Off the Cuff: SeaPro Mariner Issue Tropic-style Straps

For dive watch enthusiasts, few things elicit the sensation of summer like a Tropic-style strap. Since their introduction in the late 1950s, these iconic dive bands have captured the essence of water-side freedom. Their basket-weave texture and spine-like edging are instantly recognizable and can be found on all manner of watches from budget-friendly Casio Duros to high-end Rolex Submariners.

Off the Cuff: Whitby Avro Pilot

The Avro Pilot is available in three colourways: Black, Navy, and Grey. Each iteration is limited to 105 pieces, in honour of the aircraft’s designation series. Like the Arrow, the Avro is a Flieger-styled pilot’s watch with a 43mm titanium case and oversized crown. It also employs AR-coated sapphire crystal, but rather than a solid etched caseback, the Avro has a sapphire exhibition glass.
