T•a•c•t•i•c•o TC1 2ndLook

By TLex T•a•c•t•i•c•o is a specialized military division of CREPAS Watches, Spain. Their first project the TC1 is a technical dive watch with a distinct modern military feel to it. Its case, which measures 43.8mm x 16.25mm and is constructed from solid 316L stainless steel might be recognizable as sharing the same design that is used by the legendary KOBOLD, but that's another story.



This case features a brushed finish, has been fitted with a 3.3mm thick double domed sapphire crystal, an HEV (9 o'clock) and 60-click unidirectional rotational divers bezel with enlarged luminous triangle at 12. Its water-resistance of 100 atmos or 1000 meters is maintained by double gaskets of Viton and Tefzel and a screwdown crown and caseback. It also anti-magnetic to 70,000 A/m.



The dial, which is almost sterile except for some subtle black on black text makes use of C3 Superluminova for its hour markers and hands. Stealthy black SuperLuminova has been used for the T•a•c•t•i•c•o logo and brand name. Under the hood is a top-grade ETA 2824-2 Swiss mechanical movement. Each watch comes on a 22mm handmade custom leather strap from master strap maker Jacob Straps of Spain.
