NFW ViperFish (first look)

From NFW We just finished the case engineering on this new design on Monday night. So, I now feel safe in saying that what you'll see here is how it will look. The driving theme here was that this should be a "Real" dive watch, a mean & nasty tool of a watch. So, that's how it's designed. I've been working on this for many months, refining the design and working thru the engineering of every surface, edge, and corner.

The case is constructed in 3 layers, and are connected via the 4 'screw barrels' that protrude muscularly from the sides of the case: 2 on the left side and 2 on the right which are integrated into the crown protectors.

Automatic: Miyota 821A (the new, nicely decorated version of the very dependable 8215)

Chronograph: Miyota OS60 professional-grade quartz chrono (screw-locked chrono pushers)

Size: 48mm (excluding the crown and screw barrels) x 18.5mm height
- crystal: 5mm thick sapphire, with anti-reflective coating.

Triple layer SuperLuminova on skeletonized hands, dial markers and bezel.

Water-resistance 300meters / 1000ft

Will come with BOTH the screwed-link bracelet (with diver extension clasp) and the fitted rubber strap.

Will pass ISO 6425 test standards to be considered a 'real' dive watch (this will NOT be a 'fashion' dive watch!)

Now that you know a little bit more about it, here's what it looks like!
