Argonautic bg automatic blue-yellow 300m 16152204
The Swiss Sellita SW 200-1 automatic movement in its screwed stainless steel case keeps perfect time on the way down. Scratch-resistant, anti-glare sapphire crystal guarantees a clear view of the tidily designed dial with its 15-minute scale on the bezel inlay to provide orientation in an emergency ascent. And thanks to the extension to the stainless steel strap with a safety clasp, the DAVOSA Argonautic BG Automatic can be easily worn on top of a wetsuit.
The state-of-the-art Super-LumiNova BG W9 luminous pigment ensures exceptional luminous properties. This material has been applied to the figures and hands, and now for the first time to the 15-minute scale and all the figures on the ceramic bezel. Under natural light, this best-in-class luminous pigment appears white; in the dark it shines brightly and clearly in clear blue.
Thanks to a manual helium escape valve, a controlled equalization of pressure inside the watch can be achieved when ascending to the surface. Moreover, the valve at 10 o’clock has been technically optimized and is now clearly identifiable thanks to the helium symbol on the crown face.
Sizing & Fit
The Argonautic quickly became one of my favorite watches to wear. The color of the blue dial is great. The build quality is as good or better than any other similarly priced Swiss Watch brand watches that I have owned. I wish I would have discovered Davosa sooner!
