February 2022 is here at last, and as winter drags on it’s the perfect time to find a rugged watch to handle the cold, from mountain peaks to the freezing depths of the ocean. To help with whatever cold-weather adventures this winter has in store, aBlogtoWatch is giving away a rugged and ultra-capable dive watch from Ocean Crawler that should easily tackle whatever this winter brings. One lucky aBlogtoWatch community member will receive this limited edition Ocean Crawler Ocean Navigator 45 watch, which combines tough construction and extreme water resistance with adventure-ready functionality for both land and sea.
At 45mm-wide and 15.1mm-thick, the Ocean Crawler Ocean Navigator 45’s fully brushed case strikes an imposing, purposeful figure on the wrist, but remains light and durable thanks to its 100% titanium construction. The case shape adds an aggressive twist to classic dive watch cues, with twisted lyre lugs augmented by an oversized crown at 3 o’clock. Two additional crowns at 8 o’clock and 10 o’clock operate a manual helium release valve and the inner solar compass bezel, adding robust functionality for both land and sea. For this unique limited edition model, Ocean Crawler adds a stunning blue sapphire dive bezel insert, evoking the deep and classic look of vintage Bakelite dive bezels while including a fully lumed scale. This rugged, powerful look isn’t just for show, however as the Ocean Crawler Ocean Navigator 45 offers a massive 600 meters of water resistance.
Outside of the intricate inner compass bezel, the Ocean Crawler Ocean Navigator 45’s dial is clean and handsome with a focus on legibility. A mix of applied and printed indices coupled to a color-coded set of dauphine hands makes this high-visibility design easy to read at a glance, and adds a unique twist on heavy-duty midcentury dive watch cues. The rich midnight blue sunburst pattern of the dial surface below calls to mind the dark abyss of the deep ocean, and Ocean Crawler reinforces this deep-sea theme with its bright orange “Shipwreck Hunter” script at 6 o’clock.
Ocean Crawler equips the Ocean Navigator 45 with the robust and reliable Sellita SW200-1 automatic movement. With proven performance including a solid 44 hour power reserve and a smooth 28,800 bph beat rate, this movement should hold up to the toughest underwater excursions. To complete the look, Ocean Crawler mounts the watch on a durable black kevlar strap. Only 100 examples of the Ocean Crawler Ocean Navigator 45 will be made with the limited edition blue sapphire bezel. MSRP for the Ocean Crawler Ocean Navigator 45 is currently $1,299.
