The Ghost case shape (which is now the signature for the Creux Automatiq brand) was first shaped and cast out of solid sterling silver at the home workshop of CA founder Dane Rumble in 2009 (you can find more about CA’s history here). This housing was used as a base guide to source the right movement and component manufacturers, and to this day remains true to its original design. It is beautifully balanced – it’s design has both originality, and draws inspiration from the classic sports timepieces that have stood the test of time.
No corners are cut in the manufacturing process, the stainless steel casings come from milled 316L steel blocks that are precision cut and then polished by hand. For example, the Diamondback CA08 features a stunning combination of high polished and matte brushed surfaces, creating a dynamic finish. The case is completed with an anti-scratch 0.3 micron PVD clear coating – the thickest PVD available.
