Thanks to Mark S. from Cleveland, Ohio for a follow-up wrist shot and some thoughts on the Nivrel Deep Ocean GMT watch he won back in August here on aBlogtoRead.com. Here are some words from him on the German timepiece:
“Firstly, I’d like to thank Nivrel for allowing me the opportunity to win the new “Deep Ocean GMT diver.” I’d just like to point out some of the features that set this watch apart and easily made it one of my favorites. Starting from the inside, I’m very happy that the watch is powered by the reliable Swiss ETA 2836-2 movement with GMT hand complication. When I first received the watch I put it on a timegrapher and was incredibly impressed with the accuracy of the watch. It’s currently running around +2 or +3 seconds a day. The GMT hand is a nice extra to the watch and adds a little flavor to the design without making the dial too busy. The bezel, which also acts as a third time zone, is uni-directional and has very smooth racheting. I was extremely impressed when I pulled out the screw-down crown. Unlike other watches that have shaky stems this stem didn’t have any wobble. The face is far more attractive in person than in pictures and the luminova is great for viewing in the dark. Probably, my favorite feature of the watch is it’s weight. The Deep Ocean GMT offers a heavy enough weight to remind you that your wearing a serious watch but doesn’t get in the way. The deployment clasp is top-notch. The only thing I might change is the rubber strap that came with the watch.”
Thanks Mark and congrats again to him and all other monthly aBlogtoRead.com watch giveaway winners.
