NTH? Janis Trading? Who, or what, is that? If you were not aware, Janis Trading is actually a brand you are probably already familiar with – they were formerly known as as Lew & Huey. Now, that is a name that should be familiar to most of you (and if it isn’t, check out our interview with brand creator Chris Vail). As part of the rebranding, the Janis Trading NTH Subs are a completely new line that will hit the streets soon, and we recently got to spend some quality time with a pair from the new lineup, which we first brought you word of back in the spring.
Now, anyone taking a look at the NTH Sub lineup is instantly going to see the obvious cues to watches of the past. What you might not be as aware of is that these are not simply taking inspiration from the Rolex watches of the past. Instead, these draw from the original military specs that brought us watches like the Rolex Submariner, and the Omega models that preceded the crowned brand in the military contracts. In other words, these are a mix of different styles, bringing things together in different ways. And, of course, Vail being Vail, he had to tweak the designs a bit, all while bringing the high-quality materials to the table at his affordable price points.
