Watch Event Guide

Manta (dive watch)

Warm, relaxed & welcoming!

Opening Talk with Stand Visitors

  • This is our Manta - a dive watch for everyday use...in a range of colours to suit your varying clothing & moods.
  • Not only that - but 10% of the profits are being donated to children & young people in need around the world...because the business is named after two brave British men, Edward & Christopher, who each saved a child's life, with one of them paying for it with his life. And there's even more behind our brand than this.

Inspired By The Manta Ray

The watch's name is inspired by the beguiling elegance, distinctive beauty and other eye-catching qualities of the Manta Ray. Because…Mantas are truly special.

They're giant, charismatic geniuses. Mantas have huge brains - the biggest of any fish - with especially developed areas for learning, problem solving and communicating. They're playful, curious and are also friendly to humans.
