Carl Blashal Trilogy
To celebrate the life and times of the first African American diver in the US Navy, the first amputee Master Diver, Carl Brashear, the first 42mm Oris Carl Brashear time scale and date were introduced in 2016. The eye-catching bronze case made a sensation, the brand. Two years later, another 43 mm bronze Carl Brashear chronograph was introduced. As a watch designed to commemorate this famous African American diver, a sixty-five-year-old vintage style diver watch is natural.
The third Carl Brashear replica watch has many functions with the previous model, but has undergone a major upgrade in the movement department. The new model no longer relies on an outsourced movement (usually provided by Sellita), but the first watch equipped with Oris Caliber 401 (automatic second hand).
Caliber 400 and 401
You will remember that Oris launched Calibre 400 in October 2020. This is a powerful automatic movement with a 5-day power reserve and a 10-year warranty. The 400 movement is a proprietary manufacturing movement, which means that although it was developed entirely in-house by Chief Operating Officer Beat Fischli and his team, it is produced by a network of suppliers with the latest industrial technology. It is estimated that the precision of Caliber 400 is much more accurate than that of a chronograph (-3 to +5 seconds per day). It has a double barrel, which can store power for five days (120 hours), and a silicon escapement can offset it. Magnetic force, and a new type of pendulum developed based on a low-friction, sliding bearing system that only winds in one direction to reduce long-term wear. The first watch to benefit from this new automatic movement is the 43.5mm Aquis Date model.
Less than three months after the introduction of the new automatic movement, Oris fake introduced the second movement in the automatic movement series. The difference between the two movements is that the Caliber 401 movement displays the small seconds at 6 o’clock instead of the central seconds.
Bronze is the natural choice for this situation. This material is not only reminiscent of the diving helmet worn by Carl Brashear during his career as a US Navy diver, but bronze has also become a popular metal for watch cases. Another good news is that the case size of Carl Brashear movement 401 is smaller than earlier models. A compact product with a diameter of 40mm, with a reduced diameter, will attract many fans. The 100m waterproof bronze case with screw-in crown has the same sandblasted unidirectional rotating bronze bezel with scale embossed. The bottom cover is sealed, and it is engraved with Carl Brashear’s diving helmet and his inspirational text: “It is not a sin to be knocked down, and it is not a sin to be overwhelmed.”
Navy blue dial
Inspired by Carl Brashear’s career in the U.S. Navy, the dial is dark navy blue with gilded minute diameters and large gold hour markers, and the hands are filled with lightweight Super-LumiNova. , To enhance the sense of retro. The small second hand is at 6 o’clock and the hands are also processed. Unlike the other two models, the words marked “WATER RESISTANT 10BAR / 100M” have been bent to adapt to the curvature of the small second dial. Inside the small seconds dial, the 5-day power reserve of the new movement is also engraved in white.
