Our newest tool watch is made for the dreamers, the fighters, the outsiders. Those born to voyage beyond the horizon, ready to brave any storm.

Its unique character and performance combine to create the ultimate watch for the open seas.

THE BRIGHTEST STARS AND MOON.​

At night on open water, only the glow of the moon and stars are visible – both in the sky and on your wrist. Infused with self-powered micro gas tubes, the dial’s hour markers, all three hands and the moon phase indicator shine with stellar luminosity no matter how dark it becomes. Built entirely from micro gas tubes, the moon phase indicator glows in a simple, yet stunning display of technology and craftsmanship. In addition to the automatic brightness of our tritium tubes, the bezel’s Super-LumiNova coating rounds out the darkness-conquering light show.

TIMELESS TIDES, EXCEPTIONAL TECHNOLOGY.​

For sailors, oceanographers and enthusiasts alike, tides play a critical role in exploration. That’s why the specially engineered external bezel accurately tracks high and low tides during a period of 14 days. Simply rotate the bezel counterclockwise to set the day of the week on the inner ring, then turn clockwise to correctly position the corresponding tide markings on the external bezel itself.

Flowing with fascination, ocean tides are caused by the combined gravitational forces exerted by the moon, sun and rotation of the Earth. Tides take 12 hours to change from low to high and vice versa, meaning they happen twice a day.

A TIDAL WAVE OF PRECISION.​

On the lower part of the dial, our specially developed movement module is on full display via a sub-dial of 2 layers. Constructed of micro gas lights, the moon phase indicator displays each phase with stunning accuracy. It is encircled and enhanced by a spring and neap tide indicator to reveal the strength of the current tides in the northern hemisphere.

Spring tides are the highest tides, occurring every two weeks during a new or full moon when the earth, sun and moon are aligned. Lower tides, called neap tides, happen during a quarter or three-quarter moon when the earth, sun and moon create a right angle, which causes the sun and moon to pull water in two directions.

A NAUTICAL POWERHOUSE.​

The ocean represents Mother Nature’s best in beauty and brutality. To this end, the Roadmaster Ocean Explorer combines the toughness and wearability necessary to command any expedition. Its 41mm case, at only 12.95mm thick,

is forged from robust stainless steel, while the steel bracelet is built to withstand all the knocks that come with adventure. And if your exploration takes you to the waterfronts, the robustness of the case and crown combine to offer water resistance to 100 meters.
