Dive watches are the go-to for many watch collectors. They outstrip the standard “tool watch” moniker with, usually, enhanced specs, such as better water resistance. As a result, dive watches are usually aimed at those professionals for whom they are designed. You know, divers. These days, this results in an instantly recognizable aesthetic that is often “function over form.” That said, dive watches were typically smaller and more reserved 50–60 years ago.

Alright, back to the watches. While the Freak continues to be the most talked about model from the brand, it’s nice to see it throwing its weight behind something different for a change. As compared with Ulysse Nardin’s freakier creations, as functional divers, this duo’s more legibility-forward approach has the potential to appeal to Freak-skeptics out there.

Instead of trying to outperform the 18.01 with a brute-force approach, Ming focused on…

The other big development on the dial front is that these are the first Serica field watches to not feature numerals of any kind. While purists might point out that this kind of defeats the purpose of a traditional field watch, it’s important to remember that Serica is not really in the business of making watches that strictly adhere to any particular watchmaking tradition. They have always borrowed bits and pieces of historic design tropes, and adapted them into a…
