  • Seconde teams up with Australia’s Bausele on a “bipolar” diver’s watch.
  • Based on the Bausele Sydney Diver, it features an oversized seconds hand with a shark/surfboard fin graphic depending on your perspective.
  • It is available in two variants: black dial and white dial, and comes with either a Velcro strap or a rubber strap.

Over the past few days, Romaric Andre (aka Secondo/Second/) and Christophe Hoppe (founder of Bausel) have been getting a little philosophical, teasing their first collaboration and exchanging aphorisms on social media. . “Your perspective is determined by your perspective.” “Every fin is not every fin.” “Over time, your perspective changes.” All the while, they’ve been sharing images of sharks and surfboards. . What exactly does this mean?

Guess no more. In typical Seconds/Seconds/style, Romaric transformed Bowsell’s Sydney diver with a tongue-in-cheek, very Australian motif. Very fitting for our first collaboration with an Australian watch brand. Depending on how you look at it, the pixelated fin graphics suggest something like this: An impending shark attack or a swaying surfboard, depends on your point of view, of course.

Bausele Seconde Seconde Perspective

The Bausele x Seconde/Seconde/ Perspective, as its name suggests, features an oversized double-sided second hand with the aforementioned fin graphic in the center. The fins flip every 30 seconds, and the minute hand acts like a water line or horizon. This is a simple and clever way to transform the aesthetic of Sydney’s diver, transforming it from a functionally focused dive watch to a playful piece of art.

Bausele Seconde Seconde Caseback

Of course, Bausele and Seconde/Seconde/ are a joke. “deep!” is written at the 6 o’clock position on the dial. – a casual reference to the watch’s 200 meter water resistance, certainly, but also an acknowledgment that Perspective’s naughty design has no pretense of being a serious philosophical exercise. Surprisingly, the case back is engraved with a joke.

Bowsel Second Second Deep

Like the standard Sydney Diver model, the Bausel It features one of Bausel’s trademark hollow crowns. From an Australian beach.

Bausele Seconde Seconde Model

You can choose between two dial types: black and white. The white model is as Gallic as it is Australian, with red sand on the crown forming a French tricolor, while the black dial model has a tough aesthetic that is completely at odds with the watch’s less serious nature. It exudes. Both are available with either a black Tropic-style rubber strap or a blue Velcro strap, a first for Bowsel Sydney Divers.
