Check out this new model from Deep Blue Watches; it might be the ultimate daily/nightly beater. 

Here’s why – the PC in DAYNIGHT Diver PC Tritium Automatic’s name stands for polycarbonate a resilient, lightweight thermoplastic that is widely used in engineering.

PC gets its strength from its incredibly strong chemical structure where its molecules possess tremendously strong bonds in high numbers, giving it its unique levels of resistance. Polycarbonate btw has a typical tensile strength of between 55–75 MPa (force per unit area). The Daynight Diver PC has a 45mm diameter case with 200m of water-resistance.

I own and wear (probably more than most of my other watches) two PC watches (both Luminox Navy SEALs) because for example, if you’re; 

surfing, diving, washing the car, chasing down bad guys or even sleeping; PC watches can take a load of abuse and you hardly know they’re there. But my PC watches nice as they are quartz.

Plus they are fitted with K1 crystals. The new DAYNIGHT Diver PC from Deep Blue has them beat with its reliable Japanese SEIKO Cal. NH 35 automatic movement with date and Sapphire crystal. 

And despite the added weight of a mechanical movement and a Sapphire crystal, the DN Diver PC Auto weighs just 3 ounces!

As is typical of DB’s Tritium-lumed models; there are tons (17) of tubes on the hands and indexes as well as one of the bezel’s 12hr marker.

The tubes are available in either: blue, green, orange or yellow; although some colors may have already sold out. 

MSRP is 499USD; however most models are currently ON SALE from as little as 199USD.
