Combining Australian precision craftsmanship, advanced technology and Swiss-made excellence, this is a watch built to work in.


In the challenging field of underground mining, where precision and durability are essential, miners find themselves looking to Adina. The Adina Underground Mining Watch is known around the world for its reliability and functionality. With cutting-edge features and robust construction, it’s easy to see why this is a go-to watch in the mining industry.


Adina’s humble beginnings


In 1971, watchmaker Robert ‘Bob’ Menzies embarked on a dream – to craft a watch that could endure the rigorous challenges of the Australian lifestyle. This vision expanded in the early 2000s when he extended his focus to cater to the mining sector. The result was a distinctive watch engineered to thrive in the harsh conditions of mines across Australia.

Fast forward to today, and Bob’s son, Grant Menzies, continues the legacy of high-quality Australian watchmaking. Adina’s highly specialised team strategically sources cutting-edge components from around the world, which are meticulously assembled, tested and calibrated in their Brisbane factory. Annually, the company produces over 30,000 artisan watches, accessible through more than 300 retail outlets across Australia.




Impeccable construction


The first thing you notice about the Adina Underground Mining Watch is its blend of toughness and elegance. Crafted from cold-stamped stainless steel, it is well-equipped with a comfortable and strong bracelet, while also staying protected by a highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. The watch can endure everything from impacts to abrasions, while still maintaining a touch of luxury.

Swiss movements are synonymous with excellence in the watchmaking world. At the heart of the watch is the Swiss-made Ronda R-150 movement, known for its precision and reliability.

Mining environments, by nature, are unpredictable, which is why the Adina Underground Mining Watch is designed with a water resistance of up to 100 metres – whether you’re working in damp tunnels or experience unexpected water encounters, it offers unparalleled water and dust protection.

Not only is it fantastic to look at, the watch is also exceptionally easy to use. It features a bold 7mm crown, facilitating quick and efficient adjustments even with gloved hands. The luminous dial ensures readability in low-light conditions, catering to the practical needs of navigating dimly lit tunnels or working during the night shift.


The test of time


As a second-generation watchmaking house based in Brisbane, Adina prides itself on the artistry and precision embedded in each timepiece. The Underground Mining Watch, like all Adina watches, is meticulously handcrafted, showcasing Adina’s commitment to quality and attention to detail.

For those seeking a watch that withstands the challenges of underground mining while exuding a blend of elegance and precision, the Adina Underground Mining Watch stands as a testament to craftsmanship and reliability.
