WATCH GIVEAWAY: Ocean Crawler Core Diver – Aqua/Salmon V3

2021 is finally here, and to ring in the new year aBlogtoWatch is giving away a dive watch that can handle anything 2021 might throw your way. One lucky community member will win this limited edition Ocean Crawler Core Diver – Aqua/Salmon v3 watch, with a sporty ’70s inspired design, a unique faded colorway, and a massive 600 meters of water resistance.
The 44mm stainless steel C-case design of the Ocean Crawler Core Diver – Aqua/Salmon v3 draws inspiration from the classic divers of the ’70s while delivering dramatic wrist presence. Measuring in at 15.6mm thick, the case is engineered for maximal underwater capability, including such features as an automatic helium escape valve at 9 o’clock and a massive 4mm thick sapphire crystal. To aid in underwater legibility, the unidirectional sapphire dive bezel features markers in vibrant Super-LumiNova C3 lume. The result of all this engineering is a powerful depth rating of 600 meters, or 2,000 feet.

Omega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited Edition

HomeWatch ReleasesOmega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited Edition Watch ReleasesOmegaOmega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited Edition Celebrating its role as official timekeeper by Robert-Jan Broer May 20, 2020 MIN READOmega Seamaster Planet Ocean 36th America’s Cup Limited EditionI am not the experienced sailor that our editor Gerard is, but steering one of the racing boats in 2018 is one of the coolest things I’ve ever done.

It was a home game for us when the Volvo Ocean Race was held in Scheveningen in The Netherlands. Omega had a little surprise for us, that we could join one of the boats entering the harbor of Scheveningen. I often feel lucky that I am doing this job at Fratello. It makes it possible to visit places and do things I would otherwise never have done.

America’s Cup Limited EditionAround 20 years ago, I just started watch collecting. I remember Omega releasing their special Seamaster 300M America’s Cup, with white gold bezel. I still ha..

Crafter Blue Launches The Hyperion Ocean In Sunburst Blue

A compelling sunburst ocean blue colored dial that will catch your eyes with different shades of blue in different angles under the sun.

CaseThe Hyperion Ocean is 45mm in diameter — a common size for many professional diver’s watches. What makes the Hyperion Ocean line stands out from the others is that its lug-to-lug length is only 50mm, and the crown is placed at the 4 o’clock position to make it very comfortable to wear. The watch sits down on the wrist very comfortably. The addition of the rubber strap — an accessory for which Crafter Blue is perhaps best known — reduces t..

Ocean Crawler Automatic GMT Watch Powered By Soprod C125

Sponsored Post written for aBlogtoWatch by advertiser
Summer 2019 saw the hotly-anticipated reissue of the Ocean Crawler Core Diver, which had been a popular model with brand followers upon its original debut in 2018. Now, to round out the year, Ocean Crawler is releasing the Ocean Crawler Automatic GMT watch — a direct follow-up to the Core Diver with added GMT functionality. Interestingly, however, the caliber chosen to power this new model comes from SOPROD, as opposed to Sellita. This special release will be limited to just 50 units of each of the four colorways announced.

The latest model from Ocean Crawler maintains the dimensions of the Core Diver case, resulting in a familiar silhouette. At 44mm-wide and 15.6mm-thick, the Ocean Crawler Automatic GMT watch has a strong presence on the wrist, but with a manageable lug-to-lug length of 50mm, it does not go so far as to impede wearability. With 22mm-wide universal lugs, the Ocean Crawler Automatic GMT can accept a variety of str..

Royal Falcon Fleet 135, The “Spaceship For The Ocean”

The outer space and the seas are interconnected by the Royal Falcon Fleet 135 superyacht, designed by Porsche Design Studio. The only request that the developer Royal Falcon Fleet had for the design of the vessel was for it to be in the style of a catamaran. It was commissioned in 2009; the final result proves that it was worth the wait.

The idea of the ship was to create the equivalent square footage of a 210 ft monohull yacht with a length of 135 ft.

Four decks occupy the RFF135 ‘s layout.

RFF135 was constructed by renowned shipbuilders Kockums AB in Nynäshamn, Sweden and the project was shrouded in secrecy for several years.

The upper sundeck has the bridge control station, helm chairs, jacuzzi, bar and sun lounge. Combine that with good weather and you will have a great day.

The mid-deck includes the pilothouse, as well as the owner’s, guests’ and captain’s cabins. The owner’s private lounge and owner’s private dining and entertaining exterior deck are also on this level.
