The Aquamarine mechanical automatic watch collection was built for Ocean and Adventure. Designed to withstand and perform in the harshest of environments with understated character and effortless style.
Kevin Wheelan is a man whose life is dedicated to Adventure. As an accomplished professional yachtsman, Kevin knows the vast oceans of this earth and the challenges they present more than most. Based in Sydney Australia, Kevin has travelled the globe in his Beneteau yacht “Reve”. On a three-month voyage at sea, Kevin took his family on an adventure of a lifetime circumnavigating the world. An unforgettable and life changing experience, that presented challenges including rough seas, pirates, and storms that demanded great faith and skill to prevail. With the ocean running through his veins, Kevin is a regular participant in Australia’s most prestigious and dangerous annual sailing event; “The Sydney to Hobart Yacht Race”. Not for the faint hearted, this two day and night 630 nautical mile endurance challenge crosses the often wild and dangerous Bass Strait. Notorious for high winds and rough seas this stretch of the race on route to the southern end of the Australian continent has hosted the demise of countless ocean vessels.
When faced with great challenges in adventure, it is critical to choose equipment that is dependable and durable to ensure accuracy and success. This is why Kevin Wheelan’s choice of timepiece is the Aquamarine Atlantic Descent. With a water resistance rating of 200 meters, 40 hours mechanical power reserve, a crisp readable dial and incredible timing accuracy the Aquamarine 45 is the right choice to achieve success at sea or wherever your adventures might be.
