Spinnaker Bradner 42m Vintage-Style Automatic Sport Watch with a Luminous Bezel #SP-5062-01

The Bradner timepiece is a vintage diver, developed with a compressor style case with a uni-directional turning bezel. Most notably the inner-turning bezel is a custom molded ring with five minute markers positioned at a straight horizontal, parallel to the dial for easy viewing. A liberal application of Swiss Super-LumiNova on the ring gives the elapsed time measurement great visibility in lower light conditions. The main dial also holds an applied minute marker ring and a square-shaped index that matches the baton-shaped hands. All of which have also been layered with Swiss Super-LumiNova material.

All of this sits under a curved edge and a slightly domed sapphire lens affixed to the 42mm diameter marine-grade stainless steel case which has been precisely carved and polished. Powering the Bradner is a workhorse NH35 (Seiko) 24 Jewel Automatic Self-winding hacking movement with 41 hours of power reserve that is visible through the exhibition see-through case back.

The two crowns sit at the 2 o’clock and 4 o’clock positions, operating time adjustment and bezel setting respectively. The lugs are proportioned appropriately and sloped down to create a snug fit over the wrist as it sits attached by a genuine leather, water-proofed treated hand-stitched leather strap.

    Amazing Retro, Automatic Diver

    Posted by Gabriel Cruz-Mattei on Apr 4th 2021

    Almost bought this off Amazon, but decided to support a local watch shop for this purchase and I’m very happy I did! The packaging from Long Island Watch was fantastic to protect this gorgeous Spinnaker. The Spinnaker packaging for the watch itself was also superb. Overall impressions when I opened the box, just wow. Photos do not do this watch justice, because the case and bezel is superbly made and the retro style dial is really an eye-catcher. The movement works great, and I love the exhibition window on the caseback showing it off. The band was the biggest surprise; thicker than other watches I have but extremely high quality and durable. For such a thick case though, it is extremely light and comfortable on the wrist. I will be purchasing more watches from Long Island Watch in the future, especially with their great selection of micro-brands and their own in-house watches!

    A very cool nostalgic style diver

    The Bradner has one of the loveliest crystals on any watch I have seen. It is a big semi domed,AR coated Sapphire which houses its clear bezel. A two o'clock crown controls its bi-directional movement and the 4o'clock screw-down crown sets the date and time with hacking. The lume on this watch is terrific and the glass in the screw down case back reveals the quality Seiko heartbeat. The curved lugs and lovely leather strap make the watch almost disappear on my wrist. I really like the entire package that encompasses the Spinnaker Bradner.

    My boyfriend was so excited and surprised when he got his new vintage watch! Honestly, the pictures didn’t do it justice. I was surprised at the details, the workmanship and quality that went into this watch. Thank you so much for making our Christmas extra special!
