GRAFF ScubaGraff

By TLex Jewelery brand, Graff take a surprising new direction with their latest timepiece. The ScubaGraff, which Graff say embodies their signature design feature, a uniquely faceted case inspired by a single brilliant-cut diamond is water-resistant to 300 meters and features a lateral decompression valve. The watch houses a mechanical self-winding Graff Calibre 2 movement exclusively designed, developed and built in Switzerland for Graff with a 50-hour power reserve as shown by a power-reserve display (not sure why it only indicates up to 30hrs though).

There are two other case finishes available; one in satin finished rose gold and another DLC. This wouldn't be a Graff without some sort of precious stone; a triangular-cut diamond (emerald on gold version) has been set at the 12 o' clock dial marker as well as a diamond-tipped crown. The tentacle detailing on the caseback and divers extension is pretty cool, not sure if I'd take it diving though, but I'd certainly wear it in the bathtub!



From GRAFF Graff proudly introduces a new diving watch for men. This newly released model incorporates the mechanical self-winding Graff Calibre 2 movement exclusively designed, developed and built in Switzerland for Graff and displays a comfortable 50-hour power reserve. The back of the satin-finished rose gold versions have been expertly fire enamelled and all editions, including the black DLC, are finely hand engraved with an octopus motif that is also reflected on the elaborate folding clasp of the strap.

The hands and hour markers are enhanced with luminor ensuring optimal readability, and a decompression valve on the case side and 30-minute countdown indicator help divers manage their remaining dive time and oxygen level. Guaranteed water-resistant to 300 metres (1,000 ft), ScubaGraff is a diver's dream and enough to make any devotee of fine watchmaking want to take the plunge.
