One of the keys to this lower price point is the use of the Miyota 9015.  It is interesting to see that more an more watch brands are moving away from more costly "Swiss" movements towards what is proving to be a very strong, robust and dependable movement from Miyota.  

The Deep Ocean Red boasts a water resistance of 50 bars or 500 meters.  Owing to this, the crown is a screw down type and the case features crown guards.

The case itself is of stainless steel, measuring 43 mm in diameter.  The crystal is sapphire, the case back is a solid stainless steel screw back type.  This is a watch for diving, hence no display back.

The hands are red with white lume, adding a great touch of visibility.  

Unidirectional diving bezel with aluminum insert.  The watch is secured with a stainless steel bracelet with deployment buckle and diving suit extension.
