£375.00 GBP


Product Details


This military specification diver's watch in a covert black PVD finish is one of our current models, featuring a ceramic bezel and a scratch and shatter-resistant sapphire crystal with a non-reflective coating. It is powered by an automatic (self-winding) 24-jewel movement with a 41-hour power reserve, offering exceptional value for a high-specification timepiece.

The special covert matte black non-reflective PVD finish used for this watch is often specified in military contracts for many special forces units, anti-terrorist units, and various covert operations. The PVD process creates the color through a special chemical plating process, which is vastly superior to the painted finish used on some lower-quality watches that can easily fade or rub off. This PVD process alters the color of the steel at a molecular level, ensuring it does not deteriorate even during heavy usage, although it can be damaged if the case is gouged by a piece of metal or worn down by continuous heavy abrasion against rocks.

This watch uses the same 20mm lug size as many other military diver's watches, providing access to a wide array of different straps and bracelets to suit your personal taste.

Benefits of Sapphire Crystal

Many customers inquire about the advantages of sapphire crystal over standard mineral crystal. Synthetic sapphire is the best material for watch crystals due to its strength, shatter resistance, and scratch resistance. These characteristics make it ideal for military and security personnel, police officers, and individuals with active outdoor lifestyles, who comprise over 70% of our customers. When accidents result in cracked crystals, over 90% involve watches with mineral glass crystals. Even with hardened mineral crystals, they do not compare to sapphire for durability under adverse conditions.

Sapphire crystals are strong because the sapphire glass is heat-treated to remove internal stresses, which can cause weakness. After manufacturing, the sapphire glass is made into watch crystals, and two layers of anti-reflective coating are applied. Interestingly, sapphire crystal is now used on the latest iPhones. Consequently, due to its higher cost, sapphire crystal is typically used only in higher-end watches.
