Following up the partnership between Prometheus Watch Company and OceanicTime on the Prometheus Manta Ray LE we have partnered once again to release the Prometheus Poseidon 3500m OceanicTime Special Limited Edition.

The 3500m Prometheus Poseidon for OceanicTime is an avant-garde diver watch powered by a Swiss Made ETA 2824-2 movement that brings out to reality a full game of contrasts and a distinctive look.

The main case has a black DLC coating while its components, the bezel, caseback, crown and HEV have all been left in steel. Even the screwed-lug pins are in steel, so that all the key-features of the dive watch have been highlighted for our delectation.
The top of the bezel has a Sapphire crystal inlay; on the black timing-ring below, only the white triangular 12hr marker remains; the origins of which date back to the mid-70s, when the special 3H edition of the Blancpain FF was created for the German Naval Combat divers who only required a single luminous marker for timing missions / dives. BTW this will be lumed.

The black of the bezel cuts a clean contrast against the brushed steel of the dial, itself boasting: a matte black hour hand, matte silver minute and seconds hands and polished indexes - all filled with black Super Luminova. Of course some luminosity has been sacrificed to achieve the desired effect.
To reinforce the minimalism of the watch the rehaut has been removed as well as the text in dials coupled with a wider handset (compared to the regular Prometheus Poseidon) reinforcing the watch's sense of drama and minimalism.

Only the Prometheus logo, the OceanicTime diver icon and a single line of black text with the watch's water-resistance remain.

In addition to the aesthetic enhancements, the standard movement has been upgraded to a Swiss made ETA 2824-2.

Finally the Poseidon 350ATM OceanicTime SE is presented on a brushed Stainless steel bracelet. A special divers clasp in black DLC signed with the OceanicTime divers icon completes the look.

I think it's $950, not sure you could call it a bargain compared to the normal version but no doubt the ETA movement will account for some of this increase.

It's a super watch! Very designer-esque! A departure from the common WIS tool diver, and I could see this alongside high end big brand fashion watches. Not my cuppa, but kudos to the overall creative collaboration ;-) Good you diplomatically negated any preconceptions regarding luminosity. Never understood how black lume worked anyway.

Cheers & good luck. Will look forward to seeing this go live.
