CRAFTER BLUE Mechanic Ocean [coming SOON]

Here’s a quick look a new diver from Hong Kong based diver strap manufacturer, Crafter Blue.

The Mechanic Ocean (I think Ocean Mechanic might have had a better ring to it) is the brand’s debut diver’s model.

Although the watch makes a pretty bold statement on its own, it’s the lovely straps that do much of the talking for this new dive watch.

Paired with either; all-back, blue and red or grey and orange bi-colored bezels, the straps have a striking look thanks to their contrasting undersides.

Choose between black or blue with a red underside or grey with orange. The straps are made from Vulcanized rubber and are vented.

They have also been designed with curved-ends so as to fit flush against the watch case at the lugs.

In addition, they feature 15 holes, double the amount that are typically found on straps, offering increased flexibility in their length.

There are a total 6 variants of the Mechanic Ocean on offer, 3 with rubber straps and a further 3 with full steel bracelets with impressive looking clasps.

Special features of the Mechanic Ocean include: a left-handed crown set-up and an automatic Helium Escape Valve.

Serving as reminder of the watch’s 300 meters of water-resistance and said HEV which is located at 3 o’clock, is a circular steel ring that surrounds the crystal.

Here you will see engraved text for both of the above diver’s features least we forget them and the Mechanic Ocean’s intent as a professional dive watch.

Further diver’s features include a large screw-down crown and case-back, a domed Sapphire crystal, and a unidirectional diver’s bezel with a green-glowing luminous 12hr pip.

Complementing the bi-colored bezels and straps are a selection of texturized dials. They have BGW9 blue-glowing hands and markers.

Powering the Mechanic Ocean is the specially adjusted Crafter Blue caliber 3531, based on Seiko Japan automatic movement.

The movement is housed in the Mechanic Ocean’s 45mm Stainless steel watch case. Its price is 425USD (PRE-ORDER price).
