Akula (Shark) is Back.
Luckily for you watch-lovers, 2020 is the year when a new iteration of a diver watch from Buyalov presents itself on our shores.
And this is a massive presence indeed – owing in overall case design concept (stemming from that of a totally indestructible 5-ChM submarine wall clock) to earlier RR01 model of a bulky heavy-duty timepiece, the new RR version’s appeal lies not in military heritage but rather in an environmental venue.
This time “Akula” stands… well for a shark – a solitary sea hunter proudly embossed on the back cover of a substantial yet elegantly detailed case. Sophisticated combination of ball-blasted and brushed surfaces greatly attributes to overall fresh and modern hi-tech look of this timepiece. The watch is a sheer eye catcher with its sandwiched structure accentuated by circumferential anodized aluminum insert and grooves cut into perfectly machined sidewall.
As with every our timepiece the form is always the function. Large 46 mm case made of high quality 316L steel ensures every possible protection against elements and potential impacts. Robust and highly accurate Seiko NH37A movement protected by a smart Diashock system boasts ball bearing rotor for extra toughness. Quick date change function will spare you trouble while travelling through time zones.
Highest readability in and out of water is ensured through use of fiberglass dials featuring BGW9 Superluminova indices aided by a scratch proof sapphire anti-glare crystal.
Separate screw locking crown at 4 o’clock sets inner oxygen supply countdown bezel while 24 hour indicator will be of help should you spend your vacation exploring subterranean lakes of Greece.
The watch comes in a variety of dial/insert color combinations to choose from – blue, silver/orange, black/orange and black/red. Patented strap attachment fixture enables you to switch between two types of a strap – rubber or leather depending on kind of diving you are into.
