Introducing the Isotope Goutte d'Eau. A compressor style dive watch was designed to endure the hardest of Finnish winters and for diving under the ice with the Ice Freediving World Champion, Johanna Nordblad. The Goutte d'Eau ensures the toughest challenges either above or under water. The watch design takes inspiration from the teardrop lines of the 1937 Talbot-Lago Goutte d'Eau T150-C SS Coupe, which is regarded as one of the most beautiful cars in the world.

Kickstarter Campaign

Unfortunately, I'm currently backing two campaigns on Kickstarter so I just can't afford to back yet another one. I did however, think that this one was worth a shout-out on Zaltek Reviews. Trust me, if I had the cash, I'd definetly back this one too. I'd probably go for the Orange Edition with the Miyota 9015 movement.

I have spoken to José from Isotope Watches and I have been assured that I will get a Goutte d'Eau in for review at some point in the near future.

Isotope's campaign is currently running on Kickstarter (ends 16:00hrs, 2nd July 2019).
