RTA109
It retains the grains of its role model – the SKX, which it closely resembles, also in terms of its depth rating. This Ratio FreeDiver White Dial Stainless Steel Automatic RTA109 200M is built after the SKX; its legendary status needs no mention. It fills the gap left by the SKX. The Ratio FreeDiver watches are not just an entry point to the world of just divers’ watches but, as a matter of fact, they represent an entry point into the world of genuine divers’ watches.

Product Description

RTA109: Readied for the rough. Reminds of a legend.

Defining points for the Ratio FreeDiver White Dial Sapphire Crystal Stainless Steel Automatic RTA109 200M Men's Watch

  • Impressive, zero-distortion domed sapphire with a slightly bluish tinge. It is stronger than flat crystals of the same thickness and disperses impacts more efficiently. It is less likely to shatter and/or crack than a flat crystal. It is also more scratch-proof than other types of crystals

  • 4’o clock crown minimizing chances of wrist bites and easier operability both on and off wrist. This position makes the crown less likely to catch onto obstacles when diving and is a more ergonomic choice while engaged in vigorous activities. Besides, it helps in reducing the overall width of the watch and needless saying, this off-beat position of the crown also increases its aesthetic appeal.

6 reasons why you should go for the Ratio FreeDiver White Dial Sapphire Crystal Stainless Steel Automatic RTA109 200M Men's Watch

  • This watch is readied for hard-hitting jobs. A solidly-built, aesthetically-pleasing watch, the Ratio FreeDiver White Dial Sapphire Crystal Stainless Steel Automatic RTA109 200M Men's Watch is an all-round instrument for marine enthusiasts and desk-divers alike. It’s the first Freediver series to use the domed sapphire crystal, its beauty a bluish tinge that made it an instant hit among young and matured adults alike.

  • This is an excellent, everyday tool watch both for urban surroundings and outdoors. Whatever your job might be - unless there’s a formal dress code – you can wear the RTA109 anytime you like. It’s always ready for the rough!

  • The RTA109 200M Men's Watch is built all in thick-gauge surgical steel. It adds both strength and heft to the watch, only that it’s not so much of a heft. It just exerts an assuring pressure on the wrist, that’s all about it. Its construction (case, screw-down crown, engraved case-back w/image of a free diver and the deployment clasp) helps to increase the momentum of your hand rather than tying you down with its weight. The sapphire crystal, too, offers high resistance against damaging water pressure (equivalent to pressure exerted by a 200m high water column on the watch’s surface area) and its curved shape is a big aid in minimising water pressure right above the watch. The whole construction efficiently handles physical impacts (including violent tugs) and magnetic fields from everyday electronic and electrical equipment.

The crystal, the case and the Freediver-etched case back together protect the Japanese mechanical movement (with its own shock/antimagnetic features) together against violent knocks, bumps and drops.

  • A large sized dial made of brass and painted using silkscreen technique; a day/date window and prominent hands and hour markers offer maximum visibility under murky environments and when under pressing situations. This is so much like the SKX. You do not have to squint to focus on the dial to read the time, day/date or the bezel/timer reading. A big advantage is the Japan lume-filled prominent hour markers (especially at 12, 6 and 9); they are big, bright and with an almost infinite longevity. It also ensures longer hours of illumination.

  • The serrated bezel and the grooved crown facilitate a firm grip with wet fingers, with or without gloves on. It is advised not to operate the crowns under wet/immersed conditions.

  • The hour and minute hands of the RTA109 are unique in their shapes. The hour and minute hands are a mix between arrow, syringe and sword shapes while the seconds-hand is an improvisation on the sword-style with a lume-filled circle at the tail-end. All the hands are sumptuously filled with Japan-made lume the hour markers alike. The lume dot on the bezel ensures you do not miss out on the correct time-reading.

Ratio FreeDiver White Dial Sapphire Crystal Stainless Steel Automatic RTA109 200M Men's Watch: A sum up of all the goodness

The Ratio FreeDiver Sapphire Crystal RTA109 200M Men's Watch is a great tool watch that anyone who takes water sports seriously should give a try. Its specs match that of any pro-grade diver watch but the cost doesn’t. The Ratio FreeDiver White Dial Sapphire Crystal Stainless Steel Automatic RTA109 200M Men's Watch wears a tag that’s unbelievably lower than the rest in its league. You’ll be hard-pressed to find another watch from another brand that offers the same at the cost.

Luminescence

Ratio uses Japanese luminescent paint for the luminescence in the Freediver 200m watch. It is a non-radioactive, radiant paint that's applied generously on the hands and the indices of the Freediver. The paint exhibits greater intensity and longer-lasting luminescence. Its output duration doesn’t let you compromise on visibility; let it even be for a few extra hours in the dark! A 10-minutes long exposure to 500 lux or higher intensity light will charge the lume for the next 3-5 hours. A continuous 8-hour exposure to Sunlight on a normal summer day will let it glow for 10+ hours. The longevity of the paint is semi-permanent, ensuring full functionality of the watch even after years of active use.

I’m not a watch guy

So I’m not a watch guy. I can’t go into detail about whether or not this is a good watch. I do know that it looks really nice and I can wear this to formal events where I don’t want an Apple Watch on my wrist. So for me it’s a great watch!

Phenomenal value and build quality

I was so surprised how well made this watch is. Case polishing isn't Grand Seiko but hey it was $150 USD. Lovely watch!!

K

For a mechanical watch at this price point, the full sapphire crystal, screw-in crown at 4 o'clock, and ceramic bezel insert are impressive.

Super Watch.

This Watch has a lot of the Seiko SKX Design Language, but it is not a cheap Copy at . Inside is the Seiko NH36A DayDate (NH35A Date) Movement, an accurate reliable Workhorse for its Price. Mine has a Deviation of -5 Sec/24h. Over, my RTA109 has a very good build Quality for its Price (160.-), despite minor Downsides. Yes, it is on the heavy Side quite high with 15mm. But this is not a Dresswatch, it is a Diver for sporty Looks up to smart Casual. Thumbs up for: Sapphire Glass with AR Coating, 200m WR, good aligned Bezel with Ceramic Inlay, Non-Rattling Bracelet (which seems to be solid), 22m Lug width, Seiko NH36A/NH35A, over impressive Quality for its Price.
