   P3280017.jpg

  (please excuse the dust and lint on crown guards and rubber strap. ) 

Diameter : Massive at 46mm w/o the crown.

 
 

 

 

 Thickness: 18mm

 


Lug tip to Lug tip:  around 50mm 

Weight (watch w/strap or bracelet): 146 grams

 

Water Resistance:  300MT/999 Feet.  This is a deep diver with a very respectable 500 Meter water resistance.

 

 

(please excuse the dust and lint on crown guards and rubber strap. ) 

 

Case shape:  Traditional round bezel and dial with domed sapphire crystal. 

 

Case condition:  Like new with no cosmetic flaws.  

 

Case Metal: 316L stainless steel with bead blasted finish. The color is more of a gun metal stainless color as opposed to the silver of polished stainless.

 

 

    

Dial:  Black dial with sky blue outer minute track.  Super Luminova used at baton hour markers, hour and minute hands, and lume dot at 12 on bezel.   Orsa has a very distinctive and trademark dial design and geometry.  This piece falls in line with other Orsa watches with its distintive Orsa flavor. 

 

Numerals:  Luminous Baton markers at all hour positions.  Numerals on bezel at 10 minute intervals.

 

 

 

Crystal :  The large sapphire crystal on this piece is approximately a little over 32mm in diameter with a prominent dome on its surface.  It is an incredible 5.5mm in thickness.  

 

Crown:  The crown fitment on this piece is a very secure and sturdy screw down design at the 4 postion of the case.   It is a barrel shaped crown with knurling on the sides for easy grip. 

Right around  7mm in diameter.  It is a nice big crown which is very simple and secure.

Always screw down the crown for water resistance to be intact PRIOR to entering the water.

   

Dial condition : Mint.    

 

Dial Color: Black dial with sky blue outer track minute ring.  White luminous baton markers at the hour positions.  

 

 

Hands:  Military style hand set with superluminova coating for great visibility when charged with a light source at night. 

 

 

Bezel :   Unidirectional rotating "60-click" polished stainless steel bezel.  A bit over 46mm in diameter makes this one massive bezel. 

 

It rotates freely and has a little play in it which is a design element.   Some manufacturers like extremely tight fitting bezels which are even difficult to rotate and my experience with Orsa watches are bezels which are more on the "easy turning" side of the fence.   And I do NOT mean sloppy loose...just a tad loose comparitively speaking. 

 

The philosophy on a looser fitting bezel is when sand or grit from diving gets in the bezel area, which it always will.....then it also freely washes away due to the very slight looseness in the bezel design. 

 

 

Case back metal:    Awesome and detailed.  The caseback is a screw on design which is very secure for water resistance.   It is solid stainless steel with a design of a monster from the deep with a submarine in his tentacles.  Very cool.  Case back markings around the perimeter of the caseback.

 

Case Back markings:  "All stainless steel, 300 Meter, Sapphire crystal, Orsa, automatic movement. 

 

Movement Type : Miyota Automatic, caliber 8215.  This is a widely used automatic mechanical watch movement used in many dive watches today. 

 

Miyota is the Japanese company which is recognized in the USA as Citizen Watch Company.  Very large and very distinguished. 

 

They also produce a very hearty automatic watch movement which keeps good time.  I recently checked the timekeeping on this piece and its accuracy is around 18 seconds fast per 24 hours while on a watch winder. 

 

  Power reserve (amount of time a watch will remain running after it is taken off the wrist) is usually around 30-35 hours but can be a little longer or shorter depending on a few factors. 

 

  • Do not attempt to reset the date between the hours of 8pm and 3 am as the date setting mechanism can be damaged during these hours if adjustment is attempted

  • Movement Condition : Good condition and running approximately 18 seconds fast per 24 hours while on my watch winder machine.   

    • If greater accuracy is desired:

    • Wear the watch for a month or two to let the movement settle in:

    • Recheck the accuracy for 24 or 48 hours.

    • If necessary, the movement can be adjusted by a watch maker /watch repair person for a nominal fee and can usually be regulated to run with 10-15 seconds fast per 24 hours or better. 

    • My watch repair guy will do this service for around $20.   

  • Band:  Custom ORSA 22mm Rubber strap approximately 4mm in thickness.

     

      

     

    Band length:    Watch and rubber strap approximately 9 to 9 1/2 inches in length.  Strap is uncut and can be cut to size for specific wrist size.

     

     

    Buckle:    Secure Orsa  triple locking divers deployant clasp with signature in brushed finish.

     

    Band mm inside lug: 22mm

     

     The wooden watch holder in the some of the pictures

     does NOT come with this watch auction. 

    It is just used for photographic purposes.

     

    Warranty:   30 day limited warranty on the watch movement.  This watch is unworn and as received from Orsa watch company.  It has been periodically put on a watch winder and run to keep the movement in good operating condition.

  •  

  • Also:  As usual....I personally hand inspect and time every watch prior to shipment to ensure you receive a fully functional "good" watch!!!!!

  •

    1.  the OEM Orsa black watch pouch as received from Orsa.

        You will appreciate this when you receive a watch which functions properly and looks great.  You can really appreciate this small, but important, attention to detail when you receive a fully functional and cosmetically beautiful watch from me as opposed to a malfunctioning and defective watch or cosmetically damaged watch from a vendor who doesn’t even check their watches prior to shipment.
