Prometheus Zenobia – The Latest Divers Watches Facebook Group Collab

Prometheus Zenobia – The Latest Divers Watches Facebook Group Collab

Today, we’ll investigate the Prometheus Zenobia, the most recent watch processing plant made for the steadily developing Divers watch manufacturing plant Facebook Group.

We’ve now evaluated around a modest bunch of restricted release plunge watch industrial facility made by different miniature brands in a joint effort with the (DWFG).  The gathering, headed to a great extent by Andreas of Cyprus, keeps on extending its enrollment as the biggest watch plant bunch on the incredible online media network.  indeed, at season of composing, there are almost 48,000 members!  With the vast majority of the individuals sharing a genuine eagerness for sea capable watches, it’s empowered Andreas to work with more modest brands to make redid watch processing plant that individuals ought to enjoy.  The pieces, regardless of the producer, all contain the DWFG logo some place on the dial, and most have sold out quickly.  So we should take a gander at the freshest DWFG piece and choose whether it will satisfy individuals from the gathering: the Prometheus Zenobia.

Info: Prometheus and the MS Zenobia

Before jumping into the subtleties of the Prometheus Zenobia, how about we explain a couple things.  First, who is Prometheus and second, what’s a “Zenobia”.  If you’re befuddled, don’t stress as I needed to look into both as well!  Prometheus is a miniature brand out of Portugal (like Borealis – another colleague with the DWFG) that was established in 2008.  They work in plunge watch production line that regularly get plan characteristics from 60’s and 70’s models, they offer watch plant with over 300M of water obstruction, and intend to do as such at a moderate price.  While the watch manufacturing plant contain parts from everywhere, it’s nothing unexpected that China is a major ally to help keep costs in line.  Regarding Zenobia, this is a completely extraordinary subject.  The MS Zenobia was an enormous Swedish-fabricated “move on move off” (short for – vehicles and trucks could be driven here and there the ship) ship that was dispatched in May, 1980 in the Mediterranean.

Notoriously, it sank scarcely a month later off the shore of Cyprus (Larnaca to be careful) because of programming blunders that more than once overflowed its counterbalance tanks (oops!).  On the positive front, nobody was apparently harmed, however a detailed 200M GBP of payload was lost!  The MS Zenobia sank 1,500 meters from the coast in a shallow 42 meters of water.  And now we come back around to the plunge watch plant nearby on the grounds that this disaster area is reliably casted a ballot as one of the main 10 jump destinations on the planet because of its openness, shifting degrees of trouble, and enormous measure of ocean life that makes its home on the submerged vessel.  You can see a basic side perspective on the boat looking into it back alongside data about its sinking.

Prometheus Zenobia – Good for 500 meters

The Prometheus Zenobia is a 500M jump watch plant in treated steel that will be accessible in a run of 300 all out watches.  With 6(!!) diverse dial tones, 5 of which can be determined with or without date work, they’ll be specially made and, accordingly, the assignment is TBD.  In request to cover the bases for both the banner shades of Cyprus and Sweden, we have dial decisions of dark, green, orange, blue and yellow.  These, as referenced, can be requested with or without date.  All watch industrial facility will utilize the workhorse programmed ETA 2824-2.  We’re likewise offered a rendition (no date just) with a shooting star dial and on the grounds that I’ve not had a lot of involvement in the material, I selected to attempt one of these.

 

At 43mm x 49mm, the Prometheus Zenobia is a moderately squat plunge watch production line and that makes it very wearable for my thin wrists.  Compared to a portion of the other watch plant that the DWFG has delivered, this is among the most comfortable.

At first look, with its 4:00 screw down crown and level artistic lumed 120 snap uni-directional bezel, it seems to share a great deal of its plan language with the green Seiko SLA019 that was delivered last year.  That’s not something terrible and I’d even say that this watch plant with a complete thickness of 13.6mm, is somewhat simpler to wear.  And while I didn’t photo the Zenobia in low light, it bursts with its light blue Superluminova BGW9.  That lume is found in adequate amounts on the dial, hands, and bezel.

