Iconic military timepieces refashioned for the modern gentleman. Practical luxury defined.

Who says rugged and refined are mutually exclusive?

Hemel has been boots on ground with the HM (Hemel Military) series and wings in air with the HF (Hemel Flight) series, so it’s not too hard to figure out where we’re going next. The HD (Hemel Diver) series takes the brand into the sea; 300 meters deep to be exact. The 42mm watch case sports a rounded sapphire bezel insert with C3 lume and domed sapphire crystal with a subtle orange hued anti-reflective coating as opposed to the usual blue. Orange is central to the Hemel identity and this cue is repeated in the distinctive hour hand. Also illuminated with C3 lume are the striking markers and a military stenciled 12 at the top of the sandwiched dial. The case back has a more ornate design than we’ve done before and is executed in relief sculpture fashion. There is knurled edging on the screw down crown with a similar pattern found on the edging of the 120 click rotating bezel. A solid steel link bracelet with deployment clasp and solid, fitted end links complete the design.

Gentlemen: it’s time to upgrade your wrist.
