Baltic Unveils Striking Gold PVD Timepieces: HMS 002, Bicompax 002, and MR01

A Fusion of Black and Gold

The allure of black and gold never fails to captivate, and Baltic's latest Gold PVD watch collection is no exception. Comprising three of the brand's vintage-inspired models, each watch is priced under €1,000, a testament to Baltic's commitment to affordability without sacrificing style.

Three Classic Models with a Modern Twist

The collection includes the Baltic MR01, Bicompax 002, and HMS 002, each sporting a classic black and gold design. The MR01, with its striking gold PVD case and black dial adorned with gold Breguet numerals, immediately catches the eye.

The Bicompax 002, a 1940s-inspired chronograph, exudes sophistication in its new color scheme, while the HMS 002, a stylish three-hander, completes the trio. All three watches come with a black Italian Saffiano calf leather strap, featuring a gold PVD buckle for a cohesive look.

Detailed Overview of Each Model

The MR01 features a 36mm stainless steel case with gold PVD coating. The 36mm case, with a 9.9mm thickness (including the domed acrylic glass) and a 44mm lug-to-lug span, suits smaller wrists perfectly. The black glossy dial, complemented by the guilloché small seconds dial, creates a stunning contrast with the gold elements.

The Baltic HMS 002 Gold PVD boasts an Art Deco-inspired design in a 38mm stepped case, giving it a slender profile despite its 13mm thickness. The Miyota 8315 movement inside offers reliable timekeeping with a 60-hour power reserve.

Lastly, the Bicompax 002 Gold PVD captivates with its 1940s charm, featuring a 38mm case and a hand-wound Seagull ST1901 chronograph caliber. The black dial showcases polished numerals and a circular-brushed ring, adding depth and elegance to the design.

Affordable Luxury with a Vintage Charm

Baltic's decision to use gold PVD instead of real gold aligns with its ethos of creating accessible timepieces. The black and gold aesthetic amplifies the vintage charm, providing an elevated experience at an affordable price. The collection is set to appeal to a broad audience, with its blend of retro flair and modern craftsmanship.

Availability and Pricing

The Baltic MR01 is priced at €545, the HMS 002 at €385, and the Bicompax 002 at €565, all before taxes. The watches will start shipping in December 2023 and January 2024, respectively.
