The Tugela is Draken’s take on one of the most popular watch genres – the dive watch. With its distinct hour indices inspired by the shapes found in Zulu beadwork, and it’s tapering case mirroring the shape of the Protea flower, there is no other dive watch like it. The bead-blasted case helps hide scratches, and the sapphire crystal display ensures clarity for the lifetime of the watch.

For the third edition of the Tugela, the bracelet will be tapered from 22mm to 20mm at the clasp. The clasp has also been upgraded.

The Tugela ‘Shaka’ is unique in the 2021 lineup in that it has a fully lumed dial. We went with BGW9 for a blue glow that will contrast nicely with the green glow of the X1-C3, and be a crisp white at day-time. As with the original version, the date wheel will feature luminous numbers – we think it’s a pretty cool feature!

The 120-click unidirectional bezel has been re-engineered for a tighter fit, ensuring there is no play, but still a satisfying click. The bezel insert is the same matt finish, but the markers are now luminous. The crown is a bit longer, allowing for better grip, and Draken added lume to the logo on the tip.
