Are there dolphins in the Baltic Sea? Well, if we take into account wearing the Błonie Delfin watch on your wrist while swimming in the Baltic, then the answer is yes. While dolphins are not commonly found in the Baltic Sea, there is a playful connection to the name "Delfin" in the Błonie Delfin watch collection as the Polish word "Delfin" translates to "dolphin" in English.

What catches the eye first when looking at Błonie Delfin watches is their distinctive NATO textile straps. Available in navy blue, black, gold, and red-navy-grey stripes, these straps offer a striking visual appeal. Thanks to this, the watches are ideal for the summer season — they ensure utmost comfort and are easy to clean.
The textured dial evokes the undulating waves of the sea. Plus, the image of the dolphin is placed at six o'clock. While the stick indices are predominant, the Arabic numerals are displayed at the 12 and 6 o'clock. To enhance visibility, both the hands and indices are coated with fluorescent paint. Furthermore, the dial is protected by a double convex mineral glass.
Made of high-quality stainless steel in all versions, the 42 mm case of the Błonie Delfin watch maintains a sleek and round design. The caseback of the watch boasts an exquisite dolphin image. The timepiece houses a reliable Japanese Miyota 2035 quartz movement, powered by a battery with a service life of approximately 3 years. With a water resistance of 50 metres, the watch can withstand major splashes.
The Błonie factory began producing wristwatches as early as the second half of the 1950s. Although its initial career was relatively short-lived, the Blonie factory successfully launched models that have become iconic over time. In fact, they continue to serve as a source of inspiration for today's creators of the brand, which was reactivated in 2014.
The Delfin watch was no different. Its design is inspired by a 20th-century timepiece. The manufacturer's intention was to create a watch that pays homage to retro dive watches while incorporating distinctive elements unique to Błonie watches, e.g. the shape of the hour and minute hands and the layout and shape of the hand-applied indices.
In addition to its dedication to classic craftsmanship and traditional watchmaking, Błonie also preserves Polish heritage and history. As an integral part of this heritage, the Baltic Sea holds great significance for the brand. Consequently, Błonie has chosen to support the MARE Foundation, an organisation committed to the conservation of the Baltic Sea. For each Błonie Delfin watch sold, the company will donate PLN 100 to the statutory goals of the foundation. Together we can do some good for the sea!
