1815 & 1954 GREEN TURTLE
Each and every one of our watches are named after an important point in the history of horology. In 1954, the world saw its first GMT watch, originally created for pilots flying across time zones in a matter of hours and naturally, our 1954 GMT Green Turtle carries its name hereafter.
The watch is carefully designed with quality materials, sapphire glass and with a meticulous level of detail - from its textured dial inspired by green sea turtles to its subtle gold markers and hands encapsulated in a timeless steel case.
HOW IT'S DONE
On the Derawan islands off East-Borneo in Indonesia, local rangers patrol beaches on a 24/7 basis to ensure hatching turtles reach the shallows safely, guiding and watching over them from start to finish.
Because of this, baby turtles are given a fair chance at life, beginning their journey as they safely (and slowly) make their way through the sand into the sea. You directly contribute to a safe beginning for 20 baby turtles.

I love this watch so much! The color, the textured dial, the styling, the case size/thickness, and the INCREDIBLE bracelet are all reasons to love this watch! Not everything is perfect though. The bezel doesn’t completely line up, the second hand hits the markers on half of the dial but by 30 seconds is half a second off until it reaches home again. Lastly the clasp is very very stiff to the point where it hurts my fingers trying to get it open. I have found workarounds, but a double pusher with fold over safety would have made the experience more enjoyable in my opinion. Overall the watch is truly amazing and extremely beautiful despite its very subjective flaws! I have found myself wearing it nearly every day since getting it! Well done!
Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us a review and for sharing you feedback with us - we very much appreciate it! We are thrilled that your overall experience is great but your feedback regarding both the bezel and the clasp is also well noted for future reference.
We hope you will enjoy the watch for many years to come. Have a great day!
Overall great looking and feeling piece.
The only things that prevent 5 stars are the layout of the markers (hard to read at a quick glance since all dots look the same size absent an intense look). Also no lume on the hour markers, just the hands.
Other than that it’s a great piece!
Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and for sharing your honest and constructive feedback with us - we always value that!
We are happy to hear that you like the overall look and feeling of the 1954 GMT. Your feedback about the layout of the markers and the lack of lume on the hour markers is well noted for our future design process - thank you!
Happy Friday :-)
