OBRIS MORGAN Port [The Dapper Diver]

Dive into the future with the new Obris Morgan Port! Introducing the Port from Obris Morgan; a non-conformist diver’s watch with a fresh new perspective that strikes a happy balance between sports and dress codes. The Port’s design language creates a watch face that is absolutely pristine; it mightn’t possess those typical design elements that we expect from our diver’s but at its core it is still very much a dive watch – but perhaps from some other time or world. For example the dial has eight brightly lumed segmented strips laid out in 5 minute incriminations; four on top and four on the bottom. In addition to this the dial has large diamond-tipped hands also with bright lume; the minute hand btw is larger allowing you to easily distinguish between the two. Meanwhile Port’s rotational bezel also has an all-important lumed 12hr marker, so too a prominent lumed sweep seconds hand that will let you know that the movement remains operational while submerged. The diver’s bezel btw as well as featuring pronounced teeth (allowing for a good amount of grip) and having engraved graduations boasts a further unique feature, the watch’s water-resistance markings engraved and shown in feet (660) and meters (200). Further features of the Port include: a matte micro textured dial, Swiss SuperLuminova BGW9, sapphire crystal with inner anti-reflective coating, a screw-down crown and case-back as well as screw-type lug bars.

The dial is offered in black as well as three further soft colors such as blue, olive and sand. 

Power comes from a Japanese made Miyota 9015 automatic mechanical movement with a beat-rate of 28,800vph and an autonomy of 42 hours.

Finally the watch can easily be adapted with a strap of your choice thanks to its end—link adapters.

The new Obris Morgan Port intrigues with its avant-gardist meets post futurism design codes yet despite its outwardly stylish appearance; it is not for one moment lost on you that this indeed a diver’s watch. But what do you think?

  1. I really like the overall design, very distinct. I prefer a slightly thicker case.

  2. Los buzos profesionales ya no se quieren poner los relojes de buceo de verdad, los clásicos, mucho menos se van a poner este. Esos tornillitos en la tapa trasera lo matan. Como Skin Diver pasa para muchachos chapoteando en la playa.

    1. Agreed this is not a serious diver but at least offers a fresh perspective. The case back could be improved.

  3. New design language, influenced from MING designs. I have a custom explorer from them and I really enjoy it. If it weren't for import duties I would pull the trigger.

    1. Damn duties. You got to request that they undervalue for you. If I didn't do that I'd have hardly any watches.
