Davosa Apnea Diver

Davosas Design Department is more diligent: in cooperation with the deep relaxed divers Nikolay Linder Davosa has worked further with a new and very independent diver’s watch to shake off the Tributes-manufacturers-image …

Details to the Davosa apnea diver automatic diver’s watch

Davosa was advised by Nik Linder, who can write five world records in the Streckentauchen under ice, two German records in the Streckentauchen in the Lake, the longest underwater Kiss (sic!) as well as the longest Apnoetauchgang from the ceiling hanging with your head in the aquarium in his free divers resume (if the latter has tried anyone else, is however questionable;)).

Go to an interesting SWR documentation around the diver Axel früh and Nikolay Linder:

Striking at the DAVOSA apnea diver automatic is first on the edge of the dial this multi-coloured ring. Nikolay Linder is not about French and wanted to have perpetuated so be sure the colors of the drapeau tricolore on the apnea diver automatic-the colors correspond to a single pattern for Freedive breathing: during the five seconds blue air is caught, then she held 15 seconds (white area) and breathed out (red area) then about 10 seconds. Without having to count or stop, the divers can
This color code thus fully the breathing exercises focus on.

The Davosa apnea diver automatic has also an another gimmick for exactly these breathing exercises: unscrew the Crown to the “3”, the middle section of the slightly curved, you can take out the 46 mm stainless steel case. By using an attached to the middle part, hinged ring can be the remaining clock container.

According to insidewatch, the Davosa apnea diver automatic is available in three versions: stainless steel case Satin with a, black dial and black plated with a body (mechanically applied PVD coating). Also appears a bicolor variant with a stainless steel housing in combination with a black bezel and Crown.
In addition, each kit contains a second, matched to the colors of the breath ring rubber removable strap.

Assessment and alternative to the free dive watch from Davosa

For approximately €1000 you get a Round Swiss-made package without discernible weaknesses: ceramic bezel, a decent Swiss automatic movement by Sellita (a replica of the ETA 2824) and Sapphire Crystal in combination with a stand-alone design sounds like many good arguments.

The clock size is certainly due to the gimmick make up, but should the an or deter other potential customers. The brightly-colored rubber bracelets look like in my opinion also perhaps slightly too much chewing gum – I personally would have simply mounted the black rubber strap.

Forth though not very similar design (but also right by the Crown guard failed and designed with an Apnea divers), which is Hamilton Khaki Navy Frogman, which is also since 2016 on the market.

The rather subtle black and blue versions of the Hamilton Khaki Navy Frogman have doing a tragbarerewatch size of 42mm and also an MSRP of about €1000.

With an MSRP of about €1400 is the 46 mm version of the diver’s watch while considerably more expensive, for the model with a lightweight titanium case scores of the Swatch Group, wododurch also this scrappy is suitable for everyday use. But unfortunately only scratch-sensitive stainless steel is the flashy red bezel.
