May 2022 is here at last, and while the ice and snow of winter may be a distant memory for much of the world it’s never too early to prepare with an arctic-proof tool watch. aBlogtoWatch has you covered, with an ultra-tough dive watch built to withstand the harshest conditions in both heat and cold. One lucky winner in our aBlogtoWatch community will receive this limited edition Marathon Arctic Edition Large Diver’s Quartz (TSAR) watch, which blends aggressive utilitarian design with bulletproof build quality and a striking high-visibility white colorway.
At 41mm-wide, the 316L stainless steel case of the Marathon Arctic Edition Large Diver’s Quartz (TSAR) offers a bold stance on the wrist without becoming overwhelming. Everything about this design is aggressive and function-forward, with a masculine fully brushed finish highlighting the sharply angled lugs, squared-off crown guards, vertical case sides, and the heavy gear-toothed unidirectional bezel. Equipped with a full dive scale in stark black and white, this military-grade bezel design offers maximal legibility in any conditions. A ruggedly knurled screwdown crown helps this watch to achieve a robust 300 meters of water resistance, proving this durable design isn’t just for show.
Like the case, the dial of the Marathon Arctic Edition Large Diver’s Quartz (TSAR) is built to perform in even the toughest snowbound conditions. The brand’s iconic tritium tube-equipped syringe hands and tritium tube hour markers ensure this watch will glow for years without an external light source, providing reliable and vivid low-light legibility. This commitment to readability doesn’t stop here, however, as the matte optic white main dial surface and no-nonsense printed Arabic numerals offer maximum contrast and a clean, open dial layout. Marathon’s military heritage shines through in the smaller printed inner hours scale, allowing the Arctic Edition Large Diver’s Quartz (TSAR) to be used for instant 24-hour time conversions on the fly. The brand crowns this striking Arctic colorway with a central seconds hand in bold fire-engine red, allowing this crucial element to stand out against the visual backdrop while providing the design with an attractive splash of accent color.
Not all quartz movements are created equal, and the ETA F06 quartz powerplant inside the Marathon Arctic Edition Large Diver’s Quartz (TSAR) is every bit as durable as the watch that surrounds it. This high-torque movement offers innovative shock-resistance solutions to prevent damage in high-impact situations, and provides a reliable minimum battery life of nearly six years. Marathon fits the Arctic Edition Large Diver’s Quartz (TSAR) with a tough structured black rubber strap, offering durable construction and a classic, versatile look. MSRP for the Marathon Arctic Edition Large Diver’s Quartz (TSAR) currently stands at $1,080.
