The SCURFA Bell Diver 1 is back!

The Bell Diver 1 makes a return for 2020 with a sharp new look that is available in two case finishes and retaining all the features that have made it one of the brand’s most popular models.

Headed up commercial deep sea diver, Paul Scurfield; the UK’s SCURFA Watches is a brand built around creating reliable timepieces for those working in the offshore diving industry;

however the brand’s no-nonsense approach to watchmaking, fair pricing and high-level of quality has helped them garner a large following outside the world of commercial diving.

For 2020, the Bell Diver 1 stands out from the crowd with its polished steel markers, ceramic bezel and high-impact red accents that create a striking contrast against the watch’s gloss black dial.

The new look includes: a bright red minute-track, a red lollipop sweep-seconds hands, and the “BELL DIVER 1” name also emblazoned in red.

The Bell Diver 1’s watch case which measures 43mm in diameter by 16mm thick and with a lug-to-lug measurement of 51mm and is available in satin finished Stainless steel or with a PVD coating.

While the HEV is largely considered a superfluous feature on those dive watches that have one, the Bell Diver 1’s demographic includes Saturation Diver’s –

and as such has a functional Heliox Escape Valve (tested in-house down to 151m of decompression) on its left lateral side at 9H.

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.

Powering the Bell Diver 1 is the Japanese made Miyota 9015 automatic movement, chosen for its robust build and reliability.

In order to shield the 9015 from the low levels of magnetism experienced offshore that could interfere with it, the Bell Diver 1’s movement has a brass cover.

The movement is covered by a solid Marine Grade steel case-back cover while the dial is protected by a large domed Sapphire crystal.

The Bell Diver 1 comes on a custom “SCURFA” embossed rubber diver’s strap priced £364 – £406.
