moVas Professional Diver
The Professional Diver features a sub sec, GMT, linear power reserve indicator and a 30atm rating, something exceptionally rare in Asian assembled dive watches. The bezel design features a CNC machined grip and is intentionally designed to be 6mm high for ease of handling. The additional height also gives the illusion of depth for the dial, making the watch appear more sculptured. The lugs are also designed to hug the wrist better and make for a much better fitting watch for smaller wrists. The Professional Diver is different to the other designs in that the bezel has numerals for 15-0, is accented in orange and has a more subdued GMT hand. It is also bead blasted for a more robust appearance and comes with 2 link stainless steel bracelet with a diver's extension. 50 pieces of this design has been produced and each watch is numbered.

moVas AG Diver
Where as most MoVas watches highlight their legibility and clarity in the presentation of time, the AG diver does the complete opposite. It takes the form factor of a dive watch, but strips it of all it's complexities to further highlight its true sculptural form. Still the usual dive watch specs are covered, 120 click anti-clockwise unidirectional rotating bezel, crown protector with double crown locking mechanism, Superluminova C3 lume, anti-shock and large lume pip. Beyond that, the AG diver also features a sub sec, GMT, linear power reserve indicator and a 30atm rating, something exceptionally rare in Asian assembled dive watches.

The bezel design features a CNC machined grip and is intentionally designed to be 6mm high for ease of handling. The markings are kept to minimum, only showing the important countdown markers. The additional height also gives the illusion of depth for the dial, making the watch appear more three dimensional. The lugs are also designed to hug the wrist better and make for a much better fitting watch for smaller wrists. The AG Diver is different to the other designs in that the bezel has countdown markers for 15-0, is monochrome and has a black on black sandwich dial. It is bead blasted for a more modern appearance and comes with our very own unique 2 link stainless steel bracelet with a diver's extension. 50pieces of this design has been produced and each watch is numbered.
