By TLex Introducing the new CH7 from HELBERG a label of H2O Watches - a very capable 9015 powered 3000 meter dive watch with a lovely rugged bezel and a fantastic clean looking dial of which there are two versions available (black or silver).
The black dial version comes with a black ceramic inlay with BGW9 SuperLuminova (blue hue) markings. The Silver dial version comes with either a white ceramic inlay with BGW9 or in sunburst-effect brushed steel with engraved markings.
The CH7's case, which is in 316L Stainless steel measures 44mm in diameter x 56mm (lug-to-lug) with a thickness of 17mm. That lovely wide bezel measures 45.5mm.
The CH7 is very much about its bezel and dial. It has that lovely widely tracked bezel. And the dial with its two tiers and its polished and raised professional hour markers (3D 3,6,9 and 12) gives the feeling of being very deeply recessed into the case thanks to a beautifully brushed inner wall that surrounds it.
The dial has been designed to be super clean, too; text has been kept to an absolute minimum and there is no date window. The dial is completed with a set of brushed sword hour and minute hands and a sweep seconds hand with a lumed baton-shaped indicator.
Divers features of the CH7 include: a screwdown 'H' signed crown and engraved caseback, a 5mm thick, double domed Sapphire crystal with inner A-R coating, a 120-click type unidirectional rotational divers bezel with its dive-time scale in either BGW9 on ceramic or engraved steel.
Further divers features include: an automatic Helium Escape Valve at 9 o'clock and a water-resistance to no less than 3000 meters! The CH7 also comes fitted with a 24mm solid 316L Stainless steel bracelet with a micro adjustment clasp as standard.
It is powered by a Japanese made Miyota 9015 automatic movement, regarded as one of the most robust and reliable self-winding mechanical movements at its price-point. This is Helberg's 2nd model to utilize the 9015.
