The overall fit & finish of the case and bracelet is excellent and they actually look like they’ve been made for each other rather than some other companies that use off the shelf components. If I had to find any negatives of the bracelet, 100% it would be the pin and collar system that’s used for resizing. It is a total and utter ball-ache. I’ve had this before and when the watch arrived and I seen the bracelet and how it’s resized, there was a lot of swearing! Eventually though, I did manage to get the bracelet sized perfectly. It’s just as well you don’t have to size the bracelet very often. Once it’s done, you can forget about it and then of course apologise to everyone that’s come near you whilst you were trying to adjust it.
The chosen movement for the SWC Diver is the Sellita SW200-1 automatic. An excellent calibre that is a 28,800vph, 4Hz smooth sweep, 26 jewel movement with self winding and of course, hacking. Checking the accuracy after running the SWC Diver for a couple of weeks, mainly on my wrist and occasionally in my Barrington Watch Winder, I was more than happy with the accuracy, with it showing an average of +3.2 seconds per day. Very nice indeed!
