It seemed like the natural progression after the huge success of the Diver ONE and given Paul Scurfield’s background as a deep sea Saturation Diver that Scurfa’s next model would reference the Bell Divers.

Like most of Paul’s designs, it was dreamt up in the confines of a saturation diving chamber in the North Sea. His brief was to create something simple yet unique. And considering this came about at 4 in the morning - what a great result! 

Named after the divers working from a diving bell, the Bell Diver 1 has been designed with a number of really nice new features, and like them is made of tough stuff.

It features a marine-grade Stainless steel case with a water-resistance of 500 meters and measuring: 43mm in diameter by 16mm thick and with a lug-to-lug measurement of 51mm.

Further divers features include a large signed 8mm in diameter screw-down crown and a unidirectional rotational diver bezel with a high-tech ceramic insert with matching BGW9 SuperLuminova markings.

While a Helium Escape Valve has become somewhat of gimmick on dive watches these days – the Bell Diver 1 proudly sports a working Heliox Escape Valve –

tried and tested by Paul from 151m of decompression – it is there for one reason and one reason alone, professional SAT divers need one! ;)

A Japanese made Miyota 9015 automatic movement was chosen to power the Bell Diver 1, simply because it is about the best auto there is at its price-point – robust and super reliable.

However to protect the movement from the low levels of magnetism experienced offshore that could interfere with it, the Bell Diver 1’s movement has a brass cover.

Underneath a domed Sapphire crystal is matte grey dial with gloss black markers, gloss black hour and minute hands and a gloss red second hand.

The sporty dial is given a purposefully look with a raised black gloss Scurfa Watches logo and Bell Diver 1 text in red to match the sweep-seconds hand.

Grade A Swiss BGW9 SuperLuminova has been used on the dial, hands and bezel insert. It glows blue in the dark.

Finally, the Bell Diver 1 has been fitted with a genuine rubber strap with the Bell Diver 1 and Scurfa Watches logos embossed.

It is priced £348 + £18 worldwide shipping and is in STOCK now!
