Brand new from Dievas is this Classic Blue (also in black as the Classico Blue Professional). A dive watch with a rugged spirit and a designer face, the Classico Blue has a unique design meant to appeal to guys all over the world. Dievas watches always revolve around a diving watch theme. Their last new release was the Vortex, a really great watch that combined the looks of a diver and an aviator. This time, Dievas has gone back into diving watch territory in an inauspicious looking fashion diver that is still up to the task of diving deep. In a 44mm wide steel case with a 5.5mm thick sapphire crystal, the Classico Blue is water resistant to 1000 meters. Perhaps there will be later models with other dial trim colors. So there might be a Classico  Black, Red, Orange, etc.. Who knows.

Seeing a watch like this out of context is not always a good idea. Meaning that if you are the middle of big city looking for desk divers you might pass this one over. Be on a boat, or at a tropic beach resort and the timepiece grabs at you. It just has a very tropic beach instrument look to it. Maybe check out the watch on your laptop while sitting at a pool to see what I mean.

While 44mm wide isn’t huge for a diver, it is 18mm thick – which is on the girthier side. A Much of this is due to the thick crystal and large rotating diver’s bezel. The Classico name doesn’t personally work for me. Dievas says that this watch embodies those traits more desired in dive in a classic sense. You also have a very handsome three-link metal bracelet (leather strap is also available). While it may be all well and true that the Classico Blue has classic dive watch characteristics, it just doesn’t look like a “Classico” to me. Look at other Dievas dive watches and the dial design looks as though it fits right in. They like playing with black backgrounds and interesting designed to arrange the dial components. The dial works, but I think the hands are a bit petite. This usually won’t cause a problem unless you are underwater, and it might be a tab bit hard to read the watch when it is darker, under water.

If you like darker watches, the Classico Blue has a PVD black coated version in addition to the brushed steel model. Price is just a bit more for the sand-blasted PVD watch if you like it better. Inside the watch is a Swiss ETA 2824 automatic movement. With a nicely architected case, 1000 meters of water resistance, and a Swiss automatic movement, the price for the Classico Blue watch is pretty fair. Prices start at $770 for the steel version with a leather strap ($850 with the metal bracelet), up to $950 for the PVD version on a metal bracelet ($870 in PVD on the leather strap). Both watches also come with an addition sports strap (probably rubber) with blue trim to match the dials. See where to buy below, and then tech specs below that. Oh, and the Classico Blue will be a limited edition model, but I am not sure of how many pieces.
