Here’s where the Automatica One steps up, while other watches fall short:

  • It’s durable, rugged and stylish, so it’s great for everyday wear in the office, yet can withstand depths of up to 660 feet.

  • It’s powered by the movement of your wrist, not a battery- so you’ll never have to worry about replacing one.

  • The Automatica One is incredibly accurate with a Miyota Cal. No. 8217 mechanical movement featuring 21 jewels for the most accurate timing.

  • Every Automatica One is custom designed from scratch, including custom molding for every piece that houses the movement.

At the heart of the Automatica One is a precision engineered Miyota Cal. No. 8217 mechanical movement featuring 21 jewels, a 21600 bph sweeping second hand, and a uni-directional self-winding mechanism powered by the movement of your wrist.

The Automatica One sapphire glass screw back case allows you to peer into the movement and observe the absolute precision of the gears, springs, and jewels working in perfect harmony.

Sapphire glass is created by crystallizing corundum, or aluminum oxide, at temperatures of 4000° F and then molding the mixture into clear disks. These disks are then machined to the proper crystal size, polished, and perfectly fit to the watch case. The final sapphire product rates a 9/10 on the Mohs hardness scale, making the watch crystal extremely difficult to scratch. Most watches today are built with mineral glass that rates a 5/10 on the Mohs hardness scale; the only material tougher than sapphire is diamond, rating a perfect 10/10 Mohs. The domed surface of the sapphire crystal is designed to increase impact resistance and works much like an archway, spreading any potential impact pressure out to the edges rather than being focused in one spot.

Each assembled watch case is successfully tested waterproof to 20 atmospheres (660 feet) before it gets the stamp of approval from our quality assurance team. A waterproof resistance rating is the ultimate test of how well-sealed a watch is against outside elements. Most watches today are rated 3-5 ATM water resistant, making them fragile and barely suitable to wear in the shower.

The Automatica One is a true dive watch that will handle ANY situation you put yourself in, including being hundreds of feet underwater.

The Automatica One’s custom 43mm case is machined from grade 316L stainless steel. This surgical grade metal contains extremely low carbon content and is incredibly resistant to corrosion from seawater, acidic fluids, and other harmful materials you may encounter. 316L is also anti-magnetic in all conditions, unlike most general-use stainless steels.

A sandwich dial provides you with two distinct layers; a lower layer that is painted luminous and the upper custom die-cut layer that not only gives a clean style, but introduces a 3D effect that adds a unique layer of depth to your timepiece.

The Automatica One’s dual layer sandwich dial houses a 24-hour sub-dial. The sub-dial provides a perfect quick reference for the seasoned traveler who frequents regions of the world where the 24-hour clock is dominant.

Mansfield watches are built to last. We stand behind the quality of our products; all of them come with a 2 year manufacturer’s warranty. This means that if there is any internal failure or any failure resulting from improper assembly on our end we will replace or repair the watch free of charge.

As you can read, the Automatica One is no copy cat in the already bust world of time pieces. This watch will handle your toughest days in the water while also looking completely dialed for an elegant dinner. As our adventures adapt to our needs and wants so should our gear!
