NFW ViperFish (first look)

From NFW We just finished the case engineering on this new design on Monday night. So, I now feel safe in saying that what you'll see here is how it will look. The driving theme here was that this should be a "Real" dive watch, a mean & nasty tool of a watch. So, that's how it's designed. I've been working on this for many months, refining the design and working thru the engineering of every surface, edge, and corner.



CASE CONSTRUCTION
The case is constructed in 3 layers, and are connected via the 4 'screw barrels' that protrude muscularly from the sides of the case: 2 on the left side and 2 on the right which are integrated into the crown protectors.




MOVEMENTS
Automatic: Miyota 821A (the new, nicely decorated version of the very dependable 8215)


Chronograph: Miyota OS60 professional-grade quartz chrono (screw-locked chrono pushers)
-

Size: 48mm (excluding the crown and screw barrels) x 18.5mm height
- crystal: 5mm thick sapphire, with anti-reflective coating.

Triple layer SuperLuminova on skeletonized hands, dial markers and bezel.


Water-resistance 300meters / 1000ft




Will come with BOTH the screwed-link bracelet (with diver extension clasp) and the fitted rubber strap.

Will pass ISO 6425 test standards to be considered a 'real' dive watch (this will NOT be a 'fashion' dive watch!)


Now that you know a little bit more about it, here's what it looks like!
