Details

The Paradive "B" is our conceptualization of the Type I "Style S - Submersible Elapsed Time Ring" per Milspec MIL-W_50717A. A "Style S" version of the watch issued to US Special Forces and CIA maritime units is exceptionally rare. The only version we have seen appears to have been a prototype used in Vietnam. Our "Style S" Paradive features a fully lumed sapphire inlay. The angled lumed sapphire inlay on the Paradive required two years of development and is the first of its kind.

The concept for the Paradive collection was to produce a watch that the modern US military might have requisitioned if the watch was re-introduced today. We replaced the bi-directional bezel with the modern safety feature of the uni-directional bezel for diving, ensuring that one would always under-estimate the oxygen remaining. We also introduced a helium release valve (HRV) to the design, enabling the watch to serve salvage diver and combat diver alike. The HRV essentially pressure proofs the watch against the thin air of high altitudes and the special helium gas mixture used by saturation divers. The original acrylic crystal was upgraded to an anti-reflective coated sapphire crystal and the monocoque case replaced with a two piece design that is significantly easier to service. The bezel inlay is sapphire glass and fully lumed with SuperLumiNova BGW9. (We recommend the hard anodized aluminum inlay for more demanding applications)
