Case Finishing, Dial and Hands Design

Perfect Proportions
Perfect Proportion On The Wrist

The Tropic Diver 300 is offered in 2 finishing; military grade matt sandblast or exquisite hand polish. The lugs are chamfered to fit seamlessly with wrist contours The matte black dial is fitted with large-sized hour markers which are filled with lume. The luminous lollipop hands are in perfect proportion to the minute chapter ring that makes telling time a breeze and matching black date aperture position at 3 o'clock for easy reference.

Introducing Bakelite Ceramic

Before we go onto our bezel, let us explain more on Bakelite. Bakelite is a material used in early plastic that is light weight, durable and can be molded into infinite shapes. It was used as a substitute for aluminum bezel inserts on watches. What makes Bakelite attractive is its shine. We absolutely adore the shine of Bakelite but the possibility of scratching it turns us off.

So after weeks of experimenting and prototyping, our production team managed to replicate the same finishing, looks and feel with high tech ceramic. Tropic Diver 300's raised convex bezel insert is fabricated from a special blend of ceramic finished with luminous minimalist indices. Now anyone can enjoy a “bakelite” bezel and not having to worry about scratching it!

Bezel

The 120 click uni-direction rotating bezel features half knurling to accommodate the bigger dial opening and not sacrificing on the excellent grip achieved by a combination of fine machining and hand polishing.

Water Resistance

Your average diver watch is equipped with a 200m water resistance. The Tropic Diver 300 is water resistant to 300m and still manages a relative low profile of 14mm with a flushed case back ensuring a comfortable fit on the wrist. All watches have been tested to withstand 32 atmosphere worth of pressure on industrial machine.

Strictly Mechanical

Swiss Made ETA2824-2 Automatic Movement
Swiss Made ETA2824-2 Automatic Movement

Why did we decide on a mechanical movement? A basic mechanical movement is assembled together with over 100 parts made with precision engineering. The fact that engineers and watchmakers were able to calculate and develop a device of miniature proportions capable of telling time more the 200 years ago never fails to fascinate. Moreover mechanical movements are self powered and will never need a battery change.

Go Swiss or Go Home

Ticking inside the Tropic Diver 300 is the Swiss Made ETA2824-2 automatic movement. Why Swiss movement you might ask? The movement is like the engine of a automobile, choose the right engine and you will be able to enjoy trouble free driving. Choose the right movement and you will be able to enjoy accurate timing, reliable power reserve and hassle free maintenance.

Various movements were selected and tested for accuracy, power reserve, resistance to shock and impact. The final contenders were narrowed down to Citizen's 9015 (Japan), Seiko Instrument's NH 35A (Japan) and ETA's 2824-2 (Swiss). The Swiss-Made ETA2824-2 outshine the rest with it's stellar performance. Moreover ETA only supplies movements to reputable manufacturers that adhere to its strict requirements. Only “Elabore” grade movements are used for Evant. One can expect an accuracy variation of +/- 10 seconds with a minimum power reserve of 38 hours.

Sapphire Crystal

The crystal is the most exposed part of the watch and often the first point of impact. That is why it is important to fabricate it with the best materials and in this case, sapphire. The sapphire crystal glass used on the Tropic Diver 300 is 3mm thick and domed. Further enhancement were made with anti-reflecting treatment done beneath it.

Crown

The crown of the watch allows us to engage different settings and serves as protection from moisture and other elements. The screw-down 6.5 mm signed crown locks and unlock with ease and fluted for maximum grip.

Luminosity

Colors Blue (BGW9) and Old Vintage Radium from Super-LumiNova were chosen for the Tropic Diver 300. Multiple coats were applied for adequate night vision in dark environments.
