£325.00 GBP


Product Details


This military specification diver's watch, finished in covert black PVD, is one of our current high-performance models. It features a ceramic bezel and a non-reflective, shatter, and scratch-resistant sapphire crystal. Powered by an automatic (self-winding) 24-jewel movement with a 41-hour power reserve, this watch offers exceptional value for its high specification.

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

This watch uses the standard 20mm NATO strap, providing access to a wide array of different straps to suit your personal taste.

Why Choose Sapphire Crystal?

Many customers inquire about the benefits of sapphire crystal over standard mineral crystal. Synthetic sapphire is the best material for watch crystals due to its exceptional 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 hardened mineral crystals do not compare to sapphire for durability under adverse conditions.

Sapphire crystals are strong because they undergo a heat-treatment process that removes 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. Despite its higher cost, sapphire crystal is typically found only in higher-end watches.
