Announcing the Tidewater

McDowell Time is proud to announce our next watch:


Tidewater Automatic


The Tidewater 

Named after the waters that feed into the Chesapeake Bay, The Tidewater marks our first dive watch.  We designed the Tidewater to be an extremely capable diver that has a clean & classic design.  We realize the 200 meter depth rating might be a bit overkill for everyday needs, but with it's commanding wrist presence we expect the Tidewater to see plenty of wrist-time.



Tidewater Specs:

  • 316L Stainless Steel Case
  • Ceramic Bezel
  • Raised Hour Markers
  • C3 Superluminova
  • Sellita SW200 Automatic Movement (Swiss)
  • 200 Meter Water Resistance
  • 42mm Case Width
  • 13mm Case Thickness
  • 22mm Lug Width
  • Screw Down Crown
  • Brushed or Polished Finish

    Movement Specs: 

    • Swiss Made
    • Automatic Winding
    • Second Hacking
    • 38 Hour Power Reserve
    • 26 Jewels
    • 28,800 beats per hour
    • Industry Workhorse


    Purchase Information

    We are currently taking pre-orders via our new partnership with ZEW BOX.  The Tidewater is an Executive Club Member watch and is currently available for $329 with the promo code listed below.  ZEW BOX is allowing us to offer our customers an amazing discount on this club.



    ZEW BOX Partnership

    We are excited to share how you can purchase the Tidewater at the lowest price possible.  In the past, McDowell Time has used Kickstarter to release new watches.  The crowdfunding platform allowed us to reach a large audience and generate enough backers to fund our watch projects.  Being a small business, it was critical for us to gain the up-front capital needed so that we could start building watches.

    We are grateful for the success we've had on Kickstarter and our company would not be possible without crowdfunding.  However we also realize times have changed and we are ready to move on past Kickstarter.  We have seen the Kickstarter market become increasingly saturated with many other substandard watches, and frankly we don't want to be lumped into the stigma of "just another Kickstater watch". 


    Why Join ZEW BOX?

    The Tidewater will never be sold for less than the ZEW BOX price.  Similar to Kickstarter crowdfunding, the large number of ZEW BOX members allows us to produce a larger quantity of watches, and thus keep our cost down.
