Diamondback CA-08 on FKM Rubber
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.
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.
