Melbourne Portsea Heritage Automatic Watch with Blue Dial, Sapphire Crystal #PS.40.A.3HD.05

The Portsea collection represents Melbourne’s modern take on the classic 'Deck Watch' timepiece style, which is traditionally characterized by clean dials with arabic numerals enclosed by 'railroad' minute markers. Deck watches were popular among navy and merchant sailors in the early 20th century, particularly in WW1. They were originally made as pocket watches with hand-wound mechanical movements and were the successor to the original 'marine chronometer' style sea-clocks of the 18th century, which mariners used to calculate longitude by means of celestial navigation.

The Portsea Heritage shares the same dial construction as the Portsea Calendar collection, however the dial has been simplified with a more traditional 3-hand configuration and a slightly slimmer case make it ideal for both dress and casual wear. The Melbourne Portsea Heritage is powered by a Seiko NH35 self-winding mechanical movement with a date window at 6:00 on the blue dial. The multi-layered dial features a unique moulded ceramic main disc which gives the Portsea Heritage a sense of depth and detail, capped off by silver hands with our signature "M" counter-balance. The Portsea is completed by surgical grade 316L stainless steel casing, an anti-reflective sapphire crystal lens and an alligator grain leather strap.
