DIEVAS FOCAL - 6STEEL HARDENED STEEL TECHNOLOGY









THE FOCAL STORY

Our engineers at Dievas Uhren Technik have always adhered to the term progressive watchmaking. We thrive on improvisations to make new watches better than her predecessors. All these done in real time with feedback from sports/military professionals, horology enthusiasts and our watchmakers.



The pursuit of a robust and dependable watch began immediately after the release of the Dievas Vortex. One can now conveniently explore watch foras and reviews from actual owners to attest to the distinction of the Vortex. Not only does the watch exhibit unsurpassed high quality, aesthetically enticing but also presents impeccable value.


Shortly after, Dievas together with a high esteemed metallurgy company collaborate to bring the latest 6STEEL technology to the masses. Following both of our sold out 6STEEL watch models(THE REAPER AND VOYAGUER GMT), the Dievas FOCAL will be the first Dievas dive watch to inherit this new technical know-how.

 

The Focal point of the watch is the high spec watch case. Design based on a special 3 piece case construction, fabricated with high grade 316L stainless steel using the latest CNC technology. The 45mmx14.5mm(DxH) case is well defined with clean edges (traits of top quality machining). Each case is further refined by hand to attain that brilliance and sharpness usually associated with only the best. The case is then put through another QC check to eradicate the smallest of imperfections before going for the Dievas 6STEEL treatment.


One must know, 6STEEL is the hardening of the actual steel and not merely a foreign coating. Firstly, our premium 316L CNC watch case is heated in a mixture of carbon gases at precised low temperature to allow diffusion of atoms. This intricate process is duplicated repeatedly over long hours to superimpose supersaturation and concentration of carbon. The sudden immense energy from carbon atoms accumulation results in 30µm layered hardening of the case to 1300 Hv on the Vickers scale(6 times the original hardness of normal stainless steel). The toughened case is then put through a vacuum chamber for plasma coating to elevate the corrosion resistance, particularly sea water and sweat immunity. This multi-layering is done to the whole watch including the back case, Nothing is left to chance to create that robust watch we want. Each Focal sit for at least 2 weeks in the hardening chambers and goes through another QC check before being transferred back to the atelier for assembly.


The case is adorned with a 60min timing bezel for professional diving use. The enlarged unidirectional bezel with distinct gear-edged pattern is chosen for easy operations when wearing diving gloves. Each minute click maneuver is engaged with precision and authority. Not the sightless slop between clicks.


The Focal 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 adjustments. The surface is sealed with a 4mm thick blemish-free Swiss grade dome sapphire crystal that is treated with military grade anti-reflective coating for improved readability. On the opposite end, screw down solid back case watertight the watch from the underside.


The watch is powered by the ever so reliable and proven Dievas/Swiss automatic 28,000bhp mechanical automatic movement, ETA-2824-2, modified to Dievas specifications which includes 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.


For the watch dial, we designed an easy to read design whilst still maintaining a certain uniqueness akin to the Dievas flair. A dark gray surround encompasses 60 minute markers around the main dial which shows off an individualistic 12 o'clock marker. Over-sized watch hands which reads hours, minutes and seconds are chosen for easy readability especially when applied with luminous material . The dials and hands are filled with generous amount of Grade A Swiss SuperLuminova and will glow for hours enabling time telling in low light conditions. The date of the month is positioned on a cutout above the 6 o'clock marker.


To complete the package, we included a molded anti-static rubber strap 22mm, with a sturdy solid CNC-Machined stainless steel clasp with diver suit extension. This custom strap is made from pure Italian rubber, fill the lugs and contours around the wrist for improved wear and wrist presence.

Accompanying the Focal is the water resistant carry case together with an additional waterproof leather strap and changing tool.



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 meters WR, each FOCAL is individually tested for way beyond its WR before leaving the factory to ensure a no-leak policy.

Every Focal watch will come with a 2-year international warranty. Admittedly, while the Focal's conservative appearance might appear too understated for some. Our goal is not to redesign the working mans utilitarian watch, rather we want to build a watch worthy to stand tallest amongst the competition, a watch that marries old artisan watchmaking passion with new world modern technology. A watch that is not merely a pretty face but possess real usability.


We will like the Dievas Focal to be known as the Serious, Simple watch.

Have been Looking VERY much forward to see this one, and I'm liking every bit I see!!! Truly perfection. Regretting just pulling the trigget on another watch, cause if not I would be ALL over the Focal (but it is the next on the radar 4 sure). Great job Anders!

This is an excellent watch overall. I just wish the L2L is closer to 50-52mm rather than 54mm and I would be all over this watch. I will have to keep waiting for another of your creation that will have L2L that is more around 50-52mm. I'm keeping my fingers crossed. Great execution Anders.

Well, as you know buddy, there is ALWAYS something one wants. And even as I have been awaiting the FOCAL (but all was down to "how will the the dial look?" potential deal-breaker), when something comes along that one just needs to move fast on, well, that´s just the way the cookie crumbles. But now that I have seen it, it´s the one I will save up for next.
