From Divers to Dolphins

Created tough and built to last, the Prometheus Baiji Diver Watch takes on a new level of responsibility and proves the brand’s success in continuing to reach new “depths” in quality.

Along with the “come to conquer” vibe found in many watches favored by those braving the unknown deep, there is a sentimental tribute at the heart of this diving watch.  The Baiji dophin was a freshwater dolphin formerly found in the Yangtze River in China.  However, due to man’s pollution, this creature is now extinct.  Saluting this animal’s memory in a quality diving watch seems to send the message that man can still engage in all his favorite water related activities, but the well-being of his fellow creatures must not be ignored.

There are several different versions of this watch, featuring either a deep black, creamy white or vibrant orange face, changing the style just enough to personalize the particular feel of your own timepiece.  Either color can be accompanied by a stainless steel or Black PVD coating.  The saphire glass coating strengthens the watch for wherever you take it.  Even down to 300 meters under water, where the watch reaches its maximum resistance point, this piece shines with possibilities.  Well, and with the 12 Swiss made tritium tubes it contains.  These tubes use innovative technology to emit light even in total darkness scenarios.  It does not even require an initial charge like some lesser watch models, allowing full knowledge of time no matter how dark one’s surroundings are.

Electing to use a highly proven movement designed by Seagull, Prometheus watches first had the piece thoroughly tested by independent parties before the ST2130 became the driving force of the timepiece.  This demonstrates just one more dedicated step this luxury brand has taken to improve overall quality in their watches, and to reinforce the positive message put forward by this particular one.

The simple final touch in this celebration of diving, quality timepieces and the Baiji dolphin, is the laser engraved shape of that same disappeared dolphin, pledging their species to memory and to at least one group of loyal sympathizers.

Down to the depths or out on the town, this fine watch will serve you well wherever you go, and always in exceptional style.
