Bathys sent out their Christmas letter the other day, and included a sneak peek at their newest project, the Bomb Timer. Designed as an homage to the timers used in WWII era bombers, the Bomb Timer is quite the timepiece.
Bathys has been working on this design for about 3 years, and it shows. You can definitely tell the influence of the original design, and the simplicity of the face really gives it an elegant feel, despite being utilitarian. The watch is still in development, but Bathys is expeciing it to be released sometime in 2010. It’s going to be made from stainless steel, expected to be water-resistant down to 100 meters, and uses an ETA 6497 movement. Price is estimated to be around $1800-2000. I want one.
Thank you for reading this WristWatchReview post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.
WristWatchReview is one of the few remaining truly independent watch news outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent watch sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis. We don't play the games the other sites play and we've paid for it when it comes to ad revenue.
We would love for you to support us on Patreon and every little bit helps. Thank you.
