Dive Watch Releases / Articles



By TLex This is the new Prometheus Piranha, whilst its design is inspired by divers watches of the 1960s and 70s, it has a distinctly young and edgy character that wouldn't be out of place on the wrist of a surfer or a wake-boarder or indeed any extreme aquatic-sports enthusiast.

Its has a 316L Stainless steel case with a brushed finish and polished beveled edges. The case is fitted with a flat Sapphire crystal with an anti-reflective coating applied to its underside.

Divers features include: a screwdown crown and caseback, a 60-click type 316L Stainless steel unidirectional rotational divers bezel with dive-time scale, a Helium escape valve (9 o'clock) and a water-resistance of 500 meters or 50 atm.

The crown is signed with the Prometheus logo. The caseback features an endearing Piranha fish engraving with its jaw extended wide open and his dagger-like teeth poised to bite your toes off!

Under the hood of the Piranha is a Japanese made workhorse, the ubiquitous Miyota 9015 3-hands automatic mechanical movement with date (3 o'clock) and hacking sweep-seconds hand.

Its matte dial is available in 4 distinct colors: black, orange white or yellow. The dial markers have a total of 8 layers of C3 SuperLuminova that has been generously applied to them, which should make the Piranha glow liek a torch. C3 SuperLuminova has also been used for the hands and bezel's 12hr marker.

Dimensions include: a case diameter of 44mm (without bezel), a total height of 14.20mm and a lug-width of 22mm. The watch comes on a custom back PU divers strap with a steel buckle.

The Prometheus Piranha 500M will be available from June 2014 priced 339euro. Follow the link HERE for more info.
