The story behind Hyperion Ocean 600m

You may already have heard about Crafter Blue. At the very beginning, Crafter Blue designed and engineered the curved end rubber straps for popular dive watches.

Two years later, they began to design our own dive watch and launched our first watch – Mechanic Ocean 300m in 2018. Meanwhile Crafter Blue helped another brand UNDIVE to design the strap for their dive watch. Unfortunately, the watch discontinued due to some issues. By the end of 2018, Crafter Blue is allowed to reissue this watch. Furthermore, they upgrade and enhance the watch in Switzerland. Now, they are proud to launch their first Swiss made watch – Hyperion Ocean 600m.

Crafter Blue

Design

Overall

The Hyperion Ocean aims to combine vintage styling with modern technology. The compelling sky-blue second tells the spirit of this timepiece. Measuring 45mm in diameter, the Hyperion Ocean is water resistant to 600m/2000ft and has a helium escape valve. It meets the needs for saturation diving. Powered by well-known Swiss made movement Sellita SW200, an alternative of ETA 2824, it provides high accuracy and reliability in use.

Antimagnetic design

To enhance the performance of the timepiece, the Hyperion Ocean has soft iron shields which surround the movement to fight against magnetic disturbances. Protecting the watch from the extreme environment, the Hyperion Ocean becomes one of the most powerful tool watches.

Strap selection

Unlike other brands, Crafter Blue has been developing and engineering high-performance vulcanized rubber straps with curved end design for many years.

Every time, Crafter Blue tailor make the curved end rubber straps for every single dive watch model to make sure you have good experience on wearing without any complaints. The Hyperion Ocean will be mounted on Crafter Blue S2 rubber strap which features 15 holes, double the amount that are typically found on straps, offering increased flexibility in their length.
