1815 & 1954 GREEN TURTLE
Each and every one of our watches are named after an important point in the history of horology. In 1815 the chronograph technique was invented, and naturally our bestseller 1815 Chronograph carries its name hereafter.
The watch is carefully designed with quality materials, such as seen with its domed sapphire glass and 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 purchased this watch for my son for his birthday as his wife said that he had been admiring it for a while.
He was over the moon when I gave it to him, it was exactly what he wanted. The box and packing was also very lovely, a beautiful, stylish looking watch that will no doubt last a very long time.
We are so happy to hear that! Thank you for choosing About Vintage and for sharing your story with us. We hope your son will enjoy his watch for many years to come.
Have a great day!
I purchased the 1815 Chronograph with the Green Sunray dial. All told, I really like it. The strap is well-crafted and looks even better in person. I really like the green sunray dial. It is a nice change of pace from most of my watches (black or white dial). Only two small drawbacks (minor-minor, so not enough to dissuade me from keeping it). First, the anti-reflective coating on the glass is fine, but I'm getting more reflection than I expected. I think that's because of the domed shape of the glass, which causes it to draw and reflect more light.
Secondly, the hands are a bit darker in person (and maybe more narrow?) than the online images, which can make it a bit more difficult to tell the time in lower light conditions, or when glass is reflecting a lot of light. Still, it's not enough for me to want to return the watch. Definitely a keeper. And the presentation of the watch (box, etc) was superb.
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a review! We highly appreciate both your positive and constructive feedback. We do believe that the domed sapphire glass is a nice detail of the watch, but we can also understand your frustration about the reflection that can sometimes appear from certain angles. We hope you can learn to live with this minor frustration and your overall positive opinion on the watch outshines this.
Wishing you a great day!
Love this watch. Well made, beautiful face.
Thank you so much, Andrew! It means a lot to us. Thank you for taking the time to leave a review and for sharing you experience.
Have a nice day :-)
The watch came quickly and in great packaging. Additional instructions and follow up via email was great. The top of the watch is domed and gives off a strong reflection, this is extreme and is worse when viewed at an angle which makes it hard to see the face of the watch and tell the time. Outside of the reflection, there are no serious issues. Beautiful watch and color.

This was my second watch from About Vintage; the first one was a 1844 Chronograph which was a gift to someone and I got this one for myself. I am in love with the color of the dial and the design of the watch itself. The overall feel of the watch is perfect and it could not have been better! The box was beautiful as well. Looking forward to increasing my watch collection from About Vintage.
Thank you so much for choosing to gift an About Vintage to someone you care about and congratulations on getting one for yourself now! We appreciate all the kind words and can't wait to welcome you back when you decide to add another AV timepiece to your collection.
Until then, enjoy your watch. Have a nice day :-)
