Eza Watches - Sealander

A couple of months back, Netherlands based watch brand Eza Watches launched a new classically designed timepiece, the Sealander. This classic diving watch can withstand water pressure up to 300 meters.
The Eza Sealander has a stainless steel case size of 41 mm and a ceramic uni-directional bezel. Aesthetically, the Eza Sealander preserves some of the designs from earlier Eza watches and other dive watches of 1950s.
The Sealander is Eza’s first watch after many years of silence. Eza brand had its origins in 1921 in Pforzheim. Now the brand is making a comeback with the Sealander, the first of many new automatic and waterproof wristwatches planned to launch by Eza watch brand’s new owners.
The Sealander houses an automatic movement, Miyota Caliber 9015, that is adjusted to six positions in EZA’s watchmaking facility in The Netherlands.
The timepiece will be assembled at Eza’s watch making facility in the Netherlands and adjusted to 6 positions for even more accuracy. The Sealander will retail at € 849,- incl. 21% VAT.
