The automatic Dievas Shadow Stealth is a product of a successful crossbreeding between their Focal and Reaper tactical timekeepers. Featuring a highly contrast black-and-yellow color scheme that allows easier reading of time in virtually any environment, the watch also offers an extremely scratch-resistant black finish with its stainless steel body hardened in a sort of carbon bath and then treated with plasma, which forms a thin, but also a hard coating on its surface. I am not sure how well it would stand when compared to, say, DLC (which, too, has weak points of its own) but it looks and feels durable and robust.
Dievas, the German watchmaker with a Lithuanian name (in Baltic mythology Dievas is the supreme god) has recently uploaded a number of photos regarding its upcoming diver: the new Dievas Timeattack Automatic Chronograph.
Dievas maybe not particularly famous on the west side of the Pond, but it doesn’t keep the brand from expanding its model range of professional (or I’d rather call them “semi-pro entry-luxury”) diving watches. The Dievas Focal automatic diver, for example, not only offers an impressive WR rating of 500 meters (50 ATM) and comes powered by a high-grade Swiss made self-winding caliber, but also features an interesting exterior that will appeal to those in love with the legendary Bauhaus movement.
Dievas has just presented its new tactical Vortex Professional 500M automatic diver. Featuring a very clean design that successfully combines the legibility of a classic pilot’s timekeeper with the ruggedness of a modern diving tool, the new gadget may be a bit too expensive for a person graduating from something like a Seiko Monster, but, in my humble opinion, easily compensates the price differential with the build quality, impeccable styling, and, of course, tons of German-style mojo.
