Early Bird pricing is $480
Regular price will be $675

Estimated delivery is August 2020

NOTE from Iconic about the model name:
PSA: As sometimes happens with Microbrand Watches, The official name of this dive watch from Iconic Timepieces has been changed from Hampton Bay to Halocline. Iconic Timepieces made this change to limit market confusion as well as provide a better over all name to fit what this diver is all about.

Changes to be me made from prototype to production models:
- The IT logo will be a stainless steel applied logo and centered correctly.
- Changing the bracelet to an H-Link bracelet with a taper from 22mm at the lugs to 18mm at the clasp.
- Upgrading the clasp to a better quality and longer clasp with more micro adjustments.
- The wording “Automatic 200meters” will be reconfigured for better visibility and balance.
- Changing the lume from C3 to bgw9 and making stronger for longevity.
- Hands will be changed to a thicker set for better legibility. (See render and SeaFoam Green prototype.)
- The name of the watch has changed from Hampton Bay to Halocline.

Iconic Watches has launched an Indiegogo campaign to raise additional funds for the Halocline Diver.

From the campaign:

We began on Kickstarter and in the middle of the campaign the pandemic caused me to lose over half of my backers.

Then a company that placed a 100 unit order backed out at the last minute.

So in order to complete this project I need to raise the $32,000 that the company never paid.
The watches are all done except assembly so delivery will be fast
All the funds will go towards paying off the manufacturer and duties plus shipping.



https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/icon ... 16205959#/

Preorder price for any of the four colorways is $480
Regular price will be $675

Estimated delivery is November 2020
