Halios watches probably needs little introduction on worn&wound. Over the last few years, the Vancouver based dive watch brand has earned a reputation for making great, unique watches. We previously reviewed two versions of their Tropik watches, one in bronze and the other in steel, both of which earned high regards from us. Stylish, restrained, well built, well priced… they were hard not to like.
Last October, Jason, the founder of Halios, brought his wares down from Canada to show at our Wind-Up: NYC event. He had on display samples of all of his watches, from the coveted 1000M Puck to his newest at the time and the topic of this review, the Delfin. It was love at first sight. I’m not sure how many times I went over to his booth and quietly picked it up to ogle and try on, but hopefully I didn’t annoy him too much. Needless to day, I knew I had to review it.
Fast forward a few months and here we are with the Delfin PVD, the follow up to the initial stainless model. Sporting a sophisticated design that pulls from vintage, but feels contemporary the Delfin is a unique and highly attractive 500m dive watch. Coming in at $690 or $715 shipped to the US, this Miyota 9015 powered boutique diver is surely one you’re going to want to know more about.
