|Sunburst blue dial with ceramic bezel|
One of the main highlights of the 20 ATMOS Blue Heron is the blue and black combination. The stunning new blue bezel insert elevates the look of what would be a conventional black dial and bezel dive watch. Inspired by the alluring blue and black feathers of the great blue heron (Ardea herodias), an Aves class of birds that are uncommonly found in North America. Sans the full black aesthetic, the glossy blue ceramic bezel insert adds a splash of colour and wrist presence to the watch, while it functions like a proper 120-click unidirectional, 60-minutes bezel. Achieving the superior scratch resistance and luxurious qualities of the bezel insert requires an intricate process - Firstly, the outline of the insert is cut out to shape to be fitted accurately in the bezel. Afterwards, the numerals and markers are meticulously engraved by machines with precision and clarity. Subsequently, the engraved ceramic bezel insert is super heated to an astounding 1500 degrees to harden and purify the ceramic.

The 20 ATMOS Blue Heron retains the iconic dial design reminiscent of classic dive watches. The deep black face of the dial contrasts well with the white applied indices and hands, which makes the dial extremely legible, just as a dive watch should be. The indices and hands are treated with Superluminova lume that glows a bright and vibrant green in dark lighting conditions. The date wheel rests on the 3 o’clock position, replacing one of the indices, which gives the dial a balanced and symmetrical look. Protecting the dial is a piece of flat sapphire crystal with 2.5 times magnifying date cyclops, coated with anti-reflective treatment on the underside.
The 20 ATMOS Blue Heron is driven by a Swiss made 25 jewel ETA 2824-2 / Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement which has a 4 Hz beat rate of 28,800 beats per hour (BPH) which features handwinding and hacking capabilities. This movement is widely popular even in many other Swiss brands as it has been proven to be a robust and reliable “workhorse” movement.

To sum up, the 20 ATMOS Blue Heron offers incredible value for its price point, packing great specifications in a classic diver design. The new addition of a blue ceramic bezel insert is a fantastic colour combination with the deep black dial, exerting a good amount of wrist presence while keeping an elegant aesthetic. Paired with the well-proportioned case, this piece definitely ticks all the right boxes as a good “everyday diver” to match with a smart office attire or a casual outfit on the beach.
