By TLex It's a pretty good looking watch, that's why I posted it. But I wouldn't go so far as to say " it's making a spectacular debut in the world of dive watches " ! Rodolphe if your reading this, please consider upping the depth rating from 50m to at least 200m on any future watches in your collection with the name ' diver '.
From Rodolphe With the PANINARO DIVER AUTOMATIC, RODOLPHE is making a spectacular debut in the world of divers watches. It may seem difficult to innovate in a category in which all watches are similar, but RODOLPHE has created an impressive and powerful object, of high technical quality on which it has conferred an attractive and agreeable personality, both visual and for the wearer.
The alliance of materials used to manufacture the case (middle in black PVD surmounted by a steel bezel, bracelet featuring alternating links in these two materials) highlights the quality and precision of the design. The two crowns add balance to the entire watch, while the internal turning bezel, the hands of impressive size and press-fitted indexes on the galvanic dial are a reminder of this model’s sporty vocation.
