    Default Dievas Watches?

    Hi Folks

    I've been looking at Dievas watches and I'm wondering if anyone has any experiences or just some thoughts on the styling. I'm really interested in their modern takes on some old classics:

    Here is their take on a Flieger.



    which is (kinda) inspired by this old cockpit instrument:



    I'm also fond of this Italian Navy homage:



    Opinions, gentlemen?

    cheers

    Not seen these before (other than Gary's Mesoplagic, Metamorphic or whatever it was, but it was entirely different).
    I quite like the idea of a Flieger type watch with a discrete and skinny bezel. The case looks pleasingly nice too with screwed bars and a nice shape to the lugs. Not sure about quite such a spherical crown, of the traditional designs I prefer the conical one, but understand it would be much more uncomfortable.

    I think there may be one too many colours going on too, with white numerals on a black dial with red 12-hr marker and hands, which have blue centres.

    If the 12-hr marker and the hour minute hands were white, it would look more traditional, and imho a little better.

    I am not sure I like the clearly modern font on the numerals either.

    As regards the Italian hommage, I'm afraid that style just leaves me cold, really cold. It just isn't my bag

    I can see the fun in the sandwich dial, but that sub-second dial would really annoy me, it looks really small. And I am not sure that gold hands to match a gold crown when everything else is PVD (or similar) works.

    I Love the hands in the old cockpit instrument - why is no-one using that design?

    Cheers

    If it's Lemania-powered, I'm interested. Tool Chrono - interested. Dive Chrono - interested. Interesting - interested

    Aren't all the Italian style divers a bit of a rip-off, including Panerai, in the same way that fleigers were done by a whole heap of different folk in "that" style, and (arguably) IWC became the most prominent brand for them? Isn't Panerai just the IWC of Italian Divers? (I expect I am completely wrong here

    cheers
