For those that aren't au fait with this specialized alloy, Tungum has the aesthetic characteristics of 22 carat gold, but with a similar hardness of steel. It is anti-magnetic and non-sparking, and is well suited to marine environments owing to its high resistance to saltwater. It looks good and its luster is easy to maintain.



Back to the watch - it's inner case, which has a water-resistance of 2000m, even with an exhibition caseback is made from 316L Stainless steel. It measure 44mm in diameter x 17.50mm (incl. crystal) with overall length of 53.20mm. It is fitted with 4mm 'super' dome Sapphire crystal.



The watch is powered by a Swiss made ETA 2892 'high-end' automatic mechanical movement. It is presented on a genuine Horween leather strap with an ORCA Stainless steel buckle. Price is 1500USD.
