H2O KALMAR CHRONOGRAPH in BRONZE or STEEL [tougher than your average chronograph]

Why use an egg timer when you can use a hammer! 

This is the Kalmar Chronograph from H2O Watch, Germany and it just might just change your perception of a sports chronograph should or could be.

The part diver’s watch part tunnel boring machine has been built like a, well a tunnel boring machine comes to mind but that's not to say that it isn't refined because it is. Made from high-grade 316L Stainless steel or CuSn8 Bronze alloy the Kalmar Chronograph is powered by Swiss made ETA 7750 automatic chronograph movement with a beat-rate of 28800bph. The watch's time, date and all chronograph readings can be found on a stunning gloss black to ink-blue graduated dial with a traditional tri-compax layout with the date at 3 o’clock. The dial is covered with a thick, domed sapphire crystal glass, and wrapped around this sat atop the case is a stunning CNC-machined turbine-style unidirectional diver's bezel with a sumptuous black inlay. The turbine bezel looks like it bore or hole through time and space but in the real world it offers exceptional ergonomics. As well as a dazzling interplay of light and shadows when the light catches it just right, which is pretty much from any angle. Further features of the Kalmar Chronograph’s case include a solid closed case-back, a screw-down crown and chrono-pushers allowing for up to 1,000 meters of water-resistance. It's completely black 1,000 meters below the surface, which is likely even darker than most bedrooms but this is no problem for the Kalmar Chronograph. All of its hands, a dial markers have been generously filled with brightly glowing BGW9 Swiss SuperLuminova which emits a strong blue light in the dark. Dimensions of the Kalmar Chronograph while by no means meager remain more than manageable for most wrist sizes. Its main case has a diameter of 43mm while the bezel measures 44mm. It's lug to lug measurement is 52mm while the lug width is 22mm. Its total height is 17.5mm. The Kalmar Chronograph comes with a handmade calfskin strap and CNC-machined H2O buckle but is offered with an optional solid steel bracelet with a diver's safety clasp.
