First released in 2016 and now in its second generation, Gruppo Gamma's Divemaster Mk II draws inspiration from the legendary dive watches of the 1950s coupled with retrospective Italian Naval design overtones.
The Divemaster features a brushed 316L stainless steel case with a screw-in signed oversized crown and helium escape valve giving it a water resistant rating of 500 metres or 50 atmos.
A highlight of the 120 click unidirectional bezel is the domed insert made of ceramic, making it non-scratchable and nearly indestructible. The bezel also features markers filled with the highest grade of Swiss Super-LumiNova for excellent readability in all conditions. And there are 3 elegant 'blocks' positioned at 2, 6 and 10 o'clock on the bezel that can be used to grip and turn it.
The scratch-resistant domed double convex sapphire crystal is enhanced with an anti-reflective treatment on the underside. It protects the 2-tone gradient color or sunburst sandwich dial with markers filled with premium Swiss Super-LumiNova. The dial has silver colored hour and minute hands and a red seconds hand, also filled with Swiss Super-LumiNova.
The Divemaster is powered by the tried and tested Swiss ETA 2824-2 automatic movement, which provides reliable and accurate timekeeping under the toughest circumstances.
Very comfortable matching premium Horween leather and canvas straps are supplied with the watch in addition to a travel pouch and screwdriver for strap changing.
Meticulous attention to detail and uncompromising build quality have become the main hallmark of the Gruppo Gamma brand. The Divemaster Mk II is another exceptionally well-made timepiece from Gruppo Gamma and reinforces why their watches are highly sought after and collectible.
