This covert black PVD military divers watch on a matching PVD steel bracelet is one of our latest automatic (self winding) 24 jewel models. We producedÂ the NATO strap variant of these watches for a contract in South America and they represent excellent value and are very competitively priced for an automatic watch of this type and specification.
The PVD finish is often specified in military contracts for many special forces units as well as by anti terrorist units and for various covert operations. In the PVD process the steel is not black all the way through because the colour is created by a special chemical PVD plating process which is vastly superior to the painted finish used on some lower quality watches which can easily fade or rub off. This PVD process means that the colour of the steel is altered at a molecular level, therefore it will not deteriorate even during heavy usage although it can be destroyed if the case is badly damaged by a piece of metal being gouged out or if the case is worn down by really heavy abrasion against rocks etc.
This watch measures 45mm including the crown and 40mm excluding the crown and has 20 mm lugs so enables you to use a very wide range of NATO straps if preferred because the stainless steel bracelet can be quickly removed and a rubber or NATO strap fitted in its place.
