Artist's Drawing ⇪

One of the most exciting watches of 2019 has to be the unique and strikingly attractive SPINNAKER DUMAS, an unique octagonal diver’s watch which draws its influence from a very intriguing diver’s watch of the 1970’s, specifically produced to the exacting standards of the French Navy’s Cartography Department.

Spinnaker watches are second to none in allowing watch enthusiasts to indulge their fancy for interesting and unusual marine designs which do not break the bank to acquire. Because of its unique look and feel, the Dumas was a massive success for us. The entire production run worldwide sold out in less than four weeks! Many of our loyal enthusiasts who enquired were disappointed. However, after months of fruitful conversation between us, we at Page and Cooper are thrilled to launch a fresh and exclusive Page and Cooper Limited Edition Dumas, inspired by our love for classic dive watches.

Whilst we pay homage to the classic dive watch designs of the 1970’s, we at the same time have given our edition a contemporary and technical design update. Imagine, if you will, a fresh 2020 Naval Cartographer’s requirement! We have named our limited edition The Spinnaker Dumas Cartographe. The Cartographe will retain the classic Dumas case with its unique polished and brushed 43mm 316L stainless steel case certified to a Professional Dive Watch depth rating of 300m. This is a serious dive watch.

The glass bezel has luminous indices and a new triangular lume pip. The tough sapphire crystal has a new anti-reflective treatment. The Cartographe has a unique dial and bezel designed by us in-house in a subtle and stylishly attractive Oxford Blue. Who doesn’t love a cool blue watch! Our dial is a single layer and we have used classic rectangular markers, pilot’s style indices for a clean, uncluttered look. Our lume is generously applied using a new technique and uses our favourite Swiss C3 Superluminova. This watch has superb low light visibility.

The Limited Edition Cartographe features Plongeur watch hands with the minute hand in orange and the hour hand in brushed stainless steel to match the applied markers. Another design change agreed with us, is to change the second hand from round to rectangular, thus matching the rectangular minute markers. We are thrilled with the new look of our special Dumas. It looks like it has stepped straight out of the 1970’s.

The Page and Cooper Spinnaker Dumas Cartographe is powered by the tried and tested Seiko NH35 movement with a customised Spinnaker rotor, visible through the screw down glass display back. Each watch will come equipped fitted with a stainless steel heavy duty shark mesh bracelet and diver’s extension plus safety lock to complete the classic dive look. Page and Cooper Limited Editions are designed to be unique and rare. Many of our previous Special Editions are much in demand and command a premium, eg the Sinn BLU1 or the Squale Vintage Master. These watches now fetch thousands of pounds but, and it’s a big BUT, the Page and Cooper Spinnaker Dumas Cartographe will sell, initially for just £375! Incredible value! At this date we have authorised just 30 pieces! Yes, that’s right. We want this watch, of which we are justly proud to be just that, limited. But at the same time we wish to make it available all who want one.Orders will be open from now until 31st of August only.

We will be exhibiting the watch at the World Time UK Show and until the last day of this month we can vary our order with Spinnaker. So up to 31st August, we can produce enough to make everyone happy. After that date. No more. This has been a long blog. We are proud of the content. We have produced this watch with great care and made it something very special and we are thrilled to offer it at a stunning price. And so, if you would like one of these amazing watches then don’t delay order today to be one of the very first to receive this special watch from November 2019.
