Spinnaker Hull Meca Quartz Chronograph

Measuring 42mm across, the Hull Chronograph includes a recognizable pad case configuration created out of 316L treated steel. Inside that case is a time tested Seiko VK 73 Series Meca Quartz development, a type that offers exemplary chronograph usefulness and a major date work directly underneath 12:00 on the dial.

Speaking of the dial, it’s a sandwich development: up top is a finished, fumé surface with patterns that uncover a lower level covered in Super-LumiNova. The hands are brushed, which adds to the dimensionality and surface on the essence of the watch, and by and large the tasteful looks dynamic and current with a bit of retro-cool. There are three shading variations: Black, Dark Green, and Blue.

Additional specs incorporate a mineral precious stone covered in sapphire, a brushed tachymeter bezel, and a screw down crown and pushers. The watch comes combined with a cowhide strap.

Mecum is putting together the bartering, and they hope to bring an incredible chunk of change for it.
