This is the Oceanmaster I Ref. ANN0832 from Andersmann, which boasts a number of really lovely aesthetic features.

Starting with its dial; this is a special texturized sandwich dial in matte black with luminous markers.

The dial’s design is quite minimalist with the only hour markers, a few simple lines of text and the smallest hint of color from the water-resistance text, which is in red; a possible nod to those special edition Submariners from COMEX and of course the blue of the seconds indicator.

The watch case is in high-grade Stainless steel with a matte black DLC (diamond-like-carbon) coating. The case has a simple design with flat sides on the right where the crown guard is and more rounded feel on the other side.

For a change we see a modern diver that has not felt the need for such superfluous features as an HEV; helping to maintain the clean lines of the watch.

The case measures 47mm in diameter with a thickness of 17.6mm, a lug-to-lug measurement of 56mm and a lug-width of 26mm.

Divers features of the Oceanmaster I include: a screwdown crown, a 4mm thick double curved Sapphire crystal with a smoked anti-reflective coating and an anti-clockwise unidirectional rotational black DLC divers bezel.

The divers bezel has an engraved dive-time scale with a polish silver circular 12hr marker that has been with a vintage-orange luminous material.
Water-resistance is to 1000 meters.

On the caseback is yet another 4mm thick smoked Sapphire crystal; only this time it is flat. Beneath it is a custom Andersmann rotor that has been decorated with pearlage.
This rotor powers a Swiss made ETA 2892-A2 automatic movement with hours, minutes, seconds and a 42 hours of power-reserve.

The Oceanmaster is priced 1480CHF. It has a limited production of just 100 pieces per year.

It comes on a personalized natural rubber divers strap with a steel buckle with a matte black DLC coating.
