Description

Adina Automatic Warwick Firearms “Mil Spec Edition” watch CT115 (Midnight)

As with every Adina watch, we used a cold-stamped stainless steel (316L) case, with the Adina Warwick Firearms “Mil Spec Edition” watch CT115 making a “bullet proof” watch was going to start here.

Cold stamping is the premium method of making a watch case. The case, after being stamped, goes through an oven, for want of a better term, heated then cooled. This process is called annealing. The annealing process gives a very stable foundation as the case won’t expand or contract with heat and cold to help ensure the water proofing integrity is rated 100% to 20ATM. After the stamping and annealing process, it moves to a c & c machine for milling and drilling before being polished.

Once we reached this point, we stepped beyond where no Adina case had been before. The case has been hand numbered, keyed (sandblasted) then painted with Cerakote. Cerakote is a ceramic based finish that can be applied to metal, enhancing the physical performance properties of the steel, including abrasion, wear and corrosion resistance, chemical resistance, impact strength and hardness. Basically an absolute bad ass coating in a range of military inspired colours.

Once we received the case bodies back we then need to fit each pendant to the case, this is the steel tube that the bi O-ring crown will sit over the top of. We also needed to fit each of the 2.80mm this highly scratch resistant, solid sapphire glasses. Meanwhile, over in our service division each of the High Beat, Swiss Made STP1-11 movements were being reoiled with Swiss Made, Moebius ‘synta-frigo-lube 9030/2 which had already proven itself in the freezing temperatures atop the highest mountain in the world. Each of the 25 jewel, incabloc system movements was regulated to +5-10sec/day before the hand fitting of the dial and hands. It goes almost without saying that this dial is going to glow at night and I mean glow! The dial and hand using a vintage luminous green colour to supreme effect!

With the cases now fully assembled with the rotating ceramic bezels, we fitted the movements, the crowns and stems before tightening the exhibition clear screw backs.All done by hand with meticulous care and attention to detail by a qualified watchmaker here in Brisbane Australia.

Each one has been then water tested to ensure water resistant integrity, before sliding the Nylon NATO style strap, which is 290mm long, 1.5mm thickness and features sand blasted steel buckles. Wipe down with a polishing cloth and into the special timber boxing.

All this only took almost two years! After you experience the Warwicks Firearms “Special Edition” Adina Automatic Amphibian Watch you will be pleased we did.

This watch is awesome, just saying.

  1. Peter Robertson

    I have had my new Adina Automatic Warwick Firearms Mil Spec Edition Watch CT115 (Midnight) nearly a week now. I am still getting used to it but I thought I would give my impressions of the watch so that it may help others considering purchasing one. Some of the things I like so far are: Firstly the size, it is not too big at 41mm diameter so fits my skinny arms ok. It is obviously very robust and I like the fixed band pins for additional security. The cerakote coating is a beautiful finish. I also like that the movement is hackable and I can accurately set the time. So far it has proven to maintain the time very accurately. The power reserve on the movement is not too bad, it ran for just over 27 hours when I took it off and left it sitting. It is designed and assembled in Australia using quality components such as the Swiss automatic movement and sapphire glass. The display back adds class as well. I know it will have service back up from a local company when I need it and the service I received during the purchase process was exemplary. Things I don’t like so much… Just one, the lume. It does glow and you can see the markers on the dial but the hands are difficult to see in the dark. The much cheaper Seiko 5 automatic it replaces has way brighter lume both on the dial and on the hands. Overall though the watch has a solid quality feel about it and I hope to have it for years to come. I am very happy it is Australian manufactured and has the back up of a long standing local company.

      Thats great Peter! Thanks for the review. One thing I will say regarding the supaluminova we are using on our dials is that it is completely reliant on the amount of light the watch is exposed to. Cheers Grant
