As soon as we got the OK from The Swedish Sea Rescue we knew that we had to create something really special. A watch that could cope with even the worst autumn storm the Swedish west coast could throw at it. And they can be pretty tough…
Blackwater was created to be a useful tool even in the most risk filled operations. A watch that can handle 300 meters depth, bitter cold and being thrown around demands precision all the way from the drawing board to the final quality control.
The SSRS does not only operate in and on water, they also use helicopters in their daily work, so we had to make sure that Blackwater would be extremely reliable to heavy vibrations. This was solved by using Hytrel gaskets inside the threads to make sure vibrations would not impact the screws used in the watch.
As always we believe less is more. In Blackwater visibility is of real importance therefore we made sure that the dial would be easily read both on land and in the darkness of the deep. No distractions just pure usability.
Blackwater is made to be used, and ideally as often as possible beneath the surface. A great diver extension system to the locking mechanism is key when using the watch with your drysuit, because we are all deepwater divers, right?
