On December 1, 2019, Advisor Watch Co. shared the first image of their latest watch: The SUPA Diver Bronze. This is the third model from the Singapore-based microbrand watch company and it looks super.
For their first two watches, Advisor crowdfunded on Kickstarter to get the word out. It’s unclear if they will rinse and repeat, but what is clear is that they quietly put a sign-up box on their site and have been posting sneak peeks of the new diver on social media.
Here is what we know so far…
- Swiss made automatic movement
- Sellita caliber SW200-1
- Solid marine grade CuSn8 bronze case
- Diameter: 44mm
- Thickness: 14.5mm
- Lug-to-Lug: 51mm
- Matte black ceramic bezel insert with lumed markers
- A 120 click uni-directional rotating bezel
- Domed sapphire crystal with three layers of anti-reflective and anti-fingerprint coating
- Screw-down crown
- Water resistant up to 300m/1,000ft
- Rubber strap
In contrast, their previous AstroHelm and Ascent models are powered by Japan-made automatic movements, with lower water resistance, and feel like dressier timepieces on leather straps. While they are great watches, the SUPA Diver Bronze looks like a solid diver and is going to take Advisor to the next level. It’s nice to see this kind of growth and evolution from a micro-watch brand!
Known SUPA Dial Options:
- Black Sea – Black dial/black bezel
- Blue Sea – Matte blue dial/black bezel
- Green Monster – Green gradient dial/black bezel
In Advisor’s Own Words:
“Rugged, masculine, stylish. Robust dive watches with 300m depth rating, making a worthy companion for all your adventures.” -Advisor
The Supa Diver Bronze sure sounds super! The new watch is slated to hit the market in 2020, with pre-orders opening up at the beginning of the year. Sign-up here to register your interest. In the meantime, stayed tuned for our full review as soon as we can get our hands on one. For other great Advisor watches, check the KTT watch shop here.
Advisor says they have applied multiple coats of lume material to the dial and bezel for a powerful glow. The lume type is Swiss made Super-LumiNova in C3 or BGW9 tones. They posted this lumed up wristshot on Instagram calling this piece the Lume Monster. We’re not sure if that is going to be an actual model name, or just what they are jokingly referring to the SUPA’s ability to get lit. We shall wait and see!

The Supa Diver Bronze Kickstarter campaign has officially launched. Within less than two days, they are already at almost $19K out of a $42,853 goal. The early bird price of $459 USD secures you a new bronze diver with a ceramic bezel, loads of lume, and a Swiss Sellita SW200-1. We actually sent an Instagram DM to Advisor telling them that the price is too low, because we want them make money so that can keep making cool watches and grow their business. Anyway, you better hop on this intro pricing while you can!
