Historic Gevril Sea Cloud Watch Collection


by John Sealander  

A Sportsman’s Watch that a Gentleman Would Appreciate

Gevril WatchesWhen watch industry insider Samuel Friedmann acquired 265 year old Gevril Horlogerie in 2001, he was determined to build on this historic company’s illustrious watchmaking heritage by creating a collection of contemporary luxury timepieces that maintained the high quality and craftsmanship established by the Swiss company’s master watchmakers.

The impressive Gevril Men’s Sea Cloud Collection offers ample proof that Samuel Friedmann’s vision has been realized. Each of these professional diver timepieces has been hand crafted with such care and detail that sportsmen and gentlemen alike would be proud to wear one. The 40 mm Sea Cloud has been made available in chronograph or GMT configurations with a choice of a unidirectional 60-minute diver bezel, or a bi-directional 24-hour multi-time-zone bezel.

This precision timing tool is engineered to provide a lifetime of reliable service with professional features like a screw-down crown and a massive 316L surgical stainless steel case that is water resistant to 660 feet. The rotating stainless steel bezel features raised, cast steel numbers that that can be read by touch as well as sight. An anti-reflective, scratch resistant sapphire crystal protects a highly readable dial with bright, luminous indices and sword style hands.

Genuine Swiss-made automatic movements power both the chronograph and GMT Sea Cloud models, and each has been equipped with an appropriate module for the added chronometer or 24-hour time complication. These beautifully crafted timepieces come with a solid 316L stainless steel bracelet that is secured with a fashionable deployment safety clasp.

Like all Gevril timepieces, the production of Sea Cloud GMT and Chronometer models has been strictly limited to maintain quality standards. A Gevril watch isn’t for everybody. According to Gevril founder Samuel Friedmann, these exclusive timepieces were created to meet the needs of very discriminating customers who are looking for something unique. If you’ve been looking for a professional diver watch that you could wear to a board meeting, you may be that special customer.

To put one of these superlative timing tools on your wrist, contact your authorized Gevril watch dealer immediately and ask to see the Sea Cloud Collection. You’ll have to act fast, because you’re probably not the only sportsman, or gentleman, who appreciates this kind of quality, and there are very few pieces of this historic watch remaining to be purchased.

Fortis B-42 Marinemaster Watch Collection


by John Sealander  

The classic styling on these iconic divers has often been imitated, but never equaled.

Fortis WatchesWhen Fortis introduced the Marinemaster in the 1960’s, it quickly became one of the company’s most popular and enduring designs. It’s easy to see why. The Marinemaster embodied everything the venerable Swiss watchmaker believed in. Marinemaster watches were well-made, precision timing tools that divers, aviators, and adventurers could depend on in any situation.

Fortis B-42 Marinemaster Watch CollectionOver the years, the first Marinemaster design grew to become an entire collection, linked by a common set of principles. Today’s Fortis B-42 Marinemaster Collection includes both three-hand day-date configurations and chronographs engineered to meet a wide variety of professional needs. These watches all feature a clearly marked unidirectional rotating bezel for timing dives and a durable stainless steel case that is water resistant to an impressive 660 feet.

All B-42 Marinemasters feature easy-to-read day-date windows at 3 o’clock, and chronograph configurations add an innovative oversized knurled edge to the rotating bezel, making it exceptionally easy to manipulate underwater. Like many Fortis watches, the B-42 Marinemaster incorporates one of the cleanest, easy-to-read dials on the market. In both the three-hand and chronograph configurations, it is this large, extremely legible dial that makes the watch a true professional timing tool. Some users prefer the simplicity of the three-hand versions, since the watch is so easy to read in difficult situations. Others prefer the chronograph models, with additional 12-hour, 30-minute, and small seconds subdials, for their versatile timing capabilities. Either way, these exciting 42mm masterpieces will never let you down.

Fortis B-42 Marinemasters are powered by a precision, Swiss-made automatic movement and protected by an anti-reflective, scratch resistant sapphire crystal. Some models also incorporate a clear viewing port on the case back, providing an intriguing glimpse of the intricate mechanical movement at work. B-42 Marinemaster timepieces can be equipped with silicon, caoutchouc, or top-quality calfskin straps to meet your needs. Alternately, some models can also be equipped with a solid stainless steel bracelet.

Fortis B-42 Marinemaster Watch CollectionAfter a century of watchmaking innovation, the Fortis B-42 Marinemaster Collection remains a visible and enduring affirmation of the legendary quality that Fortis has become famous for. Even the Fortis name means “strength,” and that’s a strong reason to contact an authorized Fortis dealer immediately and reserve your own B-42 Marinemaster.

Calibre Hawk Diver Watch Collection

Calibre Hawk Diver Watch Collection

Calibre Hawk: Divers, Drivers, and Pilots
Will Love these Stylish Timing Tools

Calibre WatchesDiver’s watches have an iconic style all their own. Traditionally, diver’s watches feature a large bezel that is clearly marked with a 60-minute scale. These bold, easily distinguishable minute markings on the watch face are mandatory, since most dives are less than an hour in length. This is why the minutes are much more prominent on a diving watch than the hour markings. When you’re under water, every minute counts. It is also important that the watch be readable in total darkness. Of course, all diving watches must be water resistant to at least 330 feet, but nobody has said they needed to be stylish.

Buy Calibre Hawk CollectionCalibre decided to change all that with the introduction of their new Hawk Watch Collection. This collection of exciting diver’s style timepieces will appeal to divers, drivers, and even pilots. These precision timing tools are not only extremely functional; they’re fabulously fashionable as well. There are a variety of Hawk models available, including a rugged, sporty three–hand configuration with a date window at 4 o’clock and a chronograph model for those who need to time events.

A brightly colored chapter ring divides the large diver’s style bezel on all Calibre Hawk timepieces from the extra wide luminous indices, creating a dial that is both attractive and extremely readable. Even the hour and minute hands are skeletonized to improve readability under difficult conditions.

Buy Calibre Hawk CollectionAttention to detail is evident everywhere you look on these superb timepieces. The luminous indices are extra wide and the second hand is tipped with red for improve visibility. The precision quartz movement is cased in a solid block of stainless steel that is water resistant to 330 feet. Four dramatic oversized bolts are used to fasten the comfortable black caoutchouc strap to the case. The chronograph model also includes three well-placed sub-dials to time events and a pair of black pushers that flank the protected stainless steel crown.
