The Blue Ocean

From Votum -

Another really cool piece from Votum.
While I certainly appreciate that there are a lot of very nice looking so-called field or what are sometimes referred to as "Unitas Style" (meaning a watch of approximately 40 mm with a Unitas hand-winding movement and (usually) a fairly plain dial, and marketed as a "larger dress" watch.  But then, every so often a brand thinks a wee-bit outside of the watch box.

It's almost as if the folks from Votum climbed inside of my skull and grabbed two ideas that I love - 
1.  Large legible hand-wound 
2. Slightly nautical and sporty
