Launched in December 2011, the SparrowHawk II from Techné met with great success. Thirty-eight months later, the brand unveils a new version that switches between two mechanisms designed 38 miles on opposite sides of the Tokyo Bay in Japan. Designed for outdoors enthusiasts, the SparrowHawk is assembled with a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal and a surgical 316L steel case water-resistant to 10 bar. The 2011 version featured a 3 year quartz chronograph module designed by Seiko Instruments from Chiba, Japan. To increase time between battery changes, Techné switched to a 5 year quartz chronograph module designed by the Citizen Group from Nishitokyo, Japan. When subjected to shocks beyond the tested limit, the Miyota 0S20’s circuitry prevents further damage and allows the wearer to re-calibrated the hands, even in the most remote locations of the planet. This collection is available in brushed finishing and matte black PVD. Prices range from USD 305 on British 66-13 military straps to USD 335 on skin-friendly rubber straps. The SparrowHawk II can be purchased from selected Techné resellers.
