By TLex Obris Morgan have had a new divers model in the works for the past 9 months. The Explorer will be their first new release of 2013. It aspires to have a higher level of finishing and spec. than PREVIOUS models.
Its 316L Stainless steel case will be available with either a bead-blasted, satin brushed or DLC finish and will be fitted with an automatic HEV (helium escape valve) making it suitable for SAT diving.
The watch will be powered by a high frequency (28,800 bph) Japanese made Miyota 9015 caliber, which has an accuracy of +/- 10 sec/day.
It will be secured by a 316L Stainless steel movement holder. The hands and dial markers will be filled with C1 SuperLuminova.
Further features of
the watch include: a Solid 316L Stainless steel screwdown caseback and
crown, a 120 click-type uni-directional divers bezel, a Sapphire crystal
with single sided anti-reflective coating and a water-resistance of 20
ATM / 200 meters.
Dimensions include : a
32mm dial aperture, 42mm diameter (exc. crown), 12mm thickness inc.
caseback, 51mm lug to lug and 20mm (drilled) lug width.
