    Helm Automatic 40mm Komodo early 2019 Goes Live On Friday Evening, March 15th, EST



    The Komodo is not yet in stock​ . We hope to have it available by February, 2019. US$285.00 + US$30 Shipping World Wide

    KOMODO

    Tucked among the Lesser Sunda Islands of Indonesia, the remote Komodo island is home to the famed Komodo dragon, while the tropical waters surrounding the island are host to some of the richest marine biodiversity on the planet. Begging to explore these rich waters, the HELM Komodo features a 316L stainless steel case and bracelet, automatic movement, screw-down caseback and crown, domed sapphire crystal, unidirectional bezel, highly legible dial and a 300 meter depth rating. With a compact case diameter of 40mm, the ISO 6425 compliant Komodo is the perfect size to strap on for any far-flung adventure.

    Available with three dial variations and several aftermarket bezel options, the Komodo also includes the NS1 Nylon Strap―an excellent option in the water and a casual, lighter weight alternative to the stainless bracelet. And with a standard 20mm lug width, the Komodo can be dressed up or down with limitless aftermarket straps, including our own CS1 canvas strap and RS1 rubber strap (coming soon).

    November 18, 2018: Production Updates
    The first production of the Komodo 300m Automatic and the third production of the Khuraburi are nearly complete. However, we're still in development of the new diver's extension clasp that will come standard with all stainless bracelets and which is holding up production of the Komodo and Khuraburi bracelets. We hope to have everything squared away in time to begin selling watches in February. We're also waiting on delivery of our new RS1 rubber strap, which should arrive within the next month. Below, a peek at two of the three Komodo dial variations.

    Some collectors who liked the first two larger size offerings passed because of their smaller size preference. Branching out to more sizes is always a plus IMO. If these sell as good as the other offerings it helps to gauge future projects and can always be offered in a larger size in the next production.

    Perfect example is ET with the MAKO. He produced a few batches in 40mm sizes and has a soon to be released 44mm version coming out with the SW200. It will also be offered in SS in orange, teal, blue and meteorite dials and also in a bronze case. The case will be thicker (16mm) with a 1000m WR.
