Classic Military Watch Inspired Perfection & The Best Microbrand Automatic Diver: NTH Näcken Review

Published on Jan 09, 2018

Today I review a watch I bought last year on a whim. After borrowing one from my good friend and industry legend John Kiel, I was instantly hooked. As I am sure a lot of my viewers know, I have owned countless Tudor, Omega and Rolex dive watches over the years, so when I was introduced to the NTH Näcken line, I instantly understood this was no ordinary homage, but a tribute to an entire era of classic military dive watches. With a big crown of a 1954 Rolex Submariner, the dial of a Marine Nationale Tudor Submariner 9411 or 9014, and the case like the previously reviewed 60s Omega Seamaster 300 166.0324, it has been tastefully brought bang up to date with modern materials and a quality that secures its dominance as one of, if not the best micro brand, military inspired, automatic 300m dive watches. In addition, its modest price of just over $600 can’t be beat. So, today I dive in (forgive the pun!) and take a look with a full review, including what I like and don’t about this super fun watch that set the record on its release of being the thinest 300m microbrand diver.
