Ocean Crawler Core Diver - Blacked Out Limited Edition - 600m Swiss Mvmt (Regulated)
This limited edition Ocean Crawler Core Diver is known as the Blacked Out model, and comes in a convenient travel case with both a polished mesh bracelet and a pair of canvas straps.
Why We Love This Watch
We love the stunning good looks of this 44mm diver, along with an uncommon choice of colors and mix of finely brushed and polished finishes, which together work extremely well, and are subdued enough to make this a rather dressy diver.
However, even more than that, what is under the hood has us the most excited. Ocean Crawler have made sure that the Swiss automatic movement is carefully regulated by a trained watchmaker for an even greater accuracy than is the norm on these already great Swiss movements. Every watch, without exception, has been immersed in water and pressure tested up to a water resistance rating of 2,000 feet, something most microbrands don't do. Ocean Crawler even go so far as to test each watch with ten different shock tests, the severest of which is the 6,000G impact hammer test, hundreds of times more g-force than in typical car crash tests. Ocean Crawler is a very apt name indeed for this brand, as you can feel comfortable traversing the ocean floor wearing one of these timepieces.
The specs on the Blacked Out Ocean Crawler Core Diver are equally impressive. The helium escape valve here actually adds to the balanced look of the design. The sapphire glass is 4mm thick. The Swiss Super-Luminova C3 lume, (the brightest color,) is seven layers thick on the ceramic sapphire glass bezel. We think you get the picture. Little wonder that this watch microbrand is comfortable providing a five year manufacturer's warranty with each watch, something you can take advantage of through The Microbrand Store™ as an Ocean Crawler authorized dealer.
With only 100 of the Blacked Out Core Divers being made in a limited edition, this is a fairly rare timepiece that we expect to sell out quickly. Ocean Crawler have a history of releasing new models continuously, with existing models selling so fast that it can be as hard for a retailer to line some up as it can be for a collector. Our advice: If you love the design as much as us, don't hesitate or you may miss an opportunity to land one. We have bought all of the remaining stock so once we're sold out, that's it folks!
