You don’t see this kind of watch from a newer brand very often. Heavily inspired by the early dive watches of the 50s and 60s, the Méraud Bonaire Dive Watch features a handsome 39mm case size, Swiss automatic movement, domed sapphire crystal, 200 meters of water resistance, and thickness of only 12.5mm. With that price, you’re getting a lot of watch for the money.
The three period-accurate dial colors offered (onyx black, marine blue, and graphite grey) only add another layer of classic sophistication, making the Méraud Bonaire Dive Watch something like an instant classic. Wear it on leather, rubber, nylon, or steel bracelet, the Bonaire will look good on pretty much anything. If you’re in the market for a vintage-inspired diver, this is a strong contender. Its Kickstarter campaign has already surpassed its goals, and the Méraud Bonaire will be available in May 2019.
