New Release: The Limited Edition Nautic Collection

Sporty, masculine and perfect for any occasion, from a casual weekend to a black-tie event, our Limited Edition Nautic Collection is finally here!

Our F&F community asked, and we listened. In this article, we find out what Steve, the founder of Forge & Foster, had to say about the new Nautic Collection that includes Torrent, Navigator, Element and Vista.

What was the inspiration behind the new Nautic collection?

For a long time, we wanted to create a limited edition “tribute” watch that was a reflection of not only what our community wanted to see from us but also have an influence in the design process itself. 

A year ago, it began with asking our customers what they would like to see next from Forge & Foster -- and the most common result was “Create a diver watch”

Can you talk us through the design process?

Once we knew the next watch was to create a diver watch, and in the spirit of creating a community-collaborative piece, we took to Instagram and started drafting up a series of different Story posts, where our community could vote on different design ideas.

We tested everything -- bezel styles, dial textures, case size, movement options, you name it.

The community voted, and we kept updating & refining the concepts until every piece of the watch was manufactured to how the community envisioned it.

Finally, we brought the final render concepts to our customers, who had a final say on the last details. I even spoke directly with some of our customers for feedback to see how they felt about it.

Most importantly, in the design process, we made sure to integrate the subtle details and design language you would expect from Forge & Foster -- such as bold case design, integrated straps, eye-catching dial textures, etc.

What features does the new collection have?

As it’s a community-driven project, it features a lot of specifications that our customers were keen to see. Here’s a quick run-down on the notable features:


- C3 Super Luminova: Given that it’s a Diver watch, strong lume is a mandatory requirement for this style.


- Matte Ceramic Bezel: To create the bold look, we knew a ceramic bezel would be the best choice instead of aluminium.


- 3rd Party Strap Support: The watch can fit any 22mm strap, and you’ll find them currently fitted between a steel bracelet with micro-adjustments or the integrated FKM rubber strap.


- 128 Click Uni-directional Bezel: Another given standard you should see in Diver watches.


- Miyota 8215 Automatic Movement: A workhorse movement that is reliable for everyday use.


- 200M Water Resistance: As it's a diver watch, it's able to go up to 200meters underwater.

Which is your personal favourite from the collection and why?

The majority of people will likely prefer the Torrent for its blue texture dial, but for me personally, it would have to be the Vista, as I like the gradient exposure of the movement in the dial. 

A Diver watch is a must-have for every watch collection, but which one will be making it into yours?

Be quick since this limited-edition collection will sell out fast, and once it's gone, it's gone!
