MEW HYDROFORCE X1

MEW Tactical watches presents Hydroforce X1, a massive yet minimalistic designed sports watch capable to withstand extremes conditions. Dressed in a 316L stainless steel combination resilient case, the Hydroforce X1 incorporates two innovative, world premier techniques:  Integrated Lug Case-back System (ILCS) and Independent Double Gasket System (IDGS).

The Hydroforce X1 in-house designed, inspired from wide range of icons as, Apollo Lunar Module, IJT.22 calibrated 1800’s revolver, The Conshelf (underwater house of Captain Cousteau) 1970’s TV cult series U.F.O. the “UFO Intruder Detector”,STEN submachine gun (legendary British handy submachine gun, which helped the allies to win WWII), F117 Stealth fighter jet, universal sergeant sign, the empty sea urchin shell.
The appearance of Hydroforce X1 mostly futuristic, but keeping the minimalistic structure of a classical dress watch. The back lid and lugs are innovatively placed same platform, which makes the case body more clear and direct fluent lines. Just to give final touch, the curved case body (reminding sea creatures) fluted like a revolver chamber barrel (makes the look like rising spaceship). The grey textured sandblast dial, in drop shaped index and a white metallic 3D chapter seconds index, sergeant sign at 12H position makes X1 authentic timepiece.
The Hydroforce X1 is powered with a modified Miyota 8215 Automatic caliber manufactured in Japan. Measuring 42x50 mm diameter and 12.2 mm thickness, its case can withstand atmospheric pressures up to 20 ATM.
MEW X series will be supplied both in retailer channels and direct orders. Web pre-orders price starts from USD473 (pre-order introduction price valid through end of October 2016).
