Its exquisite red, blue and white decorations on its case, those luminous hands and dial markers, clever markings on the rubber band makes this “Deep Black” men watch a unique and indispensable timepiece.
Even though the black ceramic case has a diameter of 45.5 mm, I found it extremely comfortable on my wrist the first day I wore it.

It happened so quickly and within first ten minutes of diving, my patriotism was a notch higher. Underwater, it was just awesome.
