Diving back in time with the Halios Seaforth

April 18, 2017 . by Patrick Kansa

I do not remember when I first came across Canadian brand Halios, but I do remember being struck by their Tropik line of watches.  They’ve had a few different iterations, but the one that has stuck with me was the white-dialed version.  They’re just-announced watches – the Halios Seaforth – seem like they might be…
