Its time to pass this along to someone else who will wear it more than I do. This is a ruggedly built watch that is customizable and can be worn outside as you need it. I wouldnt take it into the lake swimming but it will handle a fall into lake. It is a Seiko quartz movement added to custom case was tested in water over night with no issues. The painted Kraken is amazing and bright and will definitely be a conversation starter!
The band is new as it was when I received the watch. It is a sharkskin in leather and fits the watchs sea theme great!
The case is 316l hypoallergenic stainless steel and is fitted with a premium quality mineral crystal and a screw down style stem. In order to better match the theme and also add some more details and increase the look and value i milled a'porthole' in the back screw down case and fitted it with a domed mineral crystal that was hand painted in two layers (the primary one is our mark'Petru' while the second is the milky white background) using fire hardened glass enamels - that ensures a superb look, durability and style. The movement is a Japan made Seiko quartz.
The dial is fully hand decorated using the micro painting technique and high quality acrylics - it took me over 6 hours to complete this task, mostly done under magnifying glasses to be able to create the needed details. I also milled a date'carousel' to better expose the second layer and add a plus of depth to the painting. The second marker is also hand painted in matching colors while the main 4 markers are fully handmade in our shop from high quality resin and glow in the dark pigments. The strap is also 100% handmade using super soft genuine calf skin with an underlayer exposed through'portholes'; the under layer consists of genuine blue shark skin and fits perfect with the entire'story' through origin and color. Related to it's WR as it's a diver style i can only attest that it is completely safe to use it while washing your hands, in the rain or while getting out a fish from the water; it might and almost sure withstand even more water'abuse' but as i don't have the means to test it professionally what i did was to leave it in a deep recipient filled with water overnight and then splash it with a high pressure jet of water a test that posed absolutely no problems to it.
