An heirloom Dress watch
Classic Is Forever
The Swiss quartz movement makes for an extremely low maintenance watch, as well as a very slim design (8.8mm thin).
Polished Rhodium plated hands, genuine sapphire flat crystal with 6 layers of anti-reflective coating, highly polished stepped bezel, and a unique linen textured dial all make for a truly special piece.
Deep Eddy | Snow
A Dive Watch For the Different
The ultimate dive watch. 200m/656ft/20ATM rated, mountains of SuperLumiNova fill each oversized applied index for stunning clarity, and a 42mm, brushed 316L stainless steel case with polished accents round out the classic design. The Deep Eddy is offered in two dial color options- Snow (a matte white) and Sapphire (a sunburst deep blue).
The watch ships on a super comfortable, custom silicone strap. An optional solid fitted-end link, 316L steel bracelet and hand-stitched leather strap Adventure Accessory pack is available for only $100 more ($150 value).
Preparing the components
All components are carefully inspected to ensure quality. The case, bezel, hands, movement and dial are all examined under amplification before assembly begins.
The dial is carefully placed and secured, ensuring the feet are fastened and all dust particles are removed.
Aligning the handset
Proper alignment of the handset is critical. Not just for time only movements, but ensuring the date change occurs +/- 5 minutes to midnight for date timepieces, means a satisfying flip of the date at the proper time.
Quality and Tolerance Checks
Once the dial/movement is cased, all tolerances are checked to ensure function and proper alignment. The seals are lubricated with high performance silicone grease, each case back is torqued appropriately to maintain water integrity, and then the water resistance is checked per the rating of each piece.
Each and every DuFrane watch is carefully checked and regulated to +/- 8 seconds per day. Although, I typically time each piece to between -2 to +3 seconds per day (even though this is not guaranteed). I strive to ensure these watches perform!
