Fulcrum

MKII watches has released its newest watch in the Fulcrum. The Fulcrum is an amalgamation of a number of concepts or inspiration. Basically the Fulcrum could be what the "American Milsub" would ave looked like if it were issued to the US Military.

The Fulcrum features a "Tropic" domed sapphire crystal, a curved back, bead blasted finish (against the favoured Parkerized or satin finish) and a 12-hour GMT styled bezel (with a 20 minute elapsed counter). 

As with any of MKII creations, the watches they produced are 'modernised' with features like anti-magnetic shielding (up to 80,000 A/m), a date complication, Helium release valve, modern luminous material (Lume-brik technology) while preserving some of the old vintage design such as drilled lugs. 

The Fulcrum is built in the USA with a Swiss movement (Soprod A10) and will retail for USD 1,925.  MKII is however currently running a promotion and you can get the watch for USD 1,732. There are two models to chose from, the difference is the colour of the bezel insert.
