Who are we to judge? Iím choosing my words carefully here because this has obviously borrowed from and perhaps even bastardized the holiest of holiest.



But it is what it is and for anyone looking for a fun quartz diver, the Abbisso 100ATM from Strumento Marino might provide a good deal of enjoyment.



If thatís you; then keep reading along for the full break down on this controversial looking diver but if you feel outraged (there does seem to be a lot of outrage these days) then take solace in these pics of my beautiful PROPLOF.



The Abisso has a large 46mm in diameter by 17mm thick case made from Stainless steel. There are two case finishes available: stain finished or possibly a black IP coating. If it was DLC they would surely say.



The case is fitted with a knurled diverís bezel, an HEV and said device on the left lateral side of the case (possibly a functioning bezel lock or perhaps the HEV in disguise, I donít know).



Further diverís features include: a screw-down case-back and guarded crown as well as 1000 meters of water-resistance. There is no mention of the crystal quality so we should assume that itís mineral in this instance.



Power comes from Miyota Cal. 2415 Quartz movement. Four references are offered Ė the blue ones are kindaí cool in truth but these arenít really my cuppaí tea. MSRP is an optimistic 499euro which includes shipping.
