TOURBY Lawless DIVER

By TLex Introducing the new TOURBY Lawless DIVER. Its stainless steel case measures 45.5mm x 16mm. It has a water-resistance of 500m and is available in either a stainless steel or black PVD finish. There are two bezel types; one with an elapsed dive time scale in 5 minute increments and one with a 12 hour marker only.



The bezel has some good height to it and the downwardly curving lug horns should make it a comfortable wear on the wrist. The caseback features a fairly ornate engraving, which depicts Neptune, the Roman god of the sea on his chariot, trident in hand and being pulled through the waves by his horse. An inscription above reads ‘Imperium Neptuni Regis’. The watch is also fitted with a domed sapphire crystal.



The Lawless DIVER will house an ETA 2824-2, but with an option to upgrade to a Top Grade 2824-2 chronometer adjusted to 5 positions for an additional 359€ / 300€ (ex VAT). Further options include: 5X dials with differing markers, which includes the one shown plus a further 4 dials below (the one with the Arabic numerals is uncertain). There will be 4X strap (custom TOURBY rubber, leather, mesh or NATO), 2X buckle (standard or divers deployment). In the first run of watches only black dials will be offered with MOP, sterling silver and vintage brown a later possibility.



The Lawless DIVER's estimated list price will be 899 € inc. 19% German VAT (net price 755€ for all international customers outside of Europe. The first prototypes are already fabricated (see post below). Pre-orders will start in January 2012 with an estimated delivery in March 2012.
