Last year, I wrote a review on Scurfa's Diver One Stainless. You can find that review here. This new watch is Scurfa's second iteration of the Diver One Silicon, their largest and most expensive (still a relative term) watch.
Of course, when the price of Scurfa watches, there are no large numbers. This new watch retails for £124, or ~$190 USD. I typically cover high-end watches on this blog, so why am I choosing to write about this one? Simple. I like a company that listens to it's customers and that's exactly what Scurfa did. Having experienced their watches first-hand, I also know that they make nice watches. In my opinion, they could charge more for their watches, because the quality is certainly there. They took the feedback they got from their first watch and made some modifications. At the same time, the price barely changed at all. They changed the once flat sapphire crystal to domed and the aluminum bezel insert to ceramic. Scurfa also added lume on the markers of the new bezel, another touch that I didn't expect to see at a watch of this price. Customers were not too excited about the bezel movement on the old version, as it had some play. With the release of this new watch, I am interested to see if they "fixed" the "problem" (it did not really need fixing and it wasn't really a problem, but bezel movement is a matter of personal preference, hence the quotation marks). The crown, once bare, is now engraved with the Diver One logo and has a red ring around the middle. The "Diver One" text on the dial is also red, a nod to vintage watches. The size of the watch, 42mm, will remain the same, as will the 22mm strap. The movement, a Ronda 515 (which has proved a reliably choice for Scurfa's other watches), will also remain.
