Guess what's back, back again. H1's back, tell a friend.

8th February 2018

I have been planning for a long time to bring back the Hamtun H1, but didn't plan on doing it quite yet (we're in the middle of the Neon pre-order campaign. Buy a Neon!) Then I saw that someone else is selling a watch with the same case and using some of the same marketing materials. Coincidence? Doubt it. Anyway it's my design so if anyone is going to sell it, I am.

As a result, on Tuesday 13 February 2018 pre-orders for the H1 are opening! It's basically the same watch as I launched in 2016, with a few minor updates:

Specs:
  • 41mm titanium case (that was designed for the Hamtun H1 and "borrowed" by others)
  • Matte ceramic bezel
  • Genuine Swiss Super-LumiNova 
  • Titanium bracelet (22mm lug width)
  • NH35a automatic movement
  • Available in our original white or blue colourways, or in our new "ghost" option


So what has changed?

Not a whole lot. I'm working with my new manufacturer so the build quality is great. There has been an upgrade to the lume. I've changed the bracelet design slightly so it's easier to manage (pins instead of screws this time). I've slightly changed the blue colour as I found a nicer one. Just little things that people raised during the first run, rather than a complete re-design.

The biggest thing is a new colour option! I have replaced the "Stealth" version which people said they found a little *too* stealthy with a new "Ghost" option. Full lume white dial, black hour markers, black hour and minute hands, blue second hand. It looks awesome. See a 2D render of it at https://hamtun.co/products/h1-ghost​ or check out the full range that will be available at https://hamtun.co/collections/dive-watches.


When can I get it?

We'll be making your new H1 especially for you. I'm opening for pre-orders Tuesday 13 Feb at 4pm GMT (check local time) here on this website, with shipping scheduled for late July.

Thanks for another amazing year!

What a year 2018 has been at Hamtun. We launched 3 models and shipped 2 of them, with the other one due to ship in Spring 2019. By every possible metric the business has continued to grow. When I started planning the H1 in 2015 even my most ambitious plans didn't have the busi...
