Recent acquisition- bit unusual

on Thu May 11 2017, 11:53
So I have a massive soft spot for the PP Nautilus, especially the 5711. I spotted this on another forum in a discussion about homage watches, and ordered within the hour.

It's an Aramar Transatlantic. Made by the Dutch guys who used to be associated with Steinhart but it seems aren't any more. It's 316L SS, PVD coated, two hands, running a Ronda quartz. Sapphire crystal and 100M WR.

The dial is a loverly dark blue, fading a little at the edges- the grooves are deep and make the dial quite fascinating!



Quality is really good, feels nice to wear, and in the few weeks I've had it, not a hint of rub anywhere on the PVD. Cost about £170 all in.

Does this mean if it is PVD ( web site says it is ) the lovely black coat will scratch easy ?

Thanks

Very nice & really like the dial as well. I think that the absence of a sweep second hand compliments the design and look of the watch face. Very Happy
