So this is how you properly pimp a watch! This is Davosa’s debut bronze diver, a model which we previewed HERE and that we now know is available as two versions. You could say that Davosa are a little late to the BRONZE party, a party which some say was just a passing fad but in fact appears to be a growing (albeit niche) trend that is here to stay.
Apnea Diver - Special Collection
The blue, white and red colors spread out over a certain number of seconds replicate an internationally recognized breathing exercise in freediving: Breathing in during the five-second blue phase, holding for the 15-second white area and then exhaling over the 10-second red area. This color coding allows the freediver to concentrate fully on his or her breathing without needing to count or use a stopwatch.
For centuries bronze has been the material of choice for nautical devices as well as for the first diving bells. Now some watch manufacturers have begun rediscovering this heritage material. Bronze is easy to work with and its unique, yellowish red sheen gives it a distinct look compared to materials like gold, silver and stainless steel.
Davosa has a wide range of watches. They have divers, aviation, military, racing, and travel. All are very nice but one really stood out to me. While browsing their site I found the Davosa Titanium 46mm model, and I could not wait to check this one out. I really don’t have anything bad to say about this Davosa Titanium. Build quality is great, looks excellent, and its totally my style of watch. It even comes in a really cool black lacquer looking case. If you like what you see, go check them out at davosa-usa.com.
