ROTOR Sporttaucher №1 & 2

By TLex I'm sure I've come across this case design more than once before, I just can't think where? The Sporttaucher №1 has a simple, clean and shapely design. It's actually a form that I find appealing.

Constructed from stainless steel, which has been sandblasted its case measures 42mm x 13mm and is endowed with all the basic divers features; such as a screwdown caseback and crown with double O-rings, 20ATM or 200m of water-resistance and a uni-directional rotational divers bezel.



It comes with either a black dial with a white Mercedes-Benz handset or white SuperLuminova lumed dial with a black flieger handset. The dials have simple markings and minimal text. The date window is at 3 o'clock.

They are powered by Swiss made ETA-2824-2 automatic calibers. MSRP is 359€, which is pretty reasonable - if you don't mind that they come with mineral crystals? Similar story to the Uhren Von URH Divers.



The Sporttaucher № 2 (below) is basically the same watch as the DAVOSA Argonautic among others, only there's no mention of a ceramic bezel inlay. It does however have a proper flat Sapphire crystal.

Spec. includes: a 43mm x 13.5mm brushed Stainless steel case, 300m of water-resistance, a manual helium escape valve (10 o'clock), a unidirectional rotational divers bezel and an ETA 2824-2. MSRP is 399€. Pretty reasonable again; might be worth an investigation . . .
