Time Concepts ProTek Dive Series 1004O Diving Watch

If you’re someone that regularly spends your time diving underwater, then one of the best gadgets that you can get for yourself would be a diving watch. As every experienced diver should know, it’s very important to keep track of time when diving underwater, not only so that you can know exactly how much time you’ve spent underwater, but also to accurately measure both bottom time and depth. By doing so, divers can ultimately ensure that they’ll be able to return back to the surface safely when they’re supposed to in order to avoid life-risking situations. So, no matter if you’re a begginer diver or even an experienced diver looking for a new diving timepiece that can keep you safe during your time underwater, then consider checking out the Time Concepts ProTek Dive Series 1004O Diving Watch.

The Time Concepts ProTek Dive Series 1004O is a high-end and ultra-durable quartz diving watch that features a Water-Resistance Rating of up to 300m, all while also boasting an impressive 10 Years Battery plus a self-powered ProGlo Swiss Illumination technology that provides a non-stop continuous glow for its watch hands and dial numbers for up to 25 years.

Designed with the uttermost durability in mind thanks to more than 90 years of experience in watch manufacturing partially that partially come from the past-history that ProTek’s founder and owner Barry Cohen has with his former Luminox brand, the Time Concepts’s team came up with the ProTek Dive Series, a line of durable diving watches that are solely made of the finest available components and best materials possible.

What’s more is that the Time Concepts ProTek Dive Series 1004O was also recently named an Official Watch of the U.S. Marine Corps, which ultimately rates it as one of the best diving watches that you can currently find available on the market.

Now, let’s have a more detailed look at it and check out everything that this newly released diving watch has to offer you.

DESIGN & SPECS

Starting with the watch’s size, the Time Concepts ProTek Dive Series 1004O comes a fairly standard size for a diving watch (meaning it’s not too bulky), coming equipped with a 42mm Military-Grade Carbon Composite Fiber Case that’s specifically made of a mix of 30% carbon and 70% Polycarbonate.

The ProTek Dive Series 1004O’s 42mm Military-Grade Carbon Composite Fiber Case not only makes this diving watch rather lightweight, but also, very strong and extremely durable, especially in comparison to other diving watches made of different materials (such as stainless steel, titanium, ceramic or some other form of carbon mix), which might either be heavier, or more fragile, depending on what material they use for their case’s construction.

Then, when it comes to its design, this diving watch features an ultra-modern and minimalist design, as its main body comes in a Dark Grey Carbon color, while the interior of its Bezel and also its Crown both feature colorful accents in one bright flat color that create a smooth and modern contrast with the watch’s Dark Grey body.

Since our review unit is the ProTek Dive Series 1004O (with “O” standing for Orange), it’s worth noting that the 1004O model also features its color-accents for its Bezel’s interior and its Crown in a Bright Orange color, with the particular extra detail that its wrist-strap also comes colored in that same Bright Orange color-accent.

Speaking of the watch’s wrist-strap, it’s also worth mentioning that this sleek diving watch also comes equipped with a high-quality 22mm by 20mm Genuine Rubber Strap that’s remarkably comfortable to wear.

Moreover, the watch’s bezel also integrates a high-grade glass cover made of Sapphire Crystal that also comes coated with a layer of Antireflective Coating that makes reading the time from this diving watch fairly easy at any time of the day, no matter if you’re under direct sunlight (as its Antireflective Coating reflects away any sunlight) or even under low-light or pitch-black conditions at nighttime.

In terms of its time-tracking capabilities, since the Time Concepts ProTek Dive Series 1004O is, as said earlier, a quartz diving watch, its time-system is powered by a Japan Quartz Miyota 2S60 3 Hand & Date Movement, which boasts an impressive 10 Years Battery.

Last but not least, this diving watch also boasts self-powered ProGlo Swiss Illumination technology that’s proprietary from Trigalight, which works based on tritium gas-filed borosilicate luminous glass tubes integrated directly onto the watch’s hands and in parallel to its dial numbers in order to ultimately provide a non-stop continuous glow for its watch hands and dial numbers that can last for up to 25 years.

PACKAGING

We were also super pleased with the watch’s packaging, as our review unit of the ProTek Dive Series 1004O Diving Watch came very neatly packed inside a hard carboard box and completely surrounded by a thick layer of shock-resistant foam.

In fact, the watch’s body even came surrounded by an extra and slightly thinner layer of shock-resistant foam, and was also carefully packed inside a high-grade plastic covering that further protects its Sapphire Crystal glass cover from any potential damage (scratches, bumps, etc.).
