After a sell-out release of the original Ocean Crawler Dream Diver earlier this year, the Rochester, New York-based brand is back with a new limited-edition re-issue. The newest release features three new dials including a Blue Carbon Fiber, Red and Orange dials colors.
The original Dream Diver release debuted with a run of 300 units. This reissue will see the same number of watches hit the shelves, with each striking colorway strictly limited to 100 units each.
The Ocean Crawler Dream Diver has been designed to be the ultimate diving watch. Every single watch has been wet tested to ensure it can withstand depths of up to 2000 feet. When designing the Ocean Crawler Dream Diver, the brand considered the needs of water sports enthusiasts, especially those who partake in scuba diving, spearfishing, and ocean-bed exploration, to ensure the watch was not just attractive, but also a functional tool that could withstand the rigors of underwater activity.
Material choices are particularly important for watches that are intended to be subjected to such a challenging environment. As such, Ocean Crawler opted to use a solid metal bezel with C3 x1 Lume filled markers in the unidirectional timing bezel to complement the main sapphire lens, which has been treated with an anti-reflective coating.
Each of the 300 units produced by Ocean Crawler this time around will be individually numbered between 1 and 300 on the case back. All watches will be made from 316L stainless steel, with the option of black DLC coatings on the Blue Carbon Dial option. The case measures 44mm across (excluding crown), 50mm lug-to-lug, 15.5mm-thick, with a lug width of 22mm.
Through the 3.5mm thick sapphire lens, a high contrast display greets the eye. There is a choice of Blue carbon fiber, Orange and sun-ray Red dial. All boast applied hour markers that have been filled with seven layers of Swiss C3 Lume, which is also applied to the 120-click bezel and the hands. The importance of low-light legibility cannot be overstated, as it is critically important for a diver to be able to read the time that has passed since submersion, no matter the conditions.
For peace of mind, the Ocean Crawler Dream Diver is powered by the reliable, self-winding Sellita Sw-200 movement. With an operating frequency of 28,800vph, which equates to 8 ticks per second, the SW-200 is regarded as an industry stalwart and is a popular choice for many sports and adventure watches due to its excellent resistance to shock and time-keeping accuracy when under duress.
Ocean Crawler guarantees that its new Dream Diver model will keep precise time for at least five years. The new wave of watches will be available for pre-order on October 4th while stocks last. During that time, the retail price for these pieces will be $799 per unit. After the pre-order period ends, the price will rise to $999.
