Well as some of you know. Sean (Dedward) listed his Kremke Subzilla for sale last week. Well at first I knew I didn't have the funds to purchase this fine timepiece, but I was able to trade my Invicta SAN III (SW200) Automtic 3 hand towards the price and make-up the difference with some of my expected tax return money and "Voila" I was able to bring this bad boy home.

I have to say that this transaction went great with Sean. I couldn't have had a better business dealing then I did with him. The watch was shipped the same day that we made the deal and it does not have a flaw or blemish on it. As he stated in his thread "Like New" is exactly what it is.

I have to say that the "Fricker" designed case is out of this world and the overall design of the watch is just fantastic. This thing has some real heft to it weight wise. If you want a true German Made dive watch thisone meets the bill. Now to the photos. I will just preface that I borrowed these photos from Sean because well you all know that I'm not a photographer. Thanks for looking and thanks to Sean for making this dream watch a reality for me

SUBZILLA

Introducing our flagship Diving watch. The Subzilla. An instrument designed by the mantra “form follows function”.

The design brief was to design and engineer a tool watch that met and exceeded all the requirements of a professional diver followed by distinct aesthetics and style.

The Subzillas’ long list of features includes a Super-grip Unidirectional Bezel (S.U.B.) to facilitate easy use when using gloves, whilst the engraved elapsed time scale helps professionals monitor the length of their dives.

It has an integrated Helium Escape Valve to facilitate divers engaged in saturation diving and coupled with a screw-locked crown and screw-down solid case back, it can withstand a depth rating of 1000 meters / 100 atmospheres.

The case is milled out of a solid block of surgical grade stainless steel and houses a thick inner case made of soft iron, which shields the automatic movement against the effects of magnetism. Within lies the heartbeat of this rugged tool, the tried and tested Swiss Made automatic movement, the ETA 2824-2.

This instrument is set with an extra thick scratchproof sapphire crystal, which has been coated with an anti-reflective solution on the inside to ensure exceptional legibility.

The matte black dial features luminous hands and markers, which are coated in Super-Luminova™ C3 for optimum luminescence in dark conditions.
The minute hand is prominent and lacquered in orange to ensure quick and accurate reading of the elapsed time during your dive.

Its functions include: hours, minutes, seconds and date with quick correction and hacking feature.

The Subzilla comes on a satin finish stainless steel bracelet, which is fastened via screw-locked bars, preventing any accidental loss of your prized instrument.

Bracelet features a micro-adjustable flip lock clasp with an integrated diving extension feature to enable use over the sleeve of your wetsuit.

Each watch is individually numbered and is detailed with an engraved case back, signed crown and signed bracelet clasp..

This rugged instrument is presented to you in a Pelican™ brand case with warranty card, instruction booklet, polishing cloth, and a nylon Nato G10 dive strap.
