Here is a monster of a watch I came across today, the VikingV2, which is the flagship diver watch of the Tempest brand. The Tempest Viking series is the vision of one man who wanted more out a dive watch. The VikingV2 is that watch… the name was inspired after the early Viking seafaring warriors known for strength and toughness.
The watch was developed, designed and engineered from the ground up with functionality in mind to withstand pressure up to 2000m/6600ft under the sea. THAT’S A DIVER!
This is a large watch even by today’s standards at 52mm from lug to lug and 17mm in thickness. So a really thick watch for sure and wears large on the wrist given the length. The case and bracelet are solid 316L stainless steel which also makes for a heavy watch.
The VikingV2 comes with two sapphire crystal options; one is flat while the other is a dome crystal. Its movement is the Japanese Miyota Calibre 9015, 24 Jewel Automatic with manual wind and Hacking function. As a bonus, each watch comes with Travel Case, Tool Set, 5-Ring Zulu Strap which I give a thumbs up to…
So…If a true diver is what you are looking for and are serious about your diving… here is your watch.
