If you’re searching for the purest iteration of the Dune Collection, look no further than the C65 Dune Automatic.
Of the three-watch series, the entry-level Automatic has everything the in-the-know watch lover needs: a perfectly proportioned dial, a handset that delivers precision with every tick and a generous amount of lume for timekeeping after-dark.
The dial comes in four colours: Black Sand, Marine Blue, Beachgrass and White Sand. The first three (all with a ‘sunray’ texture) are polished so they shimmer in the light, while the White Sand dial boasts a subtle matte finish.
The ultra-legible design is accentuated by the twin-flags logo at 12 o’clock and a date window at 6. Both the hour markers and handset are deep-filled with Super-LumiNova® Light Old Radium BL Grade X1 that delivers legibility in even the gloomiest of conditions.
The glass box sapphire crystal adds a vintage look that recalls sports watches of the 1960s and ’70s. Meanwhile, the 38mm case is ideal for any wrist, and boasts an exhibition back which lets you see the movement inside, including the elaboré-finished rotor – embellished with the twin flags pattern. The retro feel continues with the sleek fixed bezel.
Flexibility plays a big part, too. This C65 Dune is made for strap-swapping: a webbing or #tide strap adds a casual look, leather gives a subtle aged appearance, while a steel bracelet turns it into a retro-style business timepiece. And thanks to our quick-release system, you can swap straps in moments.
Power comes courtesy of the Sellita SW200-1, while water-resistance of 150m, makes it as effective underwater as it is on land.

An update on the classic Sellita SW200, this Swiss-made self-winding movement is known for its accuracy and reliability.
The 26-jewel movement boasts a date wheel, a 4Hz frequency (equating to a smooth eight ticks per second) and a 38-hour power reserve. It also has an in-built anti-shock system to maintain accuracy when faced with any sudden jolts.
What the press say
about the C65 Dune
“The use of Christopher Ward’s excellent Light-catcherTM case finishing, which highlights unexpected bevels and undercuts in the complex case geometry adds a touch of elegance to each watch.”
– Zach Kazan
Find your shade
As well as being ultra-legible, the dial comes in a choice of four colours: Black Sand, Marine Blue, Beachgrass and White Sand. So you’ll always find a model to suit you.
A no-compromise crystal
If you want to truly replicate the look of a 1970s sports watch, you need a glass box crystal. It delivers that telltale ‘wobble’ when viewed from the side.
Lume and legibility
When it’s dark, lume matters. That’s why the handset – including that ‘lollipop’ seconds hand – and hour markers have been deep-filled with Super-LumiNova® Old Radium BL Grade X.
