OBRIS MORGAN Nevon

By TLex Introducing Obris Morgan and their debut divers model, the 'Nevon'. OM, who are a Hong Kong based watch company have four watch series: 'F' Flieger type, 'R' Retro, 'D' Diver type, and 'T' Tactical type.



All of their watches are assembled and tested in-house. Although their watches are 'affordable', they are still subjected to stringent quality control, insuring that each and every automatic movement is reliable and accurate.



The Nevon, with its clean, classic vintage good looks makes use of a 'Flieger' type case, only stretched to a more substantial size. It has been constructed from 316L Stainless steel. Dimensions inc. 43mm diameter, 14mm thickness with a lug to lug width of 49mm and a lug width 22mm.



The case has a water-resistance of 20 ATM / 200 meters. It is fitted with: a 120 click-type uni-directional rotational timing bezel, a Sapphire crystal with anti-reflective coating on its inside and a solid 316L Stainless steel caseback.



The bezel is 'sterile' except for a 12hr luminous marker. The caseback is engraved with the 'OB' logo. Both the screwdown crown and case are available in three finishes: micro bead-blasted, brushed or black PVD.



The watch dial, which is in black, gray or navy is with thickly printed (white) BGW9 SuperLuminova indices. The mirror finished diamond cut skeletonized hour hand, second hand and yellow serpent-head minute hand have been filled with BGW9 SuperLuminova. BGW9 emits a blue light.



The watch is powered by a Japanese made Miyota 8215 automatic calibre with a frequency of 21,600 bph (beats per hour) an accuracy of +/- 10 sec/day.



The movement is non-hacking - meaning when the crown is extended during time changing the second hand continues to sweep. The movement is held in place by a 316L Stainless steel movement holder.



The Nevon come on a  5 links 316L Stainless steel bracelet. It has a total length of 185mm and thickness of 5mm. The total weight of the watch is 240g.



Here's the interesting part - the watches are priced between as little as 249USD and 269USD. There are a total 14 different case finishes, dial and handset configurations! That's a lot of watch for a very modest amount of money. 



I personally have not tried one yet, but must admit I find the look of the watch very appealing! For further details please follow the link embedded in the OM logo below . . .
