Mavrik Watch Company - Nereus V Dive Watch

Virginia based watch brand Mavrik Watch Company presents Nereus V, a classically designed diving watch fused with modern day materials and movements. Aesthetically, Nereus V takes inspiration from classic waterproof watches of 1920s and dive watches of 1950s.
For case and lugs, Nereus V took cues from the original Rolex Oyster from 1926 and Panerai “Radomir” 2533 from 1936.  Both of these iconic watches feature cushion cases with wire lugs. Traditional wire lugs require the use of specialized straps; however for Nereus V, Mavrik Watch Company has increased the diameter of the wire lug enabling the use of standard spring bars for easy strap changes and increased durability. 
Secondly, the signature, 120 click, domed sapphire crystal bezel with Super LumiNova® numerals and indices reminds us the first modern dive watch from 1953, the Blancpain Fifty Fathoms. 
Nereus V is available for all kinds of watch lovers, from the first-time quartz movement buyer to the collector looking for a limited edition piece. Check the video below.

Following three versions of Nereus V are available:-
  • 100 Piece Limited edition Bronze CuSn8 featuring the Swiss Made 26 Jewel Sellita SW200-1mechanical automatic movement.
  • Titanium Grade 2 also featuring the Sellita SW200-1
  • 316L Stainless Steel housing the 4TS Quartz™ VH31 Time Module (SII Seiko) Quartz movement.
 
Beating at the rate to 28,800 vph, Sellita SW200-1 Swiss made self winding movement offers power reserve up to 38 hours when fully wound. This 26 jewels movement employs Nivaflex barrel spring. The 4TS Quartz™ VH31 is the newest generation 2 jewel quartz movement from Time Module which ticks four times per second offering the convenience of a Quartz with the look of a mechanical.
All three variations feature 500M / 1650 FT Water Resistance, 120-Click Unidirectional Bezel, Sandwich Dial with a lower dial painted with Super LumiNova® luminescent indices, Super LumiNova® hands, engraved caseback and signed screw-down crown.
