Shad.ow (KJdIJ )nouna dark figure or image cast on the ground or
some surface by a body intercepting light. A shade or comparative
darkness.That is the consciousness attached to the new Dievas
Shadow from our tactical range of field watches. A spy name that
copulates visions of secrecy and imagination. The inspiration is to
design a watch loaded with the best technology whilst not
compromising visual impact and at the same time be versatile enough
to be used on a daily basis.
Only the best parts are used in the manufacturing of the watch, no
expenses sparred. Starting from the heart is the movement. A high
grade swiss ETA 2824 modified to Dievas specifications and also
include a custom Dievas DLC-treated CNC rotor. Each watch is
adjusted to 5 positions to its maximum efficiency for the most
accurate time telling by our experienced watchmakers.
The watchcase - CNC and milled in Germany from locally sourced high
grade 316L stainless steel. Upon close inspection of the case, one
can marvel at the precision we apply whilst turning the steel rods.
We employ tight tolerances making sure every angle and contours are
burred according to our specifications to an exact millimeter.
After inspecting the case for imperfections, our trained
perfectionist minded well experienced watchmakers will manually
finish the case.They are good at what they do because their
singular job at the atelier is to hand finish cases all day and
nothing else. The process is extremely time consuming and
painstakingly repeated till the desired finished is attained to
This adds a level of sheen akin to a high quality watch case to the
It might already sound like too much work but the Dievas Shadow
case is not anywhere close to done yet. After the case is hand
finished, the metallurgy enhancements begins. During this stage,
the watch case grows up, from a private to a mission veteran. We
want the watches to not just be visually appealing but also survive
the harsher environments when put into real field use.
Dievas together with one of the europe's most established materials
engineering company, partner to implement 6STEEL hardening to
watchmaking. For around 20 days, the steel will undergo high tech
heating procedures that will amplify the hardness of the watchcase
to 1300Hv, approximately 6 times the hardness of stainless steel.
This greatly improves scratch and abrasion resistance. For a evil
stealthy look befitting the title SHADOW, a black plasma coat is
applied on top of the hardened 6STEEL layer, This plasma black
layer at 1800HV is even harder then the 6steel treated steel.
Granted, most of these expensive and time consuming high tech tech
steel modifications are for most part impervious to the naked eye,
deemed unnecessary and over the top for most watch manufactures,
Dievas chose the higher ground just so we can give watch owners
value added protection in ensuring their cherished Dievas timepiece
will remain looking like brand new for extended periods of time and
feasibly even lapsing a person's lifetime.
The 6STEEL treatment is applied to the whole watch including the
midcase, bezel, crown, caseback. it is worth mentioning that the
6STEEL treatment is only available to be used on DIEVAS watches.
Poised with a striking physique, A Dievas Shadow caliper checks in
at 45mm x 54mm x 14.5m. Encompassed by a 0-60 click uni directional
bezel, a large swiss made anti glare high dome sapphire crystal
offers protection over a conspicuously fascinating dial and hand
set. Drawn in-house by our young graphics designers, the dial
focuses on micro detailing whilst endorsing the stealth/ lo-lite
There are 4 different shades of blackness on the dial alone, acting
as the backdrop and accentuating the dazzling original Dievas
bright colored hands. The yellowish highlighted color is actually
thick coatings of custom designed swiss SuperLuminova pigments,
chosen for its dual capability of having high visibility both
during the day and in low light/night conditions.
One can easily tell time at a quick glace, which is important for a
watch made for field operators. The Shadow is conservatively rated
at 500metres water resistance(WR). A double O-ring 8mm screw down
crown occupies the lower left hand corner for easy time
As a complete package, a genuine calf leather strap which is water
resistant treated and proudly handmade in Germany is included with
the Shadow. Extra G10 NATO miitary boost the options whichever way
one choose to wear the watch.
Our mission is to make an extremely durable watch suitable for the
avid professional diver as well as military personnel. This means
cutting down on watch-servicing intervals and bulking up the
metallurgy composition. Every part of the watch including the
caseback is hardened 6STEEL. Even if the watch is rated
conservatively at 500 m
