 Vintage California Titanium



The Dievas Vintage California Titanium is the latest addition to the Dievas range of mechanical watches.

Inspired by military watches of yesteryear. The California dial was used by the German Kampfschwimmer during the 1940s. The california dial was essential to the German Kampfschwimmer team. To improve night visibility of the original sigle layered dial, a dual layered dial is used in the Dievas Vinage California Titanium. The SuperLuminova luminous is applied to the bottom layer while an opaque top layer with laser cut indices allow the luminous to shine through. The segmented gold luminous hands were choosen specifically to be as close to the historic model.

The Dievas Vintage California Titanium features a Swiss Made Unitas 6497 mechanical movement further decorated with Côtes de Genève and blued screws. With a titanium display back for owners to view the beautifully finished movement at work.

The 47mm titanium case is fine satin brushed throughout. With contoured sides that flows with the wrist the watch was modelled after the original watch. Removeable 26mm wire lugs make changing straps simple. Domed scratch resistant sapphire crystal with antireflective coating enables easy readibility under all light conditions. The 5mm diamond shaped crown ensures easy time setting even with gloves.

The Dievas Vintage California Titanium comes with a Dievas signed thick genuine calf leather strap with beige stitching and Dievas signed buckle.

Very nice Anders that should go over great. If I did not have the SS model I'd have to add it to the list. Can't wait to see who gets on on the wrist first. ;)

Wow...striking, classic new addition to the Dievas lineup!!!ThumbsUp02.gif

Love the look of the sandwich dial on this one hearteyes.gif...but like some others, I'm a little concerned with whether or not I could pull off the 47mm diameter "cushion-style" case.

Hmmm...I might be able to do this one...

Those that are familiar with the Orsa Monstrom and the Dievas Vintage Kampfschwimmer on "the wrist"....How much bigger do you think this would wear than the Monstrum??

...will keep an eye on this one for sure...

It fits really well. Because they are only 52mm lugs to lugs.
My lady sales staff in the shop has a 6" wrist and can wear it without a problem.

And for those with the Vintage Kampfschwimmer. Trust me, this is a different beast altogether.

I dropped by Anders' shop today in Singapore to pick up a few straps and some other stuff and got to check out the new Vintage California in Titanium.

It's a very attractive watch with a very subdued titanium look to it. I have seen other titanium watches that seem to be shouting -- but not this one. The sheen is just as I want it. Very serious-looking but with good design lines. It's exactly the same in dimensions as the stainless steel Kampy that I already have. This watch is also very light and doesn't feel like you have a big watch strapped on. I have a small wrist at about 6.5 to 6.75 inches and had no problems with this one. Since I don't have an Orsa, I wouldn't be able to make a comment on the size and feel comparison.

The double dial is a good treatment by Anders and maybe this is why the lume had improved.

This is a must-plan-to-buy watch for me. In due time, I'll take one home. I liked it a whole lot.

Anders, kudos on this new one!hand6.gifhand6.gifhand6.gif

Thanks Anders and Bigrusty for the feedback here.thankyou.gif

Anders - Thanks for the information on the lug-to-lug dimension.  That is really the most helpful dimension when evaluating the wearablility on the wrist.  The Orsa Monstrum at a 56mm lug-to-lug  is a significant piece on the wrist, but I still feel it works well for me. 

My wrist is just a hair under 7.25" diameter so this Vintage California would be an easy wear!!!  This one just joined my "To Acquire" list!!!

Bigrusty - how cool to be able to swing by the Ander's shop in Singpore!!!  Your "in-person" opinion/advice is great to here!!

Sounds like Anders has a great one here!ThumbsUp02.gif
