About the NTH Subs Brand: Don’t think of it as retro.

The NTH Subs are our tribute to some revered icons, tracing their heritage back to timepieces issued to military divers in the post-war period. Those quintessential tool watches have only gotten better- looking with age. We wanted to combine their classic, rugged style with modern capabilities.

Each Sub model shares the same purpose-oriented, big-crown, no crown-guard case, with a slightly raised, double-domed, anti-reflective sapphire crystal, and no-nonsense case back with minimal decoration.

About NTH:

NTH, pronounced either “Enth” or “N-T-H”, is about acknowledging the past with a “Nod to History”, but also looking forward, exploring our limits, and taking things as far as we can, to the “Nth degree”, where “N” represents infinite possibility.

Think of it as neo-classic.

We increased water resistance and gave it a sloped steel bezel with lumed markers. Yet we made the case thinner, more streamlined, with chamfered sides and downward-curved lugs for a wrist-hugging shape, and added our signature lumed crown.
Each NTH Sub has its own personality, designed either to emulate the weathered good looks of a well-traveled vintage piece, or as a modern interpretation of what those vintage pieces might look like if they were still being produced today.
