You know who we haven’t heard from in a very long time? moVas, that’s who. Well, that’s extra on us than them. moVas has been on the market, nonetheless creating watches, they usually’re again this time with a iteration of a earlier mannequin (one we’ve not written about, really). Meet the moVas Oceaner 3.
As you may guess from the identify, the moVas Oceaner 3 is a dive watch, full with a 300m WR ranking, in addition to an inside timing bezel. This watch units itself aside by having a unique dual-crown structure than we’re used to. Instead of at 2 and 4 o’clock, we’ve acquired them at 3 and 9 o’clock. Functionally, it ought to work simply the identical, however aesthetically, you’ve acquired a way more balanced look than a normal dual-crown structure would have.
What I moderately like concerning the moVas designs is the type of rounded octagon that lots of them have for the bezel design. That is in place right here, after all, with a brushed end on high (nice for hiding fingerprints) and polished on the perimeters, supplying you with a pleasant pop of sunshine. The the rest of the case has a twin end as properly, brushed and shot peened, giving some distinctive textures that – once more – will conceal these fingerprints.
Flip the moVas Oceaner 3 over, and also you see the Seagull motion. No shock, as moVas stands for “Movements of Asia”. While you may not be accustomed to the Seagull 2100, the specs ought to sound acquainted – 45-hour energy reserve, perlage ornament, antishock safety, and hackable.
In preserving with the chunky look of the case of the moVas Oceaner 3, you’ve acquired a thick three-link bracelet that goes right down to the deployant clasp with a diver extension in-built. Want to vary it up? No worries there – the watch additionally comes with a rubber strap, in addition to a leather-based strap that tapers from the 24mm lugs right down to 20mm on the buckle.
The pre-order for the moVas Oceaner 3 goes till the tip of this week (April 15, 2022). If you get in earlier than that, you’ll be scoring a ten% low cost, with the watch coming in at $1,990 (together with worldwide transport). If you’re considering you wish to choose one up, you’ll be in uncommon firm – solely 50 of those are being made. movaswatches.com
