British watch company Alkin has just released the Model Three diver, a clever and colorful nod to tool watches of yore. Created by furniture designer Charlie Fowler, these watches embody a whimsical 1970s design coupled with some solid parts and materials.

From the release:

With the Model Three alkin has once again pursued an understated, design-led approach that builds on the legacy of previous models. For this model, Charlie had initially started out with the sole intention of developing a dive watch with an external rotation bezel, but during the design and development journey it evolved into two distinct watches in one shared case; the Diver and the Dual Time.

The watches range from $462 to $524. The cases are 40mm and are 48.5mm lug to lug. Charlie uses a sapphire crystal, Super-LumiNova lume, and the Miyota 9039 Automatic movement. The dual time model with so-called stadium hands features a dual-timezone bezel.

These watches are available for pre-order now on the Alkin website.
