The Mechanic Ocean

From Crafter Blue

Courtesy of Crafter Blue
I saw a reference to Crafter Blue on Fratello, and when I followed the link I found the Mechanic Ocean collection.

I am always a sucker for a destro or "right handed" version and the color option on this particular version is a bit out of the ordinary, which is welcome in an ocean full of black and blue divers ; )

The case measures a burly 45 mm in diameter, and is of stainless steel.  Solid case back, and even a helium release valve.  Water resistant reported to be 300 meters or 999 feet (depending on how you want to measure it).  The movement is identified as the Calibre 3531 and per the info on from Crafter Blue is (based on Seiko movementstop-seconds function,  21,600 vibrations). All at a very aggressive price of $510 USD
