Last month the aBlogtoWatch giveaway watch was a Delma Santiago Blue Shark. The lucky winner was Paul E. and following-up on his receipt of the watch here is his mini review and thoughts on the timepiece:

I was the proud recipient of a recent aBlogtoWatch monthly giveaway – what a surprise…and a complete pleasure. Ariel let me know I had won the Delma Santiago Blue Shark and the watch arrived from Switzerland about a week after that email.

The watch arrived in a huge box – much larger than I expected. Upon unboxing, I understood why the packing box was so large – the maple wood presentation box is very substantive. And well finished; a preview of the quality of the watch inside.

Inside the presentation box was the Delma Santiago Blue Shark. This model is a limited edition dive watch of 500 watches per model. The Blue Shark is impressively water resistant to a depth of 3000M or 9842 feet. The Blue Shark comes with the choice of a stainless bezel or black PVD bezel.

The watch clocks in at a sizable 47mm in diameter (not including bezel), 18.5mm in height, and weighs in at a hefty 295 grams. On all accounts this is a HEFTY chunk of metal. Add in a top-grade 2824-2 movement and a sapphire crystal with underside AR coating and you have one impressive piece of wrist candy.

The watch came mounted on a hefty stainless steel bracelet with a super-solid stainless bracelet with safety clasp. The clasp is decorated with the Delma logo and a beautiful perlage. I’ve owned many a watch and found the clasp to be heads and shoulders above any other watch near the price range.

Very nice looking watch, and it's nice to know there are alternatives for us guys with larger wrist ( mine is 23cm ) that prefer a nice big watch!  I love the size and heft of the bracelet...I would really enjoy wearing it...as I love a really heavy watch.

Congrats, and thanks for the user review. 


Must be nice knowing that your watch can double as a serious weapon! Put it in a sock, start swinging it, and watch your enemies flee in terror.

Big congrats Paul!  I entered the draw as well, but obviously didn't win.  Loved the review and design of this piece that much that I purchased new through AD on Ebay.  At this price point I believe that it's a hard act to follow and agree on the SS bracelet; it's one heavy beast.  Ideal on my 9" wrists!  Enjoy sir!

You're in the same boat as me with the wrist size.  I have this now, thoroughly recommend this for your wrist size.  You won't be disappointed!
