Just got in the new Scoripion Reef Diver for review. This is a custom-made automatic watch created by a couple of guys in Denver and it’s quite a looker. It has an automatic ETA movement with hacking seconds hand — that means the seconds hand stops when you pull out the crown — and is water resistant to 30ATM or 1000 feet. They’ve only made 100 of the red Reef Divers, but they’ll probably be hitting up the factory in a little while for more. It’s completely signed — crown, case, and buckle all say Scorpion — and quite striking.
Initial impressions: it’s quite light, but that’s fine, and the $799 price tag might turn some folks off. However, if you’re in the market for a diving watch that no one else has, this is up there in the top 3 microbrew, US-based models.
