Sea Quartz 30 [42mm] - Black
The Original Magnum P.I. Watch
In the early 1980’s, CBS launched the TV series Magnum PI. Set in Hawaii, it starred Tom Selleck. The series consistently ranked in the top 20 U.S. television programs for several years, finishing as high as number 3 for the 1982–83 season. And the watch that Tom Selleck wore for the first 3 seasons? Of course, it was the original Chronosport Sea Quartz 30.
Authentic History, Better Performance
The Sea Quartz 30 models from the 1980’s have built an almost cult-like following with Magnum fans, divers, and watch fanatics. To make them proud, we recreated the Sea Quartz 30 as closely as possible to the original. Our historical connection to Chronosport meant we could send genuine cases, dials, hands, and bezels directly to our factories so they could analyze and match the design. Of course, we wanted to make some key improvements. The dial, hands, and bezel now feature C3 Super-LumiNova for vastly improved lume performance over the original. The original watch also featured a mineral bezel and crystal, which has been replaced with scratchproof sapphire for unmatched durability. What we didn’t change is the iconic design.
Classic dive watch, with distinctive look, I will be a regular buyer of your watches. I am a collector of new and retro watches.
Glad I bought it

Great watch @ great price!
Very happy with this purchase- nicely done!
A very Nice Watch
I was quite excited to see this watch come out. I placed an order for the first pre-order batch and could hardly wait it for it to arrive to me. When it arrived I was stunned as there is a lot of watches that look good in pictures in ads but look like **** in person. This watch looked even better in person then in the pics. The watch is not too big on the wrist and with its almost flat case back, it sits low on the wrist and there were times that I did not know I was wearing a watch until I looked down at it. The lume is good. It is not Seiko diver super bright lume but it will get you though a good part of the night with its lume. I think this is one of those watches that everybody needs to have. It is highly wearable and you can put it down and pick it up a week later and not need to set the time like an automatic watch. Mine has been bang on with the atomic clock since I set it the day i got it in Feb.
Pleased as punch with purchase!
Extremely pleased with the process, the price, the service and the watch. I would have liked to be the owner of one of the original Sea Quartz Chronosport pieces, but am not, and cannot afford what they are bringing now, but this Momentum "tribute" watch is like a dream come true for me. It looks, feels and performs exactly like the original, and in fact IS a Momentum "original"....very happy with the purchase, glad I was able to get in on the "pre-sale" and have ordered the steel band which the manufacturers have graciously made available to purchasers of the first run of time pieces, also at a "special" price. Thank you for making this available, and affordable for all us working class guys! Short version....love this watch!
