EMG is a young, enthusiast-focused brand that successfully launched their first watch, the neo-vintage DL63 chronograph, last year. Their second watch was another retro-inspired chronograph dubbed the Horizon. For their latest project, however, EMG is trying something a little different. They’ve teamed up with forum watch specialist Eddy Tse (HKED), who has in the past brought several Watchuseek project watches to fruition, to create the Nemo, the brand’s first dive watch. Another vintage-inspired offering from the brand, the Nemo is a reference to Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (and not Pixar’s favorite fish), but you might think otherwise with the wide range of color choices available here.
The path of the vintage-inspired dive watch is one that is fairly well trodden, but there are some nice touches here that make the HKED/EMG Nemo worthy of consideration.
