Description

Swiss Super-LumiNova: We have set the bar high on the amount of luminescence you can expect from our pieces and the ARK easily reaches that bar. With 20 layers of BL10 X1 Grade Super-LumiNova your watch will easily glow through the night.

Titanium Case Thickness: At just 8.5mm thick, the SWC ARK has an incredibly slim profile. The added fact that it weighs only 34grams on the strap will have you forgetting you have it on.

AR Coating: With 16 layers of AR coating legibility will never be an issue under any lighting conditions. We have also added a coating of sapphire on top of the AR to further help the durability of the AR layering.

Water Resistance: A screw down crown give the SWC ARK 100 meters or water resistance.

Straps: Each watch will come with two nylon velcro straps.

    This watch surprised me. The lume is remarkable. When unpackaging it I seriously thought the crystal had come off in transit. I have never seen a watch crystal so clear. The 16 layers of antireflective coating has an effect I have never experienced before, and I am an avid watch enthusiast with well over 50 timepieces. I own several field watches, but this one will no doubt be my go-to timepiece for camping, trekking or nighttime activities. The width, depth and lug to lug will suit practically any wrist but you won’t sacrifice any visibility since the dial fills up all but a few millimeters of the dial surface. I am very impressed. I am now looking keenly at the chronograph!

    Absolutely awesome watch, full titanium case and back, sapphire crystal, Swiss made, best loom in the industry, light in weight, perfect fit & finish, well presented, all for only $199, what’s there not to like? Buy it, trust me you won’t regret it!

    I purchased this watch for my Wife. The size is perfect for a slender wrist and the strap works well for her.
    She wanted the accuracy, but didnt hold with maintaining the charge within an automatic movement.
    We were both mighty impressed with this watch when it arrived.
    The size and weight are super, while providing the robustness of a field watch.

    (Needless to say, I am golden atm in her eyes, a true “home run” – thanks to SWC ! ).

    I first saw a review of the SWC Ark on Will Duncan’s ‘Zaltek reviews’ and he was full of high praise and more or less urged who would ever listen to snap on up!…I ordered mine a few days before Christmas (2021) and was surprised to see it turn up in the UK a day or so before the new year…A well made with high quality materials at such a ridiculous price and wrapped in a lovely brown leather watch wallet with an additional strap.It is the thinnest watch I own and wouldn’t even know it was on my wrist,a gorgeous little thing to look at and robust as I dropped it and thought ‘Oh no’ but no damage or marks to the crystal…Top marks to the SWC family who provide a personal service and stunning time pieces.

    I bought two ARKs as I couldn’t decide on which colour to get. I have to say they are both GREAT! I genuinely love every design decision SWC have made here. Some of my favourite things are the size, they are totally wearable, the weight is so light, the titanium is a lovely brownish grey and non reflective, which is far more interesting than shiny steel. The hands and lume are also extremely well done. The height of the watch is so thin, I love not feeling it on my wrist then looking down and saying, ‘oh, hello mate!’ Overall the quality of these watches is really very, very impressive, I’m looking at the dial under a loupe and the elements are flawless. My big name brands are in my watch box yelling out ‘don’t forget about us!’ Well, sadly they have been forgotten whilst I enjoy this truly stunning little watch, I certainly will get the big brother to the ARK, the Bunker as the value for money the SWC give you is probably unsurpassed, I love what SWC are doing and am now a huge fan! Whether you’re a watch collector or new to watches these friendly little ARKs are a must have!

    The ARK won me over. My intention was to make a purchase based on purely practical reasons, but I ended up so pleased with it.
    My main goal was to detox from smart watches. I wanted a dumb watch and had very little requirements – it had to be simple without complications, quartz or solar powered – no fancy mechanics, durable, lightweight, unobtrusive, and most importantly – READABLE.
    The usual suspects in the industry do offer several options, but I found them all uninspiring. Then I came across the ARK, and ordered one immediately. Not only does it exceed my requirements, it does so while being very honestly priced. This brand deserves my business.
    The ARK came in a nice pouch and an extra grayish strap, which I like better than the one the watch came on. More importantly, it came with a personal handwritten note which meant a lot to me. 
    The whole idea was to put the watch on and forget it was there, but a few days with it on the wrist made me realize how captivating it is. Is it its rugged simplicity? its unobtrusiveness? its fantastic lume and absolute no glare readability? Actually, it’s everything at once. Whoever designed this watch made an amazing job, where really less is more. Not one detail was spared to make the ARK an amazing wear, gracefully handsome, beautifully practical. 
    I do have one gripe, but it has to do with my own eyesight. This watch has the best lume of any watch I have ever owned, and I’m a sucker for Superluminova, H3 etc. However, my eyes take some time to focus on the hands at night. More lume on the hands would have helped me, but there’s only so much hand size you can have on a 38mm watch. This issue could affect me only for all I know. No matter – by now I just wear my ARK 24/7 and like it every time I check the time, which is, too often.
    My advice, just get one. No review renders the feeling of actually wearing it.
