CYMA Navy Star GMT Skin Diver 2009 Watch   watch releases

Here is my first time talking about the CYMA watch brand. If you are in the US like me, you've likely never heard of it. Way to ignore yet another good market CYMA! I am gonna just spell it Cyma for now. So this is their new Navy Star collection watch. The timepiece will come in at least four varieties (quartz/automatic mechanicals), and in various colors. There will also be various PVD versions. Just saying that so that you don't think the pictured watch is the only one they offer. Regardless, I really like the pictured model being their automatic GMT model. Oh, and I think Cyma calls this watch their "Skin Diver." Which makes me think of someone skinny dipping with only this watch and a smile on.

Navy Star watches are Cyma's diver watch line. The models mix styles from many popular diver watches out there combing with a unique hybrid. The little details are the best like the textured dial, nicely crafted rotated bezel with the numbers in relief, as well as the complex looking crown. This is not a top-level luxury watch by any means, so the prices are not too bad. Still, there is a lot of watch for your money. This automatic GMT model runs about $2,200 bucks retail (can be had for less online), and the Navy Star watch line stars at under $900. The steel is nicely polished with lots of brushed sections, while the interesting looking bracelet is substantial with screwed-in pins.

You'll also notice that Swiss automatic movement (not sure exactly which one.. really doesn't matter here) has been COSC certified as a Chronometer. Always a good value-added feature. The watch is hefty looking with a solid construction from a well regarded Swiss company. I haven't seen most of the other models in the revamped Navy Star collection, but I am impressed at what I've seen so far. This GMT model has modest, but elegantly styled hands and a reasonably sized GMT hand. The execution of the watch is  well done and mixes both classic and utilitarian watch ideals. For example the rich amount of polishing adds a little glamor to normally sober looking dive watches at this price point.

The video is from a watch seller who is offering one of these watches used. You can check out the listing for this CYMA watch  here. There are most pictures of what the watch looks like in the link. I hope to see more versions of the CYMA Navy Star Skin Diver watches soon.

I have a CYMA Imperium, which is the watch that got me hooked on horological machines. It's a good watch & I get compliments when I wear it, but I have yet to see anyone else wearing one -and you rarely read about them. I'd like to see them get more attention -I think they're worthy of it.

I want to update my first post. After hearing the information above relayed by my jeweler, and after posting here, I sent an e-mail directly to CYMA Watch USA. They were very responsive and they are repairing my watch under warranty at no charge. I am very excited to get my watch back and I look forward to many more years with CYMA.

I own a CYMA Navy Star dive watch that is a little over 5 years old. It is stainless steel with the carbon fiber dial and listed at about $900 brand new.

Even though it is listed as waterproof, I have never taken it into the water, preferring to keep the highly-polished stainless steel as scratch-free as possible. My CYMA is my "dress watch" and it is in pristine condition. Instead I swim, snorkel and workout wearing one of my Luminox watches. That changed last week when I went swimming in the ocean with my CYMA watch on.

Even though I was not in over about 8-10 feet of depth, water got into the CYMA and it stopped running. The crown was screwed down tightly. I was a little surprised at this, but the real shock came when I sent the watch back to CYMA for repair. They stated that it would cost me $300 to have the watch fixed because it was out of warranty. I asked them if the watch was guaranteed to 100 meter depth in the water and their response was that the gaskets go bad and must be replaced every two years(Fine time to tell me that). I told them that my Luminox watches were both 8 or 9 years old, had been in the ocean a lot more and used heavily in workouts, etc, but had never leaked and never had a gasket replaced. My Luminox all stainless watch cost about 1/3 of what the CYMA stainless cost and from where I am standing, it is a much better watch. Since CYMA won't stand behind their product, I am disgusted with them and will not buy another product. BTW, I bought my wife a nicer CYMA than the one I own, but now I wish I hadn't.

If the other Swiss watches are this cheesy, I am going to stick with Luminox.

Thanks guys, for posting the link to our Cyma. It is a great timepiece with surprising quality - a lot of watch for the money and the COSC is rarely seen!

They made two big blunders though: on the inner bezel, the numbers from 8 to 16 are pointing away from the centre, they are upside down and harder to read. On the opposite, the bevelled numbers from 8 to 16 on the outside bezel are all pointing towards the center, which makes them all upside down when they are rotated by 180°.
