Created as a testament to the old tool watches of yesteryear, the SpectreDiver is an homage to the traditional reasons that one might wear a watch in the past. The creator of the watch, HVD, takes inspiration from the tool watches that served the primary purpose of timekeeping without any of the luxury elements that watches tend to have today. Much of the focus of the SpectreDiver is therefore placed on the durability of the timepiece, but this is done without sacrificing the style of the watch.
The SpectreDiver is a durable timepiece crafted out of surgical stainless steel, creating a case that measures 40 millimeters in size. The large size paired with the SuperLuminova on the dial makes it easy for you to see the time from any angle and under any light setting for your convenience. Protecting the dial of the watch is a tough plexiglass crystal that reflects light to create an attractive appearance of the hand-textured dials.
The overall design of the timepiece takes its inspiration from the vintage dive watches found in the 60s and 70s, incorporating plenty of antique charm into the modern watchmaking styles of today. Making it safe for diving, it has a water resistance of 200 meters.
