A modern dive watch inspired by 100 years’ history
From the shipyards to the linen mills, Belfast has a rich history of craft and innovation. The iconic Samson & Goliath cranes dominate the city’s skyline as a symbol of shipbuilding strength and industrial triumph. The shipyard where they stand, Harland and Wolff, is most famous for its 401st ship, the RMS Titanic as well as her first-class passenger tender, SS Nomadic.
Drawing inspiration from this shipbuilding legacy, we called our dive watch collection Maraí 401. The word means ‘sea farer’ in Irish; the number an echo of Titanic’s production name. With a 40mm case, 660ft water resistance and a Swiss mechanical movement, Maraí 401 echoes Belfast's greatest engineering feats. The unmistakable sweeping yellow second hand is a humble nod to those iconic cranes.
Our brand name, Nomadic, has another meaning. To be nomadic – to move from place to place – is symbolic of our desire to make continual progress as a company, and as purpose-led individuals. We believe that perpetual movement across countries and continents adds depth to our character. Experiencing different cultures as a citizen of the world makes us more understanding of different perspectives.
It helps us to thrive by making the most of every second we have; those moments measured and swept around the face of our watches by the iconically coloured second hand.
