By TLex SECULAS are one these fairly unremarkable Swiss Companies that we seldom hear about. This would appear to be their first diver, at least in recent years; they might have made one at some point as they've been established since 1960. The 48mm, 200m Royal Marine is presented here with a big splashy backdrop - just incase we weren't sure it was a diver! The large gold component over the glossy black bezel (wonder if that's ceramic) reminds me of the Yema Sous Marine.
From SECULAS Resolutely sporty, daring and powerful with its water resistance to 200 metres, the Royal Marine by Seculus defies oceans and their depths. The 316L stainless steel case houses an ETA 2824 automatic movement, a token of reliability. The result is 48 mm of pure functionality: a three-hand dial and a date window at 3 o’clock, highlighted by a magnifying lens built into the sapphire crystal.
Loyal to the rigorous standards and high performance demanded by Swiss watchmaking, the Royal Marine watch is a tribute to devotees of technology and style. Two engraved plates with or without gold plating – one between the lower horns and the other on the left-hand side of the case – proclaim its kinship with the name of both the brand and the model. This finely crafted and virile timepiece is fitted with a sporty triple-link steel bracelet or a silicon strap with diving extension.
