Decima Scylla LE (Brown) with Exclusive Bundle - 500m Swiss Mvmt CuSn8 Bronze
The 44mm Swiss automatic Decima Scylla is a gorgeous CuSn8 bronze dive watch with a stunning sunburst fumé gradient dial, 8 sided case, and 12 sided ceramic bezel angled to match the high dome sapphire crystal. Only 20 of each color have been made.
The beauty of this limited edition watch has been let down by the lack of dive straps, and the low grade leather straps that originally came with the watch. We've been able to line up an exclusive offer of the original watch and straps plus our own custom selection of premium straps with matching CuSn8 bronze buckles that brings out it's rich colors perfectly to really set this watch apart from the competition. This is not your average diver.
Why We Love This Watch
The dial on this watch is a chocolate brown with hints of orange in it's rich sunburst hues, which we think will go particularly well with the CuSn8 bronze case as it ages and patinas.(CuSn8 bronze is renowned as the best marine grade bronze for developing a warm, soft brown patina with some reddish hues.) In addition, the subtle fumé effect, starting darker on the outside of the dial and gradually moving to a lighter color at the center can give a subconscious depth perception that accentuates the curvature of the already high dome sapphire crystal, whose curves start with the similarly angled ceramic bezel.
Lots to love here looks-wise. Simply put, this is one of the best microbrand dive watches we've seen that will never be on Kickstarter. Only sixty timepieces were ever made in this rare limited edition, (all colors combined,) and the specs on this are simply stunning for the price.
Here we have rich sunburst gradient dials topped with an angled 120 click unidirectional ceramic bezel and high dome bubble-like sapphire crystal, set in a CuSn8 bronze case with no less than a 500 meter water rating, with a Swiss SW200-1 automatic movement with an edged date, thick Swiss C3 Super-Luminova lume on both the hands and the indices, a helium escape valve, and knurled crown.
Specifications aside, there's a lot for the eye to take in. The bezel is unusually 12 sided, and the almost cushion case is 8 sided, the two going very well together and adding another dimension to the design. The 316L marine grade stainless steel case back also features a laser etched 3D illustration of the legendary Scylla, an appropriate choice as Scylla is a Greek mythological sea-creature, with twelve legs (one for each side of the bezel) and six heads.
