Selling my barely worn TSAO Baltimore Limited Edition Bronze - Harbor Grey TORSK-DIVER with full kit including the watch winder. Comes on a very comfortable rubber strap with bronze buckle and also included is a two piece nato. The bronze case has taken on a very pleasing patina, and will only get better with age. Still under warranty until August 2021.

With a limited quantity of 423 pieces made in marine grade CuSn8 bronze case, each timepiece is individually numbered as No. xxx / 423 (to pay homage to the SS-423 submarine, also known as the USS-Torsk). The TORSK-DIVER is named after the USS Torsk submarine, currently located in the Baltimore Inner Harbor. The USS Torsk was one of ten Tench-class submarines to see service during World War II and happened to sink the last enemy ship in 1945. It has since been decommissioned and is currently being used as a museum ship.

Movement: The automatic Miyota 9015 by Citizen was our number one choice for the TORSK-DIVER. Many reviews have compared it to the Swiss ETA movements in terms of timekeeping and performance without the high price tag. Having used it for our first model, we were extremely pleased with the accuracy and reliability. As an improvement to an already incredible movement, we will also regulate the movement in 4 positions.
The 9015 includes a date window, 48 hour power reserve, and beats at 28,800 VPH (Vibrations Per Hour), resulting in a very smooth sweep of the second hand. It is also shock resistant and includes a hacking function, making it one of the best values on the market. Best of all - no battery needed.


Case Material: The Marine Grade Bronze TORSK is corrosion resistant and forms a natural oxide layer over time. This extra layer, called patina, protects the metal and gives a unique design - initially the timepiece will have a rose gold tint that will darken to an artisan brown.


Asking $440 shipped within CONUS. Tons of positive feedback here on Watchuseek... as well as Omega Forum and Rolex Forum under same name.
