The Submarine Commander

From Tavannes -

This is an anniversary model from 2017.  Per Tavannes, the Submarine Commander was born from a request by two British submarine commanders during the Great War.  They needed a watch that would keep water out, be anti-magnetic, and a bold, highly legible face.  The case measures 41 mm in diameter, and is of stainless steel.  The movement is ETA's 2824-2 std.

Hours, minutes, seconds, date.  Water resistant to 100 meters / 330 feet.

Upon closer examination of the website, it appears that Tavannes watches are available in the US, but I was unable to find further info for locations outside the US.  Also worth noting, it appears that one of the key people involved in Tavannes is the President of the North American side, which at last report was Bruce Cummings, with the North American HQ being in Pennsylvania.  

It is nice to see Tavannes back in business, and it will be interesting to see what develops.
