After buying 3 new Ocean Crawlers in the past, I asked Christian Champion to let me check out one of the demoís they have to share with the world. And here we are ! I will ship it back to him whenever he asks. There hasnít been a day I havenít worn it since it arrived 4 days ago. I donít do reviews as I only ask do this with watches I really love visually. I donít ever wanna give you all a super biased overhyped review so here are some thoughts.
Itís a perfect (to me) 44mm by 50mm lug to lug. It really wows me but not like Iím used to. Itís super understated from the top looking down but you can see the great finish immediately and how sweet the polished edge of the fixed bezel makes the watch look.
It came with a perfectly fitted orange rubber thatís not long enough for my 8.5in wrist, but thatís a given forever for me.
Hereís a closer look at the sandwich dial
Iím a big fan of dual crowns but this one has a sweet little surprise that nobody will probably ever notice, in real life, except for the owner. And I love it ! The casesides !
And pretty decent C3 lume that never disappoints
And last but not least:
Hereís what it looks like on rubber. Picture taken by Ty Alexander:
If you have a Core Diver, the Paladino will wear a smidgen smaller. The Champion Diver wears about the same. The Navigator wears considerably smaller than the Paladino.
Feel free to ask me anything or even comment negatively.
I really love the retro vibe they gave to a Bremont inspired case. As a person that loves orange but always end up selling every single orange dial I buy, I can really appreciate the orange aluminum case sides. Just enough orange for me.
