BACK TO THE FUTURE

60s/70s dive watch cases from which this piece is very reliably patterned, were exceptional. the seiko CMAS diver was actually only one of many many companies putting their dive watches in these type cases. little did they know 50-60 years later the future would be entranced once again by that design.

which brings us to the Nethuns scuba500, one of the most beautiful and authentic renditions of this CMAS design. there are a few nods to the future we live in which remove it from pure retro accuracy. one is the case size, which given today's tastes, is completely acceptable. 41mm with another 4 or 5 for the crown is actually wonderful.

another nod to the 'now' was to change the proportions more than i'd prefer, since i'm a vintage junkie, but it's not disturbing enough to keep me from having purchased this exceptional piece. i'm talking about the case thickness, which is chunkier than any one of these style cases ever came in. however, the reasons for Nethuns doing that are clear...no CMAS style case of the 60s/70s ever had a 500m depth capacity. as did few other divers then.

so the chunk can certainly be forgiven, but in fact may not be such so egregious since many other squarish divers of the 60s/70s were quite this chunky, turning this CMAS style into a bit of a retro hybrid.

the thick raised sapphire crystal, which is rare in even retro watches, was a killer addition. there's been some poor feedback on using a Rolex style dial and markers on a very anti-Rolex homage, which i understand.to deal with that i opted for the Breitling style dial and hands...superbly done as is absolutely every detail and construction on this watch.

the dial lume and lumed ceramic bezel are superb. as is the buttery smooth and precise 120click bezel. my only sadness is that my piece is 17 sec/day. i don't know if these excellent NH35 Seiko movements are regulated by Nethuns but, unfortunately, mine wasn't.

other than that, i do love it.

The Nethuns Scuba 500 SS531 is a very comfortable and beautiful vintage style diving watch. All the specifications are just right: a mechanical Made in Japan SII NH35 movement, gorgeous domed sapphire glass, 500m water resistance, a ceramic bezel and a comfortable rubber strap. What more can you wish for? A great price! And that's just what Nethuns did with the Scuba. This watch offers a tremendous amount of value for money, especially when you take Nethuns' superior level of finishing into account.

With the 41mm diameter (with a 42mm bezel) is means the watch is very comfortable for nearly every wrist. It does have a fairly big lug to lug distance of 51mm, but that's essential to the design of the watch. It's a great watch to take with you on your diving journeys, your desk diving journeys or just a casual stroll.

Orient RA-AS0005S

Gorgeous watch!

Fantastic watch! Likewise SeriousWatches! Two days for delivery to the north of Sweden.
I highly recommend SeriousWatches. Great service!

Dear Mr. Lindqvist, Thanks for your kind words. It's a pleasure to hear that you are happy with the watch, I hope it gets a great patina soon! Have a good weekend. Connor Serious Watches
Fantastic piece

The watch is excellent. It is heavy but that should be clear by
reading the specs. I was afraid that it would wear too heavy, but that is not the case at all, looks amazing and sits quite comfortably.

Very happy with my purchase

Like Christmas

Buying at SeriousWatches is like Christmas.
The communication and the service is competent, fast, reliable and very friendly.
Shipment is also very fast and reliable, packaging is awesome.
Well, and the watch I bought, a steel Zelos Swordfish in midnight blue,is also awesome. I'm so impressed with the overall build + design quality and looks.
I am so content with SeroiusWatches and the Swordfish, that I had to buy another one within one week.
Kindest regards, to SeriousWatches as well as to Zelos!

Dear Mr Kirschner, Thank you so much for your kind words. It's always a pleasure to hear when a customer is really happy not only with their watch, but also with the service we have provided. We hope to hear from you again someday, but until then, keep enjoying your new Zelos! Kind regards, Connor
