INTRODUCING THE 1926 SURFRIDER AUTOMATIC
Exclusively available until June 8th. After that, it’s gone for good!
Inspired by the surfers of Malibu in the 1970’s, waterproof to 100m, automatic Japanese made movement with a 42 hour power reserve, and a nato strap made of recycled plastic, we give you the 1926 Surfrider Automatic.
It’s made to order - you order, then we produce.
1926 SURFRIDER AUTOMATIC
Each and every one of our watches are named after important moments in the history of horology. Mankind has been exploring the underwater world for centuries and 1926 was a game changing year for all sea explorers as the first dive watch emerged.
Made with a hermetically sealed case for optimal protection the first waterproof wristwatch marked a major step forward – making timekeeping underwater an everyman luxury. Our dive watch is a humble celebration of that remarkable achievement. We hope that our 1926 Surfrider Automatic will take you on your very own adventure, both below and above the big blue ocean.
The watch is carefully designed with quality materials, such as its sapphire glass and 316L stainless steel frame alongside a meticulous level of detail - from its off-white dial and faded green bezel to its subtle steel hands encapsulated in a timeless steel case. Notice also the wave placed on the dial underneath the About Vintage signature.

MADE TO ORDER
Made to order means making products only after they are ordered. Contrary to the traditional process, the watch will first be produced after you have placed your order.
This way, we ensure that there is no excess supply. Only watches ordered between May 18th and June 8th will be produced.
A special summer edition of the 1926 Automatic, the Surfrider draws on inspiration from the 1970s Malibu surf culture.
References like the sun bleached green bezel and the off-white matte dial speaks to the free spirited ocean lovers. To underline this, a small wave adorns the dial while a pair of surfboards have made their way into the caseback design.
THIS COLLECTION SUPPORTS THE OCEAN CLEANUP
To support the action taken to preserve our planet's oceans, About Vintage and Jonathan Harboe have decided to donate a portion of all of the proceeds to The Ocean Cleanup.
Owning the 1926 Surfrider Automatic will not only act as a reminder of the significant evolution in watch manufacturing, but also as an ode to helping the preservation of the world's oceans.
We hope that our newest addition to the 1926 Automatic collection will expand your horizons as to what it means to wear a dive watch and in addition, to raise your awareness on how to aid our oceans.
