Often imitated but never successfully copied - the Kobold Seal is back!
Kobold is honored to announce the return of the legendary Soarway Diver “Seal”. Designed by the late actor James Gandolfini, this iconic tool watch returns to the Kobold line-up after 3 1/2 years and for the first time feature a Made-in-USA case created in our in-house casemaking facility. For the first time, the Seal’s matte-black dial is stamped “Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania” to indicate that its case was produced in-house. The latest generation of the Kobold Seal is identical to past versions in terms of dimensions - 44mm diameter and 17mm thickness. An extra-thick, domed sapphire crystal, uni-directional rotating bezel and screw-locked lug bars all complement the rugged design of the Seal. The stainless steel case of the Seal is available in two executions, a bead blasted matte finish as well as a hand-applied finish with alternately brushed and polished surfaces. The higher grade version also features a detailed engraving of a Pacific seal - a throwback to the original watch that was launched in 2004. The watch ships on a canvas band. Assembled in USA of U.S.-made and imported components. The introductory price for the basic version is $1,950 and applies to existing customers only. The high-grade version is priced at $2,750. The Seal will begin to ship in March 2017. To prevent shipping delays due to oversubscription, only 100 Seals are available at the introductory price.
