Words from the designer, Joe Wichowski
"I love watches. I currently have about six in my normal rotation. Recently, while on vacation, I found myself taking off my dive watch from the daytime, and putting on a formal watch for dinner. I got to thinking - isn't there something that could go from water to formal dinner without breaking the bank? An automatic watch, self-winding, but built with quality to enable me to snorkel and dive with it, but dressy enough to wear out at night. One watch to rule them all -
So with that, my concept was born. I call this watch - "The PolAm Hamtramck".
I always liked the look of a Shark Mesh band on dive watches, so I mated that to a 46mm 316l stainless steel case (same as Tag) that is certified as waterproof to 10ATM (330ft). I also added a domed sapphire crystal to help make the watch face "pop".
I then added a 20 minute "countdown to zero" bezel (like on alot of the old-school Vostok dive watches) - which I use for both Scuba and cooking.
Finally, I added a proven-quality Seiko NH35 self-winding automatic movement, capable of over 40 hours reserve time. Like high-end watches, this watch does not need batteries.
For the watch back, I wanted something inspiring. So I added the Polish Eagle and the phrase kuj żelazo póki gorące, which means "Strike While The Iron Is Hot".
So that's it really. I wanted a single watch to fit my lifestyle - to go from water, to the kitchen, to the theater - and when I couldn't find the one I was passionate about, I set about to make my own."
