With its latest dive project, Ocean Crawler decided to partner with TechnoTimeMachine (TTM), an independent design studio in Madrid, Spain. The result? The wild and labyrinthine dial of the Ocean Crawler Lume Rush Diver watch. Cleverly designed to be at once visually engaging and highly practical, the Lume Rush uses a twin-layer sandwich dial to create a dazzling light show at night.

A slim and elegant handset does its job without distracting from the main event. The bright Super-LumiNova C3 illuminates each of the Arabic numbers, which are arranged alternately on the outside and inside of an encircling line that only breaks between the 8 and each of the double-digit numerals. The gaps in what appears to be a continuous circle are necessary so that the top layer of the dial can be a single piece. This ensures absolute accuracy of the luminous cut-out. Without that, the precise design would simply not work. A lack of text on the dial gives a clean, bold look, and the logo (which would normally be pad-printed on the dial) pops up as a fully-lumed centerpiece, completing the complex design.

Inside the Ocean Crawler Lume Rush Diver watch is the Swiss-made, self-winding Sellita SW-200. Known as a reliable and durable movement, well-suited for life within a versatile dive watch. On the outside of the 44.2mm case, which measures 51.8mm from lug-to-lug, and stands 15mm tall on the wrist is a 120-click unidirectional bezel, treated with a luminous pip at 12 o’clock. This robust housing is water-resistant to 600 meters, thanks in part to the 4,5mm thick sapphire crystal.

This release follows on from the very successful re-release of the Ocean Crawler Core Diver watch but takes the design language in a completely different direction. Fans of the brand have a new style of watch to explore that boasts the same build quality and performance that they have come to expect from previous models.

Available on multiple straps, the Ocean Crawler Lume Rush Diver watch looks markedly different when paired with leather or rubber. With two dial colors to choose from — either a black or a blue sun-ray finish — customers can choose to set their watch for a smart casual setting (blue dial with brown leather strap, for example), or choose the other end of the spectrum by selecting the black dial on rubber for the sportiest option. Pre-orders for the Ocean Crawler Lume Rush Diver Watch will open on October 25th at 2 PM EST. The regular retail price will be $999, but for a limited time, these watches will be available for the pre-order price of $799 (with delivery scheduled for November 18th).

    No.

  • SuperStrapper

    This is a contemporary pilot’s watch, not a diver.

    • mach2guy

      Maybe the dial is useful for upside down flight?

  • Raymond Wilkie

    That dial is just plain annoying.
    Dive watch?

  • Ugo

    “slim and elegant” are not the first two word that come to my mind to describe it.
    nonetheless, truly it’s interesting and better than the too many pointless offer we often see nowadays.
    is that an HeEV that on the side?

  • FoundingFathersProud

    Sorry, truly. But, that is the ugliest dial I have every seen.

  • Jared

    imagine paying actual money for a design studio and getting that

    and if you don’t do your own designs and you don’t do the actual watch production(I assume these are outsourced chinese watches), can you even be called a watch brand?

  • gwd

    I love it! The dial is fun and unique and I’ve wanted a coin-edge bezel like that for a few years. Its a bit big and I don’t understand how a 20 click bezel can be useful. Sure its not 60 clicks?

  • DanW94

    The dial screams Crop Circle to me. It’s got a Nazca lines, ancient alien landing pad look to it.

  • Esteban

    “The necessary gaps in what appears to be a continuous circle are necessary”

    • Tempvs Mortvvs

      Well, they are that necessary, you know?

  • dperreno

    I agree with many of the posters, this is just ugly. Interesting, unique, but ugly. Also, the hands are way too narrow, they get lost in the crop maze of a dial.

  • Mikita

    I feel like the only thing I like is the dial. Other parts just don’t match it well, especially tiny narrow hands and fluted bezel. Brand’s name sounds like some heavy metal brand from northern Italy or so.

    I don’t mind the quirky dial numerals, and I can forget that dive watch was ever mentioned (nothing about it rubber strap aside I guess says dive watch), what I don’t like much is the maze pattern at the centre of the dial. Take that away and I think it’s not bad really. Oh, and make it a GMT!

  • You don’t need to dive to get the bends anymore. It can be done, safely, on land, by any desk divers out there.

  • Tempvs Mortvvs

    It’s water resistant to 60o meters? That’s as funky as a number as the dial itself.

  • Mr. Blandings

    I will go out on a limb and say that I think it is kinda cool. The face needs some refinement as the “12” looks like a “72”, the “7” looks like a “3”, and the maze pattern is a bit out of place.

  • Daniel Harper

    I really feel like these guys would be better off ditching the swiss movements, switching to an NH35 and cutting the price in half (maybe into 1/3)

  • Andre Braz

    Strange design, nothing matches. The worst is the onion bezel.

  • Pete Yo

    holy crap. I don’t even know what to focus on. I am glad I was sitting when I saw this, it gave me Vertigo.
