220 Watch Company Diver Bill

Post by koimaster » July 9th 2020, 9:06pm



t’s been a while since we reviewed a bronze diver’s watch. That is why this new watch from the 220 Watch Company, the Diver Bill, caught our eye.
220 Watch Company Diver Bill Review

Jared Steadman, the founder of the 220 watch company, tells me that idea for the Diver Bill started very soon after the idea for his original watch: The William Walker. The main aim of the William Walker was to faithfully represent the dive helmet as closely as possible. That meant that any bezel markings were out. Jared wanted to stick with William Walker’s story, and so the second watch takes his nickname: Diver Bill.

I really like the name and the backstory of why it's named the Diver Bill. That's pretty original, right there.

The watch? I wouldn't even wear it as a desk diver.

I like the backstory, too, and they popped a good movement in it- and the display back on a bronze case is a nice touch since they are only steel anyway.. The dials ok- but the case details are too much for me- the edge of the bezel bugs me... It seems like something's missing,... ahh, that's it; all that baby needs is a couple of hinged hold down bolt bezel locks, ala a porthole.

This one ain't for me but as far as KS projects go, these guys look to be at least on the right track- perhaps their third will have more universal appeal.

I was hoping for a Fire Marshall Bill watch. Think of the possibilities.
That would be a hot one
