The Diamondback case design carries on the tradition of a shape now synonymous with the Creux Automatiq brand. The signature bevelled design and eclipse crown protectors have been slimmed down to allow this 40mm time-piece to sit comfortably on a range of wrist sizes. Its stunning combination of high polished and finely brushed surfaces blends seamlessly into the new Diamondback bracelet.
The bracelet design draws inspiration from one of nature’s most fierce and resilient desert predators – the Diamondback Rattlesnake. The CA-08 features a stunning two-tone bracelet with the centre links finished in 18ct gold PVD.
This piece is built to handle the elements – made from solid 316l stainless steel it is robust and has a water resistance of 50m. Each piece is finished with a 1.2 micron PVD clear coating which gives the watch added protection from daily wear.
Beneath the anti-glare coated sapphire crystal lens, lies a simple yet dynamic design. The signature diamond pattern dial is meticulously crafted from a single sheet of brass, plated with anti-corrosion tinted lacquer that gives the dial a rich and vibrant depth and often feels like it’s changing colour in different surroundings. The hour indicators and hands are slimmed down giving the timepiece a dress-watch feel and feature a Super-LumiNova coating for vibrant visibility at night.
The Diamondback series features the Swiss-made CA24-041 automatic movement and was designed and manufactured for Creux Automatiq by movement developer Swisstech. The movement is a stunning 33 jewel, three-hand date System that boasts a 36-hour power reserve and operates at a frequency of 28800A/H. The mechanics display the seconds’ indicator at 6 o’clock, which is a modification from the standard 3 hand complication.
