Ocean Crawler, based in Rochester, New York, specializes in automatic dive watches. Shown here with a black dial, blue dial and with a meteorite dial, is the Ocean Crawler Ocean Navigator, which features a sapphire-protected bezel and a patent-pending dual bezel and triple-crown-equipped case. The extra crowns at 10 o’clock and 8 o’clock control an inner solar compass bezel and an integrated helium release valve respectively.
At just over 43 mm, the solid titanium Ocean Navigator case is capped with an extra-thick 3.5mm domed sapphire crystal. Each watch is individually tested for water resistance to an amazing 600 meters, a standard considerably higher than used for many watches in this price range.
This water workhorse instrument is powered by a regulated version of the robust Swiss STP 1-11 automatic winding movement. Black and blue dial versions retail for $1,249 with the meteorite version a bit more at $1,499. With full confidence in its products, Ocean Crawler offers a full five-year warranty on all of its watches.
