I will admit that the Pelican Case and custom case-back removal tool which the Kazimon “Eintausend” Diver’s Watch ships was the “deal sealer” for me. But the more I look into this German watchmaker’s “flagship diving watch,” the more I am attracted to what you actually get for it’s budget price tag of 2033$US.
The “Eintausend” (German for 1000) is almost a steal in some ways. The black diving bezel sits on top of 44mm casing (cut from a high grade stainless steel) that houses a thick 3mm domed sapphire crystal with an AR coating – call it scratch proof for all intensive purposes. You get a 25-jewel Swiss movement, inside a shockproof and antimagnetic construction. The face and hands are coated in C3 SuperLuminova for excellent readability. It’s simply finished with the date between the four and five hour.
As our editor in Geneva put it, “you are buying a diver’s watch with similar functionality to the new Rolex Deep Sea at a 1/5th of the price.” And by golly, they even take Paypal.
