavering spirit of adventure.


One of the most captivating aspects of the "Jaws" watch is its CUSN8 bronze case, which will develop a unique and ever-changing patina over time, a living tapestry that tells the story of the watch's journey, adding character and personality to this already striking timepiece.
