Kobold Expedition Tools
The Seal is the most iconic Kobold watch. Designed by James Gandolfini, the late actor and Kobold brand ambassador, the Seal has been in production since 2004. Often imitated but never successfully copied, the legendary Seal has a striking look thanks to its oversized rotating bezel and small face. The heft of the Seal is due to its bulk -43mm diameter and 17mm height- and its internal soft iron core, which protects its Swiss automatic-winding mechanism from the effects of magnetism.
The Seal is also equipped with a secondary shock absorption system that is part of the case. Its strap is secured to the U.S.-made stainless steel case with a pair of screw-locked lug bars. A screw-locked stainless steel buckle prevents the Seal from inadvertently coming off your wrist. Of course, you'll be asked by awe-struck strangers to take it off for a closer inspection. That's when the Seal's many intricate design queues, such a the beveled edges on its lugs and the hand-applied brushed surface finish, will impress even the most avid watch aficionados. There's nothing quite like the Seal.
