Baltic Aquascaphe Review

Post by Racer-X » December 4th 2018, 10:39pm

"Not long ago, boutique watch brands competing in the affordable price spectrum could easily follow a basic formula for success. Put together some kind of Submariner homage without calling it an homage, stuff it with a cheap movement, and profit. Without much in the way of the watch media outlets we indulge in today, consumers would typically take a risk in the hopes of scoring a cool watch at an affordable price. But everyone got smarter, more informed, and more discriminating when voting with their wallets. As a result, the brands that stand out today really stand out and Baltic made a significant mark with the debut of their Bicompax 001 in 2017. Today, we’re looking at their latest release, the Baltic Aquascaphe, which is already projected to drive the brand into new territory."

I went to their website and they seem to be sold out; at least everything I looked at was sold.
I just sent them a message about that watch and availability.

Hands-on review

"After successfully funding its first collection via Kickstarter, Baltic Watches has managed to stand the test of time and to survive this inaugural series of watches. Even better, the small concept became a brand and has started to expand its collection – and there are many more watches to come (but we can’t tell you yet…) Today, we look at what Etienne Malec has created as his second model, a great-looking, still accessible, no-nonsense tool dive watch with vintage inspiration; the Baltic Aquascaphe Diver."

I like the way it looks.

However, in that price territory, Baltic can go fuck themselves. When the Dan Henry 1970 was available (well, some of the 44mm still are), it was a far better deal than this could ever possibly be.

100 euro for a bracelet... Hmmm...hmmm...hmmmm...?

There, for $260, you get a strap and a beads of rice bracelet alright. Again, Baltic can go fuck themselves.

As for dive watches... When we're looking at the same range, the colonial majority here will likely be able to get - via some Massdrop or other discount-happy shop - a deal on the Certina DS Action Diver in titanium with the ETA Powermatic 80. Oh, and it features a microadjustment on the bracelet, much in the style of the current Omega divers, or Rolex's Glidelock. The lume on these doesn't suck cock, and the watch is compliant with the ISO norm for dive watches.

So, Baltic loses out in the dive watch and dive-style watch territories alike. Well, again, Baltic can go fuck themselves.

So, if I'm reading your post correctly, Mr. Bloke, you are saying that Baltic can go fuck themselves??
I find tv watches to be like the guys who raise their truck you need a fricken ladder to get in. It’s a attempt to look cool... that’s all.

Aye, that’d be exactly what I am saying there. Baltic can go fuck themselves.
