I think my arm would fall off if it were mine. Oh right, HE forum, I guess I can post this one:In my best Dangerfield while loosening my tie and collar..., "This is a tough crowd".
I don't think your Invicta is going to fly with this crowd... but, thanx for showing us your watch.
Not entirely to my taste but has a throwback real world instrumental feel; i guess it should being a depth gauge and all.
Bit confused about the hands, I guess the one at 10:30 is a power reserve
This is a 5 minute retrograde counter that can be re-set at any time for 5 minute decompressions.
and the large blue tipped hand seems to be for a finer grained depth gauge at lower depths.
Yes, made for better resolution. According to BP, this is the most accurate mechanical depth gauge ever made.
But not sure about the other two shorter ones? I guess the yellow tip could be for the secondary deeper depth gauge
The Yellow is the 0-90 meter gauge, runs in conjunction with the 0-15m and then basically takes over the duties.
whats the red tip for?
The red hand records the maximum depth reading (memory).
Indeed. Well thought out in terms of its complications, it just seems late by a few decades! I'm sure divers of the pre digital dive computer era would have loved this. But at 55mm and around $40K(?) it's main value seems to be as a concept piece.All in all.. a pretty amazing watch... (IMO).
