Hands on Review: CHRONOLOGIA Trigalight Dive Watch

In this ‘Hands on Review’ section, I am sharing my first impression on the Trigalight Dive Watch from young micro watch brand CHRONOLOGIA, which is specialised in the production of affordable tactical watches.

The package I received from the brand consists of a quartz powered dive watch and a miniature torch labelled CHRONOLOGIA inside a black CHRONOLOGIA pouch along with international warranty card and instructions for use.
Exterior design of the watch is outstanding. This is a sturdy sports watch offers water resistance of 20 ATM (200 meters), most suitable for recreational diving and other water sports.
The rugged exterior of this diving watch comprises of light weight carbon fibre case, stainless steel case back, sapphire coated mineral glass, aluminium rotating bezel and a comfortable silicon strap. With a diameter of 46 mm, this diving watch is a treat to the lovers of adventurous packed modern sports watches.
It triple layered dial is uncluttered and easy to read. It features luminescent hands & applied indexes and a date window at 3’o clock. Time and date can be set with the screw-in crown at 3’o clock. In addition, the dial boasts Trigalight illumination tubes at 12,3, 6 and 9 o’clock for enhanced visibility during poor light conditions. The unique illumination technology employed in this watch does not require exposure to sunlight for recharging and can last for approximately 25 years.
With an affordable pricing range starting from 129 Euros, this sports watch is a perfect accessory for diving enthusiasts who look for an accessible yet action packed dive watch. Mechanical watch lovers may not be impressed when it comes to inner mechanisms as these watches are equipped with quartz movements. Date version is equipped with Ronda 515 calibre and chronograph model houses Ronda 5030D. Both quartz movements are manufactured in Switzerland by Ronda.
Stainless steel back features impressive design elements with model specifications engraved on it. The black silicon strap with pin buckle is comfortable to wear.
Currently, Chronologia is accepting pre-orders: €129 for Chronologia Dive Watch (date verison) and €218 for Chronologia Dive Chronograph. These Dive Watches can be pre ordered via their crowd funding campaign: https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/187150110/chronologia-trigalight-dive-watch
