Preview: Feynman Cove Diver

If you haven't heard of Feynman Watches, it's likely because we haven't covered them (we're very important and influential). The brand released its first watch, aptly named the Feynman One, in 2018 through a successful Kickstarter campaign. A hand-wound dress-ish watch featuring a stunning layered dial, I still regret not getting a chance to review one (they are still available in four colors). But fortune favors the watch nerd, and Feynman is about to launch their second watch, the Cove diver, which we will be featuring for review in a few weeks. But the Kickstarter is about to launch, so we wanted to let you know about it before you miss out on early pricing.

The Cove will have a very similar dial layout to the Feynman One, featuring a layered design with additional sectoring on the colored dial ring. Plus, as you'd expect from a diver, they've integrated a bidirectional internal bezel, which will be fully lumed. In fact, everything but the colored dial ring will be lumed: hands, seconds track, hours track, bezel--even the wave pattern on the interior circle.

I quite like the case, with its fluid lines and dual compressor-style crown setup. The finishing appears to be top-notch, and with a case diameter of 40mm and height of under 13mm, it's sure to wear well, too. Ticking inside is a top grade (that means regulated within COSC limits) automatic ETA 2895--the subsecond iteration of the venerable 2894.

The specs and design make for a very unique diver. I'm dying to try this out, and should have a full hands-on review by the end of March, maybe even before the campaign ends! I'll dive deeper into the nitty-gritty, have my usual long-winded gripes, and take some more realistic photos for you. In the meantime, the campaign is now live on Kickstarter, with the watch available as low as $670 (over 40% off retail) for those who get in early.
