YOUR POWER TO DECIDE
The Maelstrom MBW Edition’s colorway will be selected by the Microbrand Watches group community (3 choose 1). This engagement is important as this is a watch that celebrates the support of every member, and everyone should have a part to play in its creation. The selection will be done via a poll in the Microbrand Watches Facebook group.
The Mitch Mason Maelstrom is designed and built to be a valiant and versatile Companion. It is a contemporary interpretation of vintage Super Compressor Dive watches. It sports an automatic movement, a 300m water resistance with Dual screw-down crowns, and a double-domed sapphire crystal boasting 10 layers of anti-reflective coating.

The internal rotating bezel sports a second time-zone function, which makes it extremely versatile for modern use. Being located under the watch crystal, apart from being permanently protected, it gives the watch a sense of depth and texture while maintaining an impressive 300m water resistance.
BEAUTY IN SYMMETRY
The dial of the Maelstrom is designed to be clean and highly legible. It retains Mitch Mason's signature dial profile, with elongated cardinal hour markers and sandwiched 12, 3 and 6 hour numerals. The dial sports a sunburst effect that dances in different lighting conditions.
The primary crown and 9 o’clock numeral on the dial incorporate the Microbrand Watches group logo. This logo cleverly deconstructs Microbrand Watches into a watch case with a symbol of the micro prefix (µ) of the metric system, from the Greek alphabet.
The date window is perfectly positioned on the dial, with date wheels color matched. With such a seamless integration, the date complication is only noticeable when required.
