The Candeo Pro was designed and manufactured by the same suppliers that produce watches for Tempest Watches. We have completed all the prototyping/tooling. We are ready for a small production run to test the market reaction.

Candeo (kan-day-oh) is a Latin word meaning to glow brilliantly, to shine, to sparkle. Every component of the Candeo Pro is custom designed and made only using the best materials available. It is water-resistant up to 50 atmospheres (500 meters) of pressure. Its unique automatic hybrid movement offers the accuracy of a Quartz movement but powered by your movement. On a full charge, will last 6 months not require battery change and therefore does not require opening the watch – a significant advantage for a professional diving watch.

MATERIALS AND QUALITY​

The Movement

The Candeo Pro utilizes a Japanese movement - caliber YT57B by Seiko Epson which is a hybrid quartz/mechanical movement. Ultra-accurate quartz technology with a mechanical charging system that utilizes your hand movements to charge an internal capacitor to provide electric energy to move the hands. After fully charged, the watch continues to operate for 6 months. It also remembers the time for up to a year and continues to work after resting with just a few swings.

Case and Bracelet​

The case and bracelet (for the bracelet models) are made out of solid titanium which is a hard, non-corrosive material and yet very light. It is 56% of the weight of stainless steel for the same volume. Its strength and lightness make titanium a preferred material for the aerospace industries where both these properties are necessary. The Candeo Pro, having a rather large case and dial opening for increased visibility, would require a light and strong material like titanium which is the reason we chose it for best performance and comfort.

The case and bracelet will be available in two options; Sandblasted or Brushed finish.

Rubber Strap

The strap on the Candeo-Pro is made out of EPDM rubber which is a synthetic elastomer that unlike PU (polyurethane) straps, provides excellent durability and elasticity when exposed to ozone and UV light and retains its softness and elastic properties for many years.

Solid Screw Bars


Our Candeo pro straps and bracelets are fitted to the case using solid screw bars. These bars provide 3-4 time extra strength over normal spring bars

Screw Down Crown

Candeo pro uses a screw-down crown to maintain water resistance in all positions. Unlike other dive watches, the thread tube of the crown is welded into the case for better resistance and durability.

Dials​

We use the multilayered Superluminova materials for the black dials and the Visible247TM technology for the white and green dials.

Our non-radioactive colored photo-luminescent technology delivers the world’s highest-performing luminous dials. Featuring injection molded plastics and multilayered Superluminova printing, our watches absorb energy from light and use it to emit their own light in dark conditions, staying bright for up to 8 hours.

*Black Dial - Lume in photo is not enhanced in any way*

The White and Green dials are made from Visible247™ - a patented materials matrix containing phosphors doped with rare earth metals including europium and dysprosium (to provide the glow), along with proprietary polymer alloys and specialized colorants. Unlike other radioactive luminous materials, this technology, “Powered by Visible247TM” has been certified safe when used in end products for a wide range of uses, including children’s toys.

Risks and challenges​

The Candeo Pro was designed and manufactured by the same suppliers that produce watches for Tempest Watches. We have completed all the prototyping/tooling. We are ready for a small production run to test the market reaction. We would like you to experience the Luxmark brand hence why we are offering the watches at this special introductory price (never to be seen again!). The watches will be shipped 2-3 weeks after the campaign ends. Arrival dates may be delayed due to global disruptions to shipping networks.