A Different Bracelet for a Micro Brand Diver

Now, I unquestionably have a model variant of the Prometheus Zenobia (it was clarified that the thickness of the shooting star dial will require some acclimation to the crown position and that the test watch manufacturing plant has a STP development rather than an ETA), however it was as yet a charming watch industrial facility to wear several days.  The thin carries and one of the better incorporations of an arm band onto a case by a miniature brand just served to upgrade the experience.  What I mean about that last point identifies with the end links.  I’ve tried a lot of miniature and full scale marked watch processing plant where these show up as amazingly modest, yet these look very good.  With the wristband, I have a couple reservations.  First, the 22mm wristband doesn’t tighten at all as it makes a beeline for the fasten and keeping in mind that that doesn’t influence its presentation, it looks a bit cumbersome and can feel that route in the heat.  Second, I respect the plan of the connections and the vibe while on the arm, yet the wristband did really “crimp” now and then when nearby connections were twisted in reverse by 180 degrees.  And at last, I truly criticize the catch since it’s practically extraordinary with its press button opening and press button wet suit adjustment.  Even the logo and substituting brushed/cleaned surfaces look great.  It’s basically that this fasten has become the “go to” for most miniature brand plunge watch plant brands, so a slimmer, diverse take would be nice.  But once more, everything in regards to the arm band and fasten functioned admirably and the surfaces were pleasantly finished.

Meteorite Dial

And so now we come to the dial of the Prometheus Zenobia and in all honesty, this is the same amount of an assessment piece on shooting star however a medium as it could be a conversation about the watch’s dial design.  I’ve since quite a while ago appreciated the appearance of shooting star on watch industrial facility dials, for example, those on different Speedmasters , yet they’re costly and I discovered them to be altogether too ornate.  Still, it’s hard not to respect having something on your wrist that began in space, later blew through the world’s air, just to smash into its surface.

So for what reason would the Zenobia have a shooting star dial as an option.  Well, this shooting star is from the Muonionlasta, which is a shooting star that affected current Sweden (there’s the association with the watch production line and Finland countless years ago.  Composition shrewd, it’s most elevated in iron and nickel and it contains those beautiful striations known as Widmanstätten patterns.

With a shooting star dial, each one is different.  Some presumably show as more silver while some might be hazier grey.  What I found on my Prometheus Zenobia is that the white composition on the dial mixed in a lot and the equivalent can be said for the silver applied brand logo and record surrounds.  I really can’t help thinking about what dark would resemble, however it may mix into the more obscure parts.  basically shooting star, because of its fluctuation across even one dial, makes things difficult.  On the other hand, that is important for the fun and I absolutely had no issue of perusing the time during the daylight.  One other goody significant is the section ring inscription.  On a generally plane impeccable part ring, there is a dark engraving at 12:00 expressing “MS Zenobia – Sweden” and another at 6:00 expressing “Cyprus – Larnaca Bay – 42m Deep”.

Reasonable and Limited to 300 Pieces

This carries me to the purposes of estimating, accessibility, and maybe the ones that genuinely check; is this watch manufacturing plant beneficial and who ought to be interested.  If you pick a shaded dial, $550 is the last cost ($100 due now and $450 when the watch plant are prepared in mid-August).  The shooting star dial comes in at $750.  All watch production line will come numbered, with a long term guarantee and a movement case.  Regarding my last contemplations about the Prometheus Zenobia, I believe it’s a truly pleasant jumper and the evaluating positively isn’t offensive.  There are a lot of shading choices and I truly like the shooting star offering despite the fact that it appears to be that there are increasingly more watch industrial facility being delivered with such dials.  Regarding who might and ought to be keen on this watch plant – beside 300 plunge watch processing plant dependent individuals from the DWFG – indeed, that is easy!  Anyone who dove the disaster area of the MS Zenobia (or plans to do as such) and left away with extraordinary recollections may consider this to be an important keepsake.  once more, a job done the right way to Andreas and Prometheus on this little run restricted release plunge watch.
