Friday, September 16th, 2016

SPD Edition RESCO UDT Dive Watch

In collaboration with Coronado, CA based RESCO Instruments; Prometheus Design Werx will be releasing their exclusive edition of the RESCO UDT Dive Watch model under their Special Projects Division marque. PDW’s Special Projects Division is tasked with handling special product collaborations, limited editions to experimental projects. The SPD Edition RESCO UDT is a pure, purpose driven design, and a precision instrument for today’s modern adventurers and explorers who may find themselves in any environment whether under the Sea, in the Air, or on Land. The heart of this dive watch is the tried and true Swiss ETA 2824 self-winding mechanical movement, housed in a 316L stainless steel billet case, a domed sapphire crystal with an inner AR anti-reflection coating, and depth rated to 30 ATM / 300 M.

The SPD Edition RESCO UDT Dive Watch comes packaged in an Underwater Kinetics case, a NATO-style nylon strap, test certs, and individually serial numbered. Unique to this edition is the PDW Underwater Exploration Team (UET) Kraken with Trident logo on the dial and exclusive orange sweep.

The Design and R&D Team at PDW states:

“There is something that feels true and unique about a timepiece whose heart is a self-winding mechanical movement. It speaks to a long tradition of precision and manufacturing by a purely mechanical means. This watch does not rely on, nor will it ever need batteries to function, just your force of action day in and day out. ”

RESCO Instruments describes their watch:
“Made for the currents of the littoral zone, the RESCO UDT diver is comfortable in any setting. The UDT is made for action. With the addition of baton style “stick” markers and a solid bezel index design, the RESCO UDT offers up a classic look to your next demolition dive or cocktail party.”

The SPD Edition RESCO UDT Dive Watch will retail for $2195.00 and a limited qty will be available for purchase on Friday, Sept. 16, 2016 @ 3:00pm PST via their website, prometheusdesignwerx.com. Additional pieces will be built and completed in about 10-15 business days after the first initial release.
