Design

At Draken, we pride ourselves in creating pieces with an original design language. Our first model, the Tugela, set the foundation for our case design, with its tapered sides inspired by the Protea flower. Its domed crystal sapphire merges with the bezel creating a distinct profile.


Functionality

The multi-layered dial of the Benguela features applied bead-blasted indices mirroring the case finish, large cut-out luminous indices (sandwich effect), makes for a highly legible dial, both day and night.


Durability

We wanted the Benguela to be over-engineered. If we built it to withstand ridiculous extremes, it’ll be able to cope with a little 4-day hike in the bush. With sapphire crystal, 500m water resistance, Viton gaskets, and two workhorse movement options, you won’t have to think twice about where you go with the Benguela.


Versatility

Each Benguela will come with a bracelet AND a natural rubber dive strap, both featuring quick-release pins to make strap changing a breeze. Optional leather straps are available for a more casual look.
