Neminus Spaceman - Mars Traveler - Swiss Made Limited Edition
Exclusively at The Microbrand Store™, this space themed, Swiss Made automatic dive watch was produced in a small numbered limited edition size of only 99 timepieces, and we've purchased all of the remaining stock from Neminus after their successful Kickstarter campaign in 2018. The quantities you see here are all we have remaining in stock, and are a last opportunity before we close the door on this model.
In addition to the Neminus Spaceman Mars Traveler, we also obtained all of Neminus' remaining Neminus Spaceman Earth Dweller timepieces too, a slightly different model with a silver colored case and bezel. Both models come in a presentation box, with 3 different straps, a convenient watch travel roll, and our microfiber cleaning cloth.
Why We Love This Watch
With it's stunning radiating starburst, space exploration theme (check out the case back!) prominent 3D printed contoured image of Mars, and titanium coloring, not to mention the sawtooth design on the bezel, this 44mm dive watch is quite the looker, but it's also an extremely robust tool watch with some great pro diver features you don't often find in watches in this price range such as:
- Much better than PVD, a Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) finish on the case and bezel, which with the hardness of a diamond, provides a great scratch protection and wear resistant finish.
- Complementing the DLC finish, a thick 5mm domed sapphire crystal over the dial, also providing the best scratch protection available as you'd need something like a diamond to scratch the lens. Unlike many other dive watches, this is a thicker lens, providing more impact security, and also unlike most other dive watches, there are no less than four layers of anti-reflective coating on the lens.
- Sapphire crystal on the unique case back design too. No corners were cut here. Many watches with sapphire crystal on the front of the watch feature mineral glass instead on the back.
- A 300 meter water rating that should more than satisfy the most adventurous of amateur divers.
- A helium escape valve for pro divers spending a long time in a high pressure environment.
- Swiss Super-LumiNova X1 grade lume, the most expensive of the three grades available, offering a performance increase of up to 60% after two hours compared to the typical standard grade of Swiss Super-LumiNova.
- A premium ISO certified rubber dive strap. This is also affixed to the watch case via screwed pins, a more robust and safer option than the more typical spring bars. This timepiece also comes with an additional NATO strap and shark mesh bracelet. All three are very practical choices for an adventurous lifestyle.
- The quality assurance that comes from a Swiss Made timepiece with a reliable Swiss mechanical automatic movement. No batteries required. Neminus' founders went above and beyond the steps normally taken by a microbrand and personally supervised the production and testing of these watches in Switzerland.
