Upgrades/Modifications being considered

Quick update: We are considering some last minute upgraded options for the Ocean Diver to improve its functionality and appeal to serious dive watch fans.
  • Domed anti-reflective crystal
  • 44mm case
  • 22mm lug width
  • Solid screw in lug bars
  • Bead blasted or brushed finish
  • Seiko LumiBrite luminous material
Here's how the new upgrades might look. Not a significant change but some nice additional touches! These have not been confirmed, naturally cost and time are two major factors :)

Brian, I love your watch, I can't afford a IWC Aquatimer or similar, and your watch looks fantastic. When can I order it, and what is the price ? Still 167 € ?

Best regards, Ben

Hi Ben, thanks for reading my blog and leaving a comment. I'm glad to hear you like the watch!

The target date for the watch to be available is in November of this year.

It will be made available for purchase online and can be shipped anywhere in the world.

The price hasn't changed as far as I am aware, at worst there may be a variance of one or two Euros at most.

The manufacturer is currently tooling up to make the watches, so production will soon be in full swing. I'll be posting updates here, so check in for the latest information.

Thanks again!

Ok brilliant,

do you have any information on the movement ? I suppose it won't be an ETA at that price, but if it is reliable and can be adjusted to run to a good tolerance I don't really care what it is.

Congratulations anyway, very nice design, and the satisfaction that I won't have the same watch as the office colleagues.

Any chance you can keep it to 42 mm ?

I love it anyway. Ben
