Spinnaker Bradner 42m Vintage-Style Automatic Sport Watch with a Luminous Bezel #SP-5062-05

The Bradner timepiece is a vintage diver, developed with a compressor style case with a bi-directional turning bezel. While the watch has an unabashedly vintage aesthetic about it, it has been designed and manufactured to leverage the best of modern-day watchmaking.

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.

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. Beyond this, a liberal application of Swiss Super-LumiNova on the ring has been undertaken to give this elapsed time measurement greater 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.

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.

    More Than I Expected

    Posted by Jeff Meador on Dec 28th 2020

    Received my Spinnaker Bradner Automatic Sports watch and was blown away! This watch is beautiful. The blue dial is so vibrant and then you add the gold and yellow applied indexes and hour and minute hand. The upper crown is how you move the rotating bezel. Lower crown is signed. I love a thicker watch. It wears smaller than it's 42mm size but it comes off as very "beefy" with the thicker case size of 14mm. The watch has a Seiko NH35 movement with a 41 hour power reserve. It has a slightly domed sapphire crystal with the anti-reflective coating. It has an exhibition case back. The bezel is bi-directional and is one of the smoothest I have ever operated. Last but not least is the LUM! This watch "lights up like a Christmas tree" in the dark. One of the only complaints I have is that the LUM does NOT seem to last anywhere as long as some of my other dive watches. Overall I LOVE this watch and I am so glad I grabbed one! The watch is a very well made watch and is a pleasure to wear!

    This is one of the most attractive watches in my collection. Domed sapphire and an automatic movement for this price? What a deal...

    Great Retro Compressor

    Posted by James Speicher on Feb 21st 2020

    A great looking, comfortable, retro, compressor style watch. I'm pretty active and like sapphire the crystal, and the brushed case reduces appearance of scratches. The strap is sturdy, durable and while stiff at first, took the form of my wrist for a good fit. Can't go wrong buying from Island Watch, excellent customer service.
