CWC – Cabot Watch Company – SBS Divers Watch

CWC sbs dive watchKoldsmoke once again presents a military inspired dive watch, not because it’s a trendy style these days, but because they are built to a high standard and can take a beating.  The Cabot Watch Company SBS divers watch, an alternative to the Marathon battleships.  Mineral crystal, not as scratch resistant as sapphire, but able to withstand shock better.  Pvd coating(physical vapour deposition-protective black case), on  a high quality diver under $1000, hard to come by, believe me when I tell you I’ve checked.  An interesting retro style tritium application on the hands, a pleasant alternative to the GTLS style.  This watch is battery powered, so you can argue is more accurate, or if you have more than one watch, less maintenance to keep it running, or no maintenance.  Just a hair under the cost of an automatic Marathon, but you get what you pay for as there are a lot of low quality cheap copies of this watch.  300m water resistance, good luck testing that champ, this watch will exceed your needs for a great looking, all purpose time piece.
