March 25, 2017: HELM Vanuatu Production Update
The next production of the HELM Vanuatu is well underway, and a limited quantity will soon be available for pre-order. One significant design change with this production is that the bezel is now interchangeable, with two options: A black PVD bezel with white markings (as per previous production) or a new brushed silver option with black markings. Both bezels will also be available separately for $25.00 each (when purchased with a watch) or $35.00 each (when purchased alone). Below are a few photos of a prototype of the silver bezel option. The production bezel will be nearly identical to the prototype except that the lumed triangle will be slightly smaller, and will include an engraved black outline.

We're happy to announce that production of the 2nd generation Vanuatu is officially underway and should be completed by mid-August! The second generation features several significant spec improvements, including: A redesigned bezel ratcheting mechanism to ensure a firm, smoothly ratcheting bezel without play; filled rather than solid hands and Super-LuminNova BGW9 pigment for considerably brighter luminous output on the dial, hands and bezel; a stamped rather than etched caseback; higher profile crown teeth for better grip; larger diameter spring bars (2.0 mm); a DuPont Viton caseback gasket and single-sided bracelet screw pins. The first 100 pieces will be available at special introductory pricing. For more details, please visit the Vanuatu product page.
