T•a•c•t•i•c•o TC.3 FAMILY

By TLex This cool looking watch with the power-reserve indicator is the new TC3, the third model to comes from T•a•c•t•i•c•o, Crepas Watches' military division.

It is in fact not one model, but a family of three, sharing the same case, but using different movements, so with quite different looking dials.

The TC3's design is based on a flieger watch, but as scuba diving courses through the veins Crepas, the TC3 has been imbued with a diving spirit.

Its divers features include: 200 meters of water-resistant, a 60 minute scale internal divers bezel, and BGW9 Superluminova applied hands and dial markers.

The dials as mentioned earlier are all quite different from each other owing to the respective functions that each of the three models can perform.

However one common design element is the 'Φ' symbol that replaces the 10 o'clock marker.

Which is a letter of the Greek alphabet, used to represent the 'ph' (f) sound in Ancient Greek. I'm not entirely sure if there is anything else behind it's placement on the dial (a pilot reference perhaps?).

Nevertheless it does further the TC3's already modern military styling, that somewhat puts me in mind of a Bell & Ross, only with a cushion case.

Further features of the TC3 include: 10 layer AR-coated (inner) Sapphire crystal and a soft iron disc placed between the movement and the caseback cover, so that the TC3 has an anti-magnetic shield.

There are two case finishes: bead-blasted steel or black PVD with no less than 3 layers of PVD for a permanent finished. Crepas don't do things by halves! ;)

The TC3.1 is powered by the once ubiquitous ETA 2892-A2 automatic movement.

The TC3.2 is houses an ETA 2834-2 with GMT function that uses a rarely used GMT disc under its dial. It is a Limited Edition of 55 pieces.

The TC3.3 comes with an ETA 2892-A2 modified with a GMT function and a power reserve indicator. It is a Limited Edition of 55 pieces. Follow the link HERE for full specifications plus pricing and availability.
