A helium valve is located at the 9 o'clock position of the watch case making it a versatile diver watch that can be used by professional divers.

Initial Impression: Fantastic! It is just a beautiful, functional and elegant timepiece. For those of you that love the simplicity of a three hand diver with the versatility of a watch that can go from the wet suit to the board room then you can stop your search right here and now. This is the one. I am totally impressed with the look, feel, fit and finish of this watch.
Packaging: Nice watch case that stores extra straps and spare links. The case allows for secure shipping of the watch. My watch came on the stainless steel bracelet and included in the box were a leather strap and a rubber strap. I will include a photo of the extra straps but this watch is meant to be worn on the bracelet and can't see myself wearing it any other way.

Watch and Case:
Case and Watch Case Back:
I love this clasp and I am glad to see that more and more brands are using it. I think it offer maximum functionality. It allows you to size the watch and make the micro adjustments you want, or need, from day to day or season to season.
Clasp fully open:
This watch looks great on the wrist. I think it wears a little bigger than the 43mm spec, more like a 44mm watch. Maybe it is the larger crown or the bezel that gives it that presence. Whatever it is I think it works well in this size range.
Wrist shot at the wheel:
Straps and Bracelet: I have sized mine to fit my 8.25 inch wrist and I have 2 spare links. I'm assuming a 9 inch wrist would be no problem and with the divers extension built into the clasp you can get another half inch or so if you still need more room. You can add additional links as well.
Comparison to Boschett Cave Dweller:
These use the same clasp and are both larger tool divers at heart. I really like the Boschett. The crown on the Prometheus is easier to grasp so I'd give it an advantage there. I like the lumed bezel as well. I think the blue lume on the Boschett blends well with it's white and blue trimmed dial. The Prometheus does the same with it's green lume and green trim and bezel features.

Movement Miyota 9015: http://www.citizen.co.jp/miyota_mvt/9015/pdf/spec_9015.pdf
This is an excellent timepiece from a very reliable brand. The movement is smooth and performs well within the expected specs for a 9015. The watch is sized very nicely and should appeal to a wide range of customers as it is not too small, nor too large. I think this is a very versatile watch that cam be worn as both a casual diver and a dress diver. The fit and finish of this piece would make you think it is much more expensive than the retail price it is offered at. It really has a lot going for it and anyone looking for a versatile diver should take a look at this watch. It comes in a few other variations.
You can see them all here:
1) Uses my favorite clasp
2) 120 click unidirectional bezel with a lumed sapphire bezel insert
3) 43mm size appeals to the majority of customers
4) Very good lume properties
5) Reliable Miyota 9015 movement
6) Nice size crown for easy adjustments.
7) The bracelet is large enough for even some of the biggest wrists.
1) Not really anything to point out. It comes with two straps and a bracelet so you can wear it however you choose.
2) 350 ATM might be a little more than any of us will ever need.http://www.watchfreeks.com//www.pinterest.com/pin/create/extension/
