So finely executed is the vapour blasted dark gunmetal finish on this ‘102 model that it almost looks ceramic. The precision of the case finishing is so beautifully highlighted with highly detailed ‘pops’ of gloss that lift it to another level. The overall effect is a watch that looks ready for duty but is so easy on the eye and on the wrist.
The highlights don’t start and end with the case finishing though. The scratch resistant ceramic bezel insert with flush, highly lumed batons and numerals allow clear low 'viz’ timing, whilst perfectly framing the dial and box profile sapphire crystal that gently rises into a shallow dome. It’s the perfect profile to compliment the classic dive title.
The two layer sandwich dial of this model is discreet with a smooth black central lower layer framed by a subtle chamfer just outside the micro markers. Matt tungsten coloured hands with a warm sand lume colour infill, command just the right amount of attention from the eye, set against the clarity of the ultra bold dial markers. Both glow for up to 8 hours after a good ‘charge’ in daylight for great visibility on all conditions.
The basket weave texture on the outer surface of the fitted black rubber strap suits this watch so well, sitting flush against the matt case with a subtle border embossed into the rubber to frame the join between the two materials just so. The textured surface is created using elements from the EB logo, which is repeated, then embossed into the soft rubber surface. The rubber strap creation has a story all of its own, with inner breather lines moulded from hand drawn lines and ropes that we see daily in our boat yard HQ. It’s fitted with functional, handsome split deployant buckle with a raised EB shield who’s outer edge is highly polished to match the case highlights. Take a look at the Instruction tab for how to custom fit your strap to you.
The basket weave continues as the primary background detail on the compressor case back, framing the raised and polished shield with a subtle matt texture. If you haven’t handled one of our watches, the case back is perfectly indicative of the detail we go to in everything we do; resolved, well considered, highly functional and virtually never seen by anyone other than you, but you’ll know.
