James Caird Timepieces - Automatic Diver's Watches
James Caird Timepieces - Automatic Diver's Watches

This project has already launched.

When we set out to create The Endurance, our guiding principle was that your watch should be able to do whatever you want to do.  To us, this meant it should look sharp at the office, and hold up to the most rugged trail.  To do this, we’ve considered what is best about mechanical diver’s style watches -- especially their functionality and dependability -- and incorporated them into our first timepiece, The Endurance.   

Our name comes from the story of Ernest Shackleton’s Antarctic expedition, in which the lifeboat, the James Caird, famously transported the crew to safety through some of the most treacherous waters in the hemisphere.  Our watches are designed to be as timeless as the story and as durable as the lifeboat.  

Durable.  Dependable.  Functional.  Timeless.  That’s what it means to be a watch for all of life’s expeditions.


  • Flat sapphire crystal means you'll never need to worry about scratches.

  • Screw-in 22mm lug bars ensure your strap isn't going anywhere.

  • Fully automatic - never change your watch battery again.


  • Underside anti-reflective coating allows you to read the time in any light.

  • C3 luminescent applied to hour indices ensures you can check the time no matter how late it gets.

  • Highly accurate NH35 movement is hackable, so you can synchronize your watch to any other time source to ensure accuracy.  

  • 40-hour time reserve that ensures your watch will keep ticking even if you don’t wear it on the weekend.  When Monday comes, you can hand-wind your James Caird and quickly get it going again.


  • Water resistant and depth-tested to 200m;  the screw-in crown will keep your Endurance totally dry.

  • Nylon NATO strap that is easy to wear, but also easy to swap.

  • Uni-rotating bezel allows you to keep track of how long you're on the trail or out in the water.

  • 316L stainless steel case is corrosion-resistant and ergonomically designed for all-day comfort.

  • Date at 4 o’clock


  • Thoughtful touches include steel outlined indices and hands, nautical star detail on crown and caseback, and a subtle chapter ring.

  • A case to suit every wrist: 42mm diameter, 13mm thickness and curved lugs.

  • Three dial color options to suit anyone's style: tobacco, navy, and black.

  • Two finish options on the tobacco and black dials: brushed or polished.
