The Diver 2 Big Crown turns the clock back to when we first started making dive watches. The aim was to create a dive watch that could be used for actual diving. The criteria included a dial that was highly legible, the bezel had to be easy to grip especially with a diving glove, it had to be rated 300m water resistant and above all be robust so it could withstand the demands of an everyday diver.
These criteria are manifested in the Diver 2 by the tall, tri-part bezel, sandwiched C3 Superluminova dial and large C3 lume filled hands. Compared to the first generation divers, this iteration adds the Big Crown which can already be seen in most of our new divers. It is also the first time a C3 Superluminova sapphire glass timing bezel insert has been added.
The bezel is constructed of 3 separate parts which allow it to be polished and brushed in different locations so it achieves more shine. The bezel is also intentionally designed to be 6mm high for ease of handling with gloves and creates a sunken pothole effect for the dial and hands. This effect is further enhanced by the sandwiched dial which sinks even further into the watch giving it additional depth. The swooping down lugs are a hallmark of our diver series and hug the wrist better to make for a much better fitting watch for smaller wrists. The entire case has been deep brushed to give the watch a more rugged finish externally while the internal rehaut has been high polished (which is rarely seen due to the amount of work needed) to mirror the elements of the dial which creates more animation and play internally.
The usual dive watch specifications are covered; 120 click anti-clockwise unidirectional rotating bezel, C3 lume on hands, dial and sapphire bezel and anti-shock protection. Our dive watches have been tested to much greater depths due to double seals on ALL openings and include a screw down crown. Only 45 hand made and finished pieces are available.
Included with the watch and matching brushed bracelet is a fitted rubber strap paired with diving extension fitted deployment buckles. If you do not wish to receive the standard bracelet or rubber strap, please specify between rubber/ leather straps and colour (chose from our strap) you prefer. Note that additional strap comes with a tang buckle and if you decide on the deployment buckle it is an additional charge as listed below.
The Diver 2 Big Crown is a progression albeit in small increments and illustrates that at moVas we are rarely satisfied with our designs and continually seek to improve them even if they are minute details and appear to be insignificant to most.
