When i first took this watch out of its package i was suprised by the weight of it. This feels and looks like a serious watch. Solid steel case, nice looking dial, sapphire and on this model a comfortable rubber strap. Measuring 45 mm in diameter its a big case, but therefore with a great readability. We have got the blue model. It also comes in a black edition. So Dial and bezel are blue giving it a really sporty look. Although its a rather big case it suits very comfortable on the wrist even smaller ones. The lugs are shaped in an oval way giving it a organic shape underneath the bezel.
The Bezel has a 60 min indicated on in. It has the same colour blue as the dial. Of course it can only be set one way, like it should. You dont want to move the bezel the wrong way when you’re in the water. Stainless steel is used for the bezel. Providing a good grip it is even well managed under the water surface.
The crown is a screw locked down. The chronograph pushers have an odd shape and they seem to stand out, but because of this shape they can even be handled when wearing gloves.
The finishing of the case is really well done. A good balance between brushed and high polished parts. The case looks great on rubber, but also on the Mesh stainless steel bracelet.
Both front and back have coated sapphire which give a good view on either de dial or the movement. The dial has the date setup on 6 o’clock. On 3 o’clock the small seconds chronograph dial and on the 9 0’clock the minutes.
The indexes and hands are provided with a Super Luminova which really shines bright. This gives the user a great readability at night and in deeper water. Also the zero marker on the bezel is handles with this Super Luminova, leaving no doubt in when times up and the diver must be ready to go back to the surface.
