moVas Bronze DIVER project

By TLex Here's an early look at the latest project from moVas. In the coming months they will launch a number of exciting new models, which include the Oceaner 1, an internal bezel diver and a new Bronze Diver, based on their best selling DIVER range.



The Bronze Diver improves upon the version introduced 2 years ago. One such improvement is its bezel, which has been redesigned for greater articulation and a less block-like shape. Its mechanism has also been improved. As well as this, the crown guard is also more refined.



The watch will be constructed from Chinese sourced CuSn6, which has been tested for its composition. It is virtually indistinguishable in its appearance from CuSn8. For those that are unfamiliar with moVas - part of who they are is being proudly made in Asia, which means sourcing materials and parts in Asia. 

The Bronze Diver will house a reworked day/date 3 hand movement that moVas had Seagull Watch Co. make for them with their own day/ date discs and a custom skeletonized rotor, which will be rose gold plated. It has a power reserve of 45hrs and an accuracy of +/- 10s per day. The movement is hacking.



Specifications and features of the moVas Bronze Diver include: a 45mm x 18mm CuSn6 bronze case, a 3mm double domed Sapphire crystal with AR-coating on its inside, a 120 click-type unidirectional divers bezel with an engraved bronze insert with dive-time scale, a signed Titanium screw down crown and a 12 sided Titanium 12 sided screw down caseback with a domed Sapphire crystal exhibition window. Its water-resistance is 300 meters / 30atm.



Its dial will be dark olive green with a matte finish and rose gold rimmed applied indexes with C3 SuperLuminova. The hands will also be rose gold plated, brushed and applied with C3 SuperLuminova. The watch will come on a dark green leather strap along with a customized rubber divers strap with a bronze tang buckle. A working prototype should be ready sometime in November. At this stage there are no further details, but rest assured, when they available they will be announced here first.
