An intro to the basic freediving essential
Today, we are going to take a look at a pretty robust diver from Ratio Watches, a company that recently surfaced and made a bang with their range of products. It’s quite surprising how they could stuff in an A-grade quality at an E-grade price. The Ratio II FreeDiver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-01 Men’s Watch is a brilliant example of a high-quality, affordable pro-level diver watch that also works as good on land. It fulfills every bit the criteria for freediving before delving for the deep zone. With hi-tech submersibles catching up fast, visiting the beach might grow obsolete soon. The future is deep sea ocean tourism. It’s becoming popular day by day, so diving essentials are a must! Let’s start with the Ratio II FreeDiver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-01 Men’s Watch.
Ideas & Inspirations
The Ratio II FreeDiver Helium-Safe 1000M Automatic 1068HA90-34VA-01 Men’s Watch adopts from some of the bests in the Swiss and Jap categories yet maintains a separate identity instead of becoming a homage. That removes a lot of complaints and makes the Ratio II FreeDiver an interesting watch. It’s pretty big and slightly heavy, but with the gauge and quality of the stainless steel (316L i.e. surgical grade) and the sapphire crystal, it got to be. The silicon rubber band is thick and adds a bit to the overall mass. The finishing is real good and generates a very positive impression right away!
The bezel, crown and the helium-release knob – all are pretty typical in their size and heft for a diving watch. The crown is screw down and its actions feel good. It is easy to grip and wind; same with the turning bezel with the serrate edges at every quadrant. The helium valve is at 2. Use it in case of a rapid ascension in a submersible or in a diving bell or in an atmospheric diving suit, if you have gone under 250 feet or 80 m for more than 30 minutes.
The NH36A caliber movement is from Seiko; it’s more recent and based on the caliber 7S26. The NH36 has 24 jewels, shows day/date; has center-seconds hand and allows hacking and manual winding. The sapphire crystal is deep set within the bezel while the case back is curved or bowl-shaped. That makes it sit easier on the wrist.
