Product Details

SKU Code: SUB/PVD/S/AB

This watch is one of our current military specification diver's watches in a covert black PVD finish. It features a ceramic bezel, scratch and shatter-resistant sapphire crystal with a non-reflective coating, and is powered by a 24-jewel automatic (self-winding) movement with a 41-hour power reserve. These attributes combine to create a watch that offers exceptional value for such 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 vast array of different straps and bracelets to suit your personal taste.

Why Choose Sapphire Crystal?

Many customers ask about the benefits 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 make up over 70% of our customers. When accidents occur, resulting in cracked crystals, over 90% of cases involve watches with mineral glass crystals. Even with hardened mineral crystals, they do not compare to sapphire for durability under adverse conditions.

The strength of sapphire crystals comes from 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.
