Ocean Crawler's Core Diver and Ocean Navigator

Post by AtomicTom » Mon Nov 12, 2018 11:18 am

Did everybody check out these new watches from Ocean Crawler?

There is the Core Diver with 44mm stainless steel cases, 600m WR, AR coated
sapphire crystals, 120 click unidirectional sapphire rotating bezel with BGW9
lume, an army of eye-catching dial, and bezel combinations with even more
Super-Luminova on their numbers, markers, and hands. On top of that, there
are mesh bracelets, and Sellita SW200 automatic behind it all.

Next you have the Ocean Navigator which has a 43.1mm titanium case, 600m
WR, 120 click unidirectional sapphire bezel with BGW9 lume, a solar bezel,
black, blue, or meteorite dials with C3 Super-Luminova coated hands, and
markers, and the STP1-11 automatic behind everything.

The Core Diver is a little raucous but I like it. The mesh looks really good with that case and bezel.

The blue dial Core Diver (both models) are actually pretty nice. Good summer beater depending on price.

I actually like the Navigator...but then there is the usual micro-watch bezel disease.

Don’t buy it there without asking me first if you want one. Just let me know which one and I’ll check on pricing

Matt, so sorry am getting back to this so late. :oops: Just seeing your question.

The outer bezel is a normal unidirectional rotating, and then the inner is called a
solar bezel, or compass. Where you evidently use the hour hand of the watch with
the sun, and then match the hour on the inner bezel. Have a little more info that's
from their website here for you... :thumbsup:


This special edition watch features an all Sapphire unidirectional rotating bezel which bears hour-markers filled with 7 layers of Swiss C3 SuperLuminova. Powerful lume on the key elements guarantees perfect readability when deep diving.

The Ocean Navigator features a patent-pending dual bezel and triple crown case design. The outer bezel is a timing bezel while the inner bezel is a solar compass. The crown at 10 o'clock controls the inner bezel while the crown at 8 o'clock is a helium release valve.

To use the solar compass, you simply point the hour hand of the watch toward the sun and match the hour on the inner solar bezel (orange numbers for the northern hemisphere and white ones for the southern hemisphere) to the hour hand on your watch. The H next to EAST refers to ‘Horizon’ and indicates the position within the solar compass where the most accurate cardinal coordinates can be taken during the day on the northern hemisphere. The measurements taken furthest from H will be the least accurate.
