By TLex Here's something new from Titioni (it's been a while). The Seascoper, Titoni say is based on the company’s historic diver from the 70s and is a revival of its ‘diver heritage’. Really?!
Sure they’ve retained the cool Seascoper name (I like that), but that’s about it. The 70s Seascoper that is referred to on Titoni’s news page has this really cool case. There’s one on eBay (check it out); – where’s that?!
None of the 70s design elements are recalled on the new dial, either. Basically it has none of the charm and character of the original and looks like a hundred other dive watches. If you’re gonna use words like, heritage and revival – at least back them up with something!
Okay, rant over, so what does the new Seascoper offer? The dial is offered in either black or white. It is decorated with 12 framed luminous hours markers, luminous hour and minute hands, and an arrowhead seconds pointer. A date indicator can be seen at 3 o’clock.
It’s 41.5mm case is in Stainless steel. Divers features include: a scratch resistant anti-reflective Sapphire crystal, a unidirectional divers bezel (blue or red) and a screwdown crown with either a red or blue crown stem to match the bezel.
Water resistance is 200m / 20atm. It is presented on either a solid steel bracelet or a black ‘Seascoper’ embossed rubber divers strap with a single fold over buckle with pushers. And that's about it. It's nowhere near as interesting as the 70s model that is was supposedly based on!
