This watch is a SUB/PVD/ST/A below is a full description of this particular watch which is an earlier version of the current SUB/PVD/ST/A. The watch is an automatic (self winding) 24 jewel model and represents excellent value at the significantly reduced price.
This watch is finished in a special covert matt black non reflective PVD finish, this finish is often specified in military contracts for many special forces units as well as by anti terrorist units and for various covert operations. In the PVD process the steel is not black all the way through because the colour is created by a special chemical PVD plating process which is vastly superior to the painted finish used on some lower quality watches which can easily fade or rub off. This PVD process means that the colour of the steel is altered at a molecular level, therefore it will not deteriorate even during heavy usage although it can be destroyed if the case is badly damaged by a piece of metal being gouged out or if the case is worn down by really heavy abrasion against rocks or something similar.
This brand new self winding automatic military specification divers watch in black covert PVD finish is virtually identical to its successor except for the details such as packaging, bezel and crystal etc. We located a handful of these during a stock check and they are being cleared to avoid the risk of them being mixed up with the current stock.Dimensions and Specification:
