The case features an offset knurled crown at 4 o’clock, tucked away for comfort. At 2 o’clock is the HEV (Helium Escape Valve), designed to equalise internal pressure of the watch when returning from extended periods at extreme depths.

The hooded lugs give the watch a masculine wrist presence while eliminating the need for SELs (solid end links) so that bracelet installation is a breeze. Turn the watch over and you’ll see an incredibly deep and detailed engraving of a sea monster, inspired by the Paper Nautilus myth from South African folklore.

The dial is precisely crafted with slabs of bead-blasted steel, set on top of a sandwich dial, for a display with incredible depth. X1-Old Radium Super-LumiNova® is used for an incredible night-time glow. The custom date wheel is also luminous, ensuring legibility even during the twilight hours.

The heart of this beast is the tried and true Swiss made ETA 2824-2. This is a solid work-horse movement with 25 jewels, 38 hour power reserve, Incabloc shock protection, and both hacking and hand-winding features.

The bezel is a solid stainless construction, with precise 120-clicks that feels extremely solid and reliable. A luminous pip at 12h indicates the start time of a dive. 

Each watch comes standard with a bead-blasted bracelet with micro adjust clasp, and a natural rubber strap, perfect for water sports of any kind. For a more casual look, we recommend the thick leather strap.

    Had my Beguela hand delivered at my house in Auckland by the creator and designer of Draken timepeaces Mike himself, what an honour.
    This is an exquisite timepiece not only in quality and style, but the detail is amazing.
    I am looking forward to new adventures with this timepiece.
    This timepeace was created with passion and it clearly shows.
    Thank you Mike and Draken.
